    I agree the tires and wheels seem high.

    Try pricing the tires on discount tire direct to see how bad the mark up is.

    Paid around $305 (at 4 wheel parts in Charlotte) each for my BFG KM2's.....315/75/16 (about 35"). Can't remember for sure what they were with mount/balance.....maybe another $40 per tire. Just a comparison for ya.

    I will add, if I were to buy tires again, I wouldn't buy toyo's, i'd look at duratrac's or hankook dynapro atm. I know les schwab pushes toyos a lot... mine are scary in wet or snow conditions.

    I hate Schwabs!!

    Get wheels n tires elsewhere.

    Americas tire is amazing and the customer service is top notch. Find what you want and get pricing from 4 or 5 places. If Americas Tire carries what you want,Give them the lowest price you got elswhere and they will beat it by 10% (I think it was 10%) .

    I got my 35"s for under a grand!:cool:

    EDIT: looks like you would have to drive to Coeur d'Alene for the nearest dealer!
