    OK because i KNOW there are 4 million derailed topics on where to buy etc

    i need to know some places on WHERE to buy tires


    I do need to know the best places online to shop though and id like to know if anyone has shopped for tires online and where theyve had good luck



    up until now ive never had to buy from a tire dealer...i bought my Trxus MTs from a local offroad shop and then my BFGs came from a guy on TTORA...so im in unfamiliar territory as far as where to buy

    Any suggestions?

    Also...is anyone interested in a set of 255/85/16 BFG MTs (original tread NOT KM2s) for pretty cheap with a good bit of tread left?

    I've bought MT's from both http://www.savontires.com/ and http://www.onlinetires.com/
    Savon tires has free shipping, online tires has almost everything in stock.
    Both ship very fast.
    I might be interested in your MT's depending how much tread is left. And if you would ship.. :D

    yeah, discount tire, tirerack.com, or if you have a Tire Factory store near you I've had good luck with them. Also, might check ebay. I got my BFGs from 'Patriot tire' off ebay for a hella good price shipped to my door.

    so far it looks like discounttiredirect has the best deal

    online tires had the tires im looking at for $133.97/tire but shipping costs made the total $680

    discount tire direct had them at $153.00/tire but free shipping + warranty for each tire total comes to $689

    gonna hit the local places tomorrow and see what they say
