    sup. where are you guys buying your tires from on oahu. i prefer not to order and have it shipped. last time i bought tires was from firestone - i got destination ATs. was a good price from what i can remember.

    im looking for 265/75 16 AT. i would get the destinations again as they were great on my titan, but just wanted something a little more aggressive looking.

    -trying to keep price low, i think i was out the door for about $650 when i got the destination at. would be great if it were that much.

    4wheelparts in Waipahu is where everyone told me to go. They got some of the best pricing.

    I ended up going to Goodyear in Kaneohe. I worked with Scot over there and he pric matched 4 wheelparts, swapped my TPMS, and personally oversaw my install for about $700 less than it would've been to order my tires thru Discount tire warehouse/Tire rack. If you want an aggressive AT, I don't think there's anything as gnarly looking as the Duratrac's.

    agreed on the duratracs. some of the best looking A/T's IMO.

    I did end up going with 4wheelparts. ordered online with the ship to store option. got a call later that the tires were on back order for 5 weeks. decided to go ahead with the order anyway.

    used the treadlightly rebate($100) and the goodyear rebate($60).

    p rated, rides nice but they are a bit noisy.
