    Just a shot in the dark here but does anyone have a hookup on getting tires at a great price? Id even trade drums for tires! I see the decent deals from our vendors but I know they can be had for less.

    i.e. - I build a drum set in Taiwan and pay $460 bucks for it. I sell it to the local music store for $750 and the store sells it to the end user for $1199. After seeing how the markups work it kills me to pay full price for anything now.

    That is a good price and thanks for the heads up. I got my bumper and bull bar from them. I like those guys.

    The thing that kills me is that I know they are paying around 500 for them. I need to start importing tires! LOL

    My new tires and wheels just got delivered today. 33x13.50 R15 Super Swamper LTBs on Procomp 15x8 black steel wheels. Paid $1351.24 (including the shipping) for them from 4wheelparts. Had to call them to get a package deal with the tires mounted and balanced on the wheels, center caps, and new lug nuts. The price they gave me on the phone beat the online price by about $100 and the price the 4wheelparts store around the corner from me quoted me by about $300 (what's up with that, anyway???)

    Something to think about if you're looking for wheels too.

    I totally agree just wish I could cut out the middle man and save some coin. LOL Once you realize what things really cost it's so hard to pay retail again.

    I'll be putting them on later today. Pics are definitely forthcoming. I just hope I'm not going to have to butcher the fenders too badly because the things look ginormous sitting in the house. :eek:

    Very patiently. Pm'd him twice. No response, no sticker for about a year now. Still waiting in hopes that one magically shows up at my door.
