    So i went to a local chevy dealer who is running a special right now on tires (buy 4, get free mount and balance). im looking to get a set of 265/75/16 nitto TG's and they say the can have them on the truck for $720 straight up (no tax). just wondering what you all paid, if you think this is a respectable price, and if anyone has any recommendations on getting them (buying, mounting, balancing) cheaper.

    thanks

    Do it, thats a deal.

    I'm shopping for the same exact tires/size. The best I have been able to find online was from Discount Tires Direct for $177 (tires only). I got the local Discount Tires to match the tire price, but when you factor in the sales tax, mounting, tire fee, etc I'm easily pushing over $850.

    A while back, few months, I was quoted almost a grand for all that from Discount Tire. I didn't take it decided on some a little more in my budget.

    TG's? Are you are referring to Terra Grapplers or Trail Grapplers, big difference in product and price.

    I am assuming Terra since the Trails don't come in a 265/16.

    thanks guys, i was referring to the terra grapplers. firefighter, i didnt mention the TPMS swap, though they did say mount and balance was free with the tires so id hold them to that. they offer basic alignments for $69.99, so im going to see if i can use the 'poor college kid/ive shopped here before/cash in hand' trick to get alignment included for like $750.

    Yeah your gonna want your TPMS sensors back on the truck and working IMO. Haha, yeah try and talk them down on pricing. But if they include the TPMS swap and you still have to pay the $69 for an alignment, $790 still isnt bad. Are you sure you even need an alignment?

    My buddy partners with a wheel/tire shop here in Denver for his business. He got me my 17" XD Addicts for $125/wheel and my 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers for $150/tire. All mounted and balanced with no additional charges, but I guess that is what pays for having friends in the wheel/tire business.

    go to tirebuyer.com and order your tires there i believe they were 133 a tire with free shipping if i remember correctly then you can get them mounted and balanced pretty cheap at the tire store and you should come out around 40 bucks cheaper than the price the tire shop is giving you. but if your set on using that shop take the deal it is a good one

    Sounds reasonable. Just put a set of 265/70/17 NTGs on my truck. my total was $897 out the door.

    That included mounting balancing, road hazard warranty on the tires, an alignment and of course tax
