Don't we have someone on here who can get us the hookup on some tow pig tars? If the money is right, I'd rather put my money in one of ya'lls pockets than a discount tire or whatever.

Looking for some 285/65r18 a/t's load range E. I'm honestly leaning toward the BFG ko2 T/A, but I'm open to suggestions.

Sadly almost nobody can beat online pricing shipped directly to you. I don't recommend amazon but you can use amazon to locate the actual origin of the tire warehouse.

Then call them directly to side step amazon. They'll ship directly to you. Seriously, nobody can beat that pricing

The problem I’ve run into with that is if you bring your own tires to a tire shop they charge you double or more to mount and balance and all that crap

Check with Zayne and see what kind of deal he can get you.

A good friend of mine owns a mechanic shop/tire shop/wrecker service. He has always told me to go ahead and order them online and he'll mount them up for me. He doesn't mind just making the $ on the labor. He knows I can buy the tires online cheaper than he can get them from his supplier.

the problem with that is that Luke is an easy 2 hour drive each way from Zayne

Yea. I figured it was a long shot. But I thought it’d at least be worth asking

When I ordered tires I went through 4wd Hardware and Ebates. They do 10% cash back sometimes and that’s when I ordered. Between no sales tax, free shipping, manufacture rebate and Ebates, I ended up at about $800 for mine.

I solve that by mounting them myself, and just taking them to the tire store for balancing.

Step 1 hook trailer to truck.
Step 2 place tire under trailer jack.
Step 3 crank that sucker down.

Not sure why I never considered that safer and more controlled method. I’ve done more tires than I care to think about using a hi lift jack and the bumper of my rig. Sometimes the jack wants to kick out before you get enough weight on the bead to break it. Fun stuff
