FINALLY!!!!!!!!!

ORDERED TIRES!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!! AHHH!!!!!

Went to tireman, they wanted like $723 out the door for 32" BFG AT, ehhh no.

Then they tried to sell me those wild country's made by a cooper brand.... ehhh no.

THEN i went to discount tire, they wanted $767 of the BFGs, BUT today was the last day for a BGF/Michelin special which is a $70 mail in rebate. okay that lowered it, but then if we did it on their card, no interest, 6 months term, and another $50 mail in rebate on top of that. I will pay them right away, but it still helped to do it on their card. so total was $647.


Now my question, they do tire siping there for and extra ten bucks, the guy really recommended it for MTs and said it would be okay for AT's too, but idk, im going in either tuesday or wednesday to get them, and get them mounted/balanced etc. im thinking no, unless it will help and worth a few bucks. idk im just gunna decide off what you guys say bc i have no idea.

ANYWAYS! expect pictures either tues or wednesday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Siping is a big help on M/T's (done it on a few of mine before), but I hear the BFG A/T's work well as is.

Siping**** is when they make really fine cuts in the tread in order to gain more wet traction.

And WOW that looks way better than i thought! Cant wait now!!!!!!
