Alcoa price?

How much do alcoas normally go for? Im really wanting some and if i could find some for a decent price and in decent condition id go ahead and get em and sell my teardrops with the crappy wranglers that are about half tread to pay for the alcoas and go with some 33x12.50 BFG at's.

I've seen them sell for 400 for a set of 4. I've seen upwards of 600 for a set of 4 as well. 400 is about as cheap as i've seen 'em sell for.


I wouldn't suggest 12.50's on 7" rim.

I wouldn't run 12.50's on a 7" wheel either.
I'm running 35x12.50's on 18x7.5" wheels right now (shorter sidewall even), and they do seem to "float" a little in the turns, and I have to keep my pressure down for decent wear. It's not bad, but I notice it.
The most narrow wheel I would want to run a 12.5 on is an 8" wheel, 9" would be ideal imo.
