Summit will price match, they have good prices. I picked mine up from www.4wheelparts.com as they had a gift card at the time.

I know its too late but i picked my 32's at 4 wheel parts. They had a 60 dollar instant rebate and it came out to 467....really cheap. It was only through the 28th of Feb but you should check them out cause i think it would still be a decent price.

Costco sucks....I went to them to get a price and I gave them my tire size and they looked it up and they were like..."Umm...you are only supposed to run 245s on that truck not 265s..(which I currently have). So we can only put 245s on there cuz thats the manufactred suggested size and we cant go bigger. So yeah...no Costco for me.

Go here:

Pick up the phone call every single one close to you and talk pricing. Ask for the manager, the sales people don't have the authority to make significant price drops.

I got my BFG at's 33x12.5x15 at discount tire for $700 OTD which included mounting, balancing, rotations, and free replacement warranty.

What I did was called all the tire shops in town several times and took the lowest quote of $ 615and had discount price match then added in the free replacement warranty $23 a tire + tax which brought it to 700 OTD. When I called discount for quotes it was between $825-$950 depending on the store and sales person.

I also used Discount. They price matched 4 wheel parts. I didn't have the choice of waiting for a sale because I needed a spare. I am very cautions like that. Out the door I was a tad over $900. I hate the tire prices for 16" rims. I still saved about $100 over Discount so I was happy.

+1 i'm a big discount tire fan. they have great service, they fix your flat for free, and the prices are right there with anybody. and don't forget the greatness of the road-force balance. it'll make those big tires roll smooth as glass.

But what if I am not buying new wheels and I just wan the tires? For summit to compare to the $520 price at discount they would have to knock at least $40 off for the instillation, then the cost of shipping and what if you don't have a jcak and stands to rotate tires, or maybe someone has better things to do with their time.

15-30 minutes on either of my days off = trip to discount tire for rotation. Of course that was back when I didn't have jack stands and a floor jack. Only problem now is locating the electric impact gun somewhere in my mom's garage in a town 1 hour away from here.

Not to mention discount's tire warranty. Tire takes a crap, discount replaces.

Lifetime rotation and balances...yeah if I'm gonna pay for the service why not use it. Unless someone wants to buy a computerized tire balancer for me?
