Discount Tire....cost is okay, but the warranty per tire is awesome...I'm glad i got it myself having to replace one of my BFGs after only a week....only had to pay $10 as opposed to $120 something.

Most places wont go up sizes on your tires including wal mart, what i had to do is buy tires and have them put on at a local shop. Most chain places, wal mart, tire ware house, ntb etc etc. dont want the liability of "brake failure due to oversize tires 2 times the size of factory"


Anywho, go to 4wheelparts.com they are dirt cheap, they got pro comps, buy 3 get one free, or any tire really, and theyll match or beat any competitors price, i just bout 4 rims and tires mounted and balanced shipped to my door for $1150.

if you can not convince COSTCO to put them on just bring in the rims and they will mount and balance
of course only do this after pricing out the best full cost of mounting your new skins against what they will charge, it might still be worth it
I did get COSTCO to mount my 33 BFG M/T tires

WHAT KIND OF BUDDY DOES NOT HOOK YOU UP??

i got General Grabber AT2 tires, from Tirerack.com for $90 a tire. 26/70/16 I could have had them mounted for free thru my buddy, but I couldnt wait 6 months for him to get around to it, and there is NO room in our shop for his tire machine... so total cost for tires + mounting was $495 their a knock off of the bfg's but I think they look beefier IMHO.

heres some pics for u to drool over. the pictures dont do these tires and ounce of justice





Some on this forum say that you should just 'save up' to buy the bfgs, but some of us are poor and cant afford their exorbant price, like me and you. I have had these tires in the snow and ice and they do great..... the get up and go traction in snow is pretty good, but the stopping traction in snow and slush and on ice.... better be wearing your seat belt cause they stop on a dime! mud and dirt traction is also really good...

more pics:

^^ i do like those... does general make 32's? im sure my buddy would mount em for me... that wouldnt be a problem but they wont let him order oversized tires unless he mounts them on his vehicle

You could check treadepot.com. They are carrying the general at2's that fmd has on his truck with shipping to me is $97 a tire. Not a bad price and cheaper for me then any other site. Thank you fmd for the pics of the generals.
