Right now they are running a $100 off purchace of 4 wheels or 4 tires. I bought my subaru snow tires from them last time they were doing this discount...and my 31x10.50s as well. PLUS, FREE SHIPPING!! Just thought i'd throw that out there.


Hard to find a 16" tire in that size and perform the way you want for $500. Sorry...someone had to say it.

Hey bro, ive got my 31" at's on stock rims that i may be willing to part with. They have less than 5k on them..

Now, i wouldnt be able to get rid of them until the lift kit gets put on, and i get my new tires on.. So it could be a lil while.. PM me if you are interested

in order to find new 265's shipped to your door, after taxes for $500 you need a tire thats about $100 (and that's not gonna happen)

Like said before, $500 wont get you good tires. Keep saving, and check craigslist....great deals can be had off there. I got 5 75% 265/75r16 Toyo Open Country AT's for $100!

Those are some sweet tires. personally i went with STT which seems to work a little better. The side lugs on the STT dig alot better than ST. STT also has the tread on the side walls. i got mine for like 650 bux
