i think summitracing.com carries these, I'd compare the shipping prices.

Doesn't Kumho make a really cool looking mud terrain tire??? Nobody sells it, I've seen a couple side shots that showed a little bit of tread...

ya they are hella expensive, maybe its just my vendor that discontinued the kumhos.. They actually look better in person that on that pic too. I know a few that runs them and they are pretty good in the mud and good wear as well.

The BFGs should be way less than the MT/Rs

Did you check out the site??? They have a really good selection and decent shipping prices. Not to mention if you buy 4 tires you can get the No Questions Asked Warranty thing and shipping is free usually it comes out to a couple bucks more than with the shipping.
