^^^ Man, that seems expensive. I got my wheels (MB 72's) and tires (33x12.50x15s) for 300 bucks less then that from Discount.

Why are there 5? Are you using one for a spare? Might as well save a little bit of money and keep your regular spare where it is. Or If you don't have one, just go grab a cheapy. And just use 2wd to get yourself home or to a shop...(Unless you are using it for 4 wheeling purpose. As in you go on pretty hairy trails.) In which case, disregard me previous statement.

you also have installation, lifetime rotation stuff on their. you can have them mounted and baanced and install yourself. thats another cost there. looks right costwise to me.

I'd walk into Discount and ask them to work with you on the price. I'd bet they'd take some money off for you. They have for me, at least.

like wyldchild said go their...You might also want to go to a few other places and see what deals they can give you. Get some quotes and see if you can get a price match plus like 10% off or something? Just a thought.

Happy on how they look like, I thought they would be a little bigger, but that'd do it !

On an edge or 4x4 you dont want to run anything smaller then a 33 with a BL. You can run 32's comfortably with a mild tbar crank. 31's are just a hair larger then stock tires.

Take them back. I'm pretty sure if your unhappy with them they give you a few days to return them....

I would get 32's.

Raining all day here so no time for pics, but I'm kinda liking the 31s, not EXACTLY what I was expecting but not disappointed at all.
Not really sure if they would take them back without having to pay some high stupid restocking fee and not just the plain difference.

I Know pictures are always welcomed here, so I'm gonna post a few of the finished set I bought on craigslist more than a month ago. After some paint they're going to Craigslist again .... what do you think is a fair price for the set considering what you know about ranger parts?

Rims are Ford 15" and tires are BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM2 31x10.5x15LT
