Price on BFG MT's

Whats a good price for BFG MT's 31x10.5x15 mounted and balanced ? I was quoted $642.63 for 4 mounted, balance, and tax. I guess thats like $160ish a piece,including MD tax is 5%.

that seems a little high... i got BFG AT's in the same size for about $500 or so... if that includes road hazard and lifetime rotation and balancing then it may be an okay price since the MT's are a little more expensive than the AT's... give tire kingdom a call or if they dont have that up there try NTB since they are the same company

here you go Ben - they are probably in stock at your local COSTCO
$147.99 and all the same good things Billy lists above... plus they fill them with nitrogen

that's where I got mine but it took a week because they are not really a standard size

it is dryer and inert and because of that it does not change volume as readily as straight air which naturally contains moisture
nitrogen fill is better for my machined aluminum wheels
the nitrogen molecules are thicker than oxygen so they can not leak out as easily - less need to check aire pressure
should last 3-4 times as long as the stuff we are sucking in with no change in pressure
properly inflated tires, last longer plus give better mileage and stopping power

the fill up was free with the tire purchase
I have read that some garages charge $5-6 bucks a tire for a fill up
COSTCO offers free rotation and inflation
I actually have never aired down in all my off road trips

that is what that switch on the dash is for

I dunno. I have a couple switches on the dash, but none of them would do me any good off road.. I do however have this nifty lever on the floor next to the shifter. Crazy things happen when you pull on that lever!

Yeah I am going to check out costco next time I am in there. This price was from the place I was getting my tires before I joined costco.
