Price and choice check on this wheel/tire package

What do ya'll think of this tire package selection and price? If all goes well I should be getting these sooooon. I had a chat with my pops the other day and I forgot he sold my old car. So there is a little money coming my way to help out with getting new tires/wheels.

I'm also going to print this out and take it to local shops to see if they'll match/beat it. Any feedback?

click on the warranty option. Lifetime warranty gives you free shipping. The price is like 7 bucks more or something.

yea, they aren't MT's, just steel wheels.

Is what you just posted from summit, a good backspacing?

yep. its a good one.

dont get steelies, you will have trouble with balancing and they weigh a ton, plus rust.

Omg, steelies are so hard to balance, I highly reccomend alloys. I spent just as much on steelies balancing them as how much it would have cost to upgrade!!!

i paid $99 a piece for 15x10 Mickey thompson Classic II's......and $139 a tire for BFG all terrains and $40 shipped with free mounting and balancing...the backspacing zabeard gave you from summit is incorrect....the Ranger backspacing needs to be 3.75"...MT wheels are measured in standard measurments........

o and if there is a 4 wheel parts in your state you have to pay sales tax...no matter were you buy it from them at...

i call BS!

Mickey Thompson only makes 1! that is ONE! 15x8 Classic II in 5x4.5 lug pattern, and it has a 3-5/16" backspacing, which is 3.3125, which is what i posted.

Jared along with many others run this exact wheel.
proof in the pics.

Wait...its actually more than 6 bucks cause Summit will charge an additional 11 bucks per tire for shipping. So I'm looking at around 50 bucks more from Summit than from 4Wheelparts in Ohio.

Called Sean, nice guy. They are able to offer cheaper prices cause BFG and MT factories are right in the Cleveland area.

Final price for BFG's and MTs, discounted, mounted, balanced, includes caps, shipping....

$896.92



Only 22 bucks difference between tirepackage.com and Sean @ 4wheelparts w/ discount.

cool, is that 22 bucks worth the extra wait time on slow shipping? that'd be my only concern.

Tirepackage.com doesn't give the option to put down a Canadian billing address w/ a U.S shipping addy ...so if Sean at 4wheelparts.com accepts Canadian credit cards, I'll be ordering from him tomorrow!
