Procomp Tire SCAM Proof....
 
Ok this is complete PROOF of the crap Procomp throws at people. there "OMG so wonderful 3 for 1 deal" where if you buy 3 tires you get 1 free. which is complete crap. most of us acully realize they just hike up the price of the 3 to make up for it. and now here is photo proof of it so no more bickering that you all are acully getting a crazy good deal....here is an add from THERE "Off-road Adventures" mag from december when they werent runing the sale. now compare this to the "SALE" prices they are offering right now on www.4wheelparts.com the individual tire price is higher compared to the old add..and i will bet $ after the sale is over the price will drop agian. now you do save SOME like roughly 10% but you DO NOT get a "free" tire in the least...I am also including a screen shot of 4wheelparts web site for quick reference....

Nice...

Trigger01 03-17-2006 04:38 PM

Hummmmm. Thats not cool... O well, what can you do?

SoundPer4mance 03-17-2006 05:05 PM

well ive never argued on the topic, but im curious to see if prices go back down after the deal is up. the other ad is a few months old, and we have a year change and other things driving up the cost of everything. thats some good detective work but ill have to see the price after the deal is up before i buy it 100%

Red_Ak_Ranger 03-17-2006 05:05 PM

Lol Zach even if we fight you're still smart. I could tell this was a scam a LONG time ago. Anyone who thinks they're getting a deal 3 and a free 1 is bein pretty retarded because it's obvious they just price adjusted.

BASTARDS!

Les Schwaab hikes the prices of their TXRs(and other tires) becuase they are pinned for studs...$800 for 4 a month ago, $550-600 for 4 maybe 8 months ago.

4wdparts or what ever their name is had $149 with free mounting when I bought them on Feb 22nd. The "new price" is $184.99 each (buy 3 get one free). After you spend $40-$50 to get them mounted it will be the same price.



Zach is right.

I got mine from a high seller on ebay from ALB. new mexico....Mine were buy 3 get one free with free shipping, but my total was like 400....I dont care if its a scam or not, personally i would get pro comp all terrains over BFG's any day...Pro comps have alot more tread depth and do alot better in mud i think...The side walls arnt as thick, but ive liked mine since i got them...

Pro-comp tires blow ass. Good "proof" zach. I knew it was a scandalous from the first time I saw the ad.

buzzair 03-17-2006 09:41 PM

Its not procomp thats doing it, its 4wheelparts. Its their markup

Look at procomp mags directly and you'll find that their prices never change. Its 4wheelparts that is changing the prices.

034x4 03-17-2006 09:43 PM

4wheelparts owns pro-comp.

Rocky

contact Sawred and ask him for the pics from i beleave Warton back when he had his Procomp A/T's and ask him for the comparison pics of them in mud that John griggs took granted there not comparing BFG's but it will show you how crappy the procomps are in mud and its proof. now i am not saying the BFG's are or arent better just saying they still suck all around the procomps you couldnt pay me to own them for the tricks and games they play with the customers. plus being owned by a shady company like 4wheelparts doesnt help.

Zach...I'm not one to correct english...but this has been bothering me for a while.. its "said" not "sayed"

Its a forum you dont need 100% great spelling get over it. i cant stand people that correct other peoples spelling on a forum its like telling you to wipe your own ass its not needed...

and like Jey sayed 4wheelparts OWNS Procomp...welcome..also there was a laysuit out on procomp tires by the goverment i wonder what ever came of that...

graniteguy 03-17-2006 11:56 PM

My Dealer cost on 4 procomp 285/75/r16's All terrain is $1.27 HIGHER right now than it was on Feb 23 2006 when I bought mine.

It's markerting. You get all the uninformed people that think they got a killer deal and they jump all over it.

EdGe_wannabe 03-18-2006 01:39 AM

Nice find Zach, I've always thought that about the tires also. But I got my old 35's off of ebay for $611 shipped to my door...

I think you're being sarcastic? They always have that sale going. I can flip through all my 4WP magazines and find the same deal.

ok big shot... 4-31x12.5R15's regular price are 140.99x4=563.96 plus tax which is $30-50 on average and shipping which is i dunno maybe $50+

the "special" is 162.99x3=488.97

so 563.96-488.97=74.99in savings add in tax+shipping at a minimum is $80 so if you can add 74.99+80=$154.99

if you dont like to save $154.99 then i dont know what to say.BTW the page i posted up was www.tirepackage.com please read the thread the right way. i was just trying to save some guys some money. never said you got a free tire but you do save cash so i guess you will pay $8 for your 4th 31x12.5R15. so **** i think i made a great argument to that. thank you.
YOU DO SAVE MONEY!!!!!!!!!! :biglaugh:

RockysFord 03-18-2006 08:05 AM

I havent had 1 problem 4 wheeling with my pro comps....yea if you throw them in a huge mud hole they will suck because thier a/t's i didnt buy M/t's.....I actually got sucked in a big hole and almost got stuck, but thats what you get for buying a/t's....BFG's will do the same thing, but pro comps come with 2 times as much tread, we all have our own thoughts, but i will buy pro comps again for my next tires
