Thats a OK deal, I just went through a deal with 15x10s and 35s for 75 bucks more, not mounted and balanced but you can find them cheaper I think.

looks liek a good deal to me. only thing im not sure if you want them doing the balancing, what if the balancing isnt right, then you will have to pay for it locally.

saves 100 bucks compared to summit racing... even though summit has MT classics for 23 bucks cheaper( each.....regularly) the tires are a little bit more thew summit.....

Good price on the tires. I got mine through a friend, and still ended up paying about $15 more a tire.

Here's my advice...from plenty of balancing/tire experience.



Buy JUST the rims online...from summit (they are cheapest)

But some equal or dynabeads (because stick on weights were a PITA for me...and they fall off...also account for human error, not many tire shops around me knew HOW to balance a "larger" tire)

Buy the tires locally...if anyone didn't know this, tires ARE negotiable on the price. I didn't know that until my gf's dad told me (he works for John Henry...owner of the redsocks, he does commodities). Get em down about 20 bucks a tire...just have them mount em...

Thats how I would do it, if I had to do it over again.

Seing as I would have paid the same price, and I would have had a hell of a lot less aggrivation

40 for balancing at Tire Kingdom
63 " " at Coral Springs Automotive
44 " " at Sears
70 for dynabeads
50 for new rim (bent) from summit

total of 267 more than I origionally paid.




Origional price...

200 for rims from Summit
500 for tires from 4wp

So I could have got MT Classic II's and bought tires at the tire shop (tire rack) for 600 (100 more than I paid) and get the "piece of mind" that I can reject a tire that rides bad or is out of round, etc.



So If I would have done it the way I reccomend, I woulda saved 100 bux even with the beads and all...and MT classic II's (15x10's too)

Looks like a pretty decent deal to me, but I would wait and get the wheels/tires balanced locally.

From my experience that set up usually ends up costing ~1200, so that seems like a good deal to me.

personally I wouldnt run 33x12.5 on a 10" wide rim.. maybe 35's
thats just my opinion.

I would say go for tires from a local place they will take care of you right if you go somewhere good.

Thanks all, I've got the general gist of what to look for and how much to pay.
