  • Tires, Tires, Tires.

    Saturday I called Americas tire and asked about some 33's mtr's to replace my two blown tires. $185 each plus mounting, balance, and additional for the warranty. Damn


    Well, today is Sunday. I went to CostCo to see what they had in the way of tires. I was going to leave cause they had nothing bigger than a 31 inch tire. Lynda asks about their tires and says we are looking for 33's. The guy say well I got some 35's that someone ordered and never picked up. You can have em for $150 bucks each, mounted, balanced, valve stems, amd roadhazard all included in the price. Well, what kind of tires are they, I was thinking, so I asked. "What kind of tires are they"

    The guy said. BFGoodrich Mud Terrains - 3 ply side wall, you know the new design to compete with the MTR. I said I'll take em.

    So now my jeep doesn't go uphill very well, but it sure looks pretty

    Sweet deal!!! I hope I can come up with something like that when it's time for me to buy!

    BTW, I not only noticed a difference on the street, but off road it affected me too. Now my gearing isn't quite low engough!!

          I've heard a few people rant about the Dunlop Mud Rovers from Sams Club. 33" is $100 a pop. and they have warranty and road hazard. A guy aled what if i bring one back with a fist sized hole in the sidewall, and Sams Club said they would replace them. The yhave tires up to 35"s too. Lucky score for those 35"s, I just cant see paying 150+ for tires.
          Screw you guys, I'm goin' to pismo.

            $150, that's all. That's awesome.

            I'm thinking about spending $172 a tire. Super Swamper TSL's in the Q78 size. I guess it's all about the performance that you, and that will dictate how much you spend. Then again, I might decide to be frugal, and only spend $113 each for Swamper LTB's in the 34 x 10.5 Who knows.

            Congrats Kirk on the steal of the week.

              He unloaded the Dunlop's because they were CRAP. He had a flat just about every run.

                    They are called Dun Lops for a reason.

                    Last Chance Canyon- 3 flats,
                    Doran - one flat
                    Rubicon - two flats
                    around my house - 5 flats.

                    I got two new ones for sale- they have less than 1000 miles on them.

                      Get some new rims and put them on your trailer. That is what I run on mine.

                            better yet, make an obstacle out of the flat tires and it can be "cetrov's flats"

                              spread them out in the front yard and use them as planters that would be a great use for those dunlops!
                              good move, and a great price on those tires kirk
