am i seeing this correctly
your seeing it correctly, but im sure theres a mistake.. try to order them for
oops, upon further inspection, They are blems. so thats why they are so cheap, I wouldnt buy any of them, unless you were able to look at them IN PERSON..
well i know they are blems, but that is still cheaper then what i paid for my 36x13.5s a year ago lol
You're not hallucinating. I posted the link to the blem page a few days ago and it's been updated since. E-mail 'em on it and see what you can do.
they cant sell a defective tire so i wouildnt be worried. im sure they'll look funny but who cares?
Well I emailed em for 4 of 'em, see what happens.
They got 7 of em. Heck, BUY EM ALL! I`d be more interested in the 39.5x13.5x17 tires though.
I ordered 4 SSRs. I was told they were cosmetic blemishes, I'll post up when they arrive.
What size is 12-15LT??
i saw that too... im guessing 35/12r15 or 33/12r15
intercos measurement on that is 32.1" tall
i am in the tire bissness. the blems are yes cosmetic. but most of the time you really need to look hard to find it.
3 of my 44's are blems. You don't have to look hard to find the blemish on these. You can see where they've vulcanized a chunk of the lugs back in. One maybe two lugs per tire.
I wonder just how blemished they would be.... I am very tempted to see if I can get the 33" tsl's for Christmas... or the 34", because those would squeeze onto my stock wheels easily......... I know they are 16.5's, but still.. thats a streal!
Well the 49's were listed wrong, they're 37's not 49's. Got my email back today.
That is just it. Blems are mild deformations (on the outer layer of rubber) usually making a miss shapened tread block, or a blur in the name/letters on the side. It is highly illegal to knowingly sell defective tires. Any tire that gets tagged "defective" has it's dot # removed.
Aaarrgh!! Why no 15's?? I dont think I could stuff a 13.5" - 15" wide tire on my stock 16.5 wheels.
