    that price...


    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..

    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.

    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!

    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.
