    Looking for new tires for a '77 K5.
    Preferably a dealer that can mount and balance.

    Currently running BFGoodrich 33 X 12.5 X 15's.

    35's won't fit.

    Any suggestions?

    Discount tire is the place I shop for most tires. There prices are usually very competative, they price match, & there warranties are the best out there. The only time I wouldn't look at Discount for tires is for large aggressive offroad tires. They won't warranty Swampers or similar tires. They do offer the warranties on BFG, MTR's, & tires like that.

    If you don't know about Discounts warranties it is fix for free or free replacement of the tire if it is not fixable. You pay $25-30 (each tire) for the certificate warranty but it is worth it when tires cost $100-150+ each. If you put a nail threw a sidewall or whatever they give you a new tire for free & you only pay for a new certificate for that tire. So $25-30 & you have a brand new tires.

    Wow, another Falcon CK5er.:doah: Where are you at in Falcon?

    If your not looking for swampers and such, I have had pretty good luck with Tire King right by the airfield. If its a goodyear product, I think they usually have it. AJ gave me a great price on tires for my wifes van. He hooked me up with dismounting my old tires on the :k5: and putting on my TSLs. When every other place I checked wanted an arm and a leg to do it. Then I went to Kuwait for a couple of months, and when I got back I needed to put in some airsoft beads to help with balancing (amazing improvement:D ). He broke the beads and resealed them without any questions, and it didnt cost a thing.:D :saweet:

    I saw the Tire King ads, out my Meadowlake airfiend, I'll stop by there.

    I live off Falcon Highway, out east.

    I remember something a couple of years back, about a CK5 member that ran a Big-O, I believe it was in Monument.

    I have Big-O Pathmax 31's on my "other truck", a Bronco .......:eek1:

    I tried Interco TrxUS STS 33 inch tires purchased from 4Wheel Parts, and NO ONE could get them balanced. They were GREAT off-road, but the no matter who tried, the truck shuddered on the street.
    A friend has them on his farm truck now, and that truck NEVER sees roads, so it was a perfect fit.

    The So-Far Prices Follow-Up:
    All were 33 X 12.5 X 15.

    Tire King quoted me $162 apiece for BFG MT's.
    (AJ was not there, his day off, I'll go back and speak with him next week).

    Big-O quoted me $199 apiece for Bigfoot KT's. OUCH.

    4 Wheel Parts quoted me $125 apiece for BFG AT's.
    Plus a $75 Gift Card if I bought 4 tires.
    Of course they are also pushing the $75 tire warranty package.
    (I wonder IF you can use the gift card for that?????)

    Discount Tire quoted me $140 apiece for BFG AT's.

    Still looking .......:confused:

    Thanks again for the lead...............

    I spoke with AJ yesterday, great guy.
    He was going to check on the various prices of tires and get back to me.
    He said that he could get practically anything, including Goodyear, Michelin, BFG, Toyo, Bridgestone, Firestone, Dunlop, Nitto, Hankook, Yokohama, Peerless, Kumho, ProComp, you name it.

    He did say that in his experience, Toyo Open Country tires lasted longer than any other AT tire, when exposed primarily to DD street duties.
