    I was checking out their website blem list to hopefully find a smoking deal on some 39.5's. So they've got some listed for a 17" rim for $202 a piece. I'm thinking cool deal, right? So I email them about availability and shipping costs, $92 per tire they tell me:eek1: . Is this normal for this size tire? I can buy these tires locally for less at retail price and they're not blems. WTF????

    If you waited long enough to post this, they are probably gone. I have looked at them before, but they sell out extremely fast.

    well hop on ups.com and put in their zip code, the tire size and weight, and I bet it spits out $90ish a tire. Those tires aren't light by any sense of the imagination. Typically local dealers who get them delivered can do better pricing.

    I got 2 38.5 sx's from them the shipping was around $150 for the pair. On top of that they had to be shipped to a business address or there would be additional shipping charges. I had them delivered to a friend of a friend's business. The total cost of the tires and shipping came out to about $30 bucks a tire cheaper than I could purchase them new. I probably wouldn't bother with the hassle of ordering blems again.
