    where at online do you guys suggest buying tires? I was looking at 4 wheel parts but im kinda iffy on them. Do you think id be best just going to the local tire shop and having them order some in? im looking at 38 or 39.5's. Thanks for the advice.

    I bought some Swampers at a local tire shop that "could get them" but weren't actually a dealer for Swampers. They were out of round and rode rough, but the shop said they could do nothing for me. Be sure to check the return policy and satisfaction guaruntee when you buy them. When my bro bought his Iroks, he bought them from a local 4x4 shop who guarunteed satisfaction or his money back.

    For online, I would suggest http://www.tyres1.com/ or http://www.ntwonline.com/ I have had good dealings with both companies.

    There's some tires in the Thrifty Nickel 39.5 Iroks if you're interested...

    go to billingsthriftynickel.com pull down "Accessories/Parts/Tires" and it's about halfway down

    "4 NEW Irok Super Swamper tires, 0 miles, size 39.5x13.5x15, $900;"

    And don't bother calling on the $600 76 GMC 1 ton - I already called and it's a 2wd :(
