    I ALMOST got those, I just saved 300 bucks by going sport kings (no mud in AZ hardly) . According to the specs they sound pretty good. Heres a link to that : Tire Spec PDF its a PDF file. They only show up to a 33x12.50 , but the overall diameter is 33. Lots of tires are shorter than stated. If they were cheaper I would of gotten them. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    How much mounted and balanced with road hazzard? It was over 960 for my quote. So I went to a local mom and pop tire store ( the owner wheels too ) and got my Sport Kings for 540 out the door (40000 mile wty). So with the savings I bought a locker /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I liked the Firestones though, just too expensive considering. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I got 4 of these (33x12.50 destination MT) at a Firestone shop in houston for $613 that included tax, mounting, balancing, but no warranty. The guy said that he had to make the sell that day, and that he was up against some "hard numbers". I called around and other Firestone shops gave me a price around $800.

    I like how they look, but have not used them off road yet, only for my drive to work.

    I've seen them in action and they don't impress me much. They're around $145 from tirerack. There are a lot of tires out there that you'll be as happy if not happier with for the same price. Unless you're getting a good deal I'd stay away from them.
