Guess I have to wait until the 315/75R16's come down in price.
something doesnt look right with that. I have seen price increases but thats a little much. 30x9.50x15 is $199.95 Thats just way outa wack. hopefully thats just a typo on the web page.
Yeah......$1000 ea does seem a wee bit steep!!!!
Funny, everyone jumped on that 4WPW ProComp strap deal.....I wonder if anyone will jump all over THIS one???
Maybe that's how they cover the "free" shipping. Looks like they have been watching eBay to see how its done. Next they will sell you the tire for $2.00 but the shipping and "handling" will be $450.00
Actually, that's what these are going for right now. Mainly due to that being the tire that the military is sending to Iraq & Afghanistan. Had a friend locally want to get some and the were gonna require a bunch down, as well as info on what theye were gonna be used for. Apparently they have to be "investigade" so it's not for terrorists or something. Anyway, guess G/Y can make their $$ from the gov't and the rest of us will have to buy Interco's
Tirerack.com isn't bad. Most expensive tire on there is the 40" MT/R and thats only $345 a tire, thats the cheapest I've ever seen that tire.
Tirerack usually has the best prices on MT/Rs:
Look, 37's are just $191
Goodyear has decided not to make a 315-75-16 MTR anymore. All of the other sizes are available bt only a dozen (total in the country) are still available.
no, this is where 4wpw takes advantage of a bunch of suckers in order to cover the loss of 50,000 snatch straps sold below cost.
The 37's are all made in the same carcass mold. The 315's are in a different one and are not affected by the military. The military uses very few MTR's but made goodyear stop 37" MTR production to supply the war. I spoke dirctly with goodyear's plant manager a year ago when the back order was going on. I spoke to him a month ago when trying to hunt down some 315's and that is when I was informed they were discontinued. This is no secret the told us this might happen last year but were hoping sales would increase. The whole 16" line of MTR's doesn't well well but they are going to keep the most popular ones. I am oping for a 42-1450-17 but I doubt that will happen.
Those MSRP prices are totally bull. I know what the cost is on goodyears and that MSRP $999 tag on the 40's is about 4 times what they pay for them. I hate 4wpw, love my $20 strap though.
Well I guess I am one of the lucky ones then. I have a set of 315/75/16's, but I only paid $204 per tire.........hmmm, maybe I could sell them and make all my money back and upgrade to 38 tsl's??
Yeah the price of the goodyears are harsh up here as well.
I have am going to order the Toyo Open Country M/T's 315's instead.
Taxes (14%), balanced etc $1284 (CND) Approx 275 per tire.....though if I were in the states I'd get $125 US off the purchase right from toyo.
Here are get a $#%*ing ball cap
I'm gonna call Toyo Canada tomorrow and ask them to stick 125 dollar rebate in with my freaking cap.
Funny, I got my 35 x 12.5 x 15's for $178 per from Wally World.
I just picked up a set of 5 315/75r-16's locally and they were about $230 a piece.
