    I know a guy based out of Cold Lake. I can ask him if he's got any leads. Also Dollar Tire in Edmonton deals in alot of military surplus tires, you can call them.

    No problem. I looking for a set of military michelins for my crew cab anyways. He said he'll have a poke around, shouldn't be too hard to locate some in Sask. You're in Yorkton? He's got a source in Wainwright but hasn't talked to him in a long time, so doesn't know what he's got.

    Yeah I am in the town of Yorkton. I kinda looked around but never came up with much online. I am trying to talk to some of my friends that have stuff to do with the military.

    Yorkton is about 5 hours North of the North Dakota border, half a hour or so west of the manitoba border. Pretty well located in the middle of nowhere. (http://maps.google.com Just type Yorkton, SK in there and probally will be a better picture then my vivid description :D .)

    But thanks for the offer, I will try phone that Edmonton Tire place in the next few days.

    Got ahold of the Dollar Tire, they want 275 CD for the tires, with about 50% tread left. How does that deal sound, kinda high to me?

    Demno44 did you talk to the guy in Cold lake yet?
