    Where would you guys recomend I get them from?
    I've never bought tires via mail order before. Not sure if I want to!? I was thinking of finding one of thoes chain tire shops like America's or Big O and mabie I can get a roadhassard on them too!?
    I think between Sacramento and Fresno someone has to have a set of 35x12.50-15 SSRs !!
    YYYYYyeeeeeeeeeeFREAKINhaaaaaaaaaa!!

    I am going to second www.tyers1.com. If you have to mail order I have not been disapointed with them yet. If you can walk into a fourwheelparts warehouse then I would say buy from them.

    Just find the cheapest price in an ad in a magazine then go to 4WPW and they will match it. That's what I do and it works pretty well. You don't have to pay for shipping then.

    Congratulations, I can't wait to see them in OCT. (hint...hint) You are coming right? You have the rest of the season to go hunting.
    And I agree with taking in an ad to 4WPW. They were asking $545 for my 14bolt Detroit and I found it for $300. Glad to say that they RELUCTANTLY gave it to me for $300[​IMG]

    I had good luck with National Tire a few years back. There is a link from my website but I can't remember it off the top of my head.

    I don't know what your application has, but I could spend forever mentioning why I'd rather have the 35x14.50s. I have 35x12.50s now, and I think that you might like the 14.50s better.

    Hey ftn96...... you whana step out side and take care of this attitude problem you have?? Don't be spreading any negativity on my thread. I'm gonna have to drive out there and make you dizzy!!
