    Is anyone else having a hard time getting IROKs or any other Interco tire these days? I ordered a few weeks ago, and my supplier says he's getting a runaround from Interco as to when they will ever be shipped. I am having a hard time being patient!

    My supplier thinks that because he orders like 10-15 sets at a time, he gets shafted in comparison with the larger places. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    TSL 38.5's. They just don't make them that good. Not like I hit the highway very often though.

    Why would your distributor take money for something they do not have!

    Mudzer, have you heard anything from Interco about them coming out with a 46" bogger.I saw something on another site about it.Rumors says it will be sometime late summer.It supposed to compete against the 46" claws. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    So in Interco time that late summer estimate will mean late next decade...

    I have given up on the IROK's and I'm going with 42" TSL's... As soon as I'm done saving up for my tow rig/trailer that is...

    I have a deal worked out with the distributor, a set of tires in exchange for website work /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif. So I haven't paid out any cash. I just ordered the tires that I want. I'd have reconsidered if I knew it would take so long, but at least in the meantime I'm on 35's that I borrowed from my husband /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    That would make sense. Kinda hard to deliver to a little guy and then tell the guy that spends six figures with you every year in tires alone that you're out of IROKs and can't fill his order.

    I think I've decided to wait on the 42" IROKs though. 6 months from now the market will probably be much better, and I might even have money by then. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
