    Seems a little steep to me, but BFG's are never cheap.

    No that is not a good deal! That comes out to $213 a tire! I think 285's are equivalent to a 31"? I got my 35" MTRS for cheaper than that mounted and balanced. You need to shop around some more:)

    4wheel parts sells them for 195 each. most tire stores figure 20$ per tire for mount and balance. i'd say 850 out the door is a fair price.

    Mine are 315/75/16


    I got them priced matched on base from Wal-Mart. Then again I didn't have to pay taxes.....That is still a lot for a 31" tire!

    Awesome link Stallion. I book marked that one because I need to get six 265/75/16 tires for my 85 K30 duallie, and they have some real cheap tires in that size for only $70 each. I say, "any new tires are better than old worn out tires". Have you, or anybody else, have good experiance with buying tires from these people http://www.nebraskatire.com/index.html.

    i didnt see any 285/75/16's in there. they only had three sizes, and they are probly blemsfor those prices.


    this tire is 32.8 dia, 11.2"width,8.4 sidewall=like a 33x11.50

    a 305/70/16 is 32.8, 12.0, 8.4 =more like a 33x12.50



    i personally think 200 a pop for 33's is too much, but this is the going rate. if you want bfg's in this size for 16's thats what your gonna pay. i say 850 total is a fair price. 4wp would probly want close too 1000 w/ taxes,disposal, shop rags etc. they like to tack on any little charge they can think of.

    so to answer your question, no your not getting ripped off

    ya i did, still only saw 3 bfg MT's. however they have other brands in a 285/75/16. you can get some buckshot mudders for 135. plus 15$ per tire for shipping costs. they'll probly add a bunch for them to get to canada then if you have a problem with them , say one is a blem, what do you do? ship them back? i would only buy tires local personally.
