    I went to sears to order my 35x12.5x15 Wrangler AT/S's and they are discontinued and not in sears or goodyear warehouses in IN or OHIO.
    So I'm looking for sites that might have Wrangler AT/S's, I want to send some of the places emails seeing about warehouse items. I really want the AT/S's. If I have to I will order the 315/70r16's and buy new rims too. If I can find the 35x12.5x15's I want them! Bad thing is I need to order them/ find them before the first so they still qualify as a christmas gift /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yes I know there are hundreds of other tires out there, some might even be better, but I'm a goodyear guy and MTR's wont work for me on this silver truck/DD. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    SO, what tire sites do you look at for prices or new tires? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I like those tires also but when did they make the 35's? The 315/70/16 is only a 33" tire...

    They do work great in the snow and on road.. Never had them off road though....

    A Buddy of mine has the LT285/75r16 (a 33" tire) on his stock ext cab dodge ram and he done pretty well at the badlands. Only damage was a broken exhaust (it was already cracked), a scratch on one fender from barb wire at the head of a trial, and then running threw the creek banks he ripped off one of the supports for the nerf bars.

    I know several people with these tires and most will put a second set on, and myself I wont run any other tire on my silver blazer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I've had Four types of Goodyears (apt's, at's, gsa's, then these at/s's), General Xp's, and firestone R4S's on this blazer over the past 15 years and for cruising and playing you can't beat the AT/S for an all around tire (IMHO /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif). Snow, water (has dual channels), sand, gravel and DEEP peagravel it does great. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    32x11.5x15 Wrangler AT/S with 50K miles -3 years (going on 4 years now, I got this set for christmas in 99)

    Sears has them on the computer for $181.98, but they called the Ohio Goodyear warehouse and Indy Sears store neither had them in stock. Could be a short production run tire because of the size. But it could be 2 months or 6months before the next run and I can't get a straight answer from goodyear on its production status /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
