    I stopped in a new parts store today in town- saw a Mickey Thompson banner hanging, figured I'd give them a shot...should have known RIGHT off the bat they were not going to help... Ricer stuff GALORE!

    Anyway- I walk up to the counter- some young guy says "can I help you"..said yeah, I see you have a MT banner- can you get Baja Claw Radials? Uhhh yeah I think so...

    picks up the phone calls his supplier- and I will quote here...

    "I need a price on baja radials. Ummm I think so....Oh hang on....what size did you need?"

    35...... (he cuts me off)

    "35's..... oh really....no claw something..."

    I interject- BAJA CLAW RADIALS

    "yeah those.....no 35's.....oh wait a second......."

    "what size did you say?"

    35 12.5 15

    "yeah, she says 35 12.5 50"....

    I interject- <font color="red">35 12.5 15 </font color>

    "ooohhh I mean 15 not 50".......okay ....yup.....thanks...."

    so he proceeds to tell me $275.00 a piece.......

    I turn to him and say- which tires were those......and he can't remember......."the radials"......

    oh well thank you sir, have a very nice day.........

    Guess NTW has the sale...

    That's too funny. I can understand someone not familiar with big mud tires. I can understand not being familiar with every single tire a place sells. BUT where I can overlook ignorance, I will not overlook stupidity. Doesn't it suck to try to buy something from someone who is not as smart as the products they are selling. Reminds me of 4Wheel Parts.

    Nothing is wrong with 4WPW, but I have not had good luck with competent or knowledgeable salespeople there.
