    I'm looking for the cheapest price on 33" 10.50 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM Tires. OR any other 33" 10.50 tire that is good in the snow or mud.
    Thanks
    Adam

    Hey Adam,

    I bought my tires through Paul at National Tire & Wheel. They had great prices on Interco's 15.5x39.5x17 TSL's. I bought 5 tires, 5 rims, mount, balance, lugs, locking lugs, and shipped to TX from WV for $2500.00. Two tires were damaged by FedEX. I refused them as Paul instructed and had two new tires good to go, within 5 days. That's customer service!

    I'm sure you might be able to save a $1 here or a $1 there, but when customer service like this happens, I'll buy my sneakers only one place: National Tire & Wheel!

    Happy New Year! [​IMG]

    For BFG tires the best place to buy is Costco.

    If you want to stay in Maine you could give Ron's 4x4 and off road a call. They are in Winthrop Me at 115 carlton pond road. 207-395-2431 Buddy of mine had good luck with them.

    I used a mom and pop place by me the first actual new set I ever got . Nowadays I use Discount Tire exclusively .

    Its all about the road hazzard warranty with me anymore . That and the free rotations and stuff you get with it .

    TirePackagedotcom is easy to shop. 5 of their 38x13x16 TSL's with rock crawler rims mounted and balanced and their "no questions asked lifetime wanrranty" (don't know if its good) runs $1530 shipped to anywhere in the contiguous lower 48.

    Bought my 33x10.5R15's BFG AT's from Discount. $125+$25 for road hazard.

    Put a nail through the sidewall about a year later and replaced the tire no charge. I believe they tack another $25 on for another warranty though. Warranty paid for itself (all 4 tires!) first use, can't beat that.

    Gotta be careful. Putting things through the sidewall for many places will not be covered under "normal" warranty.

    I bought my BFGs through a local guy. I got them at his cost:D Course I get off work at 430-5 most days then I go down there till 530 and help clean up or help one of the mechanic buddys. Then we all start drinkin there about 531 anyway.

    pirate & craigslist, never bought a new set of tires for my truck, just too expensive, you can get a almost new set from someone else for 2/3rds the price, even less if you're lookin for tires smaller than 35's...

    Walmart is where I bought my Krawler spare from. Cheaper than 4 wheel parts and no shipping even though it was delivered to the store by UPS. No extra charge for ordering or shipping. They called me when it was in.

    I buy off of craigslist or through 4x4 for sale forums. Ck5 and Pirate always have great deals.

    I bought a set of H2 takeoffs for my dodge for $600. Practically brand new 35" BFG's with rims.

    I bought my last 2 sets off off road tires either by trading or buying used. It just makes more sense. Especially since I haven't wore down a set of tires for my rock crawler before I upgraded to a bigger size.
