New BFG TA KO 235/85R16 Where is BEST to Buy ?

needing 4 and need to best price possible. Failing that I might get some Grabbers AT2.

mine are almost gone and not happy going to Alaska and just hoping they last......especially in the rain. They are not clearing enough water.

4wd.com. You have to sign up on their Jeep forum to get the member discount, plus they have an online coupon.

I usually just google it and find out. amazon, discounttiredirect.com etc.

Look for any rebates.

So how does it work. I don't have an address here so I really cannot use delivery only. I need fitting.
discounttiredirect was a OK price but not fitted but did have free shipping. Will local tyre places allow delivery to them and then fit them for a price? We are new New Orleans in a few days but we are going north so we could really go anywhere as long as its almost on route.

In the UK they are much better pricing if you get 4.....here not so much. You usually get one free in the UK.

last time I checked didn't discounttiredirect offer to ship directly to a trusted local mechanic to fit and balance? Unless they took away all of those options, they should be there.

A family friend also owns tiremonkey.com if you want to check them out as well.

Find an actual Discount Tire store if you can. They always match prices.

You might try Sears Auto. They have locations nationwide and should be willing to price match what you are able to get online, plus shipping.

And if you don't have an actual store nearby, discounttiredirect will match prices too, if you call them. They matched amazon's price for me, and since I told them I had amazon prime, they kept the free shipping on the order too.

I find that the small local shops can usually match the online prices if you ask. I use a place on the Eastern Shore that has excellent prices and service. They have this ridiculously yellow building right on US50 that looks like a carnival ride gone wrong, but they do great work.

My local Ford dealership beat the best price I could find online. Might try there.

Thanks guys. I'll try the places you mentioned. We have a long road ahead so we can go into all the places as we move along and as we see them. If we get a good price I'll get them there and then.

Thanks Again.

I'll be the lone wolf here and derail the thread.........Are you sure you want to go with that tire? Have you looked into other tires? The KO's are an old technology, and there are lots better tires out there. Just sayin.....

If they are 7 ply or more. (with a 3 sidewall) I'll look at anything thats a good AT and in the correct size as long as its cheaper. The Grabbers are less ply but they have a good rep.

We've had on puncture in the entrire trip and I want to keep it that way.....

offline till this evening now. can't sit in McD all day. LOL.

Thank you Jason... so true.

Though it is funny that you're saying that the K/O is old tech while riding on XZLs

235 just seems a little narrow to me. I run a 285 on my truck. Defenders have 265 and 255.

We run 235/85s on our puma and it's a great fit. That's the size new Defenders come standard with.

I don't know your route, but if you need assistance setting up tire delivery/mounting around the Chicago area(I'm halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee) I would be happy to help. You can use my address or I can aid in purchasing if you need. I realize you don't know me from Adam but I'm not a (complete)jerk.
