For those looking for new tires

Just wanted to let everyone know where I found a good, cheap tire source. It is a shop called Patriot Tire, 1-800-983-9023, they have all sizes of BFG tires. They even had my 255/85-R16's in stock. They offer free shipping to your door. I found them on Ebay, when I searched for "BF Goodrich Mud Terrain Tires," but they are available over the phone and at Saved me a couple hundred dollars easy.

There is a fine line between hobby and mental illness.

As another resource, 4 wheel parts has them for $163.99. They run deals all the time, like $100 gift cards when you buy 4, ect. They are the cheapest I have been able to find. The Patriot place sells them for $171, but free shipping/no tax which is way cool.

4-wheel parts stores are a great asset to us wheelers--they also match prices if they are not already lowest. If you have not checked them out, might be worth while.

I've been buying Pro-Comp X-Terrains for all my rovers from Four Wheel Parts. If you have a good friend or Pal who is a mechanic, tell them to open a shop account with FWP. You'll get them tires for a lot cheaper and you pick up the parts at the wherehouse (If you live in So Cal). I bet a lot of folks here didn't know FWP's main wherehouse is in Compton California. Yes the Easy E fo-shizzy gangbanging Compton. Thankfully its on the Southend. Whew!
