Default Where did you buy your tires?

At a tire shop, i know that , But for those of us in the metro Detroit area where did you buy your offroad tires/mud tires? Ill looking for a tire shop that has low prices and a good selection of tires, like BFG Mud terrians, or Super swamper Trxus's.

I personnally like discount tire, free service for the tires if you get the warrenty, plus replacements when you purchase the warrenty

I buy my tires from other people. There's always a good, stalled project out there with new rubber on it. :tonka:

i actually bought my BFG AT's at sams club and just took em the new rims buy the tires and they mount and balance em for free.....also they have a 59 minute garantee on their mounting and balancing..so you are out the door in under a hour usually which is nice....also got my warranty thu them....

however for all my other service i use the bell tire on rochester across from target (between auburn and hamlin). .because they let me go out in the bay if there are any issues so i can see whats wrong..nothing bothers me more than a shop that wont show you the issue because you aint allowed in the "garage" always seems to me like they is hiding something.....or trying to pull the wool over my eyes....

I got my MT/R's from BDR. My BFG's came from my old man. Skoots let me know what tire you want and size. I think my dad can get a wholesale price for them for ya. All depends on the tire make and size though.

I have never bought a new set of tires for anything I've ever owned.

Usually my tires don't get very low in tread either before I find another used set that are in better shape to put on.
