Cooper SST's are nice. MTZ's are a bit pricey.

I still dig these.

I just priced the toyo open country m/t's and the cooper stt's I'm only looking for 265/75-16 and they were 1200 for the toyo and 950 for the cooper. Mastercraft corser mt's are basically the same tire as the cooper stt since cooper owns mastercraft, I didn't get a price on them though.

I went ahead with the BFG's for $700. It's a good deal.

the only ones I found out here that are that price are the store brand ones, supposedly made by bfg but i'm not positive on that.

I might end up going with the cooper stt they are $950 otd with siping

$700 for 4 plus $81 shipping.

I think Belle charged me $39 a tire to mount and balance my 5 Trxus tires before.

Kan Rock in Fenton charged me $8/tire to dismount my rims and tires and remount my new tires. You're telling me I saved 31 per tire?

Belle Tire here only charges something like $15 a tire for mount/balance. Discount is the same.

You know, with a lift you might have some minor alignment issues that your average shop won't fix. My MT/Rs 35/12.5R15s have pretty much gone to shit over 14k But these lasted 50% till 30,000? I think a lot will depend on how you drive it and how well, who does an alignment. You'll have to work with some places to get it right.

Not sure about that...just looked on Discount Tires website and its only $12.99 for mount balance in your area. Did your $39 a tire include the tire warranty? Because that would make sense.

Where did you order them from Tirerack?
