My BFG A/T's are 35"x12.5"x15" and I paid $900 for the old ones coming off and the new ones going on.

Have you ever heard of cooper mud claws? They run about 800 bucks a set around here and everyone I know that has them loves them. They wear very well for such an aggressive tire

I ran these on my truck pulling a skid steer everyday... not too loud on the highway but plenty aggressive in rough conditions... I think they have the deepest tread of any a/t tire too.. Im about too put a set on my new truck except ive got to put 6 on instead of 4

I'm about to the point of needing new tires on my F150. Probably gonna end up with the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 275/65-18

I'm in the heart of the snow belt, and supposedly these are great in the snow. Lighter than comparable TOYO's by quite a bit.

Cheapest I've found shipped with tax is $270 a tire.

About time for another set, 30-35k or so on them. Didn't last too good.

You requested to not receive a FREE service? :huh: :huh:


It's a free service that ain't free. I'd go with the "free" rotation but the store is not in my normal line of travel. Road hazard is a joke. It's like insurance, its great until you need it. Just knock off that free service cost that's added into the tire charge and I'll take care of it myself.


I'd venture to say that nearly every single shop that has free rotations with tire purchases do not add any money onto to purchase price. I know we don't. As a matter of fact, as long as you have a Bridgestone/Firestone product, we rotate them for free, regardless of where you purchased them. It's a company policy (direct from Bridgestone). Free means it costs you exactly the same amount whether you utilize it or not. Free rotates are to keep you coming back to the store. When the tires are off, the techs inspect front end parts, brakes, etc., and with any luck, you will need some work.


I understand the concept. I also understand overhead and labor (shop costs). They're not eating it. Just because you can't get your shop to discount for those items, doesn't make them free. It makes them figured in, whether you want it or not. I'm lucky I guess to have a good shop, or they're allowing me a frequent flyer discount.
This is the only shop I trust to deal with my wife, due to your last sentence.

I am sure I will get jumped on for saying this but I bought my last one's at the Ford dealership that does most of the work on my truck. BF Goodrich P265/70R17 all terrain on my F150 cost me right at 600.00 plus tax and mounting with the rebate, might be worth looking into.

Was the rebate dealer specific or through bf goodrich?

I went home and did some research, and found a lot of happy customers. I've never been super impressed with the BFG's and the Coopers were a bit to aggressive for the amount of time I realistically spend on on pavement I dont have more than a couple hundred miles on them but so far I am really impressed. They cleared mud pretty well yesterday while I was out scouting, and for as aggressive as the tread is, they ride quiet on the highway. Best part is they ended up being 150 or so a tire. As with any a/t you are going to sacrifice some when it comes to sloppy mud, but the tread groves are big enough that they did clear mud pretty well. I am anxious to see how they do in the snow this year. As of now, I would definitely recommend them again. The most important thing with any tire, especially an a/t is proper rotation and alignment.

Tman, you running 16 inch rims or 17 inch rims on your truck? Those tires might be the way to go on my soccer mom mini van. Since I like to run aggressive treads on it. :biggrin:

We sell quite a few of them. What's your point? My point is closed-shoulder highway tires have their place, as do ATs, as do MTs. It's pretty naive to think otherwise. There is a reason ag tires don't have straight tread. :fingerhead:

This is the most idiotic thing I've read in quite awhile. Most shops do, in fact, eat that labor time when they do free rotates. There isn't any extra built into the price of the tire, the sale price is the same.

That very well may be true. We do the same with loyal customers.
talltimber wrote:This is the only shop I trust to deal with my wife, due to your last sentence.

It's the nature of the business. Let me ask you this- If your wifes car/truck needed new tires, and you took it to the shop and they found that she needed upper and lower ball joints, and they DIDNT tell you, how mad would you be if you found out? What happens in 6 months when the shoulders are chewed off the tires you just spent $800 on? I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty- you're going to be pissed.

We have countless customers who trust us completely. Our mechanic has been working here for 30+ years. We have service advisors with 25+years under their belts. Contrary to popular belief, we're not in the business of screwing people. We are, however, in the business of making money where we can. I hate blathering idiots who think we shouldn't charge them more than what the parts cost us, or that we should install parts for free. :fingerhead:

Don't get me wrong. There are quite a few skeezy shops out there, but I'd be willing to bet that the honest ones extremely out number the crappy ones.

Think i will say about tires is do some research on tread life!!! I looked around the internet for several months before pulling the trigger on mine... Does no good to buy $1200 worth of tire if most peoples reviews of them are about 30k miles :no: Find something that has a good long tread life and pay the extra for them! :thumbsup:

Then you must not be on dhc very often. Lol Their price for the tire is the same. Their markup covers the shop costs does it not? Or do the employees volunteer their time for this free service.

It's the nature of the business. Let me ask you this- If your wifes car/truck needed new tires, and you took it to the shop and they found that she needed upper and lower ball joints, and they DIDNT tell you, how mad would you be if you found out?

I'm gonna be pissed either way. Good parts replaced to have the work, or missing something that should have been caught. Pissed.
There's a higher chance of the former with us because my wife is not an idiot and she is good about detecting something on her rig that's out of the ordinary. Slim chance the ball joints are worn that bad and she hasn't bitched about it. Lol

I buy the cheapest tires I can. Usually it's whatever Costco has on sale.

Of course they don't volunteer their time, but that's why we charge labor. I'm almost certain you have no idea how expensive it is to run a shop, let alone how much the average sale gross profit is. It isn't much. The bigger the tires, the less you make (generally).

This always makes me laugh. People will spend countless dollars on chidt they don't need, but when they actually NEED something, they are pissed about the price. When was the last time you told a McDonalds manager that the amount of money they make on you is too much? Did you know that furniture is typically sold at a 200+% profit margin?

Would your wife know when her break pads are on their last leg? Or when a CV shaft needs to be replaced? Or when her struts are bled out? Not knowing these doesn't make you an idiot. It just means you don't know, which is why we check for that kind of stuff.
