Hi guys,

I saw at least 1 person on this board running this tire. When I called an authorized Dean retailer today, they said that they never stocked this particular size... I realize that this tire is rare and that's why I wanted to go to an authorized dealer as opposed to some shady shop. What do I do now...?

BFG makes that size, but they are around $180. Durango seemed to be reasonably priced at $130 or something along those lines. Are there any reliable authorized places on line that sell them? Also, is there a chance that i won't be able to find a shop to install the tire of this odd size?

Thanks!

Ah, I was looking for you! They look awesome on your car and that's why I started shopping around for those tires. Vulcantire.com seemed to be a bit shady for me, that's why I was asking around.

Consider this thread closed!

P.S.: Shipping is what killed me... $208 to CA 94403.

IIRC my Maxxis Bighorns were $130ea. and they are actually a namebrand/good tire. I would recomend them over the Durangos.

Dean is a brand of Cooper tires, they have held up well so far despite my camber being off wearing the outer edge a little quick.



edit....vulcantire.com lists the durangos at $116/tire, not $130.

Yeah, the tires are cheap... Shipping is not. They will end up costing me $780 for 5 tires. $200+ for shipping...

I will look more. I really really love their looks on willgr1's car :)

At $156/tire, you are getting darn close to the cost for a set of BFG's ($161 at tirerack.com). I'm sure you could find somewhere local to give you a price close to that.

vman, check out the maxxis bighorn or buckshot's in 255/85. there's good internet deals to be had and maybe available at a local dealer.
Stevet47 and myself both have the bighorn's and i can't speak for Steve but I'm sure he'd agree it's a great MT for the price.

You speak for me just fine.
I agree, this is my favorite tire I've had first hand experience with, which includes BFG MTs, BFG ATs, Interco Truxus MTs, Maxxis Buckshots, and Maxxis Bighorns.

Thanks for the info guys, it sounds like I may have better luck with Maxxis Bighorns in my area.
