    Default Tires finally

    About to go pick up some FS Destination A/T's. They wanted a lot more money than I wanted to spend, so after 'calling around' for a bit I talked them in to a buy 3 get 1 deal. This leaves me without a spare for the moment, but I can deal with that later. the best deal? 4 33x10.50's mounted and balanced for 660 bucks. I could have got cheaper trail tires i'm sure, but these at least are quality.

    haha talk about a bust. on my way to pick them up they call and say when they got to the other store to grab my tires, they were told they were commited to someone else. I tried to find tires to put on when I got there anyways, and all they could find were BFG's but no longer could get my the buy 3 get 1 deal I requested, so I left empty handed.

    firestone on base. I tried the old "i want the same deal blah blah blah' but they don't deal BFG's, they get them from an outside source - you know the story from there. either way I wasn't getting suckered into spending more than my origional quote. In the end they told me I should go to discount tire. I just walked out.

    I might know someone in town that can get those for a decent price. Let me talk to him and see.

    well I went to 4wp's site and found better deals. I think i'm just going to go with some super swampers or procomps to match some steelies.

    I refuse to go to the Firestone on post. Never had anything good to say about them. I can go to the Firestone about 6 miles away, and have spectacular service, no problems. I think the ones on post just try to dick over Soldiers, because they are Soldiers .
