The search is finally on

Time to get new shoes for the XK. However my search has not gone well. Apparently there is a shortage of BFG ATs So I have looked at some Michelins, General Grabbers, and Cooper Discovery STs. which led me to believe everyone is running around in the 245/75 tires I was wanting because no one has any.

Anyone tried the Michelin LTX A/T2 or Cooper Discovery STs?

Heart was set on BFGs but at $900 mounted for 4 tires I am thinking maybe I will shop around.

900! WOW! Have you considered buying off of ebay and using Microsoft (BING) cash back? If you are inclined to wait a bit it usually fluxuates between 10-15% off. Around Thanksgiving they run 30% off cash back for a day or two. I used it last year and saved about $300. Check this thread for more info:

The issue here is shipping, the idiots down south think that we can only get things 2nd day air and only offer that option so shipping costs $400 to $700 dollars for a set, therefore I gotta buy local.

Have you contacted Discount Tire? I am sure if you explain your situation they will help you out and make sure you get the right price on shipping.

Do you have a Goodyear supplier in your neck of the woods AK? If so, you should check out the Wrandler Dura Tracs. I am running the 265/70/17's with my 2" lift and they only took very minor fitting adjustments. You would also need around a 1 - 1 1/2" wheel spacer, if you don;t already have them on.

If you do not want to talk on the phone with discount tire then you could contact the rep that is on this forum. I am sure that they will help you out just as well as a phone call.

I have no issues talking on the phone, just started drooling over the Goodyear Duratrac loving how the sipes are not just horizontal. *sigh* this and camp commander would be the only reason to move to the lower 48...

Gonna go talk to some friends who ship up here regularly and see if I can get in on one of their consolidation shipments. That might save me and give me more tire options. I just got to get creative.

Take a look at TireRack.com too, and read the user reviews and ratings of the A/T tires. You'll find that Firestone Destination A/Ts are the highest rated tire overall and they're cheaper than BFG A/T KOs. I'm running 245/75 R17s and I love 'em. Still haven't gotten around to posting pics...will soon.
