Thats only a good price when you are stuck in Alaska and buying tires. I paid $189/tire for my BFGs. I went to tire rack and they were cheaper till we added shipping then the price was over $100 more than the 4BFGs mounted and balanced.
Is that with installation? Some tire places add in all kinds of charges for balancing, vents, and old tire disposal. My local STS Tires charges around $30 per tire on top of the cost of the tires.

I have the Silent Armors and am very happy with them. I think I got them from tirerack.com.
I bought mine locally from a Wingfoot service center...I paid $135 each for 245/70/17's. They also gave me $50 each for my 5 take offs because they only had 18000 miles on them. I thought that was a great deal!
I love the tires, they are quiet and have great traction on any type of terrain.

However, I then discovered I had no brake lights! Replaced the...

But anyway, this is to share the quick updates about the little things you did to your XK on any given day. If you don't want to start a new thread... Let us know here!
When I got my commander I thought I wanted to put the RC lift on with spacers. Found 4 1 1/2 inch spacers for 50 bucks on Facebook. But as time goes by I just want to make sure my commander is safest for my kids and is the most reliable it can be. Maybe later. Plus I need to get reasonable gas...
