Hi Boys/Girls

I have started looking around at tyre prices....a little bit shocked I must admit. I am running 295x75 R16 BFG AT's they want to charge me around the $380 mark for a new one..x4....ouch. However I want to go up to a 315 x 75 which I still can on my mag but they are $400 each. Does this sound about right? I also got quoted on a tyred called maxes I think it was for something like $270 each, but I have never heard of them and I don't know if I should just stick to a brand name that everyone know??

Thanks

You would be talkin about Maxxis... They are around..

I got a price on 33x12.5x15 MTRs of $270. some are gettin $320 on 35's.
$380 for a 295x75? Are you in the middle of nowhere?

It is a shocker isnt it.

Go to Offroad shop and get an indication on prices- unfortunately they dont seem to have prices on the BF ATs you are chasing, but there are similar models. I rocked up to a tyre shop in my town and quoted these prices to the local tyre mob (obviously the site price excludes fitting/balancing and you need to add the postage). The tyre mob I got mine thru came down to almost their cost price to win the business. They didnt beat the price on offroadshop, but I got fitting, balancing and a local warranty agent.
With the dirt cheap figures you can get off the net, take them into a large chain that guarantees to beat any other competitiors price and you're on a winner.

why are you shocked ? the bigger the tyre the bigger the hole in your walet . What are you going to fit 315's to in a bfg . either you have a big lift or a large angle grinder

I have a 99 GU currently running 295 x 75. On a 2 inch lift. The tyre guy measured it all and said the 315's will fit without getting a bigger lift.....just have to move the mud guard back a bit......

you can fit 36inch tires on a GU with a 2-3inch lift. Steve Roly had Q78 Swampers on his GU and used it quite a fair bit... got photos here.

I actually think the marked size is Q78/15 = 36x11.5
but measured is more like 36.5x12.7 according to google search. not bad for a 3inch lift. :)~

We actually measured it on full turn as well and it will just make it though. I thought the 315's are equivalent to 35's? But enough on this I have loads of info now, thanks for that link as well Banjodog. Anyone going to go find some mud this weekend after the lovely rain?
