I bought my last set at Sam's. (31x10.50x15 Dunlop Mud Rovers)

It's the tyhird set of MudRovers I've used and the last set I got at least 60,000 miles on- unheard of for mud tires.

Sam's beat any price I could find, including www.tirerack.com, which is where I bought the previous set. They were around $450 installed.

I used Oakwood Tire prior to that, but their prices weren't so good compared to others in the area.

Another in Gainesville is 123 Wholesale Tires. I've boguht several sets there.

I'd advise you to check www.tirerack.com though. when I was pricing my Dunlops, they could beat any local price by $100 or more, and mounting only costs about $20-50.

On the other hand, Sam's offers lifetime rotation. They told me to come back every time I change my oil.

The Walmart Sams Club. You can check the prices online, and even order your tires and have them shipped to Sams at no cost.

That's what made the difference between Sams and Tirerack. Tirerack wanted ~$90 to ship FED EX to me. Sams ships from their distributor to the local store without upcharges.

Discount tire. I have bought several sets there. Good deals and pretty workmanlike.

A friend of mine owns a Firestone dealership in Augusta, Peach Orchard Firestone. One of his employees husband has a take off set there for sale I was going to put on my 250 but they were too big for a 2wd. You might want to google his number and give them a call, might be worth the ride.
