I've heard alot of good about the BFG's. I got a set of Goodyear Wrangler Authority AT's put on my Jeep last winter, and they have yet to show any sign of wear at all. I'm really impressed with how agressive they are for AT's, and still wear great.

Will be getting new tires in few weeks. Used to have em on my Ford explorer 4x4. Loved them. I want it on my truck. So, been looking around what are the best deal out there. Tires discounter has an offer I think sounds good to me.

Do they take your old tires when they deliver the new ones? That tire disposals fee on a purchase has me lost. I take my used tires down to the used tire shop and they buy them from me. Few dollars in the pocket is always better than a few dollars out of the pocket.

I'm gonna get ahold of my buddy who has his own shop. See how much he'll charge me for it. He normally the one to put new tires on my truck before Open Country AT. I just pay him cash. I never asked about tire disposals fee

Amazon delivered them straight to the tire shop. Then you take the vehicle in for the work. The flat fee installation cost you pay on Amazon covers disposal.

Pretty brilliant way for Amazon to nickle and dime while looking like they're saving the environment lol. I'd bet money those babies get resold to either a customer if they're in decent condition and the shop does used tires or sold to a used tire buyer who turns around and sells them by the graded truckload to used tire shops. They will buy the worst of the worst and recycle them. Had a shop try to ding me $8 per tire once in nelsonville, took them a half mile down the road and sold them for $8.

That's 95% of time shops these days. They all want to charge a "disposal fee"

What's your problem, little guy?!
Great tire for doing burnouts. I know a lot of people have had great luck with them, I’m not one of those people. I have had so much bad luck that I wouldn’t buy a truck if it had these on it.

One guy talking trash and 5 praising them. My complaint is invalid. Just stating that I hate them worse than Dustin hates the buckeyes. O-H!

I know a lot of people swear by them. I had one set of BFGs many years ago and swore I would never buy another set. With all the great reviews I see my set was probably just a bad batch but I never got over it.
