    Getting New Tires

    Hey guys just like the title says I'm getting new tires, went down to the local tire shop and they recommend proxes all season 17s. he quoted a price for a set at 867 dollars does this sound fair or is it a bit high. I'm open to suggestions if u guy don't think these are any good

    Also try tires.com...I work for the company and know we have the lowest. If not send me a msg and I'll make sure we work something out. If you were willing to spend that much the BFG's KDW's are awesome tires and the are around the price range but much much better!!

    +1, I have bought my last four sets off them. Hard to beat their prices and they carry just about every brand. Best part is the reviews. You can read what people are really saying about them!!

    Good luck.

    My brother owns his own shop and sells tires, mostly Coopers, which I like, but he can't compete even at his cost!!

    Guys, all I can say is give us a try. The company I work for is huge and independently owned. One guys owns all 700+ stores nation wide. Its growing slowly on the east side, but states on the west coast like Cali and TX they are huge!!
