BFG tire prices

Discussion in 'Truck & Equipment Repair' started by Avitare, Feb 29, 2008.

  1. My friend decided that the bald BFGs were going to get him in the ditch and
    I was shocked at what he paid for replacements

    He has a big ford with 285/75-16s
    He paid $200+ ea at Sam's Club before mounting.
    I checked my favorite tire place and they said $880 mounted -- holy crap !!

    are you guys paying that price for BFGs ??

    I just paid 801 even for 4 of them. And it was 65 bucks for a alignment. (i needed it) Sams was about 30 bucks more than where I got mine. I bought mine at a local tire shop.

    Paid $620. off of e-bay. Brand new set of 4...:cool:
    Had to drive an hour to pick them up, a freind of mine works for a tire shop... so free mounting, and then slip the alignment guy a $20. xysport
    That's the low buck conections deal but I priced them out locally $800 - $850
    It's the tire you are paying for they are good tires that will last you some time.
    If you don't need them right away e-bay is the way to go. Keep your eyes open...:nod:

    It's been about that price for a while. I usually find a seasonal swing from 680-825 in my area. Great tires in the snow.

    Wen I shopped for tires i took a close look at BFG , Goodyear and Pro comp , and for an AT the 3 have little difference matter of fact the Procomps are so quiet you have no idea you are riding on large AT Tires,

    And for more then 400 less in my case and a 50k warranty it was well worth the research

    Pro comps are a cheaper tire.... they have great traction, but thats about it. Besides this is a post about BFG's!

    I got 4 new 285 75 16 in october for $750 out the door. i was in there again the other day to get a valve fixed and they are up about $80 because of oil prices or something like that. This is not the time of year to buy new tires.

    Also... consider buying tires on ebay... so you pay $650 then like $20-30 a tire for mounting and balancing and it throughs that number out the window.

    Bfg's are ok but you spend 15$ in lead trying to balance these damn tires out..

    A BFG will balance out better than most. 255/75/17 $390 on ebay, shipped for $60 YEP! :dizzy: $450 for 4 tires delivered to my door. I mounted them myself and have yet to balance them. I have been up to 60, and no shake or shimmy yet. I will likely balance them at the end of the season when they come back off.

    I paid $800 out the door the other week for my new 285-75-16 BFG AT's. My old set had 95k miles on them and were almost completly bald. It still plowed well, ask Stroker79. Now with the new ones I don't even use 4x4 when plowing! These are the best tires I have ever owned and this is my 4th set.

    I pay 185.00 a tire here for BFG's and I will run no other tire on my trucks. They last me about 2 years and they are great in the mud and snow. I mount them myself and balance them to. Brother has a machine and if not he has connections to a few of them. :D

    Connections are good :drinkup: Can save a lot of money that way. I mount mine with a manual changer, and have a bubble balancer. It's a good enough setup for me. Forgot to add before: mine were 255/75/17 MT's Great traction!

    They must wear out pretty fast if you needed 5 sets! Haha!!:jester: I had a set of the Dakota AT's on one of my trucks. I might be putting them on my Dakota, ironic huh.

    Yea but are they E rated? If they are that is a nice tire.

    The "D" rated bfg's weight ratting is 3305# that's more than some "e" rated tires are..

    The "d's" are a little softer which will make them a better tire for ice and snow.

    I really like the BFg's but I'm starting to think there to expensive to be destroying them in a parking lot.

    Yea, but the E rated are not enough for sometimes.
