If you really want to keep the tires, go back and tell Discount Tire of your issues. I'm assuming that's where you bought them because the Rocky Mountains are their specific tire name for the Falkens.
I run bead locks because my rig weighs close to 7000 pounds and I drive in the sand/snow quite often. I am not really sure that your comment is even pertinent to this conversation. What tires or wheels I choose to run is my choice for what I do with my vehicle. I don't choose wheel and tire combinations off of how they look, I choose for performance. I would think that anyone should be able to run what they want and not have issues like this. I am sure a championship winning KOH Race Jeep choose a non-aggressive tire to win on because its a garbage tire and an aggressive mud tire is sooo much better...
I purchased the tires from Discount Tire Direct and if there was a Discount Tire within a reasonable driving distance I would have already visited them.
