I got my MT Classic IIs for $89 each. That's not a terrible deal on BFG ATs, but you can find better, I paid $132 each for my Trxus MTs and MTs usually run more than ATs (although BFGs are a little more pricey).

Thanks, I'm trying to factor in all expenses including mounting, balancing, shipping, taxes etc.
Ordering from 2 different places will cost 2 times as much to ship and i still have to get them mounted and balanced etc...
And local sales tax is 8% which i don't pay if i order online.

I'm comparing TOTAL COST

Any links to discount places?

For what it's worth, www.tirepackage.com has some of the best prices I've seen.
I'd like to order from them, but I'm a little sketched by an internet-based company with no phone #.

I called them and talked to someone:

"We can also be reached at 714-667-2997"

On my way home from work, I stopped by my local tire store and they quoted me $767 for same 5 tires mounted on my stock rims plus $59.31 for tax.
Thats $826. So basically i'm paying 300 for 5 rims if I go with tirepackage.

Local store said they will beat any price, not sure they will do this DOT COM one though.
I guess I can check tomorrow.

Oh sure, that was probably up at the top of the page under Customer Service, right?

My point is that I'm an idiot sometimes and I didn't find a phone number even though it says Customer Service at the top of the page. No offense intended. I've read on JF and NAXJA of a few people getting ripped off by this company. Tires get ordered and never show up.

I tried to get a local place to match Tire Package on some Trxus, but they wouldn't.
For the local price I could have steelies in addition to the tires from Tire Package.
Good luck with your purchase.

oh ok

Yeah i read those negative posts too, but then i found a bunch who ordered and got them just fine. Kinda sketchy...

I found desertrat.com and will call them to see if they will price match

I called 4wheelparts.com and they can price match but have to charge me sales tax which is 80 bucks...

If they want your business bad enough they'll beat that price...or at least match it. Print off the page where it listed all the charges including shipping and bring it to them for legitamacy. When I was selling tires I would've honored it...

X2, very happy. They came mounted, balanced and shrink wrapped on a skid. Cut off the plastic and put 'em on.
