Updates huh? How's this for an update. Onlinetires.com is the best priced tire site I have ever found. I just ordered KM2s for $149 a tire. 35x12.50r15. So 5 tires plus shipping was only $1200!!!

Yea I was surprised, Tire Rack has em for 198 a tire. My Dad came across this site and I seen the prices I couldn't turn it down. Cannot wait. These are the wheels I am gettin since I have discovered 15'' tires a cheaper than 16'' tires. They are the wheels that came on the Jeep when I got it. Why not have different wheels

OK KM2s were on backorder so I decided on MT/Rs and they were on backorder so I now have 5 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws comin my way at a price of 175 a tire.

You do realize the shipping prices are outrageous on that site, right? $1200 for 5 tires comes out to $240 a tire. You can do MUCH better than that from any local tire chain.

Where the hell did you get $1200 for 5 tires? I never even said anything like that. I did however say that about TireRack but all I did was mention how expensive they were compared to where I got my tires at onlinetires.com....


Here is the email he sent me.

Jason,

I'll go ahead and process your order for those Baja Claws.
I'll be sending you an invoice for the difference of $179.35 so you can pay by PayPal.
Here's a brief quote:

Mickey Thompson 35/12.50/15 Baja Claw Rad $185.00 $925.00
FedEx Ground $456.34 $456.34

Total $1,381.34

Jesse




Only $100 more including shipping. I am tellin you guys this place is the cheapest site ever. Would Quadratec or 4WD ship tires for $100? If not then I ain't out anything, if they ship for free well damn I am out $100.

Dude the shipping prices are crazy on that site. I would go with Discount tire as they have free shipping! Check out this pic's to see the price difference.

Well it ain't too bad cause the MT's I bought, I ended up payin $35-40 more than I would have if I went with Quadratec or 4WD. I see what you guys were gettin at though. For now on I will go with Discount or Tire Rack. No biggie thanks for lookin out! Where might I be able to find Rubicon Express Long Arm Upgrade the cheapest? That is next on the list just lookin for the cheapest place for it.

It looks like you already realized it but you just overpaid by a boat load. Assuming you went with the Baja Claws, you just paid $276/tire after shipping. Casanova4x4 would have got you that tire with free shipping.....I had my 5 KM2's at my door for $985. Hell, ANYONE could have got you those tires much cheaper. That site makes the tires look cheap and more than makes up the difference with shipping charges.
