35" cheaper than a 33" tire?!?!

A 35/12.5/15 tire is cheaper than a 33/12.5/15 tire? Ive seen this in a few places now. Click Me. Why is this?

Its odd for sure because that tire is a fairly new design. But if a certain product has a high sales volume it becomes cheaper to produce even if its takes a little more material to produce it. Supply and demand.

35s aren't exactly cheaper in the long run. More lift, more bumpstop, more gear, and more breakage.

I really want to, and just add a 1" spacer lift to fix sagging springs and a 1" body lift. I'm just worried about running 35's on stock axles. I don't do anything too hardcore but I'm still worried.

Well I'll tell ya..... a d35 can hold up to a chevy 350 and 31's, a chevy 350 and 38's but not a chevy 350 and 35's. I ran the 350 on 31's with the d35 for about 5 years then upgraded to 38's for about 2 years. Then I changed to 35's and about 2 or 3 weeks later.......kapow.....gonner.

if there is an over stock on 35's then they are probably looking to get rid of them to lessen overhead.

I'm running a stock D35. I don't do anything too extreme, mostly the stuff I do is like what you see in the Tiny, CCain, and Unlimited adventure threads. I go out there after they post up pics and say how cool it is.
