Destination M/T?? Should i?

I was looking at the Firestone Destination M/T's and i like them a lot. They told me at Firestone it would be around 200 a tire but i found them at Roadway Tire for $147 a tire. My question is are the M/T's good? and if i get them online what do you think it would cost me for someone to put it on rims and install if i need them too. Please guys i needs some advice. Thanks.

I have no comment on the tire itself, but I have always bought my tires in-house; Free flat repair, free rotate and balance is a great deal. Especially for an off-roader There have been times I've needed re-balancing 4 or more times in a year. At 25-30 bucks a pop, it adds up fast, lol!
I believe the locals charge $7 per tire for mount and balance, you should be able to find similar pricing in your area.

I don't know how they will work on a jeep. i had them on a 04 superduty and didn't like them. The lugs were soft. I ripped chunks out of the lugs by spinning on hard dirt. They were also loud. I think they were almost as loud as my super swampers.
