Desert rat.com???

Any one used them? They have a good deal on tire rim package that I was looking at but have never heard any reviews if they are legit or have good reputation and service

They are legit. They are based out of Tucson, AZ and have two stores there. They are part of Jack Furriers Tires. I've been to one of their stores on 22nd St. I've never found any good deals there, as there prices tend to be rather high. They've been running an ad in the Arizona Daily Star for the last few weeks in the Sports section. I got a great deal with a coupon code from JC Whitney on tires.

Well I found a set of 4 35x12.5r15 km2s on four new street lock rims for 1300 shipped. I've got 16 rims on it right now (PO did that) and it was gonna be 15-1800 to get km2s in my size locally

I got my last set of wheels and tires from them because they had the best price. No issues and they were balanced perfectly. I'd order from them again.

I know by the time I add the spare ill be looking at 1600-1700 shipped, but that's with 5 new wheels and tires, plus I will be able to sell my set of 36x13.5r16s iroks on rims for around 500 to bring the overall cost down, plus in the future itll be cheaper to replace 15" tires rather then the 16s

Back when I had my first Jeep, I used them almost exclusively. Prices were good, they were always the first to have the cool new toys, etc. It's been over 10 years but I remember them (and JC Whitney) being exceptional when I dealt with them previously.

They have a pretty good reputation here in Tucson, although yes, sometimes their prices are a little high.
