Ready to buy 35s - Where's the best price?

I want to purchase 5 Nitto Ridge Grapplers, 35x12.5x17 with 5 ProComp 7069 wheels, 17".

Discount tire has quoted me $2306 out the door.

I'd prefer to have them shipped directly to me and do the install myself.

Where's the best place to buy or how can I save more $$$


Thanks in advance!

I bought from discount tire direct since they don't have stores in PA. I got an awesome deal. Shipped free of charge and got here fast.

I just compared ridge grapplers in 35 at tirebuyer.com and DTD. Tire buyer was 282, free shipping to a Goodyear store 1.3 miles away who will install 5 for $85, and there was a $50 off discount included in my shopping cart. So $1475 all in for 5 mounted and balanced.

DTD is $342 same tire. $1710, plus sales tax (7%) = $1830 OTD

Just a thought. BFG KO2 in 315/70 17 going 199.99 free shipping plus 70 off at 4WS right now. That's a steal and I just picked up 5.

Is that 4 wheel parts? Or another store, if that price is right may need to go that way, but man I want Ridge Grapplers.

4wd.com has them for $159 a piece Chat deal only. Go to the site, chat with a rep, ask for the $159 price.
$795 shipped for 5 tires.

Yup, 4 wheel parts. Picked up rim, tires, tpms, balance and mounting and lug nuts for 1600 total.

I just went through this myself, but I decided on the 35x12.50r17 KO2's. I found about 3 places who came within $50 or less of each other. Tire Rack was the cheapest per tire followed very closely by 4wheel parts (on sale). Tire Rack was cheaper than 4WP for me because I have to pay tax at 4WP, but not with Tire Rack.
Costco was competitive and includes mounting, but I don't think they will actually put the tires/wheels on my Jeep because they are not OEM size.

I could have got the KO2's in the 315/70r17 cheaper, but I didn't want to compromise even slightly on the height of the tire.

The deal that I wound up getting was for $1647.83, but this was for the KO2's in the 35x12.50r17 size.

.
I'm no expert but is there any vehicle for which 35x12.5x17 is "OEM size?" If not, why would Costco even sell such tires if that's their policy?

Or do you mean they won't mount them on OEM wheels because the tire manufacturer specifies either 8 or 8.5 as minimum width for a 12.5"? A lot of places won't do that. (A wise policy for a business if you ask me.)

Just chatted them, a sales rep named Roy said that the $159 was last week's special and he couldn't match it. They're doing $182.49 at the moment.
They also have 17x9 steelies with 4.25" BS for $79.99 each.
5 wheels and tires mounted/balanced with lugs and I'm at $1,429.34 with free shipping. Just trying to reach someone on the phone to get TPMS with install quotes.
Still can't complain. Was going to go with "the combo" (15x8 Trackers and 33/12.5 Duratracs) through DTD but this beats that price and leaves room for steering upgrades in the future.

Good deal man. I checked tire rack but they weren't close so good for you. I was able to take advantage of no sales tax, 70 dollars off and all the other random discounts they were running. These are great prices and we both saved 700 dollars on what we expected to pay. I believe the difference between metric size and standard is in width (315/70 17=35x11.5 17) not height but I could be mistaken.

Thats awesome man! With all these discounts we are talking about these companies are making a killing on the usual prices of around 2300-3000 on "regular pricing." This is why I love forums!

I've decided I'm going with the Ridge Grapplers from Discount Tire in a 35x12.5x17 with 17x9 ProComp 7069 wheels. Price on the tires are $270 and the wheels are $125. I wish I could find this online with no sales tax and free shipping. I'm going to try tirebuyer just in case, maybe they will match or beat them. I want 5 of each. Also, decided I'm getting the LOD Destroyer rear bumper/carrier system for these. Screw it cant take the $$$ to the grave!

I don't know what it's like south of the border but up here in Canada, Costco is not too bad for tires.

Not to mention their 5 year road side warranty!

Ready to buy 35s - Where's the best price?

Discount Tire will match any legit online deal. At least the one I go to in Arizona will.

I was able to pick up a set of 4 bfg ko2 in 315/70/17 with pro comp 7032 wheels in 17x9 with m+b and shipped for $1213. not sure if the deal is still available on 4wd.com but might be worth taking a look. Compared to the 35's, the 315/70/17 are .1 inch smaller. Would take a bionic eye with laser measurement skills to notice the difference.

Two things here.

1. I really like the Ridge Grapplers, not sure it's worth $500 though.

2. It's a load C rating vs Load E. I'm wondering what the difference will be when I'm fully loaded up with Steel all around, under, and over with all of the overlanding stuff.

And I really like the look of the tires.

Here too! The price I currently have is Discount Tire beating Tire Buyer, they were great about it at the store.

As for the nominal differences in 315/70-17 and 35x12.5, here goes:

Width of the Metric LT is 315mm, which is 12.40", so there's a 0.1" difference in width, not height.

Height of the Metric LT is 315x2x 0.7/25.4 + 17" = 34.36, so that's a 0.64" delta in height.

35.00 x 12.5 x 17
34.36 x 12.4 x 17

I personally don't think it takes a bionic eye to see a .64" difference in diameter, if both are placed in the context of a wheel well. And with neither tire measuring their mounted height when delivered, and then shrinking more when mounted and inflated, and then shrinking again under the load of the Jeep, every little bit helps. I bet Costanza would have welcomed another .64" when he had experienced shrinkage.

You would be correct if a 35" tire actually measures out to..well 35". I havent taken measurements myself but per tiresize.com, the actual height of the 35" bfg ko2 is 34.5", so yes I still stick to needing a bionic eye to see the difference.

And you have reason to believe the metric tire for some reason measures out to its nominal size? Either one is as likely to be smaller than its nominal size as the other. Hence, you will find that no 315/70 actually measures 34.36. But I thought that was obvious?

You might be right, but without having both tires in front of me to measure, Im just going by tiresize.com. They might be incorrect, but they show the 315/70/17 as measuring 34.4 while the 35's measure at 34.5. So if the actual measurements are off, my assumption they would be off roughly the same.

Great point, and I think you are probably right that they were actually talking about mounting those size tires on a stock sized wheel.
