I HAVE 4 PRO COMP MT'S FOR SALE WITH 16X10 EAGLE 589'S MOUNTED BALANCED WITH LOCKS AND HUBS FOR $500 PLUS FRT. TIRES HAVE APPROX. 600MILES ON THEM! THIS IS A GREAT DEAL. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ITERESTED. I CAN E-MAIL PICTURES FOR YOU.
Well, let's put it this way - Depending on where your located (in AZ we have Discount Tire) the Road Hazard will cover any damage that is not repairable to the tire. This means you get a NEW tire for the cost of another Road Hazard certificate (Let's say you have 35's, $160+ a tire, you only have to pay $20-25 for another Road Hazard Certificate and away you go - a savings of $140!!!) I live in AZ, and the sun heats the pavement enough to boil an egg (yes, it really does!) anyway, soft compounded tires last fer s**t out here. They are about 10k miles less than most other states, once you have 25k miles on a set, whoops - had an non-repairable flat, got myself a NEW tire for $25 and the other three will find the same fate within 100 miles, Hmmmmmmmmm - a FULL set of tires for $100. I know it's wrong, but hey - It works! Call me a cheat, but EVERY ONE of my friends who 4 Wheels does it! Check out the Warranty and how far it covers down to and if it is prorated. Sometimes you can even buy a set of 33's and then want to got a 35, well you just pay the difference and not the entire price.
Let me know!
I would still stick with the BFG's regardless of the warranty - I like them in the mud they work really well. This is my first set of Goodyears, so we shall see!!!
I've got 35X12.50X15 BFG AT/KO's. They are great. I've burried them entirely in this one hole that are the rest of my truck. Woulda gotten stuck if it weren't for them. I sunk 1/2 way up my doors as soon as I hit the hole, it was a TAD deeper than I thought! LOL.
Anyways, they don't clean themselves very good while your on the trail, but I've had NO problem with traction even when they're clogged with snot mud. It takes until about 20mph for them to clean out entirely (on paved surfaces).
I'm pleased with them, and don't regret the purchase.
BTW... the Road Hazard is AWESOME!!! Wait I mean it sucks... thats free work for me...
Naa really tho, I work for Sears Auto (mechanic). I've seen LOTS of tires get put on cars for free (minus the road hazard cost) its usually about $80 for a set of 35's, and about $60 for 33's (or 315's same diff)...
I highly recommend getting the road hazard warranty for one main reason. If we put your tires on and you leave the shop. If you hop a curb and blow the sidewall out, the SAME day you bought it. You're S.O.L.! Gotta cough up another $160 for a new tire, why waste that $130? Specially if you're gonna be trail 'wheelin it alot, all those rocks, sticks, branches, stumps, holes, etc...
But, its up to you.

Well, I JUST picked up MY NEW WHEELS & TIRES - MT/R's, not on the ride yet - but I paid $160 a tire for 35x12.50x15's - Not bad. It was the Centerlines that got me! ($175 a piece)
I have always had BFG's - first time with the Goodyear's - I'll let you know!
I have the Procomp AT 265 75 R16
And so far its the best AT in my OPINION out there ive had BFG's, Goodyear, and BIG O AT's in the past. Ive been through mud, dirt, sand, and rocks and i havnt had any problems with traction or pucturing my tires. i bought them from 4 wheel part for 500 bucks installed. I go off roading just about every other weekend in the desert (el mirage) and up in the mountains in big bear.
i put on 305/70R16 pro comp M/T's last week and just got to drive through a monsoon with them today. they are much better in the rain than the stockers were, stopping, accelerating, and cornering. a tornado touched down about 20 miles south of here, but i didnt get to see how they handled in that. haha
Hell, seem like everyone that posts anything here on this site has posted a thought or two here. Well here's my 2 cents. Road hazard warranties. I Never leave home without them!
I won't purchase tires with out it. Heck, If I were to TEAR out a side wall while doing the Rubicon, I get a free tire. Can't beat that. Jeep has 33" BFG mt's, my truck runs 32" BFG at's. Free rotations, balancing. (from Sears)
Road hazard is a lot like extended warranties for your truck. Do you gamble and not get it, or buy it and hope something breaks to get your money's worth?
When I bought my original BFG ATs way back when, I got the road hazard from Sears. Tore a sidewall on a trip and had the tire replaced, but it cost me the pro-rated difference based on tread depth and then a new road hazard for that tire. Total cost was only $30 less than a new tire. Road hazard for the other 3 tires was more than that so I lost about $10 in the deal.
My Big-O XT tires have a great road hazard for FREE. As long as the tread is legal and the tire can not be repaired, they'll replace it for free.
