Nissan's use of Continental Contitrac tires has spiked the price of these tires.
I purchased two (rear tires shot after 16,000 and several dozen burnouts:rofl:) less than six months ago for $83 a piece. They are better than the Goodyears that came on my truck, but not the best.

As of now the cheapest I have seen them(and they're out of stock) is $98.

TireRack.com is selling them for $133 a piece!

Talk about supply and demand!

Anybody else use these tires?

What size were you looking at? Unfortunatly, the prices at TR are based on what they buy them for. If Conti raises the purchase price of a tire on that end, it goes up to yours. Everything tire wise is sold at a certain percentage above what its bought at, no more, no less. And I hear ya on the backorder statuses, drives me nuts!

I was referring to stock 265-70/18. I am sure it's a supply and demand issue, or it could be that Continental, since getting the Nissan contract, thinks it's tires are worth more.

If this is the case (in Red) then why is it other online companies are selling them cheaper $98 vs. $133? Old stock? Less profit?

Not exactly. Its really based on buying power, and sometimes (in certain instances) there is not enough on a single size purchased in order for us to get it at a price that some others can. same works in reverse. I have no doubt that the tires offered other places are brand new, but its also easy to offer low prices on something that you don't have in stock also. i can tell you by looking into the tire size, that we actually pay more for each tire ourselves than they are selling them for. They mucts be gretting a great deal. Once again, this is not always the case, and more than likely, we buy tires by the whole truckloads and that drives down the price
