I was in a bind like this last fall when I needed to get new rubber for the winter. I was turned on to Retread Tires - Buy Retread Tires, Cheap Tires, and Retreads Online by a few guys that use them to plow with in the winter and off-road in the summer. I bought 285/65 - 18's for $129 a piece! Yes, they are retread tires, but for my purposes (plowing) I couldn't beat the price. They look identical to BFG A/T KO's and come with or without "Kedge Grip" a traction additive. I've had them on since October and these things are ridiculous!!!!! I haven't gotten stuck once, even with all the snow we've had here recently, and I've pulled out numerous vehicles from ditches/snowbanks without so much as a slip. Check them out, it might be what you're looking for. I'm fortunate enough to be in a position where I can afford whatever tire I so choose, but I simply don't see the value in some of these niche market tires. Here's the link to the specific tire 285-65R18-WARDEN-A-T-(D) - Retread Tires from TreadWright, Inc.

Well I'm sorry to say that just because I drive a Titan does not mean that I have 1200 dollars laying around for tires.
I was just pointing out how much tire prices have gone up in the past 5 years.
Then why in the heck are you checking on a size that is gonna cost more than the ones that came on your truck? If you don't have "$1200 laying around" as you put it, then you don't need to be buying expensive upgrades i would think. You gotta pay to play and it ain't a cheap game. I guess you got a lesson in the real world. I'll give you a hint though, next time you go to purchase a vehicle check to see what tires cost for the rim size on the vehicle before you buy it. I've never owned a vehicle that the tires lasted the whole life of the vehicle so you have to replace them. That way the sticker shock on tires won't be so bad. I know you can't take the truth but there it is so now chew my head off but the tires will still be high.

I recently purchase a set of 325/65/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers for $808 out the door. Cost me another $75 dollars to have them installed. I searched for months to find a reasonable price. Good luck on the tire hunting.

Now that is a good price on 18" tires. I'd say you got a very nice deal on some very nice tires. Thats the tires i'm gonna spring for next. Sure hope i can fall into a deal like that when i'm ready.

You don't know anything about me so please stop criticizing me. Are you a tire salesman or something?
