Feds are hard to find, no matter where you call. I had good luck with directbuytire.com, I think I paid about $65/each for my 245's. Your best bet is going to be calling around to every place that has them. It took me 3 weeks to find a set in stock last time I purchased them.

The problem, is that they all list them "in stock" on their website, but they don't actually have them when you call.

If you want to pay more I believe Les Schwab has them but not at the onlinetires.com price.

That's not bad of a price. Especially if it also includes mount and balance.

Picking these up tomorrow , but probably won't have em mounted until Monday. I can't wait, dammit, enough A/S nonsense. I'm curious to see if these suck, or are a good deal for the price.

I really, really hope you are right. Because if they suck, I can't chuck em. I bought them from the 'shady guys', btw. I can pick them up, so I'm not worried. I'll have my local guy install them.

Their no BFGoodrich KDW tires. But for the price they aren't that bad.

I was pleasently surprised. dry/wet traction better than the s.drives I had before. though my one gripe is....they have less of a tolerance for low temps.

Mmm, meaty. They sure look fresh, like they are pretty new stock. Deep ass rim protector, as well, probably the biggest I've ever seen.
