Awesome deal dude!
nice deal on them!! we have them on a duramax and they are beastly!!
do it man. but its funny u are getting a snow tire when u live in az
correction, snow rated tires, not snow tires and AZ gets snow in the mountains
and when you come up this way in the winter youll be ready
dont talk tires to me young man. this is a snow tire not "snow rated" if it has the mountain snow flake it is by gov. law a snow tire. now not all snow tires are the same. and to prove this look at the tread on this tire it is clearly snow tire tread with all those sipes. now is this also a great offroad tire yes. goodyear made the tread rubber alittle harder than a normal snow tire to make it last and more durable. yes they were rated for snow yet goodyear themselves said and back when these came out i was working in tires still and the salesman came in with these brand new tires to stock our selves. that it was a new snow/all terrain tire. its the best of both worlds. i just wont buy it lol
The original definition of M+S tires is based on the geometry of the tread design. The M+S designation was first used to differentiate the knobby, bias ply tires intended for use on muddy and/or snow-covered roads from the straight rib tires used on early cars or trucks. Tires with tread designs that meet the definition may be branded with the letters "M" and "S" in several different ways (e.g., M&S, M+S, M/S, MS, etc.) at the discretion of the tire manufacturer.
When early radial ply tires were also found to deliver more snow traction than the straight rib, bias ply tires, the tire companies introduced all-season tires. Supported by advertising, all-season tires have presented an unspoken promise that they, throughout their life, can provide traction for all seasons...through spring's rain, summer's heat, fall's cooling and winter's snow. While this combined offering has made all-season tires popular, many drivers have learned that a geometric definition doesn't guarantee winter snow and ice traction.
A mountain/snowflake symbol branded on the tire's sidewall identifies tires that met the required performance in snow testing. The mountain/snowflake symbol is expected to be fully implemented on new tires by now, however there still may be a few winter/snow tires in the marketplace that meet the requirements but were produced in molds manufactured before the symbol was developed. NOTE: A Highway Safety Code regulation passed September 17, 2008 for Quebec, Canada, stipulates that:
"Between 15 December to 15 March, the owner of a taxi or passenger vehicle registered in Quebec may not put the vehicle into operation unless it is equipped with tires specifically designed for winter driving, in compliance with the standards prescribed by government regulation. The prohibition also applies to any person renting out passenger vehicles not equipped with that type of tires."
While dedicated winter/snow tires bearing the mountain/snowflake symbol are available in sizes for most passenger cars and minivans, the wide range of sizes and load ranges for tires used on crossover vehicles, sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks and full size vans encouraged Quebec to temporarily expand its definition of acceptable tires to implement this law.
quit bein a fag and let the man enjoy his good deal.
