So it's about time to buy some new tires, and I have heard discount tires and America's tire price match from the internet. Low and behold, it doesn't seem they carry Bridgestone tires...Where is a mainstream chain that I can buy a set of Dueler A/T Revo's for a decent price? Preferably one that might pricematch off the internet?

Also, I was looking at www.tirerack.com and the dueler's that are $114 have a load rating of 'SL'. I'm guessing this is Standard Load, and is this enough for our Tacoma's? Or should I bump up to the $138 load rating of C. Thanks!

Coscto should be able to order them for you since they most likely keep them on inventory-

Till the end of the month- Costco has an instant $60 off a set of 4 tires (Michelin & Bridgestone)

They're prices are very competitive & include mount, balance, etc....

Just got a set of tires for my Wife's Xterra

That was one of my other options, i'll have to look into that further before the offer ends. Is $60 off pretty substantial in the tire world, or do better offers come along?

The SL's are a heavier load rating than the C. I just bought a set from Tirerack. Great tires so far.

What he said. I just bought some Bridgestone M/T's from Costco and used the $60 coupon. Ended up being about $60 cheaper than the local Firestone store even though they were offering buy 3 get 1 free.

So how come the SL's are cheaper than the C load rating. Because they're heavier??

There is a difference of 2/32" tread. ??? I'll guess it's just supply and demand working. BFG AT's in 265/70 are about $20. more than 265/75....go figure.

To that, all I'll say is I've run them now for about 1500 miles with no problems - well balanced, excellent wet and snow/ice traction, adequate offroad for me, and quiet.

I haven't had any issues with mine either. They work very well, definitely good snow/ice traction.

just went to costco and priced them out. $122.99/tire. Same price as tire rack, i'm impressed. And with $60 off of that...i'm sold!

One thing, however, is the warranty about replacing tires excluding offroad use. Soo, do trails count as offroading?

I will tell you that Overall Costco's Customer service & satisfaction guarantee are great!

Costco's road HAzard is the same as most other places' road hazard-
Very few places offer anything beyond the prorated warranty
(The only places I know of are 4wpw - No questions asked guarantee or Discount Tires upgraded Tire replacement certs)
Even Discount tire technically excludes offroad use-
Just hose off the tire before you bring it back & you should be fine.

Plus, my local Costco can balance and rotate tires for only $17 :) Now, if Costco only carried off-road gear, lift kits, etc....

I have had both, but currently am running the revo, but I didn't think the street capability of the BFG was that bad. But I will agree that the Revo is more of a street tire.
