Hey question for folks (maybe 2 questions)...

- Call local tire shop they say they will not move old (10K no issues) tires to new wheels. Is this normal or are they an outlier?

- For anyone in NorCal/San Jose any tire shop you would recommend in Southbay. I was using Wheel Works, previously actually very good for my uses, not as good today.

Also...
** Thanks to Justin at PacWheels for help with Method MR703 in +25 matte black **

America's Tire was good to me in Dublin. I'm sure most of the others around San Jose should be similar just busy. Their parent, Discount Tire, I almost use exclusively outside of California and have good service always. New tires, wheel only swaps and summer to winter tire swaps consistently been done well.

Capture.JPG I have a set(4) of these to be delivered tomorrow from Tire Rack. They'll replace the OEM Bead-Lock Forged along with a new set of the OEM (Load C) BFG KO2s. I'll likely keep the Bead-Lock wheels with the 60k mile KO2s on them. These weigh 24.5lbs, so they're still much lighter than Bead-Locks.

Note the OEM tires on OEM Bead-Locks weigh 100lbs each!

I’ve got the same ones, not yet mounted and also will be shod with fresh KO2’s.

@06z I second this. We ordered one set from Titan for a customer and they're a nightmare to deal with from a vendors stand point. They prefer to sell direct I think.

LOL Yeah, the owner "James "Jimmy" Yang" corresponds directly with the customers. I did have some issues with my order that resulted in a late delivery, lost order, etc., so I can see where a vendor would rather not even deal with them for such a small or non-existent profit...

edit: the wheels themselves are great, but you can only get them in -1mm offset, so they will poke a good bit. If you really off-road your truck they will likely cause body contact....
