    285/75R16 Mastercraft Courser AXT - 285 75 16 Set of 4 tires - $700

    He'd have to come down in price a might. That is about what I paid for the same tires on my truck.
    It seems like mine were under $700 out the door, 6.75% Sales tax, mounted and balanced

    Dang!! I'm really sorry to hear that!! LOL

    I haven't put enough miles on them to tell yet. Not sure why I let myself be talked into them. I was wanting Firestone or something

    I've ran two sets of them without issue. A good friend ran through a set or two also, without issue. What made them crap?

    I thought it was a fair price. The cheapest I could find was $800 shipped to my door. I took $100 off and went with it, thinking it would be a good value for someone. If it's too much, then make an offer. I'm not trying to make a living selling tires, but I just don't own anything that uses this size anymore, so they're not doing me any good.

    I thought it was just some random thing you posted up from Craigslist. I didn't know they were yours.

    The tire sales man told me they were better now and sold me my set. I had a set previously that did not wear well.

    There is a tire distributor 10 miles from my house, so sometimes we get better prices. I was kind of surprised at the price I was given.

    Fine in snow and dry conditions but horrible on rainy pavement. And extremely loud from about 35- 50 mph.
    At least on the roads in Northern Illinois

    I never had mine in snow, so I can't speak to that, but lots of wet pavement. Normally, I was pulling a trailer, though, so maybe the extra weight helped. I can't say I had any bad experiences with them in the past.
