    I second blue ribbon ... good people

    truckersb2b.com gold tire program is an awesome resource for small fleets. Can get top tier tires for the price of tier 2 or 3 tires, and can go to any dealer for the tires. Basically national account pricing.

    Went to Redburn 8 Falkens $1920 out the door. Don’t know how good they are, but no one came close to this price.
    In and out in an hour.

    I have Falkens on my car and love them. I have never used them before so don't know how long they will last. And their truck tires could be a completely different experience. I hope they hold up well for you. I'm going to need a set of drive tires soon and haven't decided yet what to put on.

    I have mixed feelings about Falkens. Got great wear for a year and a half on BI 830's, then all the sudden they cupped out and went crazy ... over the winter (I can see extreme Arizona heat effing up tires ... but not cold .. no tire chain use), I pulled em off and a buddy put them on his dump truck.

    Went thru 2 sets of 130 steers before I learnt my lesson on using them. Got 70k or better out of them, but would always get crazy river wear or break belts.

    My thought now ... is they are not cheap enough to compete with paying a bit more thru b2b for Michelins. BI 830's needed flipped every 75k or so due to heel to toe wear (mountains, HP/Torque, Smooth bore tank) so far I have about 80k on Michelin X line energy D and all 8 are wearing great. No weirdness. Got some serious use out of a set of Energy Z steers ... probably close to 200k. The drives are way too soft to last much past 300k

    These are trailer tires I hope the do ok. For what I paid for them I won’t complain if they don’t last as long as Michelins.
