Yep, that's the going rate for 3/4 ton diesel truck tires.
I have road tires from Sam's, for around $600 per tire.
If you go lighter rating, the front tires will not last long.
Firestone place in Lake Charles talked me into going with
6 ply cause they were out of 10 ply. Front tires came
apart on my around 35K miles. One on the way to Venice,
the other on the way home. Don't go cheap, don't go
lower rating.

Check craigslist in surrounding areas. Everytime I need tires I can find a slightly used set for about half of new cost

LMAO!! Yea, I forgot about that. That was before I changed an ignition coil. They tend to go out after you pass 200,000 miles!

Ahh, the dog......I think "Willie" had a problem with cats. He was doing really well untill my wifes aunt brought us a kitten to help keep the rats out of my storage shed. As soon as he saw that cat I noticed that he started gettin a little nervous. After about a day or two I guess he descided it was him or that kitten and he left.
