I bought the Firestones at BEST ONE TIRE, I don't know if they are a nation wide chain? I like this dealer and they treated me very well. I can't remember what I paid but it was less than $200 per tire with road hazard.

Best thing in the world in my opinion is to update your 8 bolt 16 inch tires and wheels(7K axles and up) to 17.5 tires. They make a nice wheel that bolts right on the 8 bolt hub for single and dual wheel set ups. Then you can run a 215/75R17.5 16 ply radial that are reasonably priced and built to work. I updated my landoll trailer to them and wow what a difference!!! I have another trailer going to do the same to. My two cents worth.
