I have been looking for tires for a while since I knew mine were on the way out. My alignment is off with too much negative camber cause from the quicklifts. I was parked on an incline today and had my wheels turned into the curb and saw something on the tread that didn't look right. I looked closer and saw a patch of steel cords. So, I checked Costco and they had a set of 265/70/16 Bridgestone Revo 2's in stock but out the door cost was almost $850. I saw Merchants has the buy 2 get 2 tire sale going on so I called them. They could get a set of 245/75/16 to replace the same size Cooper discoverer A/T3's I had on there that went bad. I checked if they have any 265/75/16's and they had a set of Cooper Discoverer RTX. Final price was $583 and it was for all 4 tires, road hazard warranty, flat repair, mount and balance, lifetime rotation, and 1 year alignment. Glad I got the new tires, but kinda sucks I was forced into it a few weeks sooner than I had planned on getting them.

Here's the chunk taken out where you can see the steel cords, and see how bad my alignment is. Cooper Discoverer A/T3 P245/75R16 111T
