SOLD

They have about 9,000 on them. I'm looking for $575. I only paid $178 per but they're $216 now at Discount. Discount and Sears had huge price increases this week. The tires I bought Friday were $273 and are $311 today. The guy at Discount said they had an average of 15% price increase today.

I went to Discount and had them measure them. They were 13, 13, 13, 14, and 14/32s. The two 14/32 tires are so because they've spent time as spares.

Original tread is 15/32s. I'm pretty impressed at how these wear. None of the sidewalls have any damage and none have had to be repaired.

Give me a call at 303.875.3154.

Hey Paul,

Really interested in the tires. I am not sure if I missed it, or if it isn't there. What's the price? Also can you approximatey the size in inches (i.e. 33" diamter by 11" wide or whatever...)?
Thanks,
Abe

Cooper tires are built in Japan. Because of the earthquake/Tsunami you won't see much for a long time.

Cooper's are built primarily in the US with the largest facilities in Findlay, OH. They have 50+ facilities and less than a dozen of them are outside the US. They have invested recently pretty heavily in Mexico. They claim that their offshore production is intended for Asian markets. These Coopers are built in Canada. I actually got an email chain with the customer service. Plus, based on this info, I researched the company for investment purposes. BTW, they were $3/share in 03/09 and are $26 now. I still thought it was worth 200 shares. They are selling out of their high margin tires on both offroad and sports lines.
