Re: Another V79 rear tire
I was on the AMT website looking at tires for the LT. I saw Pirelli has a Night Dragon 160-70-17 V79 rear tire. But at $189.00 each. I don't see that being one many of us go for. But was surprised.
Well, current price on a quick check at Dennis Kirk for the BT020 is $160 ++ and the Met 888 is $194 so in the big picture, it is only $30 more or $5 less than two of our current options so for me, that makes it an option to add to the current limited selection which is good even if it is at the higher end in cost. I found it at Dennis Kirk and it is listed as a Bias tire so good for all LT years. Several other sites I checked didn't have the proper size listed. I have two BT20's to wear out before I need another. Who is going to be the first to give one a try and let us know how it performs? I know price varies by seller so don't get on here and say it is cheaper somewhere else. That isn't the point of this post and may I say, nice find James.
