Don't undertstand...

Went to 2 goodyear dealers today and asked what I can get in a 285/65/18......Well you would of thought I asked for 56" Monster mudders from Bigfoot and I wanted them to mount them on my F350 18" rims...lolol...Both places said "WOW" are you sure you can fit those ..........Than I asked the 2nd place what size do you have the duratrac in?..He said you don't want those,they are strictly a mud tire much to agessive and way to noisey............Than he said well I can get you a 295/65/18 duratrac but its gonna cost ya..First he had to go to a book because he said he could not access those on the computer..Said they would run 360.00 a piece plus 25.00 each for mount and balance..WoW....I just don't understand when you go to a place that all they do is tires,have no idea.....I had to tell them about the duratrac,it was almost like they didn't want to sell me any tires.....I did not buy anything yet and was just really looking at my local options.But it doesn't look real promising...

Got this from the Goodyear website:
http://www.goodyeartires.com/tire/wrangler-duratrac/ - Click on "View Full Tire Details" - It shows the sizes they sell.

I understand the size thing, but not the 'duh' approach to selling tires. That just seems like bad customer service. Do they wanna sell tires or what?

I totally agree with everything you guys are saying.What got me was that both places the person helping me almost fell over when I asked for a 285/65/18...Honestly I would never buy anything from these places..As far as pricing everything in NJ is like triple everything else in the states.Its like their mothers brother-inlaws uncle has to make something off the deal too,,....
