well this was 33s for my chevy 1/2 ton not my 44s. 33s seems a bit outrageous to call oversized

What a country we live in. The income taxes I already pay out the *** should pay to fix the ******* bride I drive over every gdamn morning. Instead they go to useless scumbags on welfare. For an extra $10 in taxes I'm taking my sledgehammer and getting my money's worth of infrastructure wear and tear

Sorry for the angry response, just came from a thread regarding the EPA lol. I better go to bed before I pop a blood vessel.

Oh I do my business in store with them and I promise you that you won't pay that in the store. All you have to say is I ain't paying that and they will take it right off to sell them. They will sell them under their cost just to sell them lol. They told me they will also beat any eBay pice I found as well. Def props to discount tire. Ill be a life long customer as long as they are in business

Federal excise tax is charged by the government on any tire with a load capacity of over 3500 lbs. At least that's what I've always been told
