Non-Rebate T-31s

I guess I didn't plan correctly for this riding season. Had a half used set of T30s on the Gen 1 at the start of the season.

Picked up two sets of T30s with the rebates in the spring. Thought those would get me through 2019. Not.

Just ordered a set of non-rebate ($236) T31s. Hope I still have these as a half used set for next spring

Note to self: Ride more, buy more, then worry less

I just got a set of T31 GTs for my FJR from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC for $228, $252 with shipping. They have the regular T31s too. Very fast service.

I love RMATVMC. The T31’s weren’t on the summer rebate. Just the T30 evo’s. I got 2 sets of S22/T30 EVO last month.

Congrats OP for riding more than expected! Can’t beat that

Went with Rocky Mountain this time. Chaparral had the T30s sets on Ebay for $20 less.

I think the price I indicated was before tax.

I hit 250K on 7/24/19. I hit 254K yesterday. Between tires and gas it gets expensive.

I'll bet there are still Gen 1s with the original BT-020 tires on them

do you not have an account with them?

shipping should have been free, as its free three day shipping on all orders over $75... generally it only takes two days to come in though

No. I've ordered from them before and don't think I paid shipping. I just assumed their policy on tires had changed. They didn't charge sales tax. I'll look into it next time.

Yeah you could have gotten about $5 in store cash and free shipping, worth making an account. they are great to deal with. I pretty much only order from them.

The sales tax depends on the state you live in. Sadly I have to pay in because they are shipping to PA

Looks like I screwed up. I just tried another order but stopped before placing it. Still didn't create an account or sign in. What I did see was a link that said "This order qualifies for free shipping." which I clicked on. The order then said the shipping would be free. So either you have to ask for free shipping to get it, or maybe I clicked on "Standard" as the shipping method instead of leaving it blank like I did this time. Creating an account only gets you the store cash. Thanks again for pointing this out. I usually don't make those mistakes.
