Just because we don't know much about them.

Noticed the Bubba Burger logo on BB4's shoulder.
If you have not tried them before...definitely give them a chance. Been eating them for years.
They come frozen. You cook them on the grill while still frozen...very quick and easy.
Just throw on a hot grill...about 5 minutes each side and bam...super tasty, juicy, delicious.

Be interested to hear about some of the other "minor" sponsors you guys know we should try.

Not much use over here, but I always try to support those companies that put support into the sport, especially the lower level guys. It's how we as spectators can encourage the sport to grow.

That was the first place I checked a few weeks ago when I was shopping around for new tires for my wife’s car. They wanted $132 and Walmart had the same exact tire for $87. I’d say there name is a bit misleading lol

Except free flat repairs, they are replacing the valve stem or upgrading the sensor, and most importantly could have been with free no cost replacement tire warranty. And I’d never let wal mart touch a thing. There is a reason discount tire is the biggest and most trusted tire company.... and they price match...

I bought my first car tires from “French Brothers Tires” because they had a “Sandwich Board” at the local MX races.
This was 1980.
I try and support anyone that supports our sport. Previously I’ve drawn the line at cigarettes (just foolish), and currently draw the line at “Energy Drinks” (almost as bad as lung darts). I’d buy branded gear, gladly pay to see inside the Red Bull air museum, but drink something full of sugar or artificial sweetener? Not for me. (Anymore)

Conversely, there are several newspapers I loathe. Obviously I never buy them, but if I find one, I skim through, and attempt to boycott their advertisers.....

It was just buying the tires lol. I can’t see how there is such a huge difference in price. But anyways back the original content of the thread

Support those that support the sport.

Red Bull,always gets my money, because they go about their business the right way, and without them , we wouldnt have Monster either.


Support the local folk that support your local sport... your dealers and any who throws a buck in the pot.

Garbage though. Tried 2 sets.

Discount also sells Falken under their own brand name(Rocky Mountain), and if you look at them, the tread only goes 50% down, then it's a solid rib/slick.

I only got 28,000 out of a set of E rated on a 1 ton crew cab(Falken WIlpeak) and 24,000 out of the E rated ones on the Tundra.(Rocky Mountain, also E rated)

And that was running down to the cords. They don't wear flat either.

My faves are still good old BFG A/T's but their spacing is known for grabbing rocks and throwing them into the fender with a big bang. (We have a mile long washed gravel road to our 4 tracks.)

I DID Like that the Falken/Rocky Mountain had a 3 ply sidewall like BFG and some others though. Most E rated are still 2 ply sidewalls.

What is Knich? I googled them to see what they do after seeing their partnership with Yamaha and I can’t find anything.

Really? I had a set and they were awesome. My sister used them on her car also and never had an issue and my dad still uses them for his trucks. Never once had an issue with them

Had Falken Wildpeak AT E Rating. Had a 55,000 mile warranty from the manufacture. They lasted on my f250. I went with them because of RV2 and were cheaper than Toyo.

I started buying tires at discount tire also because of reed. Then grabbed falken because of villopoto. On my 3rd set now and love them. I've had great luck with the them hauling the camper to a lot of races.

Is that 10 ply rating with only 2 ply sidewalls? Are we talking E range load rating for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks? I've been using Discount Tires since long before they supported Reed. I get good wear and ride from Cooper tires.

Walmart has their own spec for all there tires, they are made much cheaper than a tire you would get anywhere else and don't last nearly as long.

I had the exact opposite experience. My set of Wildpeak went forever.

My racing Civic has Falken Azenis 205-15's on 8in wide wheels ... they work great!!
Then again I need grip not miles. laughing
Highly recommend them to anyone.
OP needs to change the title.

I tried some Falken tires at one point and loved them, best handling tires I have had on my Nissan Titan. And yes they did wear pretty fast compared to others. But I do remember they were within their rated mileage. Bottom line is they come with a softer rubber that of course does just what I experienced.....better handling but shorter life. In dealing with tires from DH racing, moto racing, and many different truck applications....most tires are designed and built for specific needs. Even your $79 Accord/Camry grocery-getter tires.

Always amazes how a full-sized car tire can be cheaper than a much smaller moto tire or MTB tire. Damned supply and demand bull$hit!

Obviously you didn't even read my post. The E rated 10 Plys are a 3 ply sidewall which I also posted I DID like.

Both sets of mine were 3 ply. There is a reason you see more expensive, Toyos, BFG, Nittos, or Michelins etc etc.

I got 60K out of the stock Firestone Transforce ATs, and not even all the way worn.

I ran the Falkens to the cords.

I’ve used a discount tire since they’ve been in business. Like someone else mentioned they will price match so you won’t find a cheaper tire anywhere else. The good thing about them is the service after you buy. I recently bought a used Toyota Tacoma work truck, came with Twenty’s and the truck was a dog with them. Called discount and asked them to keep n eye out on some stock wheels/tires that come n on a trade in. Next day I’m down there getting used Michelin’s that had about 100 Miles on them and a set of stock Tacoma wheels. $25 a piece on the tires and same on the wheels. In and out for around $250 total

I am on board with spending with those that support the sport, I was bummed about jimmy johns. we started eating there every Thursday. I sent an email with a pic of receipt to JJs office, saying how the mx sponsorship is how I found out about them and now we eat there every week.surprisingly a guy emailed me back and said they were pumped on the marketing and return. then, gone lol.
if its at a local race or on a pro team that's what I try to buy or get. same thing I shop local for groceries gas etc. watch what happens when sponsors don't sell...ermm pretty simple.

Probably. Try them on a 1 ton towing a 15,000 lb 3 axle 5th wheel now and then and over snowy passes. Like I said, at 50% the treads are solid ribs/slicks. They barely lasted longer on a half ton tundra, same 10 Ply E rated.

Even with their 3 ply sidewall, they wont last like Toyo, Nitto, BFG, Michelins can handle real use.

In a way, having the Championships on different networks (with different promoters) does not help the promote sport either. Very little (if any) mentioned about outdoor as the supercross season wraps up.
