Default Tire Price Confusion.

I usually run BFG AT KO's. I was going to try Copper SST's after seeing them and talking to a guy with the BFG's on the front and Copper's on the rear. He said he switched to Coppers for cost savings. However, I priced Coppers this morning and was quoted $40.00 more per tire. These tires are D rated compared to an E rating on the BFG's Am I being taken?

Your best bet to assume you are getting a good deal is to use sites like 1010tire.com or the tirerack.com and that sort of thing.

The place I go to is priced way under these sites and the service is great but some of the major chains are way over those sites so it is buyer beware.
