anybody got a guy?

Does anyone have a "guy" a tire guy? I have the inner tread ware going on with my crapyears, so I wanted to order a set of Nitto NT05s, got a killer deal with Discount for $1050 on the 275/315 setup. The problem is DT says Nitto is on back order for 1-2 weeks on the 275s and 3-5 weeks on the 375s. So, my question is, are any of you guys a tire guy that stocks these or can get a hold of them for me. Or does anyone have a better suggestion for the tire?
I love the uber aggressive tred pattern and all of the stellar reviews...

yeah but not for $1050, and the back order comes from Nitto themselves.
So I don't think they could help.

Re: anybody got a guy?

OK, so no help from any of my guys either. Thanks for the look anyways.

So, the new question would be; what tire do you guys know of that is an UHP summer tire that has an agressive tred like the NT05? Vred? maybe, but it has to be availible in the 275/315 size.

Thx.

Vredestein Ultrac SUV Sessanta tires are a UHP Summer tire.....and in the 275/315 combo. I just put them on my Jeep a couple of weeks ago.

I've seen them for $870 shipped online...not sure if you can find them cheaper than that or not.
