Have any of you had any experience with Big "O" tires? I looked at them last year when I was in Jackson, WY. They seem to have a very good warranty and reasonably priced.

I had a set of big "O" tires put on my truck and trailer several years back while in Kentucky. Had good service from all of them and the folks at big "O" were super to work with while being installed. Even brought us lunch. That is my only experience with them.

I had a set on my 70 dodge charger back in 91, They did not last long but to be honest the ball joints were bad.

Big O tires are a franchise dealer group that is a part of the TBC Retail Group. Also under TBC are Tire Kingdom, Merchants, and NTB. TBC was acquired by Sumitomo Corporation of America a few years ago.

I have Big O tires on my SUV, am quite pleased with them and plan to put them on my F350 when it comes time for replacement.

After picking up a honey locust thorn in the sidewall of one of the tires on the SUV recently, BIG O replaced the 3 year old tire with a new one, only charging for the labor to change it out.

I would recommend Big O any day, never had a problem with my pu, my suv, my four door sedan. Willing to help and fix any problems. Better then some of the other well know tire company's here in the west.

I have had more dealings with Big O tires than anyone on the planet in the last
four years. I bought a set of E Rated Denman trailer tires (4 tires) and before
it was over Big O had to warranty seven (7) tires. I have no complaints about
the people of Big O, always lived up to their part of the warranty, but I did grow tired of visiting stores in Co., Mo., Ia., Nv., and Florida. The dealer in
Reno, Nv. replaced the Denmans with Carlisle and they definitely outperformed
the Denmans but one did have a complete loss of the tread in Birmingham, Al.
while traveling to Fla., had nothing left to give the dealer in Fla. but he did replace the last Denman I had, the spare, when it developed a tennis ball sized
bulge on the sidewall. I must make note that the Denmans were made in Mexico
and the Carlisles were from China. I have new wheels to upgrade to 16 inch LT
tires. We will see. Big O DOES live up to their warranty.

Im running them now and they are smooth, quiet and have been reliable for the year I have had them.

X2. The service I have received from the local Big O is outstanding.

The only reason I do not own Big O brand tires is because they do not make the size/LI tire I need, otherwise I would not think twice on owning them. I have had them on previous vehicles.
