No more Chaparral tires

Have (had) Chaparral tires on my SD. Cheap tires I had got from Johnson's. Got a flat on the left rear Friday. Both rears were close to bald. My usual method is to have newer tires up front. When the rears wear out, buy 2 new tires, put those on the front and the old fronts on the back. Keeps me from having to buy 4 tires all at once. So I called Johnson's and they don't stock Chaparral's anymore. Called other places and they said Johnson's was the wholeseller too. No more of these in AK. Blast... $800 later I have 4 new tires. Vativa's. Messes up my rotation plan. And I hope these are still stocked 3 years from now. (But might have a new rig by then)

My old front Chaparral's have about half life left. Let me know if anyone wants them. Radial XT, LT235/85R16, Load Range E
