I ordered a set plus one or 5 MT Baja Bosses back in March and got an estimated delivery date of April. Then a few weeks later it changed to May. Then late May, and now to late June. And while this is going on they start advertising a $100 rebate if you order a set now. So I called up Mickey Thompson, actually it’s owned by another company, to ask what was happening. I’m trying to get the 35/12.5/17s. So they say that they just shipped out a dozen sets. And that they aren’t even scheduled to run another batch for another 6 weeks. Also they can’t say if mine would be in there. And finally that I can’t get in on the rebate because I would have to re-order now.
Makes me think they’ve been reading Fords Bronco play book.

Combined with aggressive sales advertising and limited scheduling of running the product through production. It’s a thing of beauty. A sure fire way to win new customers.

You pretty much can't find anything these days. I had to look in a lot of corners to find my tires when none of the distributors had them.

The same size KO2's are backordered until June. Ridge Grappler's until July. There is a clear reason for this, but if we say it we will get dinged by the Mods, so I'll leave it up to you to figure it out.

Everything is backordered. I've pretty much given up at this point.

Even when you order "in stock" it's a lie more often than not these days.

looking at you, tirerack.

Beautiful.
So I get from this I should probably start looking and ordering NOW for my eventual upgrade to 37/13.50/17 SST pro’s or Baja Boss’s…
8K miles and counting on stock SAS tires.
just a matter of time, especially if I chunk them up on trails…

Yeah, the tire shortage is real.

I wanted the Mickey Thompson 255/85/17 but couldn't get them.

I think I found the last pair of Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 285/75/17 on planet earth. They are waiting for me at Discount Tire. Now I just need my Bronco.

It’s not just Mickey Thompson. It’s the entire rubber industry. The video below was made back in July of 2021, almost 9 months ago.

I would. I started ordering stuff for mine once I received a VIN. Figured to get a head start on it since the supply chain issues. Never dreamed all my orders would be here way before my Bronco. Thought I would still be waiting on some stuff while I enjoyed my new Bronco,,,,,, we see how that worked out. 😡😡

I’m in the same boat. I should have just ordered in January to at least get on the “list”. If anyone has a lead or wants to sell theirs, hit me up! 🤭
