Become good friends with a Bridgestone employee. I reckon most tyre manufacturers would probably offer similar discounts to their employees, I'm sure there's a pretty decent mark-up on most tyres.

Now if only Bridgestone would buy BF Goodrich... Ain't gonna happen though according to my contact. Ever. She was quite emphatic about it.

I reckon about 75-80% of the serious off-roaders up here run on BFG AT/MT, then a toss up between Bridgestone A/T, Maxxis, Toyo and a few of the other brands, not many though. I reckon about about the same % of new SUVs and "On-Road" 4wds are running Bridgestone HTs, if not higher.
