I would rather use premounts myself. It would also cost less.

Make no mistake everyone will be running premounts. The reason I am having to mount tires is because some of the tires being considered are new to the market, and to save time they were overnighted from Japan with several insert combinations to try.

Jason,

Somebody pointed out that it was likely cheaper to fly from the Left Coast to Little Rock, AK as opposed to Memphis, TN. Logic was that Little Rock is on this side of the Mississippi River.

Drive from Little Rock is 130 miles while drive from Memphis is 70 miles.
