REI I-net/mailorder customers- REI good with backorders?

I waited a little too long, & REI's on-sale tires I wanted(Serfas Drifters, 26x2.0, $16.99/ea, thru Mon Sept. 1), were out of stock & on back-order. I went ahead & ordered 'em last night. Of course everything on REI's website says for items on b/o no delivery estimates can be given, & I understand that.

Still- for anyone out there w/REI backorder experience- any ideas on ballpark figures- mebbe a couple of weeks, a month or two, longer? I'm in no big hurry for them, just want more "padding" for our rough old streets & more "anti-sink" for old local dirt roads than my current 26x1.5 Bontrager Satellite Plus tires offer. It *would* be nice to get 'em by Halloween, though!

For anyone who's interested, here's a link to the tires:
