Just thought I would post up to anyone who is looking for a deal on tires.
I just got 6 General Grabber tires in 315-75-16 from Discount Tire Direct on ebay for $273 per tire.
Not a hookup price, but competitive with all the local So Cal vendors I tried. The best parts of the deal:
1. Tires are in stock
2. Delivery literally took 2 business days
3. No sales tax for CA buyers
4. Free shipping
5. Until 12/31/12, Bill Me Later via Paypal is offering 18 months interest free finance on orders over $900
I tried 4 local vendors, and they were all around that price, but nobody had stock. I was given delivery dates of 1/19/13 or later.
Of the 4 where I asked about financing, they were 12 months interest free at 26.99% to 28.99% APR.
Bill Me Later, which i use a lot, is offering 18 months interest free at 19.99% APR.
It sure did help take the bite out of my order of 6 tires.
