Where did you buy your tires?

I have been pricing tires. A tire kingdom in town quoted me $795.96 + tax for BFG KOs 265/70/17. Other places are about $50 to $100 more on average. Why are they cheaper than most. Can they sell 2nd rate tires?

I get mine at Tirerack.com

Remember, when you buy tires to check the date code. It is four digits, like 3009. The first two signaify the week and the second two the year of manufacture. Never buy old tires!!!!!

I got mine from Sears, they were actually cheaper than every other place I priced, including all the online sites.

Discount has been good to me. The one I go to won't match the tirerack prices though.
