    I've been trying to calculate which is cheaper..

    1) Tirerack.com and order tires and have them delivered to a local installer..

    or

    2) Look for a local deal somewhere around here (looking for recommendations provided by TW members.)

    Input?

    I was battling this decision for a couple months and after many calls to local and non local shops I decided to buy them from tirerack. OTD with shipping my firestone destination cost me $595 I found a tire shop that will mount and balance them for $15 bucks each. The lowest quote I found was for $780 OTD. I saved $125. The only thing I didnt try was asking if they would price match Tirerack, screwed that one up. all in all I would have to wait for the tires locally or get my tires in three days with tirerack.

    thanks for this recommendation.. i'm hoping they'll honor the price match from what i found on TireRack.com

    Overall, DT seems to be the better deal due to free shipping..

    Thanks!

    I bought from Tire rack a few weeks ago. It wasn't bad at all. Ordered the tires, and they were delivered the next week. I also ordered wheels, so I didnt have to worry about the installer part. Everything worked great.

    I buy from TireRack but I know that Sears will price match TireRack. Of course I just pick them up myself so I also save on shipping.

    FANTASTIC! Just got off the phone with DiscountTireDirect.com and had they offered me a better deal than TireRack.com (after shipping)..

    TireRack.com --> $418 after shipping
    DiscountTire --> $380 FLAT (free shipping)

    I'm satisfied. You can either fill out their survey or call Telin @ 800-589-6789 (ext 51874). FYI: They're located in AZ (tax purposes)

    Great for you! I just bought my dad a set of tires for his truck last weekend. $684 at Discount. They are serious about what they say, "We will not be undersold." Sears would have set me back over $800 on the same tires.

    I can easily say that they are one of a few companies left that takes customer service seriously. I have bought my last 4 sets of tires from them (all different locations) and have recieved top notch service at all of them.
