    Nitto terra grapplers 33" A/T tires on 18" XD addict wheels, Magnaflow exhaust, 2.5 leveling kit, K&N intake, and blacked out headlights and emblems for now
    I am looking into buying 18" XD addict rims and tires online because the prices are unbeatable. So I am wondering what site is best to purchase the wheels and tires from.

    For tires, I would have to say Discount Tire Direct about 99% of the time. Simply because they normally have the cheapest prices, price match if you find it cheaper elsewhere, and offer free shipping IIRC.

    For wheels, that's personal preference in my opinion:

    - 4wheelparts.com
    - westkycustoms.com
    - elementwheels.com <--- where I got the wheels for my Silverado

    Just google it and you can find pretty decent prices.

    Yeah finding cheap prices isent the problem, Im just worried about customer service if there is a cracked rim or if I have any problems.

    I've bought from tirerack once and discounttiredirect twice.
    Tirerack was stictly a web deal, but discount tire I dealt with over the phone quite a bit and their service was great.

    We'd love to earn your business. We don't stock all of the XD wheel designs but we can certainly order them in. Give us a ring or PM us if you are looking for something specific. We'd be happy to help.

    Discount Tire Direct by far, they are awesome to work with!! I ordered my tires and wheels from them, I ordered the tires on a Monday and received them on Wednesday (they will price match plus they have FREE shipping). I called them Wednesday after I received my tires and asked if they carried Moto Metal since I didn't see them on their website, just hoping I would luck up. The sales rep told that me he was sorry but offered me comparable products. I told him that I had my mind set on the Moto Metal 951's in black, he told me that he would call me back within the next 30 minutes, that he was going to see what he could do. 15 minutes later, I received a call back and he told me that he could order them direct from Moto Metal and send them to me (also price match and FREE shipping). They showed up on my porch Friday. Absolutely great service. If I'm on the phone and I don't receive great service, no business from me. I'm 21 years old and I'm in college and I work hard for my money, so I will not just spend my money with anybody... Sorry for the long post

    Yeah, I gots boost
    I got my xd spys from extremecustomwheels.com and will likely buy from them from now on. As far as tires go on the other hand... DTD likely has my business as long as they keep their great prices

    Hmmm, wondering if the wonderful people at Discount Tire Direct could give us TW memebers a nice little discount (matched and beat cheapest found + an additional __% off). Certainly this would earn my business when I ditch my stockers. I'm sure it do the same for most if not nearly all other TW members.

    What do you say DTD guys/gals?
