I've been looking for two sets of tires for 3500/4500 trucks. The local shops don't have any in stock or the price is $150 more per tire than online. What site online is your go to? I was looking at simple tire.com but don't want to send $2500 to someone out of the blue.

Wal Mart,

We've bought 4 sets online there now, some are brand names some not.
'
The tires are as good as paying higher costs from a tire store.

I've used Tirerack.com. a couple of times not the cheapest option, but I got what I wanted.

Tried ordering there a couple weeks back, after a week they had no idea when arrival would be.
I cancelled the order.
They credited 50%!?!
Took 50 minutes to get the other 50% credited.
While discussing/straightening it out I ordered from DTD, they arrived the next day.

95% of my tires come from Walmart.Com

They usually are cheaper than anyone else.

Toyo, Nitto, Nokian mostly...

I have been buying from these guys for years. Can't get studded snow tires locally. These guys are great, I just paid them $1,003 for a set of Nokian studded tires.

I've only used them once earlier this year for a tire/wheel combo and everything went great. They actually ended up cheaper from what I could find local especially on the wheels. I'd use them again if they had what I was looking for.

My favorite is Discount Tire Direct but have ordered from Tire Rack with good success.

On my last order from Tire Rack, I got one tire that had a really old build date and they exchanged it with no issues. The paid for return shipping, too.

I've had great luck with Amazon.
I ordered 5 tires for my Jeep Wrangler. Two show up on time and couldn't find tracking on the other three. Contact Amazon and they refund me for the three tires. Next day the three tires show up. WIN!

Then I order four tires for my Cherokee. I had them sent to a installer figuring $20 each mount ,balance and dispose is better than doing the M&B myself.
I show up at the installers for my appointment and the guy says he doesn't have me down for the appointment and he doesn't have anyone there to do it if I was. Says he can get me in ten days from then. I said okay and left. I was pissed. Called Amazon and relayed my displeasure. The young lady asked if there was somewhere else close to me that would install them sooner for me. I told her I can do it myself. She gave me a full refund on the tires and installation! I went back and picked up the tires and did it myself.

Nine tires for the price of two! Let's see you beat that!

Tirerack has gotten pretty big for their britches, they were good back when, now they are not the price leader, they don't want to let you buy by size ...they want you to put in your vehicle and then limit the sizes and load ranges. Doing much better and easier and more fair shipping with smaller web sellers.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

3 weeks ago, I got 4 tires from Tirerack and instead of them telling me what would fit my truck, I told them what I wanted. They had to ship the tires from Atlanta, Ga., on their dime, and I picked them up in Shreveport, save about a $100 shipping. Cost $100 to have a place mount and balance them, but I still came out ahead. 60,000 mile tires, out the door, mounted and balanced for around $650, and I got what I wanted.

I got fed up with them over this about a year back.
Placed order, everything went through just fine.
Hour later I get a email, we can't ship these "summer tires to your location due to the local climate".
Wanted a waiver signed stating that the vehicle/tires would only be used in 'summer conditions'.
Cancelled and never went back to them.

I just installed 6 Otani oh650 tires on my 5500 4x4. They were $213.00 each delivered from, don't hate me....Walmart. com.

Shiooed quick enough and are killer skins for the money.

Are the tires delivered to you or to the local store for installation?

Mine were always 'for pickup' at my local store.

I've had great service from Discount Tire Direct but I order in the store. They can get anything you can get online and usually a lot faster. They also honor the best price Discount Tire Direct offers online for the tires, including discounts and rebates. The Discount Tire stores are a division of the company Discount Tire Direct. I've found their in store service to be excellent... but always check their online prices before going into the store...

Wish that we had a 'store' around here.
