Question Tires for my Accent corn-popper

Back from our Safety Inspection at renewal time!!!!!

I will need tires for my 2003 Accent commuter corn-popper car in about 6 months or so, so is Discount Tire cheaper than The Tire Rack after it is all said and done??

I've bought many a set from TTR over the years and always got hit w/ the shipping per tire, but no taxes is why I'm asking??

Re: Tires for my Accent corn-popper

I'm just the opposite. I've been buying tires at Discount for years and just this last time got hit for shipping. They were at their wherehouse in state about 1/2hr away and he wanted to charge me $15.00 a tire. I told him to keep them and I'd go to Big O and he immediately dropped the charges. I think I would have been paying for someone lunch.

That's why I've started using http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/home.do
for the last few years.

Custom Muff. want's about $70+ each mounted and balanced w/ a road hazard is why I'm going cheap.

I've never used a road hazard in my life!!

Looks like that link want's about $45/tire!!

And I'm here ta say, the Avid Touring are GOOD tires!!

Re: Tires for my Accent corn-popper

I compared Tire Rack to my local Firestone store for my Bridgestones. When shipping, mounting and balancing was figured in, my local dealer was about $10 higher for all four tires. I'd rather do business locally. PLUS - My Firestone guy allowed an exchange if my tires wound up not fitting. Try that with a mail order tire.

Don't know if you have BJs / Costco / Sams Club near you but don't forget them. They are always competive and most offer road hazard and lifetime rotation and balance.
