$10 each? 20s? Sure. M/B/V is more like =$25-$40 a wheel.

Re: where to get the best price on tires

Well, I paid $11/each to mount and balance my 225 and 255/17's several years ago at Walmart..

I guess I'm not up on "dub's" is the term, isn't it????......

"The Rack" has always been good to me with good pricing.

I don't remember the last time I bought tires in a store.

Re: where to get the best price on tires

I was going to suggest Costco, but I see those are some pretty wide tires on a twenty inch rim. Definitely not your typical tire. hehe

Re: where to get the best price on tires

haha tire rack is your best bet, if you want a tire that they dont carry try discount tire.com

and sounds like theese are going on a camaro, youd just better have sone 16" brake rotors to justify them!!!

I just ordered new tires this summer and DiscountTire.com was the best price I found around. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/home.do

Re: where to get the best price on tires

Thanks guys for all the suggestions, but would you believe Sears beat those guys prices by $17.00-32.00 per tire.It's really about $100.00 per set for the tire size I need.And on top of that, no shipping charges.Sears has the best price yet.


Thanks Again
