Discount Tire

Has anybody ordered tires from their warehouse to your house? LOL Does that make sense? I'm ordering some new meats tonight and I just was wondering how long they normally take to ship. I was thinking that it couldn't be too fast but the tires are coming from Ohio so I guess it wouldn't take to long.

why not order them out of a store where they will most likely have them in stock noob.
plus if you buy them at the store, they wont charge you extra for mount and balance.

Yep, I ordered my KM2s from Discount Tire Direct's eBay store. It took less than a week for me to get them from when I ordered them

I've bought 2 sets of tires from them....they have some pretty damn good promotions at times too. $100 off a set of four + free shipping. Fast shipping. One set I got over a span of 3 days. lol.

Because most shops will mark up the prices higher then you can get them off the internet from sites like TireRack or Discount Tire. I plan on buying my next set of tires online as well. I'd rather pay the extra shipping and still pay less, even with them being mounted and balanced.

Yea I'd rather spend the cheap amount online then pay more in a store even if they would cut me a small break on mount and balance and everything because all I have to pay for is an alignment. Well, and the tires haha.

Yeah Jim's right. Discount actually had them for 10 bucks less than the ebay store but when you factored in tax it turned out to be more in store. Worked out in the end for me

I ordered tires from them for my mustang, I thought they came quick like a week or so. Even after shipping they were cheaper then anybody else around. My friend installed them.

the free shipping promos AND no sales tax makes it well worth it to pay to have em mounted and balanced... My next set of tires will be purchased online for sure

I am not sure if they do free mounting and balancing if you order rims too, but a couple guys I know ordered wheels and tires already mounted and balanced from some other mail order place and not a single tire was balenced right. I think all the mail order places that do free mounting and balancing know you aren't going to mail it back if it wrong.

Thats the normal price around here for a over size tire on a big rim. 20 a tire. They tried to charge me $160 but I said hell no and brought them my receipts from buying it from their online store and they dropped the price down.
