Last set of tires I got came from a local chain shop. They were within a couple of bucks of the lease expensive internet vendor. So don't count out the locals.

i always go with tire rack since a company sent me 4 right side tires...then of course I couldn't get them to send the correct tire without charging me more. I ended up contesting the charge with visa, then going with tire rack.

most local shops will price match and can usually get almost any tire as well.

I think I can get 5-10% off tire rack depending what it is.

I always use DiscountTire. They are usually the cheapest and are about a day shipping from me.

What size? and what useage? (Azenis are still my personal favorite for almost anything, disliked the soft sidewalled MX on track and haven't run the RS2)


Edge and Vulcan are my two main tire places too... I've never gone wrong through either.

the more they wear the more they'll suck in the rain....i personally never ran my rt-215s in the rain....the first time I did was the first time i ever lost control the car on the street.
