Nice. I thought I did well at $650! Good looking car

This year I have seen the sale around tax season, 4th of July and now for Labor day. I don't know if it is a regular thing. I hope so. I want to get my 225 NT-01's around next tax season.

Goodwin Racing has lower prices on the Konigs and better sizing than Discount Tire, and they actually know what they're talking about when you want to know fitments, is fender rolling needed for a specific size, etceteras.

I am sure Goodwin can provide more detailed Miata related support. But I have had nothing but great customer service from discount tire. They sold me the 15x7 and 15x9 Dial Ins for $122x4 = $488- $100 -$60 = $328 (same price for the 15x8 too). Goodwin prices are $119 per wheel or $476. Sure the base price is $3 per wheel cheaper, but not after the promotions. Not starting a pissing contest, just stating that this is an awesome deal if you are in the market for wheels.


If you are looking for other wheels it might be worth giving discount tire a call or use their online chat. They can get lots of wheels that are not shown on the website

Discount tire is running their super awesome deal again Nov26-29th. If you have their credit card you can get another $60 off and get a set of Dial-In 15x7, 15x8 or 15x9's for $328!

I am debating on getting a set of 15x8's in gray so I can fit the 11.5" Mini brakes without wheel spacers.

Anyone want to buy a barely used set of 15x7 Dial-Ins in Gray?

So cheap, and just as I was getting ready to order another set of 6ULs. I wish I didn't hate the looks of the Dial-in.

FYI, Discount runs these sales several times through the year, usually around the holidays. I have gotten as much as $300 in rebates buying 4 wheels and 4 tires using their credit card. Also, if you use their card it's zero interest for 6 months, or a year depending on the total price so you can spread the cost over a couple of months.

Not sure about that. I went to the local DT to rebalance after my brother-in-law had some nasty offs in the Red car. They found one of the rims was bent (Advanti Storm S1) but were unable to source it. I ended up ordering from Tire Rack.

Would be nice if they carried the Advanti brand -- and Maxxis track tires -- and . . . .

I don't think discount tire and discounttiredirect.com are run by the same people. But I do know that when I called last year and ordered the dial ins they said they could get advantis too. You have to call, the website dosent have everything.

When I bought Dunlop ZIIs a couple years ago, Tire Rack was the only place that had them. My local Discount Tire actually ordered them from Tire Rack and matched TR's price.

This is crap because the tire rack charges for shipping + tax and they monopolize the models so they can raise thr price. Btw, costco has RE71s for $114 each and they usually give you a $70 discount for a set of 4 bridgestones or Michelins.

Costco won't mount loose wheels and tires and won't mount non stock sizes. That's a huge fail in my book.

It's like $20-$30 cheaper than tirerack per tire. My acquaintance from discount tire mounts them/balances for $50. If you like tire rack go for it, I'm just trying to save people some money.

btabor, I appreciate you posting about the sale. I got my second set of 9" Dial Ins today.
You helped me save money. Thanks!
