Ya know, I would... but I'm kinda tied up here serving in Afghanastan at the moment so I figured I'd pass the time trying to learn what I could from the resources I had.

Also if you tell them that you can get a set of tires that TR does have cheaper, they'll beat the price on the spot. I think when I got tires for the Mazda2, I picked up some rock hard Yokohamas that were $10 cheaper on TR, and the dude knocked off $15 per tire in store while ordering.
Thanks for the tip! Sounds like that will be a good strategy for when I get back.

Finally got some time to log in and check this. Thank you all for the feedback and tips. I'll be sure to use as much of that as I can when I get some summer wheels. For now, I placed an order for General Tire Altimax Arctics from TireRack. Got a good deal with a rebate and used their local installer options so I could make it as easy as possible for family members helping me keep the car in shape. I'll need the winters by the time I finally get home from this deployment.

I'll be peeling through the forum in no time to find a wheel/tire combo to buy on TR - unless I snag the 6ULs.

I know it's an old thread, but when I shop for tires on Tirerack, I wait for their clearance items. I just picked up 2 Goodyeaer F1 Assymetric 245/40/17 for $112 a piece. Pay attention to the DOT though.
