Question Best place for tires?

So its time to buy some tires for the 2500hd. I have found that nobody locally can touch the prices off tires off tirerack.com discounttire.com discounttiredirect.com they even offer free freight with in the us. Everyone I have talked to locally are between $600-800 more for the same set. I would rather not go down south. But I am a cheap prick. Does anyone have guy or a place or know how I can them up here for a GOOD price?

I like to give my business to symons tire in Mission, I never compared their prices to the US but they do give a lot of service.
Even helped me out for free by balancing a set of tires I bought at tires plus.

I've bought tires twice at tires plus and both times they vibrated a lot. Both times I ended up balancing them else where to after trying twice at tires plus.
Needless to say, I don't go there anymore.

There is the problem ur comparing a website to a store. Course they can sell stuff cheaper because they aren't limited to a local market like a tire store has to depend on and have far less overhead because they have a giant warehouse that moves mountains of tires to cover the cost

Sorry about your bad luck at Tiresplus but I will not buy tires from anyone else!! Dalton and all of the guys at Tiresplus offer excellent service and advice there prices are usually a lot cheaper than others as well and there selection is second to none.
