    Tire Price$$

    I called a local Goodyear shop about 4 new Eagle F1 GS D3's and the guy quoted me an price of like 1505.00 $$ total- I thought this was a bit high since you can order them for 200.00$ a piece plus shipping from most web sites?Was this guy "drunk" or something. What do you guys think?

    I don't know about the guys status, but that price is outrageously high. Check discounttire.com and tirerack.com, I am sure either can beat that price.

    Tire rep

    I was thinking about ordering off a website like Tirerack (since threre are no Tirerack outlets anywhere near my residence) but if I buy from a website I still have to pay for shipping. Not sure what Tirerack charges for shipping but the Ws6store.com charges 60.00$ a tire for the Eagle GS-D3's. There is a "Discount Tire" outlet near my home so I guess I'll check with them next.
    My instincts told me 1505.00$ was insane, thanks guys for the feedback.

    Tirerack bounds 2 tires together and they get solid shipping rates from UPS & Fedex

    Do some research while you are at it, there are other tires out there. Personally I like BFG KDW, alot of peeps use Nittos, there are alot of diff tires out there for diff needs.

    Here I was bored

    KDW will save you $140 for a set of 4, $35 a piece cheaper than the Goodyear, and a very comparable tire

    I got my Eagle F1's for $1080 from America's Tire. These are for 17's. Also depends on what size rim you have.

    That is why almost all of us buy tires online as the prices from local shops are way off base.

    I even buy r-compounds (race tires) online! (with help from my sponsers of course )

    Cheaper than discounttire.com

    The reason the GS-D3's are so insanely expensive right now is that Goodyear had a strike last month and those tires are on backorder, which means the suppliers who actually have them are charging a lot more than they should be.

    Re tire

    Yeah I just got the same info from a guy at Discount Tire( Goodyear Strike). But he told me he will beat any competitors deal so he agreed to charge me 201.00 a piece plus 15.00 a piece for shipping=950.00$ all together-Not too bad.

    Yes, local dealers are nuts for their tire pricing. I have GS-D3's and I like them. I would like to try the KDW to though.

    F1s are what come on from the factory, no? There are better tires out there.
