    Tirerack vs Onlinetires

    There is a lot of love on here for TireRack but I just bought up a set of Firestone Firehawk Wide Ovals: 275/40/17 Front & 295/35/18 Rear from Onlinetires.com with the difference being $61.80 after taxes and shipping which should cover mounting and balancing.

    TireRack.com: $801.92
    Onlinetires.com:$740.12

    Onlinetires is worth shopping, especially considering they offer free or 50% off shipping for select tires.

    Just thought I'd share!

    Online tires do have great prices except shipping. I'm not sure where there headquarters are located but it was over $130 to ship to N.C. for 4 tires compared to tirerack's $40.

    I just ordered today and mine are coming from:
    Online Tires - ATV Inc.
    Address:
    2395 Tifal Avenue
    Duarte, CA 91010

    I bet they only have one warehouse and N.C. is pretty far away. Tirerack is great for having multiple locations to pull from for both shipping and inventory purposes. I have ordered from both and like them both however for me this time Online tires was cheaper.

    I like Discount tires as shipping is always included. Also till the end of March you get an instant $100. rebate when buying any 4 tires online only.

    Yeah, this is true. I priced a set, the shipping was 3x what TireRack's was.

    Not sure how I've missed this site. I've been searching all over the net for some good deals the last month or two and have yet to see that site. They've got some good deals.

    Just watch the shipping.

    Another site with good prices AND decent shipping is Tiresavings.com.

    How good is Tiresavings.com? Have you dealt with them before? I purchased two Bridgestone Potenza Pole Positions a few months back for the rear and want to get two more for the front. There's a $50 difference with them when all is said and done. If they are a decent site, I'll buy there.

    No, I haven't dealt with them before. I just stumbled upon the website while searching for tires. However, FWIW, I did mention them to another member here, who later reported having a good experience with them.
