quote:with sams, usually. PLUS they do free flat repairs. i purchased mine from NTB, but that's b/c they were the only company locally that carried the specific tire i wanted with a pricematch.
Does the price include lifetime balance, mounting, rotation?
quote:Granted, you're right. I guess more of it was the first part (didn't really want to do it). At the time it was worth 2 bucks a tire not to have to do it with the spare tire equiptment in the trunk. I'll be taking them to the same place again when they need roatated, again for 8 bucks. lol

quote:You've nailed the problem with mail/I-net order tires ! I bought my last set of tires from TireRack, & will probably never do it again. Example, using the new BFG Traction T/A's mentioned above: 185/65/14's, From TireRack, set of four $248.28 delivered. Add $44 for mounting & balancing & valve stems, = $292.28. My favorite local tire shop(also does *EXCELLENT* alignments!) quoted me a flat $322 for 4-out-the-door on the same tire. What do I get for that extra $29.72? Lifetime balance & rotation, whenever I show up & ask for it, with no problems. Just a rebalance & rotate on 4 wheels costs $32 or more at most of the tire shops in my area- and that, sports fans, eats up all the savings on the *FIRST* rebalance! I goofed once, but not again. And I'll probably buy a set of those BFG's later this summer- from Walt in Longview. They look like real good tires, I was happy with my BFG Comp T/A's, & will be sure of good service after the sale.
