The Tire Rack Rating:
The Tire Rack is the only place to buy wheels and tires for your cars. I have used The Tire Rack on several occasions for almost 10 years now and have always been impressed. When buying tires through the Tire Rack the first thing you will notice is how easy they are to do business with. Whether you call them on the phone or visit their website, http://www.tirerack.com/ all you need is the year, make and model of your car to get matched up with the perfect tires for your vehicle.
If you call them you will speak with a friendly knowledgeable person who will not only make sure you find the right size tires, but also help you weigh the pros and cons of various tire options. Weighing the pros and cons is a nice feature given that The Tire Rack provides a wide range of choice given the 18 different brands they represent including: Avon, Bridgestone, BFGoodrich, Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear, Michelin, Pirelli, Toyo and Yokohama.
If you prefer to shop online, all you need to do is enter your car make model and year and Tire Rack's website will return the original tires that the manufacturer had equipped your car with and also all sorts of other options to help optimize your driving experience.
Whether you shop online or over the phone, you will find Tire Racks prices far cheaper than other stores even when factoring in shipping charges. I have purchased snow tires through these guys twice and in doing so saved quite a bit of money.
The first time I used the Tire Rack for snow tires was rotten luck as my local NTB store did not stock any snow tires for 17 inch wheels. I called the Tire Rack who not only had several tires to choose from but also mounted and balanced those tires on rims for me. They were then delivered to my house in less than a week.
Once Tires are received you can either put them on the car yourself or take them to any shop or tire store who will charge $10-$15 per tire to install. Its very easy to do.
Obviously I'm a raving fan of the The Tire Rack. Hope your experience with them is as good as mine have been.
