Best On Line Tire Stores For Duratracs????

Anyone know the best on line Tire Stores for Duratracs? I already have rims. The Tire Stores around here are way to high. They are wanting like $275 for 33x12.50x15. I read a post on here awhile back where a member got 33's shipped to his door for like $225, but I can't find it.

You may want to check with your local Goodyear and see if they will price match for you, they did for me.
I got a set of 5 Duratracs in 33x12.5x15 for $1225 after taxes ($245 ea) with mounting, lifetime balance/rotation and road hazard. One year no interest financing too.

I got mine from tirerack. $184 each before shipping. Shipping for 5 was like $60 or so and no tax. Cost me $90 to balance and install all 5 tires at the station down the street.

You might try Sears....I got mine there when Goodyear had a rebate going on. Their installation price at the time was pretty reasonable. I think I might have save just a couple of bucks if I went online.

By the time you order/get a install only price you might be getting real close to Sears price.

Watch your local tire stores too. I just so happened to hear a radio ad that the local Sullivan tire had a buy three get one free on goodyear tires a couple weeks ago. Duratracs or mtr's were included. Tried getting my hands on the mtr's cuz it would only have been $20 more but they only had one. Long story short I ended up with a set of 33x12.5x15 Duratracs mounted/balanced with road hazard for about $700

Wow, I bought mine in January for $180 a piece at my local Discount Tire, could they have gone up in price that much in less than a year?

Look for rebates.

I bought 4 33" DuraTracs from Discount

$100 instant rebate from discount tire
$100 rebate from Tread Lightly( $25 membership fee)
$60 rebate from Goodyear

Total for mount balance and after all rebates was $651.19

^^^This exactly. Except mine aren't 33s, but still a kick ass deal. Discount Tire Direct was super easy to deal with - I PM'd their rep Matt (Member Name: Discount Tire) and he helped out a bunch. Great folks to deal with.

The local goodyear shop offered to match tirerack's price for 5 315/70R/17's including shipping and tax so it's 1578 all in at either place. The local shop threw a liftime rotation/rebalance for an addintional 85 bucks on the table. If I buy them local I have to drive them down to the dealer (5 mins from the office but 1:20 from home) versus tirerack sending them right there. Any reason to go with the local place over tirerack? DTD was a bit more expensive.

I can't imagine not being able to find a local tire store that wouldn't be more than happy to match any online price when you bring them a printed quote for the exact tire that they sell. I'd much rather buy locally for a lot of reasons... better support, keeping my friends and neighbors employed, etc. I'd even pay slightly more to buy locally since I wouldn't have to worry about dealing with an impersonal website for something like tires that are apt to need more support than something like an Apple iPad I'd be happy buying online.

Yeah, I have bought 4 sets of tires from the Goodyear right around the corner from my house, they have always been willing to match online prices and I love that I can just drop off either one of our vehicles at any time and have the tires rotated, balanced, checked for punctures and repaired if needed at no cost.

And for those take the time to read this, let me tell you a story that guaranteed that I would be a returning customer...

I bought a set of 4 Goodyear Forterra's for my old truck and after about two years I had one cause a vibration at speeds over 55. I took it in and they said it had a broken belt and that they could pro rate it but there was one problem... they no longer made the tire in that size. I was rather upset. The tires still looked new, even still had the little whiskers on the sidewalls. That set of tires was almost $1000 and I wanted to keep them as a matched set. I hate not having matched tires.
After telling me that they no longer made the tires the shop manager offered to pro rate the entire set so that I could keep all of them matched. So he replaced all four tires with a brand new set of Wrangler AT's in the same size I had (31x10.5x15) for $300.

I don't think any online tire shop would have done that.
