I purchased 5 Nitto trail grapplers from discount tire direct. They matched the lowest price I found online and they all showed up to door in four days. Couldn't be happier with the service.

I almost forgot to say welcome to the forum and congradulations on your first Jeep.

Do you know what kind of tires you are looking for? How do you plan on using your Jeep?

I thought the treatment they give sounded exactly the same as Discount Tire. So after doing a little research I found this.

Discount Tire and America's Tire are two unique names for one nationwide company. Discount Tire started in Michigan in 1960 and has since spread its wings from coast to coast with over 800 stores. However, in some regions, other companies already held the name 'Discount' in a similar context. In these regions, we go by the name America's Tire. This name embodies our truly national presence and reinforces our position as the most friendly, courteous and knowledgeable tire experts in the country.

Any purchase made at any Discount Tire or America's Tire store can be serviced at locations bearing either name.

Well that settles it! All tires from this day forward should be purchased from the above.

Maybe my post came out wrong. It was very cool for Discount Tire to give me a new tire. I watched them road force balance them after 3k miles and seen how much weight they all took. One took more weight than the others so I complained that it was a defect and they gave me a new one. It was driving fine but I am anal and read somewhere about you shouldn't need more than X amount of weight to balance.

suicideking One more for MTR's.

Check tirerack.com and sears. If you have a local Sears, they will usually match anything you find online + will do free rotations.

Many other places will match prices, so find what you want and the price you want, then get someone local to match the price.

Also check Home - Discount Tire Direct

crittert /\ I love my MTR's too. They are much quieter than I expected them to be too.
01-31-2013 09:37 AM
Gunner I love my MTR's, they grip so much better than the toyo AT's that I replaced them with.

I bought mine at Discount Tire. They were willing to match online prices and offer lifetime warranty on all damange even damage created by me (it cost a little extra for the warranty). Also included with the purchase is lifetime rotation and balance at no additional cost. One of the 5 Goodyear MTR's needed twice as much weight to balance compare to the others so I pointed that out and they called it a manafacurer defect and gave me a new one. This was after 3k miles on the tires.

Fred1 If it wasn't clear. $25.00 per tire x 5, not bad.

(They did scuff a wheel- to which they immediately owned up and replaced it).
