Best place to get dirt cheep tires
 
Already know what tire I want, just not sure where to buy it.
Looking for nitto trail grappler 33x12.50x15 mt
220/tire was the cheapest I could find on the Internet, and that was not installed.

My question to you is where do you buy your tires and why?

I buy virtually all my tires at Discount Tire Direct (online) because they have great prices, fast, free shipping, and excellent customer service.

why: good prices, great service, there are a lot of stores in my area and I have along history as a customer

I recently started using Discount Tire. I stopped in one day to have a flat fixed. I went to eat lunch and when I returned the flat was fixed at no charge. Manager said just come see me when you need tires. I have been back for 2 sets. Best service ever.

I agree with the previous posters. America's Tire aka Discount Tire has always had the best deals in my region. Great customer service to boot. I bought the warranty so they replace them for free whenever I end up with a nail in the sidewall (I have horrible luck with road debris so it works wonders for me). You just have to pay the tax on the tire.

A lot of tire shops will not install a tire larger than what the OEM's install on a vehicle. You need to check with the shop you plan to use.

That must be a NJ thing...i've never seen that in any of the states i've been to.

It just may be in Jersey but it's fact we have to live with. We have too many lawyers looking for work.

My buddy owns a Good Year shop in Jersey. He'll put any size tire on that you want. I've seen quite a few Jeeps in his shop that he was upgrading their tires.

Another vote for Discount Tire.

I have gotten a few sets of tires a DT and here in Texas they put over sized tires on for me. They have also mounted and balanced tires with me just taking them up there loose in a different car.

Occasionally they run buy 3 get the 4th free or similar deals and will also buy your old tires. I got 5 tires for the price of 3 last time because of those two things combined last time. I believe they'll also price match and They also do free lifetime rotation and balancing and flat fixing on tires you buy from them.

I had two shops that would not do it. My nephew runs a shop and sells me wholesale and does not do that so it's not a problem for me. It may be a corporate policy if they are not independent shops. I used to work for a major car rental corp and they would only put on matching make/model tires if one needed to be replaced because of the potential lawsuits.
