Place to buy tires?

I’m going to get a new set of tires here shortly. Looking at either the Milestar Patagonia mt’s or Hankook dynapro mt. First of all which would you get? And second where do you buy tires from. I’ve found good prices on Walmart’s website, and discounted wheel warehouse, and a decent price on discount tire. Could also order through my mechanic but price is a little higher. Obviously want to find the best deal for them that I can but from somewhere that won’t cause me any headaches.

If the jeep is mostly dedicated offroad/deep mud the Hankook would be better. If it is going to be on road often the Milestar will be much better.

I have bought a ton of tires and wheels from Discount Tire stores as well as online through Discount Tire Direct. They have always gone above and beyond.

Is discount tire good about the price match that they have on their site?

It depends. Many other companies advertise low prices but tack on large shipping charges and taxes etc.

Discount tire will match or beat their out the door price.

DTD doesn't charge taxes or shipping. Don't expect them to match a super low listed tire price on a competitors site plus give free shipping and no taxes. You have to look at the whole picture.

I've seen DTD have a tire listed for $300.

A competitor have it listed for $250.

Once you get to the end of your shopping cart that $200 tire is now $400+.

As for in store, they tend to match anyone's OTD price as well.

i had an online quote from DTD that included $50 forum discount and NO TAX. local DT matched that quote. they had to charge me tax but the discounted the tires so the out the door price was the same.

Discount Tire that I use is 100% OK with price matching ANY price you find on the internet, even at a competitors web site or store front. Do you shopping on line, print up the best deal you can find and take that page to the local store. "THEY USE TORQUE WRENCHES EVERY TIME!!!" Especially if you tell them you are excessive compulsive about proper torque on your Lug Nuts, then let them see you watching them.

The last time I bought a set of tires, I got them from Sam's Club. They price matched as well.

I have used Discount Tire this year for truck, Jeep, 3 trailers. Their hazard warranty is a great option for off road Jeeping where the trails are rocky. They had nice discounts for Black Friday, too.

Got my Patagonia's at Discount Tire on their Black Friday sale. Was just crazy, couldn't beat it.

But I also buy from a local shop occasionally, Tires2Go in Mesa... Put a set of 4 summer tires on my Miata for $218 OTD.

My DTD quote was the same as their webpage. No additional forum discount and I also had to pay tax.

Still not a bad deal overall.

Did you call in? You can only get the discount over the phone.

What state do you live in? Usually DTD doesn't charge tax. Maybe you live in the same state as the company so you have to pay. Unless you ordered from Discount Tire online/not DTD.

I sent them a direct forum message. The quote they sent didn't show any forum discount. No mention of a phone call. Oh well, live and learn.

Yep, I like DT. They had the lowest price and the fastest service when I replaced the tires on my TJ.

I vote discount tire as well. It is nice being able to go to any DT and have the tires balanced and rotated at no cost. Especially when you are out of town on wheeling trips.

Thank you for the shout out as well. Thanks for the reminder when out wheeling it may be a good idea to check your balance, especially if you are wheeling hard at low pressure. Your wheels may spin inside the tires.

In Arizona, from 1973 through current, I have purchased all of my tires and wheels from Discount Tire. This included tires for fleets of trucks that I was responsible for in business.

They have always been very competitive, offer excellent service, and their Road Hazard warranty is second to none..IMO

The above is based on my own experience, and no I don't work for DT.

I buy ALL my tires online from Discount Tire Direct. Never had a problem. And I only buy on Memorial day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas when the deals are phenomenal. Takes a little planning ahead but it works. Just purchased (4) 285/75R/16 tires. Deal was 20% off. Free shipping, no tax. Mounted and balanced them myself. I saved $440 compared to a local purchase/install.

Discount Tire Direct!!

I have used them for several years now with all my wheel and tire purchases, and likely will be making another purchase this winter from them.

BEST pricing hands down!

BEST customer service I've ever dealt with from any type of company (except maybe T-Mobile...they rock too).

FAST shipping.

You can't go wrong.

Tire Rack can get lost as far as I'm concerned. Prices are higher than a cat's back and they tack on shipping! Are you kidding?

for those who do not have a discount tire locally you might try tirebuyer.com. They have local installers they ship to for free and give you an up front install/balance price, and have heavy discounts on Nitto tires right now along with instant rebates not the mail in rebates. I know DT says they wont be under sold but it will not allow me to enter the url address on their website.

when I try to use the "found a lower price" feature on DTD's webpage it will not let me enter the url for tirebuyer checkout price. nothing to do with the forum. It says it is an invalid url. thanks this is the link I am trying send to see what DTD will do.https://www.tirebuyer.com/tirebuyer/...rtId=226634654

Our apologies for the confusion, jadmt!

The "cart" URL is not shareable in most instances, but if you submit just the listing URL for the tire in question we can calculate the OTD cost for you as long as you include the shipping zip code (which you're prompted with).

PM coming your way
