Online Tire Store Recommendations

I've decided on carrying an unmounted spare tire (have coach.net, but would prefer to have the tire with me). My Excursion runs Goodyear 255 70 22.5s. Found a place called tires-easy.com that has them in stock. Any other recommendations?

I don't buy tires on line. I have a tire guy and I wont buy them anywhere else. If something is wrong with it then what? There are lots of people that buy on line with no problems. I just dont. Maybe im old school but when I make a deal I want to look at someone instead of tapping on a keyboard.

How about tire age? Suppose you order online, pay for it, and then it shows up as 3 or 4 years old, or even older? You already paid.

If you buy local, you can look at the tire before you pay.

I second that motion.

That logic applies to anything you buy online. Volume distributers have a reputation to protect like anyone else can be much cheaper than local shops. I've bought everything under the sun online and rarely get burned.

That said, I found a local truck tire dealer that had the tire I wanted in stock and gave me a great deal. I also now know of at least one shop to go to when its tire change time for the whole coach.

However just for a spare, why not a good used tire from that same dealer. If you have a flat and a new spare, then you are driving with 1 new and 5 old tires. When you buy 6 new tires and put that one back in storage then it will age out.
