Better prices than TireRack?

Hey Folks, currently out pricing some more tires for my new dually rims and looking to see if I can find the best price I can on the new set of 4 for the rear end.

Alot of folks have mentioned tirerack.com in the past, but so far, the price difference when the shipping costs are counted in negates the value of buying from tire rack as one still has the additional cost of mounting/balancing. Right now, for buying online, unless the price is under a $100 a tire, its still cheaper to go and buy locally with the mounting/balancing included.

So, at this point, I'm curious if anyone is familiar with any other places to shop around for truck tires online?

That's been my experience also. By the time you get the tires shipped and then installed, the "discount price' largely evaporates. It will be cheaper than a tire dealer that only sells at list price, but if you shop around you can nearly always get a better deal than that at some local tire shop.
