Depends on where you live. I like using tirerack.com. They will ship to your installer locally and have decent prices.

Your Profile says you are in Washington. How about a trip to Les Schwab in Oregon .... no sales tax. We ordered over the phone and requested that all match with a date of mfg. less than 6m. They called when they arrived & we drove to have them installed before our Alaskan trip.

Schwab is a good source for Toyo tires which have a loyal following on any forum I have read. Looking myself for the next set of tires here soon.

Thatís a great idea. Sales tax in Washington is brutal. Thanks!

Depends on what kind of vehicle you are doing the search for. A towable, pick up, car/suv, Class C I just use Tire Rack. Others use Simple Tire. Tire Rack always has a local installer. Simple Tire copies and pastes the Tire Rack installers list if there is none under local contract. I don't think that the Tire Rack discount applies to the Simple tires though. We don't have Schwab or Discount Tires locally.


If buying tires for a Class A - no idea

If you are a fulltimer, consider going to Oregon or one of the states with no sales tax as that can save considerable on the total cost.

Recently took advantage of the FMCA Continental tire program and pleased with the experience and ride.
I've had Michelins before and was not real pleased, especially when I considered the PREMIUM $$$$.

I will only say that if you are seriously considering new tires, DO NOT put it off any longer than necessary. I had a quote on four tires needed to replace the drive axle, 21 days after the quote I called to schedule the install and was informed the tires had increased in price by $43 per tire. Thought maybe he was gouging me so called around and sure enough prices had jumped basically everywhere

If shopping online check out Speedytire, when I was shopping for tires for my motorhome they had some of the best delivered prices.

I checked Speedy Tire's website this evening and I can beat their prices on at least 4 brands of tires, Hankook, Yokohama, Firestone and Continental (via FMCA). They offer brands I've never heard of before so expect those are "off-shore". Cost of shipping to my location is $400, plus the cost of installation.
Doesn't work for me here in NW Oregon.

Ah, when I was shopping with them most of their shipping rates were in the $100-$200 range for 6 tires
