Default Where do you buy your tires?

Hey friends.
I need new tires, and I have no good source.
I'm told that Costco is best place to get em.
But I'm not a member, and need to purchase on credit.
Where's the best place, with the best deals?

I drive a 2007 Honda Accord 4-Dr EX V6. I need 4 tires.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

DDB.

I buy mine from TireRack.com and then take them to a local Honda dealership and have them mounted and balanced.

Shipo, do they provide a lifetime rotate/balance contract for 3rd party tires? Seems unlikely.

OP, I've had good results w/ Sam's and Discount Tires (good service).

good luck

Nope, but then again I think lifetime rotate/balance is pretty worthless; I do my own rotations, and in over a million and a half miles of driving, I've never once had a tire come out of balance.

Tire rack.com of course,

or Tread depot . com then install and balance at the Honda Dealer.

FWIW, My Honda Dealer has lower prices than the local tire shops for rotation and balance.

DDB.
You really should consider the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus.
I have them for 3 season tires and I would highly recommend them. They are lightweight and when installed on your Aluminum wheels, they will help you save fuel over other tires.

I've bought a few sets at Discount Tires. Also a set at Sam's. The pluses with these two is they don't do suspension work, so they don't try to sell you replacement suspension bushings. I work with a guy who was a mechanic at a tire place. They had a quota to sell more than just tires. Quit because he was sick of replacing perfectly good parts.

I had tires go out of balance twice. When they were rotated, they always check the balance and put new wights on. Never noticed a problem before.

The last tires I bought were Continental sport/ all season. Tirerack for wheels and tires for my old Audi. I love the Contis! Perform and are very quiet. When I need some for the Honda, I will get the same thing.
