    Default Cheap Website or Place for tires?

    My bfg's are starting to get very low and I need to go ahead and buy another set of tires. Anybody know a good website or a good store that I can get a set for a good deal because I'm a little low on cash as I'm 16 with a low paying job. Thanks

    tirerack.com or you might just wanna check around your area for shops. Cuz sometimes by the time you order from tirerack, wait for them to get here... pay for the mount and balance. You could have went to a decent shop and got it all done for about the same price(maybe a lil more) but have it done in one day.

    whatever you do, do not go cheap on your tires. buy quality tires, otherwise you will be spending more money to replace the tires sooner than you should. And low quality tires are prone to accidents. But check out your local Sam's Club, they are pretty cheap and road hazard all their tires.

    Sam's club - as mentioned, Walmart if they do your size. One problem you may have with some of the bigger shops is that they will only replace all four tires at once, and only two sizes bigger than stock, if that. Tires are competitive, especially BFGs. You might do just as well at a smaller shop, and they might be more flexible as far as two at a time, oversize, etc.

    I have never ordered tires online. By the time you pay the shipping, wait, and then feel like a heel when you take them in to be mounted. Just to save a couple bucks is not worth it to me. Plus if you have a problem, the same guy sold them and mounted them.

    I have ordered a set of wheels and tires from www.discountedwheelwarehouse.com and I was more than happy with them. The tires were Falken 285/60/18 and I put 70000 miles on them.

    Good Luck!

    Costco is running the $70 off special again so you might want to check it out.
