Tire- website-Anyone used it??

Question

Huskie

I found great prices on tires at tiresonline.com, but I can't find any reviews of their business. Has anyone bought anything from them or know of a way to check their business history? I have bought a number of items on line before, but not from this outfit, hate to get fleeced, thanks.

I'm not sure the site you're looking at. I tried finding it myself only got a list of links to other online retailers.

I've bought tires online from Tirerack and I've used the online service from Discount tire and both have been fine. I've found that the best deals are atDiscount tire since they will price match most things.

Buying form Tirerack can be good cause they will drop ship the tires to a list of tire shops they recommend and you can get a deal on shipping and sometimes installation.

Of course you're always gonna get better service if you buy locally so its a double-edged sword.

You may save on tire price but try to get a "whole" picture with regards to price since most local places lump in the cost of mount and balance for a "total price". Once you add in tires, shipping and installation, I've only found online to be a better deal ONCE and only cause I was ordering a large mud tire that nobody would stock.

After pricing out a new set, factoring in the cost for mounting and balancing from a local shop, I found it better to spend the extra $12.50 to get them through my local dealer. LOCAL SERVICE is much better IF you have any problems.

I'll vote for Discount Tire.

Now they fix flats for free, whether it's you, or someone you know.

They've fixed multiple flats for me on my mowers and never even charged me.

Their prices are VERY competitive and rotate for free.

I totally agree with lwnmwnman. I know I pimp DT alot on here, but only because I would send anyone there including my grandma. They've been great to me. I've bought 3 sets of tires there. I've used my road hazard warrenty from them before with no hassle and the prices are great.

If you live north of the metro I feel bad becaus ethey ahven't moved in that direction yet, but if you're nea rthe metro I would consider making it a stop.

If you are buying truck tires you may want to check out 4wheelparts.com. Every once in a while they run a promo with free shipping. I bought 285/70R17 BFG AT's from them last fall when they were running that promo and even though the price per tire was higher at the time than Tire Rack with the free shipping it made the overall cost substantially cheaper. They were cheaper than Discount Tire was at the time too.

Sorry. posted the wrong site, it is onlinetires.com. I can get a set of four 245/75 16's Hankooks 100 bucks cheaper and the firestone destination le's for 80 bucks cheaper than I can get locally. That is figuring in shipping and having them balanced and mounted locally. The only thing not included would be the road hazard--would be rolling the dice there. Any final thoughts, decision time in tomorrow.

Alot of local places will match any advertised price, let them inspect the sale to see if its a scam, they will investigate to see if its a true deal. If it is you are buying them local because they will match the deal! I know ford dealers advertise they will match any advertised price! And I dont think it needs to be a ford either! But I may be wrong!

      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year...

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
