Discount tire online sales? Plus a couple brand questions
« on: July 28, 2017, 03:04:31 PM »
Well didn't think about buying tires online until I was told the tires I wanted today would run 2100 plus tax and etc.

So checked out discount tire. Seems like some great prices. Have you used them? I would love feedback.

Also a couple brands I have never run. I was hoping for some feedback on them.

Cooper and Falken. Both there a/t 3 designs. Both have 50k plus warrentys on them.

I would for sure buy the replacement plan they offer, if I bought them.

Thanks for any feedback.

I run the Cooper AT3 on my truck and am very happy with them. I have a Chev 2500hd.
My boss runs the same exact 10 ply tire on his 1/2 ton and gets 70k a set out of them.

Ive just bought a set of 5 Falken Wildpeak ATW3 in 35X12.50s.  They have a 55,000 warranty.  Should arrive in a few days. I have heard good things about them so I thought I would put them on the kids Jeep and see how they hold out.  I am partial to BF Goodrich AT tires.  But those I will put on my truck.

Been dealing with Disscount for alot of years. Always good service. Put the Cooper AT on the suburban. Not sure how many miles on them but wearing good. Bought for 50,000 mile warranty as well. They have sales usually on the big three day weekends of the year.

Cooper tire is an American company that makes lots of private label tires for names like Les Schwab and Big O for certain sizes. FALKEN is a Sumitomo Brand based out of Japan.

I don't have personal experience with either tire.

Tires are application specific for best performance. It's always difficult to make a good comment with no info.
Tire size rig what the use of the rig etc are all important information.

Prices seem to vary wildly depending on the size. I've seen mounted sets of tires on wheels of a more common size for the same price as just the Rubber for an 18" wheel pickup tire. Your stock spare tire is often the most affordable size your rig will fit.

Tires require service if you order them online. Either you have to mount them yourself, which can be expensive if you screw up with the TPMS gear most new rigs have, or take them some place. And most tire shops will send you packing  if you show up with online bought tires. Free flat repairs ,rotations and such are paid for though new tire sales so don't expect someone to take care of the competitors tires.

You could have them mounted up at a used tire shop or one of the online preferred installers, but I don't know anyone who has done that.

Sweet thanks all. That's the kind of info I am looking for. Looking like I will grab the coopers from all the great feedback from you guys.
 
special T  that is indeed my case. I can buy a new set of 17" wheels and tires for way less then just buying the tires to fit the blasted 20" wheels that are on this bighorn edition dodge.

If I grab a set of 17" wheels new from schwabs they will mount them up any tires that I bring in to go onto the new wheel is my understanding. Plus all the guys in here get killer gun deals so they don't want to send me packing :chuckle: No more gun deals :chuckle:

Check walmart (unless you don't like walmart) but I price compared locally and on-line and they were cheaper by a couple hundred bucks (yes, evendors compared to discount tire). I was comparing the cooper stt pros size 170/70-17.

Im buying tires from tirebuyer.com this week, free shipping to their installers, Firestone is one of their installers, they have the cheapest rates I can find after installation.

Im trying to decide on the St Maxx by Cooper and the falken wildpeak At3.

Both are right about 1000$ for 4 in a 295/70r18, or equivalent size.

I did take a look they were pretty close just a little more at walmart.


Looks like they have one of the sets of wheels I was looking at to. So if I am reading things right they will mount and balance for free. If I buy wheels and tires at the same time and ship to my house for free.

Ford dealer beat their price for me so I bought a set of 17" KMOs for my dog truck last fall. $180 each, E rated. Bought the KM2's for $190 ea for my F-350. Mount balance free and had an oil change for $100 at same time.

Evergreen Ford happy Gilmore?

They had pretty decent prices on tires when I bought my truck, but didn't have any on hand, and I didn't want to spend the night waiting for them to get em. I sure won't be paying scwabs pricing for their supposed customer service lol

I called them, told them what I wanted and they had them in two days.

Schwab finally gave me credit for the last busted wheel. Applied it to my car trailer tires i did on Monday. Took them till Wednesday afternoon to get done. Stupid expensive d rated crap tires.

I printed out good onlone prices on some quality cooper and took it to discount who matched the price.
I would recommend both cooper tires and Discount.

There is one down in Vancouver. I have to return the wifes lease in a few weeks so I am going to give them a call and see if they can have them there and all ready to put on for me. The fuel wheels I want are special order so not sure how long that will take. So going to get the skinny but for sure looking like I will give them a shot.

There is the store "Discount Tire" over here on the west side and it's super popular. Good service, good prices, etc. Then there is an online retailer called discount tire online or something like that and they are not one in the same. Just FYI there. As far as the tires themselves go, you've gotten lots of good advice. Discount Tire does not do alignments which is always recommended when you purchase new tires. Also understand that a 50k mile warranty only means the tires are warranted against defect for 50k miles. Normal wear is not a defect. Bulges in sidewall is not a manufacturers defect. Tires are hardly ever replaced under a warranty. Road hazard warranty is probably something worth having. That will cover a lot more.

Ford has a low price guarantee on tires. If it's a tire we sell, bring us a printed estimate from somewhere else and we'll beat it. There should never be any question about this at any ford dealer. Ford reimburses the difference to the dealer. You have to be comparing apples to apples. That's the only thing.

Pretty much any ford dealer should be able to have whatever tires they sell overnight. There are tire depots everywhere. 3 on the west side alone.

Yeah I use Discount tire here locally for all my rigs now.  They are good about matching pricing too usually.  There is a discounttiredirect.com that is associated with them and another Co that is not. 

What I do is look around and find online store that has tires I want at the best price and print out the pricing, I put them in cart and get the to my door price.  If you go to discount with just the tire price and no shipping they will push back (as expected) countering about installation, shipping ,etc.  Print out the online warranty too.  Then just go in and say you are interested in buying a set and hoping they can do something/match the price.  Last full set for my STSV they matched the price for the tires for me and they cut $ of lifetime warranties in half to match the online warranty.  I was out the door for $<900 for Continental DW with lifetime warranties, mounted balanced and out the door.  They did similar for the KO2's I put on back of the suburban last year.
