Buying Tires
 
I have rims that I want the tires mounted on, but I want to have the tires delivered to the shop, after I purchase them online. Does anyone know how to get this done? I want to buy them online and then have them delivered to the shop, while I bring the rims. Discount Tire direct?

Both Discount Tire and TireRack offers the option of ordering it online and having it shipped to the installation location. The good part about ordering from TireRack is that you don't have to pay Sales Tax here in TX.

Thanks man for the suggestion. Discount Tire does charge sales tax? Is that because it is in Texas, where as Tirerack is coming from outside of Texas?

Yes Discount has business locations in TX and therefore will charge Taxes. If you order from TireRack, it will be shipped from LA and therefore no Sales Tax.

and all shops will charge you extra (even discount tire, if you order from discount tire direct) to mount and balance tires that are not bought from them, its usually 25+ a tire to get it done at a "mainline" shop.

you can however, find a "bobs tire shop" that will probably do it for less, with no lifetime rotation or balance.

^^I hear nothing but good things about that place!! Also it was only 5bucks to have a tire pulled and I think it was 10 bucks to get a tire mounted. It's pretty standard fee I think.
