New to site..glad to find it. It's a great resource. Went to the local tire dealer in my area (Hibdon's) to buy 4 Yokohama Avid Touring tires, 225/60r16 which were highly rated at the Tire Rack site. Locally they wanted $107 a piece plus $60 to mount, balance..etc all 4 tires. Tire Rack wanted $50 a piece plus $36 to ship...total $236. Great deal I say! Yes and No...Hibdon's tires is owned or affiliated with the Tires Plus chain, who will sell me the tires for $55 a piece off the Internet and ship them free of charge to my local Hibdon's dealer who wanted $107 a piece.

Now if this sounds confusing, it is. The local dealer can't sell the tires to me for less than $107 a piece, BUT...I can pick up the phone and order them from the web site for $55 and have them delivered to the same dealer who will then mount them for me...
Bottom line I guess is that I save

Great deal, sure does pay to shop around! I've heard those are very good tires too.
