needing tires

Where is the best (and cheapest) place to buy tires and do they need to be the tires recommended by the manufacturer?

Personally I would shop around on the Internet. There are a number of places that offer free shipping. You can get them mounted locally for a modest fee. I usally have it done at Walmart. This is the only way I have bought tires over the past 6 or 8 years. Pricing can't be beat doing it this way compared to my local tire shops from what I have found. You might try Discount Tire, E-Trailer. There are alot to choose from. Just do a search for the size you are looking for and compare prices. Ebay is another option I have used.

What type of vehicle are you asking for. Towable or Motorized and what size vehicle? It will make a difference if you buy on line. Finding someone to mount them may be tougher for a motorhome than a trailer.

Everyday types of tires can often be "well bought" at Sam's Club, Walmart, etc. The more expensive tires can often be best bought at a place like The Tire Rack. I've purchased LOTS of tires from The Tire Rack.

How does The Tire Rack handle blow outs on fairly new tires?

Best Regards,

Best Regards,
This is the verbage on their website. Never had a tire failure so no personal experience.

"Merchandise covered by a manufacturer's warranty is sold with the warranty by the manufacturer extended to the purchaser. We will be happy to assist in obtaining fulfillment of a manufacturer's warranty. Specific tire information is available on each tire model’s product page via a “Warranty” link. Find your tire by brand here.

Other than applicable manufacturers' warranties, there are no warranties, express or implied, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose."

when I called tire rack they said the new Goodyear Marathons have no real warranty unless its a flaw. Try shipping bits and pieces of the tire after it gets tore up back to them to determine the flaw.
All Good years are listed as a CH CHina tire.

After 2000 miles from factory to delivery I am looking at having to replace all 5 of my bias ply tires due to uneven wear.

If anyone has any suggestions other than looking on ebay... I would like to hear them please..
