you can do entire transaction online even schedule an appointment to install at any of the GY stores

I am buying tomorrow the Endurance Load Range E for my boat trailer from Discount Tire. These tires replace "Grand Ride" load range "D" tires, which I may move my TT. The TT only have OEM load range "C" tires.
I thought the price at Discount Tire was good.

Signature line shows op has a Georgetown Motorhome. I believe the Goodyear Endurance is a trailer tire.
I've used Costco and Tirerack.com. At a minimum, you can get a reference price that way. I think Tirerack has most popular brands.

I have used discount tire online for my last HD truck tire purchase....they also stock many popular trailer tires at good prices including Goodyear and maxxis brands. This weekend they are doing 100 off a set of four in the form of a gift card.

I priced around for some time. I wanted Goodyear Endurance RSA ULT, but the places that could install them were too far from me or wanted to high of a price.
I priced Goodyear, Hankook AH-35, Sanyo, M-143, and a Yokohama tire but couldn't find the 16 ply, H load range tire in the Yokohama tire.
Several shops said they could put the tires on, but after visiting the shops I wasn't sure they could do the job. I also needed a safety inspection and to have my front bearings repacked.
I got the best price on the Goodyear tires from the local Ford Dealer, but they couldn't lift the Motorhome to change the tires or do the work. An over the road Trucking repair shop that I have used before gave me a good price on the Hankook tires so the MH is in the shop right now having the work done and tires installed.

Also asked about the code date before having them installed. Don't let them install tires that are very old.

When I bought new tires for my 5'ver a couple of months back I was going to buy tires from one of the online retailers...

Problem I ran into was that most of the tire shops in Denver wouldn't allow me to have them shipped there and also refused to mount tires that they didn't sell.

And the ones that would let me do this I probably wouldn't let them touch my RV!

I think that this is going to start happening more and more as local shops are loosing their business to the internet.

Maybe what we'll see next is Amazon tire stores...

I just used Sam's Club to do my Goodyear Endurance tires last month. They were a dollar more per tire than buying direct from Goodyear and even had the $80 off per 4 tires offered through Goodyear directly. 5 tires arrived in less than 24 hours. Pulled my wheels off, dropped them off, shopped and ate a pizza with my daughter in the store and they were done in about an hour with steel valve stems installed. Happy camper (pun intended).

I have an acquaintance who says he saved $600.00 on a set of tires for his MH with a discount offered to FMCA members. I believe they were Michelins. Might be worth looking into. YMMV.

Regardless of where you buy your new tires, don't let just anybody handle the removal and re-installation of your wheels. High volume tire shops rarely deal with travel trailers and might not be familiar with proper jacking techniques. A miss-placed jack could easily bend an axle or cause other damage. When I had my new tires installed I pulled the wheels off myself and tossed them in the back of my truck. Fortunately I had enough heavy duty jack stands supporting the frame to do the job safely, this is definitely not something you want to do without the right knowledge or equipment.
Regardless of where you go, just make sure the technicians know what they're doing.
