    Default Any Tire Guys from the Chicago Area

    My Toy Hauler seems to need new tires, trying to go on a trip this weekend, but with a triple axle trailer, pretty costly for amybe 2 trips this year.

    Summit Racing is my first choice for tire supplier, then it's tire rack, then Discount Tire, or Suburban Tire. Summit is next day delivery from Ohio, Tire rack is a couple days, The two others is usually same or next day.

    Try these guys:
    Save and Buy Tires Direct @ TiresDirect.Net
    Its Cassidy Tire in Addison, but its their main warehouse. They sell the tires over the net for way cheaper than in the stores. Or try Tire Rack. Had good experiences with both places.

    Keep buying your tires on the web. Soon you will not have a local company that can mount and balance them or fix your flats. All to save $20.

    You must have missed where I said that that website is the main warehouse for a LOCAL tire shop franchise. You can purchase the tires off the web for cheaper than in their stores. Make the purchase on the web, then go in for mount and balance. We're in the Chicagoland area dude, I doubt tire shops are closing the doors because of Tire Rack. Oh, btw, that LOCAL tire shop franchise is a family owned Chicago business that was founded in 1914.

    More like highway robbery, there are plenty of tire shops around, and seem plenty busy. I'll buy what I want, and spend what I want, and give the local alignment shop my business. Mounted and balanced, for $75.00 plus an good look over of the suspension. Online shopping saves me over $700 for my truck, I think the retailers is doing very well.

    Looks like the right LOCAL SHOP to use to buy and mount my tires, thanks.

    You Yankees are.......Never mind. You probably voted for Obama and would not understand. And enjoy the customer service you get when you have a problem.

    These guys saved me a big headache, not to mention a ton of money. They also have an installation center, this was the deal of the day for me. Thanks for the link Dern's!
