    the online tire store; tirerack.com:
    Has changed, now has brick and mortar store fronts in most areas of the country (7 locations). So you will be paying sales tax along with odd accumulations of local road taxes.

    they still have a low phuck factor and the fastest way to buy tires. They have functional customer reviews on their web site. But now you will likely have to drive to a local warehouse, pay the local taxes but not the shipping.

    -passenger tires ship well; typically $12/tire. Drop ship the tires to a garage to mount & balance.
    -Guess those days are gone.

    I see they redesigned their website, and they have the usual recommended installers, but I don't see that they have retail storefronts. Where did you see that?

    "TIRE RACK LOCATIONS AND RECOMMENDED INSTALLERS

    As you may know, Tire Rack is a mail order company, so we don't have traditional local retail locations where you can shop for our products. However, we do have a handful of distribution centers across the country where we ship our products from, and you can also pick up your order in person. Orders…"

    the Tire Rack store in Denver is located:
    9690 E 40th Av
    Denver 80238

    The Tire Rack has 7 other locations in the US so most likely you will have to pay sales and highway taxes on the tires you buy from them but you will not have to pay shipping.

    the web site software is not completely updated so use caution

    I normally go to Discount Tire. Prices are competitive, and service is fast. Even on busy days, I'm in and out of there in under 90 minutes. Only thing that sucks is that they don't carry too many performance tires in-store. They're either very low on stock, and they have to be transferred from another store. Or they need to be special ordered.

    Costco is also pretty decent. They carry Michelin Pilot Super Sport for pretty cheap. And they frequently have instant rebates.
