Tire Shop

Needing to purchase all four tires for my 2005 C230 Kompressor. Can anyone recommend a shop in the Sacramento/Fair Oaks area that is reasonable w/prices; maybe has some good deals. I feel like when I walk into a tire shop, I'm getting played because I'm a chick, and I don't know a lot about tires, but I know I need to put some good quality tires on my car.

Mikki, if you are a Costco member, just go there.

They will not sell you something that won't work and they don't sell junk. And there's no fiddling around with negotiating or upsells or other such nonsense (I can't stand tire stores for that!!). They also include free rotation and balancing for as long as you own the car and I think they include a road hazard warranty as well.

If you're not a Costco member, go sign up.

Costco is good place if you want high quality tires and don't have exotic sizes.
Other choice is ordering tires at Tire Rack and have them installed at any shop. You can prearrange shipment directly to the shop as well.

I'm a fan of Tire Rack, but you have to work through their network of tire shops -- and some of them are very, very expensive, like $40 to mount and balance EACH tire.

They're certainly worth considering, but you have to have all of the information up front...and you're still dealing with a tire shop at the end of the day.

Its been 2 years, but Tire rack send tires to me and I had shop that I have been using for years mount them at $10 a piece and I gave them pellets for balancing.
Bad part of that arrangement is loosing warranties Costco would give you, but the savings were significant.
