With all the bad press out there want to spread some good news. Went to Discount Tire today For the first time and got some new tires for the sl. Went with 205/65/16 instead of 225/60/15 nervous about look and possible tire rub. Discount had the tires in stock and had them on in 30 minutes and explained the $ 60.00 rebate. Love to save a buck . No i dont work for them just glad to get a deal hope this helps someone looking for tires in the future.

I also have had good luck in Discount Tire. Bought the Bridgestones for the MB there and will go there when the Chrysler needs new tires. Fair price and in and out quickly. Also they do free rotations and flat tire fixes. They earned my loyalty.

I have been buying from discount tire since before most of the men working there were born. They have always been great and gone the extra mile even at a new store.

One time several years ago when the goodyear triple assurances came out I wanted a set for the minivan. Saved like $40 on the set going to another place that had been around for years. Within 2 months hit a pothole destroyed the tire and found out why I keep going back to Discount. Had to buy a new tire, though not from the place I got the first four.

And yes the SL is sporting yokohamas from Discount on her British Pentas.
:D

I used to buy from them, then I moved next door to a guy who runs his own tire shop. I picked up a set of nexens 205/70/14, mounted, balanced and taxes and got change from $250. I've bought 5 sets of tires form him since. No reason to go anywhere else.

I usually go to Discount Tire as well, when I buy new. I don't remember having any issues at all with them, but lately I have been insourcing (is that a word?) rather than outsourcing most of it since getting hassled at Walmart about my choice of a tire application. I mean just how hard can you push a VW Pickup with a 52 HP engine?

I bought a Harbor Freight manual tire changer lashup and bubble balancer and do some of my own, when the need arises.

Nothing quite beats the personal touch.

I had a local gentleman with a shop who did service and sold tires who I had excellent luck with and who I grew to trust completely. I had him take care of our work fleet as well as my personal vehicles for around 15 years.

Sadly he passed away and I doubt I'll ever find anyone equal.
