If there are issues with the tires like a bubble or whatever, I'd rather deal the AM dealer than TireRack. I want the AM dealer to own the whole job and product.

Tirerack and just have the dealer install - not too expensive at the end of the day for the extra bit of peace of mind.

I personally go to dealer or independent. Some of the TR installers don't want to touch my special wheels. Also if buying 4 tires, I want the alignment done correctly. In Northern CA, I've used Redwood Tire, they are top notch too.

I bought both my sets from Walmart.com, free shipping to store and cheaper than tirerack.

Now where to have them installed, no clue. First place broke a rim, second scuffed the outside rim pretty bad.

That's why I stick with the Aston Martin dealer for the whole job.

I've done this and have piece of mind that the Tire Rack road hazard warranty is good all over country...

i did this for s BMW and had a problem with tire on a trip and was resolved at a local tire shop.
