Best place to buy tires?

I am shopping for some Toyo Open Country MT's in a 265/70R17. I went to the local Les Schwab and they quoted me $1456 for a set of 4 ($321 a tire). I have seen them online for $1047 shipped ($240 a tire from tirecrawler.com)

Anyone used tirecrawler.com before? For a $400 savings, I think it is worth it to ask around. I know Les Schwab will charge me $25 I believe a tire to road force balance each tire but I am still ahead $300.

Does anyone else have a place the prefer to buy tires from?

I found them at this place: http://www.1010tires.com/tire.asp?ti...+Country+A%2fT .

I have never ordered from this site and I don't know how reliable they are. Seems like a good price compared to other sites.

Re: Best place to buy tires?

I just called Les Schwab and they will only price match local tire vendors and not online sites. I am going to have to sleep on it and see if the $300 is worth it to have them shipped to my home and find a way to get them to the store to be mounted.

Re: Best place to buy tires?

I got boned the last time I ordered tires online and had them installed locally. I'd call around to other tire shops in your area and see if they price match online prices. I've found two local to me that do.
