Anyone ever use tires-easy.com for tires?


Their price shows about $70 cheaper per tire than anywhere, thats where my skeptability comes in.

quit messing around online and support your local tire shop. you have a local Discount Tire? if so, we'll price match if it's legit.

edit- just saw your location. go to the Round Lake Beach store. they'll take care of you.

Discount will price match internet pricing?

Discount Tire doesn't sell the brand i'm after.

And the discount tire in Round lake is full of a bunch of rude fuckwits that refused to install "non factory sized" tires.
And generally acted like they were going out of their way trying to work up a price quote, you know, their job.


I've given tons of money to discount tires over the years. But never that one.

There's another local tire shop here that has gotten 95% of my business the last 13 years, but they as well can't get the brand i want.

Fuck discount and belle. I swore by discount for many years till they started up with their bs policies.
Last year discount put me over to the point I will never deal with them again. Their loss.

sorry to hear that. that store does have a new manager now so hopefully they will turn it around.

and yes, we will match any prices

Discount in Chesterfield must have a brain washed manager too. "If it doesn't make us a profit tell them one of our policies to piss them off till they leave"

x3 on avoiding discount and belle. I have tried most of the different branches in my area and all I ended up with was a broken shifter in my bmw (belle) tires that had a bad belt and 4.5 hour wait (discount) and just plain rude service people everywhere. I have a little mom and pop I use now and I am in and out in 15 minutes for a complete set of tires. Yeah try to get that at a discount tire.

Plus with tireracks distribution only 30 miles away why bother with the higher prices and frustration of chain stores.

I've never had an issue with either and continue to use them. I did walk out on discount once because the guy insisted to know what vehicle I was putting the lug nuts on that I was buying. I tried telling him it didn't matter because the vehicle had aftermarket axles. He didn't get it. So I went across the street to Belle.

Service at both has always been good. They help me with any tire I drop off for repair and have always been courteous.

Maybe you guys would have better luck if you didn't use the gl4x4 or pirate attitude.

discount tried to deny me a warranty on a tire because they were too wide for the rim (285s on my 2500hd which i guess has a stupid narrow rim..) even though they originally installed them on both of my identical trucks. kept saying the computer wouldn't let them and said i had to buy different tires or new wheels. had to go to another location and got the same runaround for a bit before they covered it.

I just can't handle the sales pitch they push and how they treat you like a complete idiot. the shit i have overheard them saying to people is ridiculous.

Support your local .........

I hear it all the time, support your local dirt bike store. "We can order that and have it for you on friday" Great, I could have down that at home.

Support your local bike shop. "We can have one for you by next tuesday"

Support your local Tire Store. "We don't carry that brand"

Support your local hardware store. "That's a special order item"

Support your local off road retail shop. "Sure we have that for triple the price of any online mail order options you may have considered"

I'd love to support my local "anything" if they carried the items customer's wanted/needed, or could provide some technical support, or they could provide some service in reasonable cost and time......

I have never had any type of attitude with any tire store and try to be patient. But when you try and tell me the shifter was hanging out of the bottom of the car when I brought it in I tend to get a little upset when I know it was 100% normal when I handed the keys over.


Agree 100% on the support local band wagon. But you try and find parts for a 1958 willy locally or a 1968 Mack. They all just look at you like you have a unicorn standing behind you.

Rockauto.com or summitracing.com I have the part in my shop usually next day. I have all but given up on paying more and shipping in addition to waiting 3 days for the "store" to get it in with their next shipment.

End ranting.

Tires-easy seems to have decent prices but the shipping is rather high from what I have seen.

I don't consider Discount tire my local shop anyway, they might be franchised/local owned but it is all corporate policy, corporate attitude. My local shop would be the family owned BP station in town that still has a service center, and they can get me tires for nearly half of other places while still supporting the community.

I haven't had the best customer service lately at the larger places either lately though. Hell Kan Rock made me wait 3 hours in the parking lot to get a simple patch done, and I took it off the car even.

Still all owned by Bruce Halle, which is why he has 4.4 billion dollars.

When I worked at discount tire, alot of the sales guys had an attitude that the customers needed to be loyal to the store...
