Wow, you're going to save a whole $8 and change, $25 or so total. I once tried to save money buying from the Tire Rack and got tires that were ridiculously tough to balance because they were so close to manufacturing tolerances. Tire Rack wouldn't refund my money and I had 7 tires shipped and returned before finding 4 that were usable. They paid the shipping but I had to pay mount/ dismount and balance on all of them to find this out. It's really not worth it for such a small savings. Schwabs service is great and worth a couple more bucks to me.

i do agree that les schwab severely over charges for tires when they need to order them. I asked about some M3 winters and they quoted me a little over 800 for the set, it was like 202 a piece, ridiculous. This is only because they arent toyo tires, they have decent prices on their own products, but anything else it is ridiculous.

btw, m3s in 02-05 wrx stock size are 73 a piece from tire rack now... so ya, kinda ridiculous.

However, i do think that les schwab has wonderful service and is a great place on the whole.

you know that schwab will often price match right?

The one local to me will match subiedude's prices on wheels even.

Schwab is way higher priced than America's tire around here. I don't think you saved enough to make up what you will have to pay some place to mount those though.

Any place that tries to get you to buy tires by giving away frozen beef should be avoided.

The once quoted me 2x Discount Tire's price on Azenis ST-215's.
