Costco carries a few major brands (Michelin, Bridgestone/Firestone), so you would probably have a good choice of tires. I went to price tires there twice. They didn't have what I was shopping for (Firehawk) in stock, so it probably would've been a special order. Most perf. tires will likely be a special order.

The line was out the door both times that I went, so I just ordered from the Tire Rack. The price I got from Tire Rack was about $50 cheaper per tire compared to my local tire place. I never checked the price at Costco.

I read on another forum about a guy ordering tires from TR, and getting them installed at Costco. He said the savings paid for his annual membership.

costco has the cheapest mounting and balancing costs, it's $4 to mount and $6 to balance (or the other way around i can never remember). when i checked their prices weren't really better than tire rack or discount tire direct, but when that coupon book goes out, usually there's one that $60 off a set of 4 michelin tires. they can get s-03s, re950s, pilot sports, pilot a/s, but yeah as mentioned before they're special order and you're not going to save any money buying from their instead of one of the big mail order places.
