I buy mine locally, but a few places that sell them online:

http://www.edgeracing.com
http://www.discounttiredirect.com
http://www.vulcantire.com

The prices are all fairly similar, note that some places include shipping in the listed prices.

I've bought all my tires from TireRack. No Falkens thought. I love the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S.

I'll put in a good word for TireRack too.

Delivery from tirerack to my home has always been so quick it surprises me. Plus, a really good tirerack recommended installer/subaru mechanic is only 10 backroad miles away.

Those 2 things are important to me.

Other shops have given me grief when I bring them a "tough" tire like SO-3s. When they need 4 guys to put a tire on a rim it kind of scares me.

Yeah Tire Rack has been great for my family and I. I have ordered from them 3 seperate times and each time was smooth and my tires were at my door 2 days later by UPS.

Nothing wrong with the Tire Rack, but he's asking for the best place to buy Falken tires, and they don't carry those.

I've gotten every set of tires I've purchased since the mid 90's (at least 10 sets) from Tire Rack and have always been happy with their service but for my next set I'm looking at Toyo Proxes tires so I guess I'll have to try someone else.

I've read good things about edgeracing.com....good luck!

For those not paying attention, although Tire Rack is a great company that carries a great selection, the TireRack do NOT carry Falkens. Tire Rack is assuredly the best when it comes to almost any other tire in the market today.

So.. no more TireRack posts as it will not help the original poster.

TheWRX has listed a good selection of companies that carry Falkens.

(Dammit... when is TireRack going to get Falkens... they'd clean house... but competition is a good thing, right?)
