go on tirerack and look at their installer page. There are normally reviews and prices for install. Then you can either order the tires from tire rack or buy them from the place.

Ditto for around Syracuse as well.

One thing to keep in mind while shopping is Dunn'* prices are the "Out the Door" price.
Mounting, Balance, taxes, and Road Hazard warranty are all included.

I did have a peak at the installers in the area and read the reviews, some of them were very conflicting, that'* why I was interested to hear the opinions of the local guys.

I think I'll have to cal some of these guys and figure it out.

Thanks for the input guys

Cheers,

I went to Sam'* club since I was just looking for good Daily driver tires. Got a cheap tire with good wear. I think it was something like $72/tire total. We've bought 3+ sets there so far, and they have all lasted a good long time.

Would anybody be kind enough to have tires delivered to their house from Tirerack then I would come down and pick them up?

Bridgestone tires are double the price in my neck of the woods

Cheers,
you should see if ryan can have them delivered to his house. Then you can come down during NYBF and have them installed.

If he wont, I should be able to have them delivered to my appartment.
