After many years of buying tires in the Charlotte area, I don't seek out the bottom dollar places anymore. I've had too many issues with out of balanced, and out of round tires. Seems that the bad tires end up in these places and when you complain, they blame the car. It's a big hassle.

You are driving a luxury SUV with high end almost sports like road specs. The right tires, which hold these beasts to the road yet give good ride and handling, are not going to be cheap. You got to pay to play.

I've had good luck with Griffin Brothers.

I just had to replace my tires on my 06 Acura TL.

I was a little shocked that only after 2.5 years and 15k miles that the Firestones were already showing cords!

Hendrick Acura quoted me a little under $800 to replace all 4 w/ factory Michelin tires.

I ended up going to Tread Quarters on Monroe Road and purchased Michelins that were a little better than the factory tires. So I spent more there.

I've also read some good reviews about Tirerack.com. I may be willing to check them out next time I need tires.

What about Discount Tire? I've always had good experiences with them throughout the years.

The only time I ever bought tires from Discount Tire had to be replaced in less than 8 months.

I wouldn't put them on a MDX.

I have purchased a number of tires from Discount and had good experiences. I never had good experiences with stock tires that came with my new vehicles.
