I need to buy 2 new front tires for my Nissan Altima size 205/65/16, I need affordable tires and I cannot find any for less than $125 a tire

Are there any good tire shops in this town where I could get two new tires. I wont do business with Discount or Big rip"O"ff Tires and Wal-Mart does not carry my size

Eh, well you ruled them out already but I love Discount. Tires are marked up at such a phenomenal rate that shops will always match prices.

My tactic is to pick the tire I want, get a starting price from Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels, then negotiate from there. I negotiate over the phone between a few shops before I drive in for the final haggle.

The big boys might have more negotiation room than the smaller guys. Either way, I will go with whomever has the best deal installed. The actual installation of a tire to the rim and counterweights doesn't take much skill (as long as they use equipment from the last decade) so I don't sweat that much.

The prices from that site are pretty much the same that Discount and Big rip Off stated. My car has pricey tires, seems like I'm screwed either way, maybe I'll check out one of those Mexican used tire shops along Rancho and see what they have

The tirerack.com stuff starts at $83 per tire in your size (linked). You should be able to get that plus install for less than $125 a tire, right? If you are negotiating they will probably cover the recycling fee too.

I have a Costco card, but they have always been higher priced (IMO) and unable to negotiate prices.

The cheapest they advertise online in his size is $140 per tire plus installation (link). They don't carry generic tires, so you will only get brand name stuff here (not the cheap stuff).

Costco without a doubt. Thinking to the future. You have a lifetime guarantee on your tires. That means every time you need to get your tire fixed/patched...it's free. Also they will rotate and balance your tires for free whenever you feel like it.

Whenever my tires seem too low I pull up in front and they fill them for me.

So worth it...the membership is worth it just for the service you get with your tires.

I also almost always go to Costco.

That said, Discount Tire will patch any tire for free, whether you purchased from them or not.
