Well, pre-ice storm, my tire was literally shredded by something on 35. I'm just going to buy all new tires. Can anyone suggest a good place to get tires & have them put on near Uptown/Downtown?

Am I better off ordering from somewhere online and then shipping them to someone to have them replaced or should I order direct from someone?

Suggestions?

Thank you!

I like Ross Tires at the corner of Ross and Greenville. It's not much to look at, but the guys are super nice with good prices. Good luck!

Ditto. I never used the Inwood location but always had good experience (both service and price wise) in many other locations. And they are usually open to a negotiation to a certain degree.

I used the Discount on Inwood when we lived in Uptown and they went out of their way to order my tires. My truck uses a specific tire and they only had two in stock. So they had to order the other two which ended up coming from two different states. They had the complete set ready to mount in 3 days!

I also agree with this. Have bought my last two sets of tires from Discount. Prices are competitive and I always go back for the free tire rotation. I go to the location near the High 5.

One thing to consider if you travel or move a lot, you can find a Discount Tire store almost any where these days. This comes in handy if you need to have a tire replaced under warranty.

One of the things I really like about Discount Tire is that all of their locations use the Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer, which balances the combination of the wheel and tire perfectly under a simulated [Road Force] load applied by the machine to determine the best weight counterbalance method so there is no tire/wheel vibration that can oftentimes transmit a shimmy to the steering wheel when the two-part rotating mass is not balanced properly.

Someone knows their stuff...... I may be biases as I used to work for DTC and my BIL currently has a store in OKC, but they are great. Need your air pressure checked....just pull straight into the first bay of any Discount Tire and stay in your car. They will get you filled up free of charge whether you're a customer or not. Have a flat? Head on over and they will take care of it free of charge, once again if you're a previous costumer or not. They are also great to their employees and as a manager of a "high volume" store, you can make some serious cash after bonus!

Thanks! You might say I am 'particular' about such stuff. Well, maybe all stuff...
