psst.... I just bought 4 tires today from www.walmart.com cheaper than I could find anywhere. Free shipping to local store. I will probably go ahead and have them mounted and balanced there with road warranty. Hard to find somewhere without a walmart. I can rotate them myself.
I can't say I've ever had a problem with discount tire, but they just built a Big O tire within walking distance of my house that seems to be pretty good (I've bought one set of tires and had a couple oil changes so far) so I guess Big o has my business for now because I can drop my car off and walk home take a nap on my couch instead of waiting in the waiting room.
Talk to your local Walmart's tech or some customers before letting them near your vehicle. I knew the guys at ours and still wouldn't let them work on mine. Stripped drain plugs, scratched rims, out of balance or incorrectly installed tires, etc were all complaints I heard from customers. Just FYI.
Also, our local store will not sell you tires if you don't let them mount them for u. Like $12-20 a corner.
A Perpetual Disappointment...
As I mentioned in a previous post, It's even worse than making an appointment at the doctors office.
As far as Tire Rack, find out what the return policy is if you get a defective tire (it does happen).

Well, I'm getting ready to buy my 7th set of tires from them (for the wife's car this time), and with few exceptions, have always found my store here in South Orlando to be very helpful and to run close to on time for appointments. They broke a wheel stud on my truck some time ago, and since I fixed it myself, they credited my account the $75 fee they'd have paid the shop they'd have sent me to for the repair. I was very pleased with that outcome.
Their road hazard warranty pays huge dividends if you have a nail go through the sidewall of a reasonably new tire, and Discount can't repair it. Had that happen to my wife's car, and Discount installed a brand new $225 Michelin tire in its place, no questions asked. All I paid for was the new road hazard certificate on the new tire (~$25). And I'm one of those customers who has Discount rotate and balance the tires on all three of my cars every 5k miles, so I see them regularly. So far so good.

I've been buying tires from them since the 80's and never had any problems. The shop near me has always been great. The corp headquarters is just up the road from me, so that may have something to do with it...
When you rest your steak and your whiskey upon the table you have made, you feel pretty goddamn tall for keeping those treats off the ground.
