Last time I got tires I got them mail order at the
Tire Rack. The tires were a good deal and they came in very fast. However, I found out that I had to pay extra for the installation because I bought them mail order. I am good about maintenance on my car and drive a lot for my job (20,000) miles per year.Every time I had my tires repaired I was charged $17-25 (3 times ). Everytime I had the tires rotated and balanced cost me $40-70.
So figured it hadn't saved me any money and was a heck of a lot more trouble to haul them around and get them put on.
I did a lot of research online and decided one the tires that I wanted. I shopped every tire dealer in Seattle. At Affordable Tire and Brake I was very pleased with the price; and very surprised at the quality of the service putting the tires on. They really acted like they appreciated my business and enjoyed their jobs. I definately will be back.
