Ebay is definitely your best bet in my opinion.

I've always ordered my tires from Tire Rack.  I like they're customer service and quick shipping.  Always good experiences with them.

Never been a fan of the physical stores but I've always loved the direct site. Good price and customer service is great. Gave me the hookup when I got a nail in the sidewall of my 2 week old tire, didn't even use my road hazard.

hhmm, guess I'm old school. I drive down to the industrial area and buy directly from a warehouse, distributor to tire stores, wholesale, cash.  I like the smell of new tires in the place :lol:
