With winter coming I decided to get rid of the tires of death - the stock HPs, and replace them. So, thanks to Tire Rack and Wayne at Latham Auto World in Ogdensburg NY, 4 new Goodyear Wrangler all-terrains, slick as could be.

Tire Rack got the tires there the next day, and Latham got them installed with balancing in less than the quoted time. Nothing but good feelings for both.

The Canadian Border Services Agency, otoh.....I declared the tires, paid the tax on them ($115), and they still inspected my vehicle. They didn't find anything else, but seriously?

All in all, though, I still saved several hundred dollars over buying the tires locally.

Nice tires and quite a savings. I have been curious about Tire Rack.

I purchased a set of Mags from them, they shipped them and everything was in the shipping price, I don't remember paying anything extra when they came in. After installation I found one rim really hard to get balanced, so I call them, the sent me a new rim. Now I have a spare rim. Great service and the pricing is pretty well the same with other Internet Mass merchants.

I have nothing but good things to say about Tire Rack. This is the first time I've used them, and I was rather hesitant. Not any more.

I checked around, and checked out their affiliated installers in the area first (using other resources than Tire Rack). Latham seemed like the best bet for me, so I called and confirmed that they'd do it (this was last Thursday). No problem, and we booked the appointment. Then I ordered the tires online...around 9AM. At 1:30 I had confirmation from the rack that the tires had shipped. They were delivered Friday, no problems.

So I showed up for the installation today, early, and in 5 minutes the truck was up on the rack, and the job was underway. In less than an hour later I was gone, the tires are running smoother than the HPs, they seem quieter, too which I didn't expect. So far, so good.

And $225 per tire seems like a good price. All in, taxes, shipping and installation it was around $1300 including the Canadian taxes, lunch, and a tank of cheap gas (gas here in my Canadian town is the cheapest around Ontario I've found, and regular is $4.389 a US gallon). So, I'm happy now, and with the AT tread I should be doing better on the snow than last year.

Ogdensburg brings back memories when I went to school at SUNY Canton. I drove across the boarder many times on Friday nights.

I purchased one set through Tire Rack and had them delivered to my house and then took them to the shop for mounting and balancing. It was cheaper this way then going locally for the same tire. The second set (different vehicle) I went through a big box warehouse store and had issues with the whole process. Next time I need tires I will go through Tire Rack however the tires I have now should last me many more years.

Thanks for the info, i did not know they would ship direct to an installation shop in the states for you. I agree that tire rack have some great pricing but I was always concerned about the shipping cross border.

A friend had snow tires and rims shipped to Ottawa by Tire Rack....the service charges from UPS were only about another $100 or so. He had them shipped to his work, no problem and only added 1 day to the process.
