    I purchase mine from Discount Tire just because they have locations all over the country in case something happens to a tire. I haven't had any issues with them and they also price match. They also offer free rotation and balance if you purchase the tires from them.

    Have had 1 bad casing, 1 sunrot, and 1 out of balance, in 15 years.

    Les Schewab. They take care of all the work needed and offer their warranty on top (costs a little more but piece of mind to have to replace punctured tires with no questions asked) if you drive on constructions sites all the time like me :)

    I buy tires from a friend who owns a used car dealership. The dealership is an American Tire Distributor dealer. I buy the tires at cost and throw them some cash for the labor/balance/recycling.

    From a one-off family-run tire store about 6 miles from me, for everything except BFG (they don't carry them/can't get them). For BFG, Discount Tire.

    GCR Tire offers a pretty good corporate discount if you have that at your disposal.

    I've purchased my last few sets of BFGs through Tire Rack. They ship fast and have a nationwide network of installers. The locals who do it here are great. Tire Rack ships directly to them and they take care of the rest.

    I got a guy, I deal with him selling and buying used tires so he hooks me up with new tires at his cost.

    Brother-in-law's family has a tire shop. Hit me up if you're around Atlanta.
