    There's no better place to buy tires, as long as you can either handle 
the mounting yourself, or have a local place that'll mount tires you bring 
'em.  I've bought more sets of tires than I can count from them, most 
recently a set of Yokohamas for my wife's Saab a couple weeks ago, but 
before that many sets for various racecars and other cars.  It's actually 
a little disturbing how fast they arrive here in Illinois... I've ordered 
in the afternoon and had the tires on my doorstep the following morning.

    The selection is far better than anything you're liable to find at a 
local shop, and the prices will be cheap enough to make it worthwhile to 
cart your own tires in, usually.  That said, if you don't really care what 
tires you buy as long as they're round and black, you might as well keep 
the guys in the shop happy and buy directly from them.  Some really don't 
like mounting tires bought elsewhere... some don't mind.
