Thanks for the information. It is just what I figured. One other related 
question is with warranty replacements. Has anyone had any problems 
getting defective tires replaced?

I've been using Discount Tire for many years. They are more expensive 
that Tirerack, but they are almost everywhere and I've had good luck 
with their replacement policies.

A couple months ago I needed a set of Yokohama tires for my Honda CR-V. 
Tire rack had them for $109, plus shipping. Discount wanted $129 plus 
shipping (they were not a stocked size). I went with Discount because of 
the warranty, but for the $80 it might have been better to go with Tirerack.

One thing I found is that with new vehicles with TPS, the tire mounting 
will require the replacement of the seals on the stem. This runs $10-$20 
per tire. After tax, seals, mounting, balancing, road hazard 
replacement, out the door the $520 worth of tires cost $700! This was a 
bit more than I had expected. It seems that Discount Tire has started 
charging for things they used to throw in at no charge. Next time I need 
tires I will look closer at Tirerack!
