Default Tire prices in metro Denver

Who's got the best deals on tires here in Colorado. I want to get 33's for some rubber OD and then sell my brand new 28's. Discount tire is about $186 for some 33x10.5x15 BFG AT tires.

Default play the game...

All I ever do is call around for the lowest price...then call the closest trusted tire place and ask them to match it since all you really want to do is support a local business (if you can)

Discount will also match internet prices. That's what I did.

I got BFG tires from Discount a little over a year ago. At the same time 4wheel parts warehouse was having their annual event and BFG was offering a rebate. I saved $20 per tire over what I would have gotten with 4WPW and the BFG rebate together.

I've never been able to beat Discount's prices, and with the lifetime free rotations and balancing and the fact that they're nationwide, I feel like I'm covered pretty well.

I've gotten some tires at Barnsley Tire in Boulder ((303) 443-3553)
for less than Discount's quote. Family-run, friendly place. May be
worth a phone call.

Default That's MY preferred place

reality is...Sam and his Family (Barnsley Tire) get all my business. I've paid a tad more, but barely. and he'll try to match when he can, he's an honest guy. I get peace of mind and a friendly, "hello, Shawn, How's the family?"

I love that along with stellar Customer Service.

I went into Barnsley with a slow leak on a tire on my wife's car. They fixed it; never even asked if I bought the tires there and no charge. I'm def' considering them for future tire purchases.

Also, I've found that most indy tire shops will work with TireRack.com. Have the tires shipped to the shop and they install them.
