Discount, mainly because they are everywhere, including Moab.

Case in point, Kristi was driving her FJC to Moab today. Yeah I know, great idea. Anyway. she ran over a piece of trucker chain and got a flat near Glenwood, which happens to have a Discount. 30 minutes later she was on her way with tire repaired for free.

Decent prices, and on my 100 they matched the online price that Sears had.

I used Discount for years. Tried Tirerack to save a few bucks on my DD Corolla and am regretting it. No free rotations and balancing, no warranty certificates, etc. Discount just makes it too easy.

I have had the best luck with Discount. They've always pricematched or beaten everyone's prices. Their shops are everywhere and they really take care of you WHEN tires get damaged.

Discount FTW. They'll even order in Interco tires and have always price matched anything I've shown them.

Discount is excellent and they almost always meet or beat competitors, and if you're a repeat customer they really go above and beyond. I have card ADD and have put tires on probably 12 different cars in the last 4.5 years, and they know me by first name at several locations. I deviated recently and went with Tirebuyer.com just to try something new, and while I probably saved ~$100 it doesn't include free rotations and stuff like I get with Discount. Shop around for the best price, then go to Discount for a price match is my recommendation.

I've used Discount for 30 years, but have moved away from them for truck tires. The lawyers run the show there now, so they refuse anything that isn't written on the manufacturer's spec sheet. The same outfit that didn't bat an eye at mounting a 16.5" tire on a 9" wheel turned down a $1000 deal for 35x12.50s on stock jeep wheels, which everyone runs. 4WP happily took the deal, and now have a south location, too.

I do still use Discount for my wife's RX tires. That seems to be the kind if business they want.

Discount has seemed to shy away from out of the ordinary. We still use them exclusively and since I'm not doing anything unusual it hasn't been a problem. They saved my bacon in Arizona when I had a flat and a bubble in the carcass that took a plug. One of the shops in Flagstaff took one look and replaced it and the other on the axle (so it matched diameter, these were not new tires) for free.

The Discount at 46th & Wads. A few of the guys there are Toyota fans and attended FJ Summit a few years ago.
