    Re: Tire Shop Recommendations Ames

    Not really answering your question, but I have bought my last several sets of tires off of tirerack.com. They have a great guide to help you select the right tires and they will ship them to a local installer who will call you when it's time to come in.

    I've saved a bunch of money over going to a local shop and had great experiences.

    I have always had great luck with Big 8 Tyre in Nevada.

    Not the cheapest place out there but great service and really knowledgeable about tires.

    If you are a member of Sam's Club, they have been the cheapest I have found unless you go the Tirerack.com route.

    Freedom Tire on Lincoln Way always take good care of us. And they are an official Goodyear dealer so their warranties and service agreements are useful nearly anywhere.

    Re: Tire Shop Recommendations Ames

    I just got new tires on my Mazda 6... checked around since they are low-profile and not really stock. I found the best price at Trickle's Tire and Automotive. Plus, they're locally owned.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Tire Shop Recommendations Ames

    I've been happy with En-Tire in Ames and Farley's Wholesale Tire in Boone. Never got tires at Magic Muffler, but always good experiences otherwise so definitely wouldn't be afraid of them, either.

    Re: Tire Shop Recommendations Ames

    I just got some new tires for my truck off tirebuyer.com. They were $100 cheaper than tirerack.com and $200 less than any local shop. They also delivered them for free to the shop the next day.

    I think I'll try Magic Muffler, I've gone there for other repairs before and they had good service for those repairs.

    4th for Big 8 Tyre. Great honest people plus as mentioned BIG Cyclone fans. I only wished I lived closer to be able to use them.
