Awesome!! I ordered some Kuhmo Ecstas from them about a month ago, and got them with 24 hours. Their service is second to none.

Tirerack = the best. I've been buying tires from them since I could drive. Thumbs up to them.
Speaking of which, as soon as it gets warm i might need some summer tires

Just ordered some direzza's from them, ready to be picked up within the hour. Now that is what I call speedy service (and the benefit of living near the dis. center)

lol No, you aren't...it's awful isn't it?

I've been a TireRack customer for years. Excellent products and selection with customer service that's tough to beat. Truly a stand-up company.

Kudos to Tire Rack....I went to a local Les Schwab's and asked about a 16" snow tire pkg. They said that a 16" rim would not fit on my 2008 Gti due to the big brakes, said that i had to buy their 17" rims for $200 each. I then ordered a 16" snow tire pkg from Tire Rack..recieved..installed at same Les Schwab's, no problem!!

Hail Tire Rack!

Just bought my "07 fsi in January and among my first acts was to turn to The Tire Rack for my baby's new shoes (the Toyo's had to go...LOUD!!!!)
I've been buying tires from them since 1992 and wouldn't go anywhere else. Their tech support and customer service will make you a dedicated customer.
BTW, My new Goodyear Eagle GT's (marked down from list, cause they clear out tires before they can age which no other tire dealers do...) just rock. They are all season but bite like a summer tire, tread water like a rain tire and are ultra quiet at any speed. I just love 'em! Installed and high speed balanced at "Tires Plus" an authorized Tire Rack installer. I had them shipped there as well.
They also sell the highest quality wheels and brake systems.
