I have three vehicles. I purchase tires for my to older vehicles at Discount tire. My new truck has never needed new tires until I hit something on I-10 east close to the San Jacinto river bridge. Put my spare on the truck, and made it home. Went to the discount tire in pearland and purchased a new tire. They put the one new tire on, and put all four tires on my warranty plan, even though I only purchased one. Thats customer service.........

I like NTB as they usually are much faster and the first time I used them they were actually $15 cheaper per tire on some Goodyear wranglers for my wife's Suburban. I also like that I can have the Alignment done at the same time. However, My last visit looking for a tire for my wife's Corola (she refused to spend 100 buck per fill up when gas whent over $3) They did not have the tire, Were to order it, called after 6 days and they had no record of it. Promised to get it and failed again... Asked to talk to manager, not there, told he would contact me next day... Do i need to tell you what happened... Probably will be finding new tire shop...

BTW - Wife found this "Exotic" tire at Dealership for 22 buck cheaper... I was floored...

I've always used Discount Tire. I've never had an NTB nearby, so I've never actually been to one. Discount has always treated me well, including rotating my tires for free several months after the purchase of a new car, so I've never had a reason to go anywhere else.

I have heard good things about NTB from others in my family, though. I would have no problems about going to one if there was one near me.

I like finding places cheaper than Discount, because they will price match and then beat it by 10%.

..........or "Both"

I have a car that has tires on it from Discount and I take that one to Discount. Excellent service. I actually got a notice in the mail awhile back for a valve stem recall on those.

I had to take our Durango to an NTB awhile back. I needed ONE tire and Discount didnt have it in stock, NTB did....so I take our other vehicle to NTB. No probs w/ them either. One just opened out here that's only a bicycle ride distance away so I imagine they'll be getting all my tire business eventually. I can ride my bike home while they work on the cars.

Depends on which one has the best price on the tires I need at the time. Both have done well for me.

I ordered some Goodyear's for my truck and when I went to have them installed the guy comes out and says that someone had installed the last one earlier. They asked if Michelin's would be okay for the same price? I had to contain my excitement because had I been able to afford the Michelin's at the time they would have been my first choice... Needless to say I said yes and I'm pricing the same set now over 100,000 miles later, so far Discount is the cheapest for these tires.

Tire rack is less but I would have to compare install costs now.
