    I would go to Discount Tire HANDS down but there is not one near me. I found a set of 4 tires on their discounttiredirect.com website at a good price but they are currently out of stock. I need to have the tires in hand at a good price by next weekend,

    I refuse to overpay a local mechanic to install them for me so I'm taking them to my uncle who is a mechanic 3 hours away who will do it for free for me.

    Are there any other websites out there I can find good priced tires?

    That's ridiculous, you can get four tires balanced and mounted for +/-$40. Probably minus. Other than making a trip to see a family member, it would be a COMPLETE waste of time and gas to drive three hours to get it done for free.

    I bought my last set on Discounttiredirect.com Although there is a DT about 40 min away from me.

    Well I didn't mention it but we typically make the trip down there to see family there once every 2 months and its been over 2 months since we last went... we're due to go down there anyways so...

    And the cheapest I could find for a place to balance/mount 4 tires was Walmart for $56.

    C'mon brah, don't go visit your uncle and then put him to work. That's a sure way for family members to turn the lights off when they see you coming. On the contrary, if you come bearing gifts you'll more than likely end up being a benefactor in his will...just saying...;)

    River Oaks Goodyear on Westheimer near Weslayan.

    GREAT SERVICE, which outweighs the little more I will pay as compared to another place. :eek:
