They are not as cheap as Discount Tire, but the service makes up for it.
Our DT is ALWAYS packed, so sometimes it's slow getting in and out, but I've always had excellent service despite a bit of a wait.
When I had my trailer tires mounted by a local shop (local small business), I got prompt and excellent service, and it's closer to home. They will also perform an alignment if needed, which DT will not do. On the one hand, I will try to support a local small business whenever I can (being a small business owner myself, it's important). On the other hand, I like being able to hit a DT just about anywhere, nation wide if I have a problem.
I can say that the local shop will most likely get the first shot at my next set of tires, and I may even have them rotate my TV tires at next oil change because I would like them to check my alignment, so we will see how they do...
