I see you're also from SD. Well, I have a spare of 235's laying around in my garage. 2 Falken FK452 235/35R19 and I also have 2 Pirellis Pzero Rosso 245/35R19. Still a lot of tread left on both sets. PM me if you're interested. I live in UTC and also attend UCSD.

yup, but my total still ended up being less or the same as ordering it and getting it installed seperately

America's Tire is discounttiredirect.com's brick and mortar component, and I think the stores are called Discount Tire in other parts of the country. You can always order from the web site and have the tires shipped to the store. Their shipping is usually free. Alternatively, the physical store will match the price of the web store, but you do have to pay sales tax. The store local to me (Livermore) provides excellent service, and I know my buddy Keith (E34 540i) has been happily doing business with their Dublin store for years.

Default Re: Where do you bay area people get tires?

I'm also curious as to which Wheel Works it is.
There's one on Fremont, one on Albrae, and one on Newark, but that one's technically in Newark.

They don't have the greatest reviews on Yelp, but if you guys recommend them, then I trust your opinions.
