    Do you know best place to get tires?

    Yes - will keep them in mind, do you know best place to get tires. I don't need help with mounting and balancing.

    I've used tirerack in the past but they seem to lately have the tires either back ordered or special order.

    Curry's offers tires at $10 over cost, competitive with Tire Rack and Costco.

    Curry's frequently gets repair parts from Olympus Import Parts (various locations in VA - http://www.forparts.com/locations.asp).
    Curry's as their own tire supplier/warehouse in the DC area, so you can save over Tire Rack's shipping charge. They are Tire Rack Price Pledge Plus Recommended installers. Get prices from Costco & Tire Rack and see if Curry's can match, and be sure to request your club discount!

    Virginia Tire and Auto will match Tire Rack prices (including shipping). I replaced the Michelins RF on my 335i and got matching pricing.

    Radial Tire is also an excellent choice. I purchased a set of Toyo RA1 Proxes from them for my E36 and they delivered to my local shop for free.

    I suggest Radial Tire. Paul (owner) has been a long time support of the NCCBMWCCA. He will match / beat most prices and give you the recommendations and advice needed.
