Buying tires: Do you go online, or in person?
I know that for the majority of people, either way you have to eventually deal with a real person in order to get your tires mounted (oh, the horror). I'm wondering how many people go online to order/buy their tires, though.
Recently I was part of a discussion regarding why labor rates and prices for little things at tire/brake shops are increasing, and one point made was that people buying tires online are forcing the shops to make their money elsewhere/in other ways. For those of you who, like me, have bought tires online, does this point change your perspective at all?
