Why are the prices different between the two web sites?
DTD has cheaper "repair certificates" and charges for valve stems and tire is $152
DT charges more for the "repair certificates" and has "free" valve stems and "lifetime rotations" tires $165

Do I really "need" valve stems since I have TPM's,aren't they part of the valve stem anyway?

Doesn't it have to be "equal product/service" offer?

Ive done it 3-4 times.

Print out the online price. Make sure the URL is on the printed sheet. Bring it to the manager and he will match it.

Ive never heard of any discount not price matching, but if they give you any hassle, drive 5 miles to the next one and repeat.... lol

Yea you should be able to. As long they can see that it is an authentic offer that they have to match.

I'm also thinking it's not even the competition...it's their own company. So to keep your business I'd hope they honor it.

Oh I've found the tires for $135 each at tire rack, I was originally just wondering why two web sites of the same company had different prices. My other question is do I replace the valve stems or are those part of the TPM?

I would print it out for them.... if its really low, they may need to file the paperwork for Price Modification processes...

Just makes it easier on them... which in turn, will make it easier on you.

If you are considering Tirerack for a price match remember TireRack charges shipping. We match delivered prices so shipping charges will be factored in. Once shipping is considered, we usually have their price beat.

Our stores are not required to match the Discount Tire Direct price if it is lower. In-store purchases for tires come with a FREE Prorated Road Hazard Warranty, on-line purchases do no include this. In-store purchases also come with FREE flat repair. On-line purchases do not. With this said, if there is a lower price at Discount Tire Direct it doesn't hurt to ask but remember that in-store purchases come with a lot of added services for the life of your tires.

So if I order from Discount Tire Direct do I just take the tires to a Discount Tire store for the install? And what's the deal with the valve stems and the TPM, wouldn't those come out of my old wheels?

Then why would anyone ever order online if you get more from the store? I have never needed tires shipped to me and seems like more of a hassle, so trying to find out what real benefit other people may have by ordering online.

If you order on-line you can take them to a Discount Tire store for installation. Installation for product purchased other than in-store runs $19.99 for mount and lifetime balance. You can purchase TPMS sensors or TPMS rebuild kits on-line or in-store.

If you have a local Discount Tire or America's Tire it really doesn't make sense to purchase tires anywhere else. Discount Tire Direct aims to sell tires to people that don't have a local Discount Tire or America's Tire nearby.

I know I must be a little slow but aren't the stems and sensors in my current wheels good enough to put into the new wheels? At a minimum I should only need stems right?

I guess the real question is aren't the sensors part of the valve stem?

Chuck - in your case, you should be able to do a direct swap of the TPMS straight into the new ones. They are attached to the valve stem but I'm not sure they are actually permanent attachments. Because I had steel wheels, the shop had to do the kit on mine but you shouldn't have to go that route.

Thanks Tee, I was thinking that they were part of the valve stem but can't seem to confirm it

Now that I think of it, TPMS is an attachment b/c the angle was off and the tech removed it from the valve stem to place it on the band instead. You better start posting some pics of these mods, man.....
