Anyone Have a Denver Metro Auto Tire Connection?

So, just had a rear tire fail on my on my Audi. Before I throw myself at the Sears vs. Discount Tire wolves, do any of you Denver Metro FFs have an independent auto tire connection you can refer me to?

Thanks in advance!

If you are awd, depending on the wear of the remaining tires you might have to replace all of them or get the new one shaved

I'm replacing all of them. My wife had to have the car ready to go for an appointment, so I just bit the bullet and bought a set of Falken's from Discount Tire.

Wish I could help. I DO have a direct line to a tire manufacturer through my employer, but they do mostly trailer, utility, construction, ATV and turf tires. Last I asked about rubber for my Dakota, I was told unavailable. There's never any harm in asking, when inmates need tires...... I'd be glad to check. We don't have the proper means to mount or balance the bigger stuff, at any rate.

I've always been treated well by Discount Tire, and have no complaints with them.

It may be a tad far for you, but I've used the Big O in Louisville for 10 years now. It's a franchise store owned by Matt Story; Really good guy, cares about his customers. I could diatribe w/ stories of how they've treated me well but I'll save y'all the text wall.

They are just north of South Boulder Road on the east side of 95th St / Hwy 42 / Hover even though the address is:

1301 S Boulder Rd
Louisville
(303) 666-8665


Ask for Matt (owner) or Adam (manager). Mention me if you like (Jarrod Blair).

Thanks for the feedback... it's appreciated. Like I said, I had to get the car back up and on the road for my wife, so I just ended up going to the Discount Tire that's closest.

Thanks again!
