It wasn't Tire Rack, was Tirebuyer and at the time, price matching did not include an additional Tirebuyer discount coupon plus Chase rewards 5% off, made them the cheapest by ~13%. Maybe only 8%, the other Chase 5% was by using paypal and IDK which online tire sellers take paypal.That's on Pep Boys not Tire Rack.... speaking of them (Tire Rack) did you let them know you had problems? (they actually do follow up)
Last time however my local Firestone store offered to beat their best price so always ask.
I hadn't been in Pep Boys for years and don't see myself ever going back. While roaming the isles, I noticed that they don't even try to be competitive with Autozone or Advance Auto on the parts I'd even consider buying locally instead of online.
In that case it happened to be Cooper Tires, that Pep Boys did stock. I just hadn't considered that they'd be little weenies about not buying there, since they did have the option of not being an associate installer if they didn't want the work. I mean during Tirebuyer checkout, it lists installers and installation appointment slots available, didn't have to set that up separately or give them Pep Boys' address to ship to.
