Once they find the right tire at the right price, buyers can purchase the product online and have it delivered to a certified local tire dealer of their choice. lets consumers know their installation charges up front. They pay for everything -- including installation - in one simple online transaction.

ATD says in most cases, there is no delivery charge, and tires are delivered to the dealer of the buyers' choice within one or two days.
