Since they take good care of me, I'll add America's Tire in San Jose on Brokaw (across the street from Fry's.)

I've ordered Falken Azenis RT215's, Hankook RS2 Z212's, Kumho V710's and Hoosier A6's from them. David Gee is the manager and I'm sure he'll take good care of you. Mention that you are an SCCA racer and your wallet might feel a little heavier after you pick up your tires, but I can't guarantee anything. Smile

The basic is tire rack. But they can't get you all the brands you want, such as Falkens, Hankook, Federal, etc.
Plus I had bad experience with them sending me bad tires, and would not own up to it.
The goal was this would be a list for the Tire Rack Alternative...

But you are welcome to list Tire Rack in the format above. Smile

My local tire shop was willing to match internet pricing on Falkens. The tires ended up being $5 over his cost, but I have been a good customer. They still make money on mount and balancing.

American Tire in Fremont. They matched the best price I found online (Falken 615s) and the guys that work there do a nice job of mounting and balancing.
