I just picked up a pair of these through Walmart online and had them shipped to my local store in 225/65-16 size for our 2016 Nissan Quest. They're made by Horizon Tire Co out of China and with installation and tax, I'm at $164.25 all-in.

This was the first time I mail-ordered tires thought Wally online and had them shipped to the store. The tires seem great so far, as was the actual install, but it wound up being a bizarre experience for me all around.

Firstly, I was charged twice for the transaction on my charge card, that neither Walmart .com or my local store could explain or resolve. I had to dispute it through my CC company, which was quick and easy, but hasn't happened yet. The second issue was, when I went to the store with my order number and "ready for pickup" notice, they couldn't find my tires. At one point they had 2 employees and a manager involved. After about 45min of me standing there and other customers getting ahead of me, they finally found ONE of my tires on a cart full of miscellaneous tires that were dropped off by FedEX. They were able to grab another exact tire from someone else's order to make me whole, but wow!

I'll post back after we put some miles on these tires. They're a huge difference compared to the well worn Goodyear Assurance that were on there, as one would expect. Super smooth and quiet.

I just wanted to share my experience here, but at the end of the day, I figure I only saved about $40 over buying no-names locally. Was it worth it? Meh.. maybe.

Just put Michelin's on the wifes Explorer. Was going to go with Costco as the price was lower but let Discount Tire beat them. I have a great track record with DT, so why change if I'm happy with the company?

It's always interesting to read of the differences with chain stores.

In the past month I've ordered 2 sets of tires from Walmart, ship to store and installed them there. Everything went very smooth and I got great tires at a great price. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.

^ Given the number of tires on the 'ship to store' cart, it looks like my local Wally does a LOT of it. I'm sure my experience was a fluke and they apologized up/down about it. It's just something that can happen given the extra steps in the transaction I guess.
