Best place to buy wheel/tire packages?

I know this has probably been asking a million times, but wheels and tires are my first Jeep mod and looking to buy in the next week or so. What are the best sites with best prices that you guys are familiar with?

Missed out on a great opportunity on craigslist today Seems like ebay is really a thing of the past now.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I have looked on several sites just by generic searches but didn't know if any of you have ran across any smaller companies that try to beat prices on the bigger ones.

Tire Rack usually has good prices, and then most local tire shops will price match or even beat the online stores if you bring them your best price.

I've bought a bunch of tires from Discount Tire Direct, low prices on tires and free shipping. I've never bought a tire wheel package though, so not sure how good a deal they have on those.

I bought the tire and wheel package on my ZJ from them. Great price, and great service, I'd do it again in a second.

And keep in mind that on certain tires Tire Rack maybe cheaper than Discount, but check the shipping...it's free at Discount, and that normally makes them a better deal.

And if you buy the package from discount, mounting and balancing is free. Only negative to them is that they have a relatively small selection of wheels.

But having local shops try to price match is good as well. I found a killer price on Nitto's for my Firebird online, then got a small local place to price match it.

I've shopped tire rack before, but I can't figure out how to assemble a wheel/tire combo IN THE FREAKIN SIZE I WANT on their web site. Everything is based off vehicle type and does not take into consideration modified vehicles. What am I missing?

Summit actually seems to have some pretty darn good prices too.
