You might want to check online at Walmart. They will ship to the store for free, then you take the TT down when they come in and have them installed.

Keep your hands clean.

Like any place, if you use WalMart be sure and watch them do it and make them lift the trailer properly. I've not been to a WalMart where I was impressed with the mechanical skills of most of the shop folks - but that can happen anywhere.

I bought my Carlisles from Walmart, but they would not install them on a trailer; cars only I was told. Called around and everyone quoted me $25 per tire, so I took it to an RV dealer who installed them at that price.

I just had mine done at Discount Tire. I put on Goodyear Endurance. They quoted the same as the Goodyear site, $127/tire. But online they had them for $109. They matched it and dropped the install price down since I got 5 of them. Got the whole thing done in about 40 minutes.

Over the years I have purchased 14 sets of tires from Tire Rack and had local shop install them. I always give the local shop a shot at sell me the same tires but only once did they match the price so I save a lot over the years and they have a selection like you won't believe. Was especially helpful in finding a set of 4 to do our 16000 trailer. Rating now high enough for freeway speeds and super sidewalls compared to the China tires these all come with.

Tires at Sams Club

I live sort of half way between two sams clubs. One had plenty of room outside the tire bays to park an RV and I bought tires there. The other sams does not have good space outside and they would not do RVs. I have also bought from discount tire.

Most Discount Tire stores can handle a 5th wheel or TT. They do the work in an area close to the bays. Walmart can do the same, I just like the service at DT better.
Make sure you get ST tires, not LT or other truck tires. ST tires are specifically designed for trailers. I would also suggest you go up at least 1 load rating, to add some safety factor. I have a 2006 Montana, which came with load range E tires. I have load range G tires on it. They are a little larger in diameter than the original tires, but still plenty of space for them. The tires I bought have an 81 mph rating, which provides more safety factor (I am an engineer, I like conservative designs).

Getting new tires

When I replaced the tires on our Fiver, took it to a Tire shop, (POMP's is the name, figure it's not a big chain), where the also do Semi-trailer and large truck tires. Talking to the clerk, he said they did all the tires for 2 local RV dealers, because these local RV shops don't have the equipment.

They recommended some tires that were reasonable price, and the installation was quick and inexpensive.
