Buying Tires Online?

Anybody buy tires online? What are the draw backs besides finding a shop to mount and balance? I figure I can save $200 dollars in taxes, road hazard, & disposal. I've almost put 3,000 miles on the Ex since I bought it in July so I'm not worried about the road hazard & the money saved will cover a new tire if need be.

I don't want a tire war but, has anybody ran the Nitto Terra Grapplers? I want an All Terrain and it's a toss up between the BFG, Firestone Destination AT, & the Nittos (all 285/75-16 Load Range E). I've ran the BFG's before in my J10 and know they'll cup if not rotated. I figured that the Nittos will have the least tread life of the three, but I figure they'll dry rot before I wear them out.

Thanks,

Jason

I ran firestone destination m/t's and liked them alot never ran the a/t. I don't like bfg they're too soft for my liking, and have heard the same with the nitto's.
