I am replacing OEM equipment on a 1999 4x4 Suburban. Off road is not a factor, however, snow will be in Connecticut.
1. Hankook Dynamic RH03- is anyone familiar with this brand? I would like to increase my gas mileage and road noise is a factor.
2. Has anyone bought on line and had the tires mounted at home? What online service was used? I was looking at Discount tire direct. Any comments?
Thank you.

I have purchased tires from Discount Tires and Tire Rack both several times. They both are great companies to buy from. They can drop ship to any local tire shop near your house so you don't have to lug your new tires around. Usually mounting and balancing is about $15 each tire. Online, I saved at least $75 for a set of four tires. The larger your tire size, the more you can save is what I have noticed. Maybe more mark up on larger sizes. Ask the sales rep at Discount Tire about treadwear. Something above 400 will generally give you a lot of miles for that tire. I bought the Bridgestone Dueler 683 for my Explorer. I have 30,000 miles on them now and they look about halfway worn maybe. My friend got 65,000 miles on her same Bridgestones with her F 150. They are a nice quiet highway tire that last along time for trucks and suvs. Hope this helps you out.
