Wholesale/mail order tires rarely end up being a good deal anyway, after you count shipping, mounting and balancing.  Most tire shops will move some on their prices, albeit reluctantly sometimes.  Do a google search for goodyear mtr tires and see who lists them in stock if you're set on mail order.

I've had good luck with Americas Tire around here. I saved hundereds over Les Schwab by going to them.

any decent tire place can get any tire you want... that said, if they cant get it, they are not worth doing business with... haggle, many times, a shop will sell below cost jsut to obtain a customer with the hopes of retaining a new customer for futrure services becasue they beat out their competition
