We do a discount, but it's not a whole lot. Tires are one of those items that have been whored out for so long that the delta between retail price and the "going rate" for internet/mail order prices is huge. We have almost dropped selling tires because of the crappy margins, but I regard it as a service to our riders. If we make 15-18% we're doing good on tires.
So our "regular" prices (120/180 set) are $225 for Diablos, $209 for Sportecs, and $203 for 208ZR's. We give forum members a $10 discount off this price. Shipping is a flat $18 per set outside of CA and $12 per set inside CA (but we have to add tax in CA). Picking up at our shop saves you an additional $10 since it saves us the hassle of shipping tires. I don't know what the other sponsors do, but this system works for us quite well.
