It's the difference between being a store with a supplier that has regular weekly shipping schedules and being a customer that gets something shipped to them once. The dealers probably have established shipments when they get inventory, and are just waiting until then to add your tire to an existing inventory order. Maybe??Several of the local dealers here couldn't get my wife's tires for atleast 7 days, but no more than 10 days. I came home, ordered the exact tires from MSS and had them in 3 days, free shipping. Makes me wonder about the dealers a little.
