I don't buy online, just because you can never be sure how the tyre has been stored and for how long. At least with a tyre shop there never going to stock more than they know they can reasonably sell and you can see how they store their tyres. But that's just my opinion.

You do realize that just before the tires arrived in the tire shop that you trust they were stored somewhere else by someone else and you don't know how? Same warehouse companies are doing the bulk storage for all the different shops and e-shops, running an on-line shop in 2019 is not having your own warehouse and buying stuff from manufacturers.
