Tires - online vs brick and mortar

I've had my 03 530i Sport for about 8 months now. The car had brand new Federal SS595's (235-45-17 (f) and 255-40-17 (r) ) on the car. They have been pretty good tires but I'm researching for replacements for next spring. I'm an "early-bird" and start looking for things well before I actully need them. I do not live in Ont. I checked out a few online shops, and one in particular,, had pretty good prices and shipping rates to Canada. I have done a bit of tire research (reviews etc) and the SUMITOMO HTRZ-III look like a great bargain...
Subtotal: $414.62
Shipping & Handling: $190.96
Tax: $0.00
TOTAL: $605.58
plus HST on delivery (shipped Fedex so I do think there's brokerage fees like UPS)

Has anyone ordered:
a. from this retailer?
b. experiences with online shopping for tires?
c. is it really a big saving from buying local?
d. any other comments (pro and con welcome)
