Has anyone here run into this? Suggestions?
I was against the idea as well but I've completed about 5 transactions with Tirerack and about to make another order. They are 100% legit. As for buying anything else, I would only recommend paying by CC and paypal so that you are protected in some way.
FYI, you can do international bank wire transfers online now so it only takes a few minutes too. The associated fees are also cheaper too.
