No sales tax on tires? What's the current law?

Just a quick update, the S21 pair is $166 if bought in March. This is because of a Bridgestone rebate Visa card for $50.

Q. is it true that a retailer doesn't collect sales tax unless they have a store in your state? If that's the case, is there any online shops that aren't in California?

Looks like motorcyce-superstore has some good prices:
$95 Front
$120 Rear

Quote:
If you do not have a physical presence in the state, you are not required to collect sales tax for an internet-based sale to someone in that state, according to the ruling. But each state can pass legislation to overrule that decision, so if you have a physical presence in more than one state, you should be aware of each state’s internet sales tax rules.

I've been buying tires from AmericanMotoTire.com in Arizona for a while now, they've never charged freight or tax and I usually have them in two days

I guess it's true then, I wonder why they wouldn't just setup in a low population state. Selling tires/hardware can't be a high margin game.
