quick tip ways to save on tires, saving money

Good tires are critical for making sure your family is safe on the road, but can be a big expense. There are a few ways you can save though. The best thing you can do is price things out from store to store. Call or look online to compare prices for the tires you want.

Sam’s often has the cheapest price on tires and the savings can make a membership worth it. You can also look for rebates or store sales. Another option is to buy tires online and then take them to a local place to be installed.

      We purchase our tires through http://www.tirerack.com. and have them shipped to a participating merchant near us. This has saved us literally hundreds every time we have to buy new tires.

      I can’t possibly imagine that the shipping costs alone when buying tires online could actually net any savings over just going to the local tire place…

        I’ve actually bought tires online for several years and was always able to find the exact brand & size cheaper rather than buying them local. I have also taken the printout of the tire that I have found online at a cheaper rate and Kauffman tire will match the price!!

      You need to look inside the tires to see the date when they were made. You can’t do that online.

      Also remember to keep proper pressure in your tires. Not only are they safer and they will they wear slower, you will get better gas mileage too!

      Most tire stores will price match prices found online so you don’t actually have to buy them online. They will also match installation costs as well. Just be sure it is the same tire.

      One thing you really need to know about buying tires at Sam’s is that your tire package is no good if you let your membership lapse which should be against the law in my opinion. Their tire shop is incredibly slow and the guys out there just do not know what they are doing. We had tires that were made to roll only one way put on rolling the wrong direction which meant we could hardly keep the car on the road and it ruined the tires. Never again will we buy tires at Sam’s. Discount Tire in our town has nearly the same prices and you can be in and out for rotating and balancing in around 30 minutes besides the fact that their employees do know what they are doing. Buyer beware!

        I had a very similar experience at Costco. They put my tires on backwards when they are clearly labeled! Never again buying tiresfrom Costco again!

      Unfortunately, I have not seen good prices on tires at Sam’s – but that might just be my store! :-( Thank you so much for everything you do, Jenny!

      Where we buy our tires at a local tire store we can get our tires rotated and balanced free of charge. It takes them about 15 minutes, they do a great job, and to me it pays for itself!

      • Lauren

        Yes, we do too! It’s great :)

    • I purchase my tires used! Our tire place purchases them from the junk yard on damaged vehicles. The most expensive they go is $50 installed for a Honda Accord. I been driving on my $200 Michelin Tires, installed tax and all for the last year without any issues!
