Smilie [FONT=While searching for best deals on Michelin tires due to posts by: CartmanLikesPie, YARDEE, savebuck4u, & ShizNits I went to my local tire stores and priced Michelin tires for my Ford Taurus; 215/60R/16. Best Deal I found was at Walmart.

I asked for a quote and the salesman gave me clearance price of $75/ea for Michelin SYMMETRY, but the store only had three. I could order one from WALMART Central for $105 with no charge for shipping. I went to another Walmart and found one Michelin SYMMETRY tire in my size at entrance to the Walmart service center. It was in a stack marked $75.(note the other Walmart did not have tires in clearance stacks - had to specifically ask for a tire size and make on clearance). purchased one and took to other store for mounting. I understand this is a Walmart nationwide clearance on certain makes and models of tires based on stock in hand.

My Cost for 4 Michelin Symmetry 215/60R/16 tires with lifetime Balance and rotation,
new stems, disposal fees, taxes at 9.25% $380.25

I am of the opinion I may be eligible for one of the Michelin Spring Promo Rebates mentioned by the above listed posters ( $60 Visa card rebate)

Michelin Symmetry is a 65,000 mile tire with a treadware rating of 600

Previous local estimates for the tire were $140-200 more.

Tire Rack has the tire for $109.00 X 4= $436
Tires.Easy has the tire for $115.60 x 4 = $462.20

While doing reasearch for this post I found a link on the Walmart WEB SITE SHOWING TIRE BRANDS, MODELS AND SIZES INCLUDED IN THIS SALE: Uniroyal Touring Track, Uniroyal Long Touring, American Eagle, Douglas Gt, Tracker 2, Michelin Cross Terrain, Michelin Symmetry

Go to: walmart.com, Shop for tires, on left side of page under In-Store Services, cllick Clearance Tires.

I realize this deal isnt as good as ShizNits $195.00 deal but might serve those who have missed all those Michelin rebate offers

Note : This is my first post & I dont know how to do links.
lLve this web site, becoming addicted.

Michelin has closed its rebate page on the web

BUT I CONTACTED MICHELIN DIRECT AT 1-866-866-6605 (CUSTOMER SERVICE). MY PURCHASE QUALIFIES FOR AN ADDITIONAL
$60.00 REBATE. I ASKED IF THIS WAS THE SPRING PROMOTION VISA CARD REBATE AND WAS TOLD NO IT WAS IN THE FORM OF A
CHECK. REP DID NOT TELL ME THE NAME OF THE PROMOTION JUST THAT IT QUALIFIED, HENCE THE NAME MENTIONED BY POSTER:
CartmanLikesPie AS MICHELIN SECRET $60.00 REBATE. (GOOD ON PURCHASES 3/36/09- 10/31/09)


THIS MAKES THE DEAL EVEN BETTER $380.25 - $60.00 = $320.25

Is that including tire dismount and mount?
Local stores have better deal but they charge balance, dismount, mount, rotation which equals more $
Going to check out local walmart.

New Valve stems $2ea. X 4 = $8.00
Lifetime Balance & rotation = $30.00
Mandated State Disposal Fee & Tire fee = $2.85 X 4 = $11.80
Tn State Tax = $32.20

This was at Walmart Eastern TN zip 37803

Sale is nationwide based on LOCAL stock in hand of the brands and sizes listed at almart web site as nlisted above.

NOTE: One Walmart store queried their computer inventory for MY Michelin tire and told me they had none in stock. I went outside and found one in their Clearance stack. WHO DO YOU TRUST?

Not finding any 265/70/16 in that price range.

I'm sure price varies with tire size, 265/70 sounds like a truck/suv tire which tend to have higher load ratings and thus cost more.
