Work with any other payment option.

Using other payment options, you will qualify for $40/$60/$80 (dependent on tire selection) pre-paid visa instead of $160.

$500? I got my bridgestones mounted and installed for under $300 w/o having to use sears CC or deal with any rebates. $500 doesn't seem much of a deal. $130 a tire? The people posting deals sometimes, I wonder what they were drinking Smilie
What size tire and model? It's all in the details... (EDIT: nevermind)

I have never had good luck negotiating with Costco but they will match competitor prices. Having your tires rotated and balanced while you shop is what seals the deal for me. Unfortunately 2 of my cars use high performance tires and I like to have them balanced with road force machines... Costco doesnt use them.

I paid $700 for 4x 285/75-R16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos on my truck, out the door. This includes balance, rotations, and flat repair. The price is almost always negotiable, so that's how I got the deal.



Why would it be hard to plan ahead with tires. Tires don't often fail catastrophically. Just observing the rate of wear can give you an idea of when to look for deals. Same goes with any wear item such as brake pads, batteries, etc.



Seems Firestone/Bridgestone has the buy 3 get 1 free deal every other month. I get the Firestone coupons emailed to me.



We are talking about installing rubber on a rim, not working on a car. Anyone can install tires on a rim, especially if that is their day to day job. I'd trust any tire shop to do this.
Trusting "any tire shop" is perhaps folly. Years ago I owned a Triumph Spitfire and had new tires installed at my (then) local tire shop. (It was NOT Sears.) Not long thereafter I was on a trip and driving down a mountain pass when the car simply stopped running. I pulled over and checked the engine bay to find that a wire had become disconnected from the distributor. As I was getting back into the car, I heard a "hissing" noise and saw the rear driver's side tire going flat. I put the spare on and drove to a tire shop. The tech informed me that all tires had been ruined during installation. The Triumph rim dictated that tires be mounted from only one side (don't remember if inner or outer) since diameter was different. The beads on all four tires had been compromised. I got four new tires--luckily at no cost since I was at the same franchise which sold the originals to me. I still have visions of going off the side of a mountain after a blowout.

Interesting story, thanks for sharing. Most people don't have tires with different diameter beads, myself included. I still trust any ape (who installs tires for a living) to install standard tires for my standard car. Of course, I do a visual inspection of any work that anyone completes.

I also add air pressure to increase fuel economy and handling, at the expense of a harsher ride and increased road noise.

So people that are saying $500 for tires isnt a deal might want to look at the tire size i bought. That is for suv tires. I am sure if you want car tires its around $250 and also that is for Goodyear tires not no name SAMs club tires. Fyi same tires at Costco were $700otd and best price at Discount was $670.

Apparently you don't shop at Sam's Club. They carry Michelin, Goodyear and BFGoodrich tires. Don't seem like no name tires to me. You can also check their prices on their website.

I need new tired but those falkens look like they have some horrible reviews. How often do tire deals come along on slickdeals that's worth taking a look? I just got a flat tire fixed and the mechanic told me my tires are in very rough condition and I should probably change them before it starts to rain.
Odd, a tire seller recommending that you buy tires? Take a peek at the tread yourself and see if there is enough meat left for your comfort level. The common method of measuring tread depth is the penny method. Google it. Also, tires have "wear bars" that indicate when replacement is recommended. When the tread wears down to the depth of the wear bar, you might consider replacing them.

I run tires down to the cords to save money and benefit from the increased mpg and dry performance afforded by the worn tires. Some people even shave brand new tires down just for the performance increase. Of course, I drive in a way that considers the road conditions and the state of my tires. Bald tires are prone to hydroplaning, which requires more attention when driving in the rain.

You and I have the same tire size 245/75r16 ... but you must've gotten P-Metric tires for that price. I couldn't do any better than $600 for LT unless I screwed part of the deal up.

Still, the tires I ended up with were $800+ otd price @ Costco/Sam's.

I purchased 4 Goodyear Assurance Comfortred for the wife's car on 9/1 when the deal was just $40 off + $160 rebate. Called and got the price adj. ($153). THANK YOU OP! IMO this is a way better deal than the Discount Tire FP deal from 2 weeks back.

Any thoughts on where to get these bad boys mounted, balanced, etc....? Not sure if I trust Sears to install them on my new 2012 Corolla. Their site doesn't even mention TPMS, which scares me a bit. Cheers!

We're talking a Corolla, not a Lexus LF-A. I think it'll be fine at Sears shake head

Just had mine done. They'll charge a bit extra for the tpms when you get there. Mine was $5.99 parts $3 labor per tire.

This price looks reasonable for me, but I would never want to to get one. Although the information is helpful.

Can any one tell me what is the installation option to choose? for the balance and valve stem. thanks

currently, I choose 90 Day Tire Balance and Rubber Valve Stem. but not sure if I should pay more for better option or pay less for worse option. Is sears' Performance Balance (Life of the Tire Balance Mounting Included) good/useful?

Wow. Missed the DTD Labor day deals, but got 4 ComforTred tires for 392 OTD. So I'll be getting 4 nice tires for a little over 230 installed. Nice!
