Not the best deal ever but good enough for those needing new tires... The best deal is $200off (once a year frequency?), $150off deal has been more common but not recently

Sorry to be off topic here... Could use some input on car batteries. The last 3 i purchased from Advance (all Gold series) crapped out on me within 2 years, they're 3 year batteries. I've got a 96 Jeep 4.0 XJ and for the past years only drive it about 2-300 miles a month -to and from work only- as I've got another vehicle) I don't wanna get stuck with another battery that only lasts 2/3rds out of what's advertised. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

As for tires I've only had Hankook and Goodyear trail runners, the Hankooks have been exceptional.

Agreed, mediocre deal for subpar tires. All the past experiences with Bridgestone tires have been poor. They wear out way before their expected mileage even when driven cautiously. Also seems easier to get road punctures and flats. Would much rather go with Michelin tires if I really needed to get tires from Costco.

Much better deals are to be had from Discounttiresdirect when they run the holiday sales along with rebate offers. Americatires and other affiliated companies with Discounttiresdirect also offer discounted labor rates if purchased from their site.

I've had the Optima red top and the Odyssey batteries that are double the price of regular batteries but have a much lower tendency of going bad in less than 3 years.

Since we're in a Costco thread... get your auto battery at Costco. They have a great warranty and if it starts to get sluggish within the warranty period, take it back in and get a free replacement. I have done this twice now, and only had to pay the tax on the replacement.

I agree with the other poster, battery tender. It can be hit or miss though. I have: NOCO Genius G3500 6V/12V 3.5 Amp Battery Charger and Maintainer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LWV...xEbJE1VQY5 last month, it brought back a completely dead battery that was used for over 4 years back to life. I tried it on another battery and it didn't work on that one. Definitely good to maintain it

My experience with Michelin has been disappointing. They are quiet and smooth, but I have never exceeded their warranty. My current tires have worn out after only 35K. I went to Costco and they said that two of them can be covered by warranty but the other two still has just a little bit life left. The warranty on these tiers is 65K.... My last ones lasted a bit more but I got covered by the warranty at that time too. I will not get Michelin again.

You should just put the 2 thats not covered in the front and drive on them until they wear down some more, then go to costco and get a new replacement. Costco is so good at replacement under warranty.

best deal is to price match all costco deals like this at americas tire and hope that theres a stackable rebate. i did the $150 a few weeks ago and got an additional $70 rebate that came in 1 week...super fast.

I thought so too, until my Premiers were worn.. the sales guy said the new ones are soft and wear out too quickly, then the tire shop manager told me I wasn't rotating them, we looked and found we missed one rotation in Costco computer, but that's because I had it done when I got an oil change. Refused to look to warranty them.

Oh wells, looking for a Michelin that is quiet and long lasting for my RX 350 is a chore.

I put on some Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires on our RX350 last year since they were so damn cheap with the rebate. I believe they were $92 each from Walmart and had a $70 rebate to sweeten the deal. Got a bit of cb from another site and they became a complete steal for performance tires.
