need some new tires which are affordable and come with a warranty. Any recommendations?
Continental Pure Contacts ,... America's tire. Consumer Reports buying Guide #1 rated.
You owe me kid.
What is affordable?
I am about to buy a set for $600 at Costco. $70 rebate plus free mount and balance. They are 80k mile tires. Discount tires out the door price is $900 with the certificates.
My opinion is you don’t skimp on oil, tires, and brakes or at least buy mid priced.
No warranty though.
Just get a jack, some cinder blocks, secluded parking garage
Milk crates are lighter
Why would you want El Cheapo tires on a vehicle that you are relying on for your livelihood as an uber driver?
Cheap tires don't last very long, fail at much greater rate, and don't provide a very good ride. In the long run, you are better off buying quality
Walmart. Free balancing and rotations included. I just have some Goodyear Viva 3's. It was $300 total for a set of 4 with the lifetime balancing and rotations.
Obviously not the best tire but it has been 15,000 miles so far and I don't have any complaints or problems. The warranty is for 60,000 miles I believe.
Don't go to a big place.
Find the small tire shops.
The best tires are less expensive in the long run.
Uber drivers don't think of the future, obviously.
My last couple sets have both been Yoko Avid Ascend, good for 80-85k depending on size. Also rated highly for winter driving. Price isn't too bad and I got them at Tire Discounters so free rotations, which is a lot of free money on rotations considering how long they last.
I wuz scrolling through this thread hoping someone would suggest Kumho tyres. I gotta say YES, they’ve been great on my Merc people-movers, and when I ran a V8 Holden (Chevy) Caprice.
Of late, I’ve stuck with Pirelli Scorpion tyres for the Tesla, not cheap, I don’t baby the car but still get 40,000kms + on great performance tyres.
I got a set of Goodyear Comfortred's for $120 each at Goodyear. I used the Goodyear credit card and got $160 rebate and 6 months no interest. Free tire rotations too. 80k tread life.
Pay attention to the terms of the tread warranty. They require regular rotations etc.
Costco is cheap and will rotate and fix leaks for free. the wait sucks.
Tell me you're not doing Uber...
In a Tesla...8>O
I got BF Goodrich with 70k mile tread life and very happy. Five months in and many miles and they still look brand new. Just don't buy any Japanese tires that are cheap. I had 20 inch wheels on my Taurus and payed only 500 four tires.....the problem was, every six months they were almost wore down to state minimum inspection.
Tires have good grip and ride is quiet, smooth. Trust me, stick to name brand good rubber and not anything Chinese if your going for the real cheap.
I get tires that have a second life...
Used BF Goodrich tire $50...
I get 25000 out of them...
A good tire is a good tire...
Need to know how to spot a good tire...
Or have a great tire guy...8>)
Most of us think about getting thru the week.
Set of four compact car tires bought Walamrt.com then installed can run $300.00, cheap!
My wife works at Walmart. I love using my discount card for tires and oil changes
