$500-600 bucks for a set of four tires = cheap tires.
Maybe for a 255/30-22 sized tire, but definitely not for a 225/50-17 tire.
$580 - $80 (alignment) = $500 ÷ 4 = $125 per tire. Even if you subtract mount/balance and tax from that, that's still $100-$110 per tire.
Cheap is $75 per or less.
there is no discount tire in my area. Do you recommend sam's club??
I've been reading through the threads on tires and it seems like people want "super performance" or "low sound". Honestly, I need low price. I will take tires w/ cans on them!
$100-$110 per is very expensive for Primewell's.
For that price or less, you can pick up something nice(r) like:
- Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 or Sumitomo Enhance
- General Altimax HP
- BFGoodrich Advantage T/A or BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S
- Dunlop Signature II
- Falken Ziex or Falken Azenis PT-722
- Nitto Motivo
- Bridgestone Potenza RE760
- Hankook Ventus V12
Sam's Club will be fine, though I find their prices to be a little higher than Discount Tire/America's Tire and sometimes even Tire Rack. See if they'll price match. If they don't, you can call Discount Tire to see what deals they have and then have them drop ship the tires at a nearby tire place that can install them for you.
Discount Tire (Direct) is currently running a promo for $25 off a set of 4 Cooper, Hankook, or Yokohama tires
(Offer expires Monday, June 16th, 2014).
The . They're $105 per and have a $70 rebate (expires Tuesday, July 15th, 2014) when you buy 4. So [($105 x 4) - $25 promo - $75 rebate] = $320 or $80 per with free shipping. Add $10-$15 for mount and balance and you'll have a really nice set of tires for around $400.
Another option is to check your local craigslist for a set of new Michelin take-off tires from a similar generation Accord. People upgrade and sell their stock wheels and tires all the time. New take-off tires should run you less than $500
Never cheap out on tires.
