    Deals on Buying New Tires

    In preparation for selling my car, I just purchased 5 new Michelin tires from Jeff0093 (he used to own Jlaa's car) who has a shop in Connecticut. As I've done with him three times now, the process is simple:


    1. Place an order with Jeff (he can help choose the best tires)
    2. Pay Jeff's company (www.autotechnic.net)
    3. Pickup the tires at the warehouse closest to you


    Prices are on par with Tire Rack and you pay no sales tax or shipping. Tires are usually ready for pickup in 24-48 hours from order placement. You then take it to your favorite shop for mounting and balancing.

    On top of all of this, some of the manufacturers now have rebates on the tires which Jeff submits on your behalf. I'm getting $70 back from Michelin in 4-6 weeks.

    Robert,

    Thanks for the nice review, usually the cost of the tires are less then Tire Rack. In this case of Michelins Premier A/S they were 12% less then the Rack or a savings of $20.99 per tire.

    Another satisfied customer - I echo Robert's comments on pricing and outstanding service. Without any haggling whatsoever Jeff got me to a price point on Michelin's that was well below anything I could find online or locally. And that included shipping *and* the Michelin rebate on top off it all. Tires received today to my door without having to lift a finger.

    Outstanding deal if you're in the market for tires.

    Re: Deals on Buying New Tires

    I want to also give jeff0093 my strong "Kudos" for the most seamless and fast buying experience I've ever had with tires. I got a set of staggered 18" Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and saved almost a couple hundred dollars over other sources, and more than a couple hundred dollars over other sources. All I had to do was drive 30 minutes to the warehouse in Hanover, MD (next to the Baltimore Airport) to go pick them up. The paperwork was waiting for me. I'll be buying a second set of tires in a few weeks.

    I believe the Pilot Sport 4S tires replace the Pilot Super Sport units.

    Thanks again Jeff for doing this for all of us.

    Recommend that if others are in the market for new tires, jeff0093 is the way to go.

    I bought two sets of Pilot Sport 4S tires.
    They ride and handle great.
    Sorry I didn't know about Jeff's deal.

    Thanks Gerry,

    I'm happpy the pick up went smooth. If anyone else needs tire advice or great pricing let me know. Usually I can find a local tire center for local pick up across the country or I can always ship in at minimum cost.

    Hey Jimbo long time no talk,

    Sure we can take care of that for you, are you still at the shop you were working with? I have a nice Hunter mounting machine that's touchless, give me a call anytime.

    Re: Deals on Buying New Tires

    Thanks Jeff ! TOTALLY appreciate

    I might bring them down some Saturday to have you guys mount them up right.

    Yes, my shop did hire some gorillas. I can't do any rims/tires with them anymore.
