    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.
