Every driver wants to get only the best tires for his vehicle. Unfortunately, tires manufactured by the leading tire companies can often cost a fortune. Then again, with a little research, you can find great tire specials online that can spell big savings for you.
For one, you can search online for rebates that you can mail in to get some of your money back. These are usually offered by the tire company or brand itself so you can look these up on the company website.
Currently, Michelin is offering a $70 rebate on its tires, and there are also several rebates available on different models of Falken tires. Kumho Tires is offering a $100 Visa Prepaid Card, as well, on every purchase of four Ecsta LE Sport tires.
Aside from checking the company websites, you should also check the websites of tire stores where you can print out coupons. Tire outlets and automotive centers usually offer discounts on automotive services but they also offer great tire specials once in a while.
Of course, you have to check the validity date or the promotional period covered by the rebate or discount coupon to make sure it has not expired yet. You might want to read the terms and conditions, as well, even if it is in fine print, so you know just how much you have to spend and how much exactly you are getting in return.
Some companies and tire outlets also offer special discount cards or special membership programs which entitle you to a number of exclusive discounts and other promotional offers all year long.
Looking for tire specials is a good way to get great tires at low prices. There are other ways you can try, too, though. For example, shopping online will usually allow you to save more money, especially if you do so at tire discount stores that get tires by the bulk.
If you do not like to shop online, though, you can still save money by simply asking estimates from the tire stores in your area. Many tire outlets have a policy of trying to beat the estimate given by the competition so the more stores you ask estimates from, the more money you are bound to save.
You can check tire auctions, as well, or even consider getting used tires, though with the latter, you should be especially careful in checking the quality of the tires.
