New tires.


So I bought this old cargo mini van a few weeks back. It just now flipped 55k original miles on the drive back from the shop yesterday, where I had it parked. I stopped by Discount Tire on the way and bought four Arizonian (Kelley Goodyear) Silver Edition 215/70/15's with the certificate meaning if there's abnormal tire damage for any reason such as a nail in the side wall or I hit a curb than I receive a brand new tire for free for $468 total. I wanted the Coopers but they only had two in stock so they gave me these which were $15 more per tire originally for the same price as the Coopers.

When I bought new truck tires last year they gave me a deal then too, $460 walk out with the best old tire mounted onto the spare rim and those are 16's.





NTB said they shopped the competition daily but were over $100 more for the same tires.

Can't hardly buy 14's or 15's here. They are becoming obsolete.
