on average, Sears in cheaper than anyone else in town.

last year I went to walmart/sam's club for 2 tires for my Charger. they had 2 different tires, that's it, 2. they couldn't order anymore, 2 brands was all they had. I went to Sears & they had half a dozen different brands in a dozen different styles...and they were cheaper for the same 2 that Wal-Mart had.

the wife works at Sears now so I also get the employee discount which makes them hands down the cheapest out there

I won't mix radials, so the same tire goes on the front.
I've used Michelins for decades, on more vehicles than I can count. I have no reason to switch.

I tried Tire Rack. By the time I drove to the nearest one, I wouldn't be saving anything.
I worked in a tire store & as a mechanic for 40 years & there are better tires out there than Michelin`s, you don`t see them run on race cars !.............

FWIW: I use WalMart on vehicles and prescriptions. Because I travel, and because WalMarts are everywhere, I make my life a little easier.

My last tires were GoodYear from Discount Tire..... They also have locations where I travel.

I've been in the tire business for 40 years and have managed a Major retailers store(s) for over 29. I like Bridgestone tires!, have never had a problem with them, michelin when made in Europe was one of the best!! Now they are made in SC by machines, don't let the advertising fool you. It's a commodity, like sooo many other thing
