Shopping for tires - what am I looking for?
I got the minivan in the divorce. She had it for 2+ years while we were separated
Sidejack - got a new tire installed, but it leaks. Wheel looks (visually) in pretty rough shape.
I think in either case you need to take it back because they can tell you whether it's something
Yes, if the edge where the bead sits is corroded or beat up, it can/will leak*
if you dont care and want a decent price, just hit a Just Tires, etc
This is nonsensical
I got a tire replaced yesterday at 47th and Racine. It took 15 minutes and cost $10*
All Day Tire Shop, Division and Wolcott*
That's good one too.*
That used to be my spot when I lived in the area*
Replaced or patched?*
Somewhat-related tangent: I don't undestand used tire stores.
They usually recommend people change tires in sets.
Twice in 2018 mrs. Effin blew tires by hitting road debris.
I assumed it was sort of the second
I could also imagine a situation where one relatively new tire goes bad...
Costco almost always require you to order in advance
I've pretty reliably been happy with Discount Tire over the years. *
Costco also does free rotations...
We buy from discount tire and that is true, they do provide free rotations.....
Check the roundness*
Just go to costco*
I’d stick with Michelin, Continental, or Bridgestone*
ugh on Michelin.
My experience with Michelin is that they're very expensive. My ATS came with M run-flats that were
The lowest price tire with a UTQG rating over 650*
Round rubber things that help propel your car down the road, and don't call me Shirley. *
Least expensive that have a decent rating *
Four thousand miles a year? Get some that are middle of the line and rubber and you're fine*
Lol..I did 2k last month. Luckily work pays that one. *
I'm averaging over 2k a month on one of our personal vehicles.
