20% discount on Michelin tyres

8y, 1m agoFound 8 years, 1 month ago
20% discount on a set of 4 Michelin tyres. Ok you may not need all 4, but they will fit them any time up to 2 years from purchase. May not be cheapest for most popular sizes, but certainly a good deal if you need a premium tyre in a less common size. To save the questions, yes you do need to be a member, everyone knows at least one. Offer runs for a month from 27th October 2008.

Not normally the case 'better tyres will last longer' you can get cheaper tyres that last longer ... check out reviews on http://www.tyretest.com/

I'm guessing any 225/40/18 tyres are going to be out of the question :(
#6
Good deal, though it used to be 25% in previous years.
#7
Does anyone know if you can buy different tyres, or do all 4 have to be the same? We need two tyres on each of our cars, but the tyre sizes are different.

They had some last time the offer was on, but the prices were close to £200 a tyre fitted. I opted for XL Pirellis from a local dealer and paid half that.

Cheddar, they'll sell you as many or as few tyres as you wish though I don't know how they apply this offer, which is what you really want to know!

However, I've had some trouble with Costco tyre service in the past, with nuts being damaged by careless use of air tools - which would be inconvenient, to say the least, if you didn't notice it until you had a flat in the rain at night! In my case I spotted it (too late to go back to Costco, and they'd only deny it anyway) and was able to get the nut off eventually (at the cost of the nut and a mangled socket from a socekt set) - but this could happen at any tyre place with a sloppy employee who doesn't care.

Recently I had to get four new tyres for a Renault Espace - with Michelin tyres from Costco at about £162 each. A friend suggested Wembley Tyres in Willesden in London - they sold me four comparable Avon ZZR's (as used on high end cars) for about £70 each - a huge saving. I've had no problems with the tyres after many, many miles, so I'd genuinely recommend you to check out what you can get from independent dealers such as Wembley Tyres - they saved me a packet (in an area of motoring where I'm not willing to compromise on quality).

Hope this helps someone else looking for decent tyres and good service.

For my last tyre change I used Event Mobile Tyres. The price they quoted was very reasonable and they come to you (office or home) so you do not have to wait around at a garage while your tyres are fitted.

I remember years ago we apprehensively bought some cheapo Vredestein tyres and they seemed to last forever and are about the best tyres i've ever bought.

Crikey, sod that in the ear! I can get Eagle F1's fitted for £110 each as it is :oops: I miss the days of buying 14" tyres :x

IMO cold as you have to pay for membership, it should be added with the deal!!

Costco will supply any size tyre sold/stocked by Michelin UK.

Prices vary by size but are around £42ish for a 185/55/15 including VAT, fitting, balancing and nitrogen gas fill.
#15
If you have a costco in your town, go to an f1 autocentre and save yourself an additional 10% of the difference if they are more expensive :thumbsup:

There's not a lot of point you guys saying you found different makes cheaper elsewhere; you can always get cheaper makes but what you can't do is get cheaper than Costco for Michelin.

It was mentioned in the deal that you need to be a member - daft reason to vote cold.

You can when you use the f1-autocentre price guarantee :thumbsup:
...and no membership fee required with them either


Edit: Perhaps you can't
"Costco is an exclusive wholesale cash and carry membership warehouse club and is not open to the general public. Membership is required. You are eligible for trade membership if you are a bonafide business owner/manager who can provide evidence of trading"
That wasn't mentioned in the deal was it? :-(

That seems a hell of a lot. Are you sure about the price? I use 225/45/17 which I know isn't excatly the same size but they cost £100-£110. I suggest that OP phones costco to get a firm price. I'd be surprised if it was more than £130 + about £2 for fitting & new valve.

In short yes you can.
I did it a couple of years ago.
Good luck. :thumbsup:

I have some cheap "Kings Tyres on my car, and they truly are dreadful, i had them on the back, and the back end kept stepping out of line even in the dry, on a front wheeled car, i changed to the front, and know they start wheels pinning halfway up steep hills.

On the plus side, they have done 15,000 miles and still look brand new. But they are useless for grip, i know which i'd prefer, i'd pay more for better quality on tyres, because it could save your life

Black Circles did me 215/45/17 Eagle F1 tyres for £93 a corner fitted on my other car - might be worth checking them out, as they give you a discount if you get friends and family to go there too.

Costco has Trade membership which allows shopping before 12 noon and normal membership for certain professions which covers a lot of people- banks, building societies, local Govt, etc etc. In practice they generally allow normal bods in at the same time as Trade members.

Dunno if I'd say that. www.mytyres.co.uk and www.blackcircles.com are quite competitive for Michelin's. If you've not got your heart set on Michelin's you can get another decent brand like Pirelli, Continental, Bridgestone etc etc for a bit less than the Michelin's :)

When you think that the tyre is the only part of your car that is in contact in the road it is in fact one of, if not the most important part of your car and something that you really need to consider spending money on.

i have got a question about these costco tyres...they are nitrogen filled (or inflated)..so what happens when you check tyre pressure lets say a month later and it is low? can you inflate them with air from petrol stations?

Air is something like 80% nitrogen anyway, and yes, you just fill them with normal air at the petrol station

A friend recommended this to me for tyres.

I swear by Michelin tyres, had Pilot exaltos on my last 3 cars (always from Costco) and never once accepted any substitute. Superb wet and dry grip and great wear characteristics too, best all round tyre for me and I'm a petrol head.

Voted hot

Like dashforth I use the mobile fitter option, but Event Tyres don’t cover my areas, both work or home. http://www.etyres.co.uk/car-tyres-batteries are just as if not more competitive for good branded tyres that come to you.

The service I have recieved from various discount tyre fitters promted me to look for an alternative and I couldnt be happier with the service I received.
#32
If you can find a fitter locally then [url]www.camskill.co.uk[/url] are very competative for tyres and generally beat mytyres and blackcircles for sizes I am looking for 225/35/18 or 225/40/18's

I've bought from them in the past and they came next day.
#33
Michelin Energy Saver , the latest offering from the company, and a tyre which is the most cutting edge producit out there, is worth even paying the normal price. But this deal, makes it even sweeter. I got 4 tyres for £154, all inclusive. I was quoted more than £280 for the same set from high street chains. And , wow what a tyre, specially since i moved from dunlops and goodyear. Get it , while stocks last!!!
#34
The deal is 20% off 4 tyres and a maximum of 2 deals, so that;s 8 tyres in total that will be discounted.

I think ATS are running a similar promo with the posters in the gents bogs on some motorway services.
