Until the 20th of Nov. there is 20% off all michelin tyres in Costco.

For example, (including VAT) you could get 4 x Michelin PE2's (195/50/R15) for £206.75.

That is the price fully fitted! A saving of £45 compared to the cheapest online fully fitted company (bestbuytyres).

You need a voucher from the latest book, but you can pick these up free instore (Also you need to be a member of Costco).

Looks good but a pity theyre much more expensive than they were last year.Good thing is if you only fit2 you can get the other 2 fitted at a later time at no extra cost.

Not yet another Costco Cash & Carry 'deal' that's only available to a limited number of people who have either paid, or have access to someone who has paid, a membership fee to shop there.

Do the people posting these 'deals' work, or are funded by, Costco?

Perhaps it's about time that someone looked into the matter!

well I work for a small company who employs less than 20 people, my boss who is a costco member has me on as an additional member. I do not get the VAT off but this is including VAT so Im not fussed.

I don't work for Costco and are not funded by them (I wish lol!). But then I doubt you will believe me just because I say it.

So your a player hater because you have no friends that work in the financial industry or government or own there own business.
Anyone who is regulated by the FSA can join, surley you know someone.
Maybe we should stop BESTBUY deals as there is no shops around me?

I got a price from them for fitting Michelin's on my car but they proved to be dearer than 3 other tyre fitting groups. The cheapest I found was Nationwide.

Nothing wrong with posting Costco deals. Please keep them coming :)

I tend to get my tyres from there cause they've been cheapest. A few years ago we even purchased a Large Childrens garden play frame which was about £2,300 more expensive in our local garden centre. Costco even sent round someone from manufacturer to check and replace some of the splintered wood.

And No I dont work for Costco nor do I mind if people post deals from shops that are not accessible to me and it won't stop me adding heat just because I can't purchase them.

I've also shopped from Costco in USA while on hols and returned the item in UK cause it developed a fault and got my money back without any problems.

I am a regular costco shopped but never really found the tyres to be of good value. Still dont think theyre good value even after the discount.

My advice to you: if it says Costco in the title don't click on it. Easy!

So because you can't shop there, no-one else should benefit?

I ordered some winter tyres under this deal last week and they said even if the tyres don't come into stock until after the offer has finished, they'll still honour it as it goes from when you actually ordered.

Another thing to look out for... lots of independents are offering a free £40 Sainsburys fuel voucher with a set of four tyres and possibly a free winter pack as well with any four winter Michelins. The info for the fuel voucher is available at http://www.michelin.co.uk

how many miles would these last? i changed 4 off 195 15 60s on my avensis for some korean nexens- a budget brand and they last 26 thousand miles on the front. only 35 quid each fully fitted. would these be much better?

I find http://www.camskill.co.uk to be about the best. I had the opportunity to go into Costco the other day to check the prices of the tyres and they were soooo expensive in comparison to Camskill. Costco were £50 per tyre dearer, plus id have to pay £10 to get to Costco ...and then theres the yearly membership fee.

Personally i dont think theres a benefit to having a Costco card as the supermarkets are around the same price, and when the likes of Tesco do buy 1 get 2 free Costco are nowhere near as good.

Last time I ordered my 275/30/19 specs tyres for my car and even after one month of waiting they could not get hold of it. It was on back orders. Kept almost a grand for a more then a month and returned as there was no estimated time of delivery. won't trust costco for anything.
#18
Yeh they're not the cheapest but it's really convenient - drop the keys in, do a bit of shopping and it's done :)

They wanted nearly £300 per tyre for mine - way over local places.

that's poor - can't believe they took the payment in full before they got em in. usually customer service is great there... should've had a barney and got some free stuff out of em :)

I'm a Costco member and a big fan, always buy my tyres from there. once had a Mitchelen tyre go faulty which was half worn, developed a slight bulge as the tread lifted. Costco immediately replaced with a new one without charge and sent the tyre back to Michelin for investigation. Short time later, Michelin wrote to me with their appologies and included a voucher for a free tyre. Now that's what I call good service!
#21
Awesome, I need to replace my front two, do you have a price list?

My gf is a member.
#22
Voted hot! just went on Saturday and got 4 fitted, the 2 tyres with reasonable tread thrown in the boot.
Excellent deal for excellent tyres and the main reason i have a Costco membership in the first place!
#23
Those suggesting alternative suppliers are not showing like for like as all they appear to offer is tyres delivered to your door. No valve, no balancing and no fitting. Even with these prices they are more expensive than Costco. I'm no fan of Costco in general and I only really buy tyres from them, but even with the annual fee, it has always worked out significantly cheaper than anywhere else often even without the extra discount.

If you want to buy el cheapo tyres with names even sillier than IKEA furniture, then it is probably better to go elsewhere.

That's not a bad deal for Michelin tyres so have some heat...... but there are better tyres available!!! For the same money you could have a set of Hankook Ventus S1 Evo K107 from blackcircles.com
Forget the PE2's these these Hankook tyres beat Michelin's premium PS2's read the flowing review:

There are many deals only available to a limited amount of people though.
We don't have a lot of shops that people down south have but that doesn't mean the deals shouldn't be posted, there wouldn't be many deals on here if they had to be available all over the UK would there?

#26
Those quoting costco as more expensive for tyres - are you comparing like for like??

Yes, you may save £20 per tyre when buying 'Wanli' tyres, but Michelins are in a different league.

Last time they issued the voucher I had 4 Michelin Primacy HP's fitted for £258.

Camskill currently quotes £290.36 for these, and you'd have to fit, balance, and supply the extras yourself.
#27
Camskill FTW, I got 4X Toyo T1Rs for less than £200 delivered. Fantastic price

This seems a decent deal though

Before buying 'budget' tyres it's worth reading this:

http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/Autocar-Tyre-Test-Budget-Tyre-Performance.htm

Extract: "The Linglong equipped VW Golf Autocar used for its tests was still doing 27.8mph at the point where it had stopped on the Continentals."
If you want/need to go budget then look at Barum. They're Continental's budget brand but come out well in tests, not far off the Continental branded ones in fact.

Yeah, 'Billy no-mates' should go and check it out before commenting that it's a fix. There are some great bargains at Costco - and some not so, just do your research, or bring a 3G phone with you and Google it! But don’t forget to factor in the best Guarantee you'll ever get - and often 3yrs too!!
#30
I can fully recommend the Michelin Primacy HP's. Had them on the rear of my car for over 20,000 miles and they still look brand new.

Temporarily swapped them to the front once, with cheapos on the back, that was terrible, was getting oversteer on wet roundabouts, swapped the Michellins back to the back and the car was solid again.
#31
Great thanks. I've just bought a car a couple of months ago, but the tyres are cheap and don't stick to the road very well. I want to replace the tyres on my car for better ones that will have a better grip on the road. I've just been told that one of the cheapest places to get new tyres is Costco, so great timing, will have a look on Saturday.
#32
Bearing in mind that the tyre is the only thing that keeps you on the road and that only a tiny patch of each one is in contact you are a fool if you don;t buy decent rubber.
#33
Always found Costco very cheap for tyres in the past but mainly on the common sizes as they have them in stock, anything outside the norm they aren't always the best price but will be checking the cost of 4 winter tyres as I'm due to take my 19s off for the winter and fit my standard alloys back on

You surprise me :|

I've never known Costco to take any deposit/money from members for items out of stock or any payment until they have actually sold the goods and member has received them. I needed two tyres once that were out of stock. Costco ordered them and called me within a week for me to come in and get them fitted. When I've compared like for like Costco always cheaper (even from internet).

A few years back people used to purchase expensive tv's and return them after 3 or more years (having still paid yearly membership) saying they'd had a fault - Costco would refund the money without even checking or asking any questions. The member would then buy the latest model which by then became cheaper. But Costco have stopped that now and if your TV developes a fault after, I think 1 year, you have to deal with the manufacturer and their warranty.

Almost all purchases have no quibbles guarantee/refund as long as you remain a member.

Costco tyres here's my 2p:-

First the Pro's

- 1 price fitted on the car - none of this + valve + balance + disposal etc all added in at the end, usually get quite a competitive price also, last time I checked the Kwik fitters etc couldn't compete but I guess it depends on which size of tyre we're talking about.
- Seem very professional having 2 people to sign off and check the wheel nuts are torqued up.
- They fill the tyres with nitrogen not fresh air, lots of comments on the web on this one, whether it's worth it or not, but hey they do it at no extra cost and they'res no negatives to having Nitrogen.
- Costco customer service is usually 1st class - in the event of a problem they seem to go the extra mile to fix it in my opinion.

Cons:-

- They only stock 1 brand - Michelin (Some rank Michelin as the best, others rank it slightly lower, somewhat subjective me thinks), none the less if your bag is say Pirelli or say Good Year then Costco is not for you.

- Not everyone has (or has access to a friend) with a membership card.

- New tyres MUST go on the back! This one used to annoy me. I go in for 2 new tyres on the front, Costco ALWAYS put the best tyres on the back, then shuffle the old rears onto the front (they say it's according to Michelin guidelines). If you don't like this... tough, you then have to change them round yourself. Not everyone might agree with Costco / Michelin's theory on this one.

That's all I can think of for now, for me it still represents a good deal!

I always thought this made sense because even in a front wheel drive car, you're more likely to oversteer if the grip is not good on the back. Understeer is easier to control than oversteer.

Regarding Costco, some things you can purchase from them are bargains and some things not. Even with tyres, it varies on the type of tyres you want as well as the tyre dimensions. It was a bargain for my Dad's old Merc as the best price I could find but not a good deal for my car when looking for a more performance tyre. This was a few years ago but I don't think they've changed drastically in their pricing.

It may be right, or it may be not. Though I always buy my tyres from Costco, this policy annoys me. I am the customer, not Costco, and it is up to me to decide where I want my tyres, not them. Luckily I always rotate my tyres at the annual service, so always buy tyres in sets of 4, so it doesn't apply to me.

Purchased my tyres on Sunday due to the deal. Thanks for the heads up.
