Don’t blame you driving down Villa Park going to be a sticky season :-P

”Come on the Blues”!
Don't buy Michelin if you do low mileages (eg on a weekend / hobby car). My experience and confirmed by a tyre fitter that they perish much faster than other brands so you'll be failing MoT after a few years with loads of tread still left.
225/45/17 Michelin Primacy cost £74.99, I need 225/50/17 and they are £30 more expensive... Some good deals... if you are lucky.
Got 4 215 x 45 x 17 W Primacy 4 fitted £265. They do make the road noise more bearable than the other Jap ones that were on from new

They never do decent deals on the ones I'm after
Great deal - just a note on if you only want two for the front for example - Costco will fit your new tyres on the back and your back tyres on your front and vice versa

That’s company policy they will not fit 2 new tyres on the front or rear irrespective of what you want - for handling safety reasons.

You can of course change them if you want but that’s at your own risk / responsibility.

Heat added.

Agreed. We’ve done 4,000 miles in 8 months and a Costco fitter said ours were fine with plenty of tread left despite looking awful and barely legal

235/60/18??
montana7810/09/2019 23:21

235/60/18??


235/45/19 or 245/40/19

Both usually pricey. Second one at oponeo is 416 or something like that for Pirelli P Zero that I'm likely to get next month unless something better comes up
I need a set of these for the wifes motor, I'm not a costco member, can anybody explain the process? Ideally I'd just buy them and get them fitted by my own tyre guys as the closest costco fitting center is 45+ mins away and I want them fitting to brand new wheels not the wheels that are on the car.

They can’t do that if you have a BMW as they have staggered wheels, I.e. the rears are wider than the fronts so you can’t swap them.

I wouldn’t use Cosco if this were true, it’s my car and I decide what I want to do with it.

Not all BMWs have staggered wheels

True but my point still stands. I have owned 5x BMW's in the past 10 years, we currently have a Z4 and a 5 series and they have all had staggered wheels.

They’re higher end models, they sell way more 1, 2, and 3 series models without such wheel setups than they do the higher end ones. You’re in the minority.
How is a 2L Z4 a higher end model?

Again, my point still stands in that if you do have staggered wheels, Coscto won't be able to swap them round.

Perhaps but I'm only saying what is true,

Maybe as you suggest they won't if they can't but make no mistake that is the policy and I've seen Costco staff happily turn people away when they insist they fit the new tyres on the front or back.

I tried it - wanting the two front tyres replacing with new and the response was no way - we will put your new tyres on the rear and the barely worn rear tyres on the front.

Take it or leave it was the attitude but not in a bad way, more a that's the only way and that's that and you sign to that effect on the work sheet too.

Fair enough, thats a good enough reason for me not to go to them for new tyres then

I have never heard of this practice before so claiming its about safety is nonsense, I can't see how it makes any difference at all.

Aye' Costco probably lose a fair amount of tyre business when you consider this policy.

But when you consider they turned over $141 BILLION dollars last year I expect you'll find they don't care much

The outer layer of a tyre wall is not structural. If it perishes and cracks it should not fail an MOT.

I don't understand this...so on a front wheel drive car they will put the older ones on the driving wheels and the new ones on the rear?! Think they need to look at their policy!
Does anyone know if there is a good deal on tyres for my x5, 315/35r20 110w, they are runflats which i hate, so i might replace the rear 2 for normals but budget tyres will be ripped apart on this car, cheapest i found online was 225 for runflats each

Tyre Installation terms :



Costco will not perform services on tyres purchased by non-members. A Costco Member must be present before installation will commence.

General Notice

The final decision to install a tyre on a vehicle will be made by the Costco tyre centre manager or supervisor. The tyre must meet all vehicle manufacturers’ safety standards and specifications.

Non-Installed Tyres

All tyres purchased on Costco.co.uk must be installed to a tyre rim. For bulk or non-installed tyres, please contact your local tyre centre for assistance.

Standard Tyre Installation

Costco will only install tyres authorised for a specific vehicle. If you are unsure if your purchase is an authorised fitment, please contact your local Costco tyre centre for assistance.

Winter Tyre Installation

Whether your vehicle is Front Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive, Four Wheel Drive, or All Wheel Drive, winter tyres will only be installed in sets of four. Dual Wheel Drive Vehicles winter tyres will only be installed in sets of four on the rear of a dual wheel vehicle or a complete set of six tyres.

Speed Rating

Tyres will only be installed if the speed rating is the same or higher than the speed rating that the vehicle manufacturer equipped the vehicle with from the factory.

Load Carrying Capacity

Tyres will only be installed if the load carrying capacity is the same or higher than the load carrying capacity that the vehicle manufacturer equipped the vehicle with from the factory.

Installation of less than a full set of Tyres

When a member does not replace tyres in full sets, Costco’s tyre fitting policy is to position the new tyres on the rear of a vehicle. This policy is consistent with the direction given from all the major tyre manufacturers and tyre industry associations. Safe vehicle operation is the driving force behind this policy.

A few vehicle manufacturers have wording in their owner’s manual stating that new tyres should be fitted to the front of a vehicle. Mechanical issues are the driving force through this direction.

This direction conflicts with the Industry & Costco’s safety policy of when only 2 tyres are replaced, that the new tyres must be fitted to the rear of the vehicle. The conflict here is safety versus mechanical. When replacing 2 new tyres only on the front of a vehicle, this makes the vehicle unstable and susceptible to sudden lack of stability and over steer. This creates a safety hazard not only for the passengers and driver in the vehicle but it also creates a safety hazard for others who may be harmed by a overturned or fish-tailing vehicle.

A members request to sign a waiver of liability for the installation of replacement tyres only on the front axle will be denied by Costco.

Four Wheel Drive and all Wheel Drive Vehicles

It is always recommended to replace tyres on Four Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive vehicles in complete sets. When purchasing less than four tyres, the tyre size, tyre profile, load index and speed rating must be the same on all 4 wheels and the overall tread depth between the old tyres and the new tyres must not be greater than 4mm.



If less than a complete set of tyres is purchased, the new tyres will be installed on the rear of the vehicle. The final decision to install a tyre on a vehicle will be made by the Costco tyre centre manager or supervisor. The tyre must meet all vehicle manufacturers’ safety standards and specifications. Costco cannot take responsibility for mechanical issues that could occur from installing less than 4 tyres.

General Notice

Costco tyre fitting bays cannot be held responsible for tyres that do not arrive at the chosen warehouse on the selected date. Selected dates are not final and cannot be guaranteed. Tyre bay managers will accommodate where possible all online selected dates and times.

All tyres purchased on-line will need to be fitted and cannot be supplied uninstalled.

That's Costco's terms and conditions

Either way, its hardly a way to get repeat custom by dictating to customers what wheels the new tyres will go on etc. Ours are both staggered so I am tempted to order a set to see what they would do

I have had tyres changed at probably 20+ different places over the years, at both independants and dealers and never once had them tell me this policy.

I would tell them where to go, be funny to see them have to put the old tyres back on after I refused to let them replace perfectly good tyres.

Makes sense it being American, I don't need to save £40 personally for the rear end ache of their terms and conditions, although its more like £20 if you shop around as their tyre prices are slightly more expensive on some models depending on what ones you are after so the saving is not as much as it seems.

I understand your puzzlement but fronts losing their grip before the rears (understeer) is widely regarded as safer than oversteer. Oversteer easily leads to a spin whereas understeer scrubs off the speed (as long as you don't go straight on into a hedge!).
