COSTCO - Michelin tyres 20% off wholesale price! BARGAIN!

44
Found 13th Jun 2009
Until early July 20% off all (pilot, energy, 4x4, taxi & van ranges) costco tyres....

All you have to do is purchase at least 4 tyres in one transaction (upto 8 tyres in total)

I just bought 2 x 195 michelin energy tyres for £99 the pair!!!

My old man got 2 x 225 michelin pilots for £189 the pair.

Both very happy campers indeed!!

I realise not everyone can get membership but if you work in certain industries (including the public sector) / own a business you are quids in!

This is a frequent offer but (every few months) but just in case soem are not aware, it certainly makes the membership fee worthwhile!

They're always having 20% off their tyres. I don't know why they don't just make it the normal price.

how much are these tyres normally then?

20% more :whistling:

Actually it wont.

here if you have a 100 of summit and you wanted get 20% off. 100 - 20% = 80
So if they sell the tyre for 80 + 20% , that would be 80 + 20% = 96

tut tut :-)

I got a 25% discount when I bought 4 tyres 2 weeks ago.

Costco are actually one of the cheapest places for tyres.

As an example, I bought Michelin Primacy HP 225x45xR17 for £118 per tyre, then got the 4th one for free.

No where else was cheaper for these tyres, and worked out even better with the 25% off, effectively making them £88 per tyre.

I disagree. See my other post

Depends on the tyre size. See my other post for an example.

I love costco, especially their customer service (bit stroppy in MK branch thou).

BUT Tyres are usually the things I DONT BUY there, cheaper deals are usually found by checking adverts in the local press (not by ringing round).

Plus you are extremely restricted with their choice of tyre.

they dont normally let u put some of the tyres onto seperate cars, do they?....all the tyres have to be on 1 car aint it?

Has anyone else managed to get different tyres fitted like the OP? I too believed it was same 4 tyres although you could take 2 home and come back for fitting at a later date on those.

I know for my car 235/45/17 Costco are the cheapest for Michelins so with the 20% off it works out a v good deal

Of course you can get cheaper tyres but can you get cheaper Michelins?

You can't. Costco take these from Michelin as the guaranteed lowest price in the UK.

...and Costco only sell Michelin because it's the best brand of tyre you can buy and if it's the cheapest in the country that's a no brainer of a hot deal then. Case closed.

I wouldnt say they are the best brand, but one of the best.....it just depends on type u buy..cus the energy ones are meant to be crap at road noise and stopping distance, thats the trade off for better mpg.

btw..costco fills these tyres with Nitrogen gas.....anyone know if it s ok to top them up with oxygen if they need topping up later in time?....any pros or cons about it?

I asked the same question when I got mine fitted.

The guy said we recommend ~20% max normal air. Then at earliest opportunity bring the car back to us and we will deflate and refill with Nitrogen as complimentary service.

ic..just asking cus my father has a set of tyres from cosco not long go

Can't you just ask them to put plain air in them as it's a lot less hassle?

The AA - Filling Tyres with Nitrogen

I got 2 for my car and 2 for another car and they gave me the 20% off both pairs on a previous occasion. Then they said the other car actually needs all 4 replacing but they charged full price for those as it was only 2 tyres ! Some people have been buying 4 and storing 2 until they are needed and returned with the receipt for fitting, sure I've done it myself in the past. Just ask them.

Pity Michelin no longer make decent 4x4 tyres, like BF Goodrich, or even Pirelli.

I checked at Costco recently and was told they had no demand for off road tyres any longer. So they no longer stock the Synchrone range (which were only an 80% on road, 20% off road tyre anyhow).

Sad that so many 4x4 cars never leave the tarmac really, as there appear to be so many in the UK?

Good hopefully everyone going anti 4x4 will stop single woman driving them on there own around towns holding everyone up :whistling:

I got mine from CostCo in January when they had 25% off.

Got 4 x Michelin Pilot Sport 2 - 225/40 R18 92Y for £423.16
They fitted 2 to rears, removed my rears, refilled with Nitrogen and fitted to the front and I have 2 spare tyres in the Garage. When I need them fitting CostCo will do it for free assuming it is with 12 months of purchase date.

Buy all my tyres from them and have done for years, can't find better they were even cheaper than a local distributor who my mate uses who owns his own Garage. Granted not by much but CostCo includes fit and balance.

What's the easiest way to get a Costco card, if you don't run your own business?

Join as an individual member, provided the company you work for is on their list. You can also have a job like teacher, dentist, doctor, accountant etc to be able to qualify as a personal rather than trade member.

Go in the Store with Photo ID, Utility Bill and a payslip from work and you can join, think it's £25/Year

In the past I have run a fleet of vehicles. Every vehicle had a log book in it which showed when every tyre, brake pad and exhaust was changed. We recorded the price paid for every tyre etc and therefore were able to work out the cost per mile.

We tried Michelin, Dunlop, Kumo and every other type of tyre and the reslts were that whilst a Kumo may cost half what a Continental cost we never got half of the mileage.

Our results meant that for cost per mile the cheapest tyres were continentals (ECO's). They were prone to a bit of road noise over Michelins and were not quite as grippy but were the best by far. Second were Michelins, better in performance and more grip and a premium of 10% over Contis because they were not as hard.

I have never been able to find Michelin's as cheap as Costco's, even without the sales on.

One aside - These tests were 10-15 years ago so may not be as true today, but I cannot believe that things have changed that much.

If I had a non performance or small car I would buy Contis. My car gets Michelin's every time!

Hope this helps someone.

Costco only sell Michelin (and at the cheapest price) cos they are both owned by the same parent company in US.

If you ain't got a Costco card check the prices here : :thumbsup:

Filling tyres with oxygen would be a very silly thing to do.

You're right - the tyres bloke in MK is a bit stroppy. Don't know why, he just is,.

Not true.

Another happy customer here.
This tire change they noticed a problem with my alloy wheel, which meant extra tire changes for them. I expected to have to pay extra..... but they did it all for the basic price.

I think you misread my post? Off road tyres are required for driving OFF ROAD.

I think that if "single Women" are paying up to £410 a year to tax their cars, then they are entitled to drive them on the roads all they like?
Even infront of sexist pigs. :whistling:

Even double that 410 does not mean you own all the roads, so no they shouldn't be entitled to drive them all they like.

I guess it depends on the type of membership you apply for.

As mentioned earlier, Costco allow employees of many companies to join provided they show the payslips. You just mention who you work for, and they look it up.

My OH got us cards by taking in work pass that has no mention of the company name on at all and said she worked for a bank. That was it @ Lakeside 3 months ago. And partners get a free card included in the £25 thing too.

Email them for a list and an application form. You can literally join for such varied professions and it;s not like it needs to be organised through your work. I think it was anyone in financial services tbh. They emailed me back in about 10minutes with everything.

This was for a personal card for £25 a year.

Didn't know that.
I always get my Michillens from Costco cheapest I've found. Worth the long drive to get them done there (and a bit of shopping too :whistling:).

Also, when I purchased two front ones they rotated the rear tyres at the front and the new tyres at the back. Said it's their policy to do that.

Only problem is that I have to order mine as they don't always have them in stock.

I still think it's worth it for the price, and their excellent customer service.

That reminds me... I need to replace them soon

Don't fall for it, regardless of whether it is free or not.
