Michelin Pilot Sport Tires are fantastic tires BUT they are NOT "an all season wear and tear" tire, Summer only.
OP: Which Michelin (model) tire is Cosco suggesting. The correct "all season" Michelins, if the price is competitive, should be an excellent choice.
The technician at Costco has suggested 'Michelin Pilot sport A/S 3 plus'. Going through multiple reviews, i feel like these are the perfect fit my car, only thing these are 207$ per tire and guess what they have about 45k miles thread warranty on them.
As this is my first time, i'm looking for more guidance/suggestions on this topic.
On a side note, i have about 32k miles on my new car and the reason for changing tires is i ran over some metal object that was too close to the side walls to be repaired. Somehow, when i went to costco they said it can be repaired (Surprised but gave it a shot). After about an hour got a call saying that while trying to repair it they messed it up as the metal object was too close to the side wall (Dealership told me this earlier). So now, as this is their mistake they gave a prorated amount of 70$ to be used towards new tires. As i still have about 8k miles to go before getting another 2 tires, i decided to buy only 2 new tires from costco now. Is this a bad decision ? I know the general rule is to change all 4 tires once, but the other tires still pretty good and can go for another 6-8k miles easily.
Normal price: 207 * 2 tires = 414$ (plus taxes)
Price i got : 2017*2 tires = 414$ - 70$ = 344$ (plus taxes).
Is this a good deal ? Should i go for all 4 tires, as costco has a deal for 70$ off when you buy 4 michelin tires. Which would give me a total discount of 140$ (207$ * 4 = 828$ - 140$ = 688$ (plus taxes))
