Michelin winter tires Costco

Why You Shouldn't Buy Tires at Costco (Free Money Finance)

I've now purchased two sets of car tires from Costco. They are great tires (Michelin) at the best prices I could find anywhere. The first set lasted as advertised and I had no problems with them or the service at Costco. But the second set has been a bit different. Not with the tires themselves, but with the service from Costco. It's so bad that it's making me re-think my future tire decisions. I probably won't buy another set of tires there.

For those of you who don't know the setup at Costco, when you buy tires from them, they will rotate the tires free of charge every 7, 500 miles. You simply bring the car in, turn the keys over, and they rotate them for nothing. Not a bad deal, right? Well, there are a couple of snags:

  • You CAN NOT make an appointment for a tire rotation. It's simply first come, first served. Forget trying to time a tire rotation to coincide with regular shopping at Costco - if you're three hours from any sort of semi-popular shopping time at the store (which is almost any time they are open), you're looking at a two-hour wait at least. Why can't they simply let people make appointments?
  • After the tire rotation is completed, they strongly suggest (you have to sign something that says you've been advised of this) that you come back after 25 miles to make sure the tires were put on securely. I'm sure this is some sort of legal protection policy, but it says one thing to me: "Unlike other garages, our mechanics aren't that good at tightening nuts on a tire, so be sure you bring your car back in to check because there's a good chance one of your wheels will come flying off at 70 mph." In addition, if I leave Costco, make a couple other stops, then drive home, I'll be at 25 miles with one trip back there. Does this make any sense?
