I just had to replace my rear tires Michelin PSS 305/35/19. Two years ago I paid $788.00 installed, today I paid $888 and that was with a 5% Veterans discount and another 5% for applying for a Discount Tire card with 0% interest if I paid within 6 mos. Otherwise it would of been just south of a $1000.

And can we please stop turning everything into a damn political thing? Some of us come here to get away from that bullshit.
I'm right there with you brother.

Oh yah ? Here in the great white north we pay:
Product price

Then on top of that taxes:

1. Provincial sales tax
2. Goods & Services tax
3. Enviromental tax
4. Recycling tax
5 Carbon Tax

So say 100 bucks initial
1. 7%
2. 5%
3. 2% on average
4 2% on average
5. 10% on average

grand total of 116.00

but wait, did we miss a tax ? Nope. We pay Carbon on top of all of that:

New total of 127.60.

So... could be worse.. you coulda had Trudeau-like numbskull haha.

Current US National debt is $34.50 trillion. During Trump’s presidency, the national debt grew from $19.95 trillion to $27.75 trillion. So Biden is on track to match Trump’s own spending — or quiet a bit below it if we factor in inflation.

Back to the topic, I spent $850 on new tires 4 years ago. That corresponds to $1000 dollars today. That’s just inflation, not price gouging or pandemic shortage. If you are upset that expenses follow inflation but not your salary, then move to a European country where salaries are automatically indexed to match inflation, like Belgium for example. Or vote for the people in your own country who have a real social agenda.

You're talking to people who will die on hill of capitalism, yet miserably fail to understand its basic fundamentals.

I got 2 quotes (dealer and a local shop) for 4 new Michelin P Sport 4s.. $1900. Then Costco quoted around $1700. Flippin ridiculous prices. So, I will go drop $1900 for tires, $100 for a full tank of gas afterward to test out the tires. Then $21 for a sandwich because I sure as heck will have an appetite after driving on the new tires... Then I will drop $80 on flowers for my wife because I spent the $1900 on tires.... I think I'll just go buy a darned tricycle. Cheaper all the way around. :)

With this in mind, we have a problem with sideshows around NorCal. Any time I see the rubber left at intersections from the clowns doing this shit, first thing I wonder is, who the hell is paying for the tires that are getting burned up every weekend?

if you're a USAA member (or know one) you can buy Goodyear tires for 20-30% off year round and mount+balance is 75 for the set. Granted that's the same as buy3-get1 that you can get from Costco most of the time. But if you want the best summer tire (Supercar3) that's the only way to get them.

Unless you stumble across a flash sale at one of the other purveyers where I bought 265/40/19 for $125 each instead of 350+.
