Geez! These tire prices

I bought a set of Michelin Cross Terrains for the M Class a little over 1 1/2 years ago. I paid $142.00 each taxes, balancing included. I just priced the same set to put on this summer and they were $954.00! That's $386.00 more in less than 2 years. I know oil has went up, but dayum!

Yeah, they're so expensive now. Still looking for cheaper, but still as good tires. OEM keeps coming up again and again though....

As you know, the dollar has been in free fall for awhile now.

It's going to make a lot of things more expensive

RE: Geez! These tire prices

I just picked up a pair from the VYC tire store on ebay, used, for $64.95+ shipping. It was $99.95 for both total. They came in and I had them installed early Saturday morning. There was about 66% life left on them, so I got a wheel of a deal (pun intended).
