How much should you pay for your Pirelli tires?

After 2 years I put 47,000 miles on my car. Got a nail stuck on one tire and the tire shop refused to fix it because its bald they say, so I decided to replaced all four of them I paid 1100 for four tires. Do u think its reasonable? How much should you pay for your tires?

Pirelli tires are about $300 a piece so that sounds about right.

$822 for a full set of 4 from tirerack.com

I wouldn't pay a grand for Pirelli's there's plenty of better tires out there.

Toyo Proxies 4+ for me. $748 delivered from Tread Depot! Tremendous traction and sidewall strength for an all season tire.

What size of rims do you have? I have the 19" rims with my 2LT, I paid $656 for all season Pirelli P-Zeros. Plus I got a $50 MIB card. Shipping was $100 from Tire Rack. So about $700 shipped.

The Dealership wanted something to the tune of $1,200 for the same tires. I kindly declined, ordered these from Tire Rack, and brought the tires with me to get them mounted by the dealership.

If they're 245/50/19 AS P-Zeros, I think you paid too much.

Yeah, the smaller ones in front and the larger ones in back, averaged out to 1200 I think maybe a little more. I got the steel factory rims and I'm running all season BFGs I think they are $99.00 a tire. I got a nail in the BFGs and one in the Pirellis, go figure.

I have 20 inch rims. 1019.89 total including installation wheel balancing, TMPS valve service kit and even waste tire disposal fee. LOL

plus shipping, plus mount & balance. $1100 isn't too bad (SS). Kaufmann beat everybody around here. BTW, I have no problem with the P-Zeros in Florida. They do exactly what I want them to do. Not really in the mood to pay $800 to $1000 to "Try" something just because somebody says it's better for treadwear or freezing temps.

That is pretty reasonable for the works, you never said that in your original post.

You are in California, so you get reasonable weather all year, here in Virginia, for about 4-5 months of the year, the Pirellis suck. (for those of us who the Camaro is our DD)

That doesn't seem too bad then. I had to drive a couple hundred miles to a better dealership with better equipment to mount these tires to my powder coated rims. Better safe than sorry. I think it was about $40 or so to have them mounted and balanced. About $60 in gas there and back, and another $90 to have everything aligned at another shop. All together the trip cost was closer to $900 for everything. But that's the way she goes.

Check flea markets. I found a whole set with installation for 600 at the Dayton flea market

Tire Rack $822 plus freight plus $100 for mounting & balancing (by a careful guy that loves Corvettes) and it comes in just under a grand.
