Now’s the Perfect Time to Buy Snow Tires, Thanks to This Great Deal


September 6, 2019 Cars By

Do you live in a part of the world that regularly sees snow fly? Then you need winter tires for your car. Winter-specific rubber is the single best feature for any car that finds itself navigating snow and ice — better than four-wheel-drive, better than plentiful ground clearance, even better than seat heaters. (Well, the latter might feel like a bit of a toss-up sometimes.)

With Labor Day fresh in the rearview, odds are good winter driving is the last thing on your mind right now. But this deal is big enough to warrant snapping your thoughts ahead a few months: Right now, Tire Rack is offering $80 in savings when you buy a set of four winter tires. (The money comes in the form of a prepaid Mastercard the company mails to you, but hey, saving are savings.)

The eligible list of tires stretches longer than that skid mark you left when you were 16 and lost control during your first winter behind the wheel; the sale includes 15 types of Michelins, 14 types of Pirellis, nine varieties of Goodyears, 4 types of Continentals, and a whopping 18 types of Bridgestones. Suffice it to say, if you can’t find tires for your car here, you might want to consider trading in for a new model. (In which case, we recommend one of these vehicles owners hang onto longer than most; for what it’s worth, more than half of them offer all-wheel-drive or 4WD.)
