|Bridgestone Potenza 185/65 R15 for Mini Cooper after 38600 miles|
I would love to get those high performance tires from TireRack.com but for $450 including installation from a qualified tire technician, it is just to steep for a college student like me.
So, I have been scouring my neighborhood for cheap tires for Mini Cooper and came up with Firestone Complete Auto Care. My father got his tires from them for his Toyota Highlander. I figured it would be a good option since the service provided from my father's visit was good.
They have about 6 tires for Mini Cooper (185/65 R15):
- Primewell PS830/850 for $43.99 per tire
- Falken Ziex 912 for $77.99 per tire
- Firestone Affinity Touring for $85.99 per tire
- Firestone Champion HR for $80.99 per tire
- Firestone FR710 for $89.99 per tire
- Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 for $107.99 per tire
I have heard most of the tire brands above except Primewell. Primewell tires are on my father's Toyota Highland so I can basically see for myself how it stands.
The Primewell tires on my father's Toyota Highland are still in good condition. There are no visible wear after 5000 miles. I will report back on this after another 5000 miles.
And back to my Mini Cooper's tire replacement. I chose Primewell tires for my Mini Cooper because of the price which is $87.98 including installation for two.
There's conflicting reviews on Primewell tires out there, but I guess I will take the risk and see for myself.
I am scheduled for the 24th of April, Thursday. I will report my service experience later.
