Good maintenance deal???

I seen the "lifetime" of tires and almost )!>'ed my pants!

Tires are pricey. The only thing about this deal is you have to have ALL your crap done there. You think it would pay off? They said that every 21,000 miles you get new tires...



The small print at the bottom... (if you want to read it over...)

The Montrose Auto Group agrees to replace your original vehicle tires when tread depth is worn down to 3/32" or less. You must have ALL service maintenace work performed at our facilities, as per the recommended maintenance service boook throughout the life of vehicle or all benefits will become null & void. Your Montrose Auto Group Rewards Card is VIN_specific and nontransferable. By appointment only and does not include mounting and balancing. Must accumulate a min. of 21,000 miles upon purchase of a loyalty rewards card. Alignment must be peerformed every 15,000 miles or 12 mos., whichever occurs first per factory maintenance manual. Alignments and customer pay items are your responsibility. Tire warranty is valid only for original owner of vehicle. Tires must be rotated every 5,000 miles or per factory maintenance manual. Replacement tires will be equivalent to the original factory tires. Damage to tires by accident or road hazard and air pressure is not eligible for free replacement.

Yeah? Most likely will... I went today and spent $100 on oil change, tire rotation, and cabin air filter...

Cheapest tires I found for this car are about 150 each.

The legalease in the bottom reminisces of those "Cheap Health Insurance" Faxes we get at work all the time. If it sounds too good to be true, chances are, it is.

lol total costs of going this route would far outweigh the idea of getting new tires unless you wanted to burn them off ina few months at a time lol. But if you were to follow your recommended vehicle servicings you're going to lose an arm and a leg on the cost of it.

I like to be able to know what I put on it, know that everything was done, and I also like good sticky tires....

If you're not going to modify the car then that might all be ok but if you're like me it probably won't work out.
