The tires on my 2001 Tundra are 9 years old starting to dry rot and have little cracks all over them. They aren't worn out, so I kept putting it off. I finally decided to get while the getting's good and bought a new set. The fellow I know at the tire shop said they expect some big tire price jumps when the current batch is sold and the newer production hits the market. He said the Michelins I bought could go up as much as 50 or more bucks a tire in the next 6 to 8 months. It all is tied to oil prices. You'd better get them now if you think you'll need some in the next few years!

Last December, I had to buy four new tires (Michelins) for my RAV-4. These new tires cost me over $900!!

The cheapest 35” tires I can find in an MT for my truck are $1000. The tires I have on it are $1600 now (up from $1400) I need tires but no way I can swing that now. I have a set of 33’s I may slap on it for now.

I was referring to his comment about buying now for needing them a few years down the road.
I didn't say buy them 5 years ahead, just if you think you'll need them in the next 6 or 8 months, you'd better get them now. Maybe I wasn't clear the way I said it. If you do buy ahead, you can keep them out of the weather and sunlight, and they will last much longer than on a vehicle. I've known people that have winter tires that are pretty old ( for tires) that they run only for a few months a year and the last quite a while in storage compared to ones kept on year round. The ones I just replaced only started to show their age last Fall after 8 years and 40,000 miles. (garage kept) I just buy M/S for our cars and they work for most conditions.

That’s pretty good life, 9 years. Even with Toyota’s buy 3 get 1 free tire deals it still cost me a pretty penny to put tires on my Tundra.
