Hey there.... I know one thing I don't really like to spend money on... is a new set of tires.  I have close to 50 thousand miles on my car... and my husband said we have to start thinking about getting new tires. A set of New tires can cost you up to 200 dollars for each tire  wwwmoneyunder30.com suggests these tips for the best deal. 

 Buy all at once....It can be tempting to buy tires in pairs to save money, but you'll pay more in the long run due to uneven tire wear.

 Rotate your tires... Rotating your tires every 10,000 miles ensures your tires wear as evenly as possible, extending their life. Rotating should take a tire shop about 10 minutes. .

 Keep your car aligned... Have you ever  noticed your car pulling to one side on the highway? You car is out of alignment.  Most auto shops can do an alignment for less than $100 in 45 minutes or less.

- Shop around... Most people take their cars to the local tire specialty store and pay top dollar. You can easily find your car's tire size on the side of your current tire Use that number to get competitive prices on different shops, and online.

I hope these tips will help you out.... Drive safe and Don't meet by accident. :)
