Hi everyone, this is my first post.
I have 2007 Forester L.L. Bean edition, my 2nd Forester and it won't be my last. 130K miles.
I need a new set of tires and I'm in a very budget conscious place and could use some advice.
I don't drive much at all anymore since I work mostly from home and live close to most places I do drive, and I live in Los Angeles so don't need to consider weather (much). So the tires will be for minimal driving and safety, since the ones I have are getting thin.
I've been quoted $408 for 4 Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires, including installation. That seems decent, but I'm wondering if there is a good brand that is good for Foresters that I could consider at a lower price point. I'd LOVE to get out the door $300-$350 if I could.
And is tire purchasing something where waiting til Black Friday would help? (Sorry, I'm a serious novice here -- the only times I bought tires before, I had a friend who hooked me up at a tire place that is no longer there, so I've never had to do this).
Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
