re: Tires for a 2011

I've purchased all my tires from Discount for nearly 20 years and never gone wrong. If there is any problem, in my experience they stand behind the product and will make it right. If you go to Firestone, I suspect you'll only be able choose from what Firestone makes. At Discount you can select tires from many different manufacturers to fit your needs and budget. If you have a problem, there are way more Discount stores than Firestone. Just make sure of 2 things: (1) get the same size tire that was the original equipment on your car so you don't have any problems with your anti-lock brakes or speedo and (2) make sure they torque them properly which they normally should do so you can actually get the lug nuts off if you have a flat.

re: Tires for a 2011

I get my tires from Sam's club, usually good prices. For a 2011 Camaro LS/LT, it shows tire size 245/55R18, not 235. Sam's has 3 choices, Radial TA is one, Goodyear RS-A and Eagles are the others. Goodyear's show $80 off for a set of 4, but they all have to be special ordered. Luck and welcome!

I don't think discount tires is on this coast. I used them in Az but was told there are none here. I guess a quick google search would be in order.

re: Tires for a 2011

You can use their online site, Home - Discount Tire Direct . They will ship them to you for free and then you use a local installer (like NTB or such) to install the tires.

re: Tires for a 2011

Good advice so far.

Keep in mind that Jersey has plenty of local discount tire shops as well as the usual main stream like Goodyear, Firestone, ETD, Straus, Sears, etc. Any one of them will sell you what your Camaro needs and you won't have to lift a finger.

If you buy online the purchase price is usually better but other cost like mounting, installation, disposal of the old tires, new stems, etc. will all add to the price afterwards.

Your Camaro may have the air monitor system. The sensors will have to be check to see if the battery in them is still good. On a six year old car it's probably a good idea to just replace them. The air monitoring system will then have to be reset so the system "learns" were each air pressure sensor is located. Your manual tells you how to do it, but a good shop will do it for you as part of the install.

re: Tires for a 2011

If she's not getting a TPMS error, the sensors should still be OK. That being said, this is a prime time to invest in some new ones since the old ones may be on their last legs and they may break when they are changing the tires. You can usually find new ones on Ebay for around 75 bucks or so for four.

Re: Tires for a 2011

The only shop/dealer resetting anything on the vehicles I own is the BMW dealer when they change oil & filter in my M3 annually.
If the shop/store resets devices, be a repeat customer to them.

Re: Tires for a 2011

Jennifer, If I was buying tires for a Camaro I would be looking at the Nitto Motivo tires. The are a high performance street tire and have a 60,000 mi warranty. You can even order them from Jeg's High Performance online. They are on sale right now with free shipping. Personally the Firestone brand would be the last tire I would put on my car. The Bf Goodrich T/A Radial is a great tire I use to run them on my Monte Carlos years ago. The Nitto brand is for sports cars today. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...45&ar=55&rd=18
