Black Friday is usually thought of in terms of cheap deals on TVs and DVD players, but it’s also the single busiest day of the year for most tire shops. It’s the perfect storm of both a busy shopping day in general, and Thanksgiving’s second purpose, which is to remind you that winter is around the corner, and those bald hoops on your Forester aren’t going to get you through another season.
We’ve searched around for good deals on tires this Black Friday, and here’s what we’ve come up with. Some of these are offered by the manufacturer, and some deals by the retailer.
This is a pretty crazy deal especially if you have all kinds of other conveyances in the garage, including UTVs, ATVs, motorcycles and even bicycles.

The cool thing here is that you can bundle your car or light truck tires with Michelin tires for your motorcycle, side-by-side or even your bicycle.

Almost all tire brands have some kind of rebate at some point or another. Check the major online tire sites, but also go directly to the website of your favorite tire manufacturer and search for rebates there.
Right now, the Michelin/BFGoodrich rebate is tremendous, especially if you have other vehicles -- including bicycles -- that use Michelin or BFGoodrich tires. You can bundle any tire purchase to receive the rebate.
You purchase your tires from any tire retailer, and then with a valid, dated receipt, you submit your paperwork to the manufacturer. Some manufacturers have online portals where you submit your receipt, while others make you mail it in. Then, at a later date, you’ll receive your rebate, usually in the form of a prepaid credit card.
It depends, but you’ll usually receive your rebate in four to six weeks.
