Mopar buy 3 winter tires get 1 free (scam)

I really hate when dealerships do this. I called my local dealer (close to Toronto) and asked for a price on winter tires for my 14 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited, tires only no rims.

I believe he quoted me around 260 canadian per tire, I forget which brand now because I didn't bother buying them. I then got something in the mail saying buy 3 get 1 free event. I called back asking for the same tire price, of course it should be the same price right? No, he quoted me $310 for the same tire. He actually said you are better off paying for the 4 tires and using the rebates they offer which wasn't much.

Nice scam, so in fact, this is not a buy 3 get one free deal at all. A couple of other tire places quoted me around $1200 installed, balanced, etc. just for winter tires, no rims.

I am thinking of just using all-seasons this year in Toronto with 4x4. Has anyone driven with their all-season tires in 4x4 mode in the winter. How was it?

Yeah
Tire places pull that crap all the time

I recently bought a set of new blizzaks off eBay for 644$ shipped for all 4

I called a bunch of tire places and got deal offers etc that were about 1000-1100$ usd for 4

Here's where I got mine

The beginning of Last winter I ran all seasons , mid way through I threw on a set of snows for predictability when stopping in snow and peace of mind.

I drove through 2 horrible winters in buffalo, ny with the Forteras. Trying for one more. Just slow down with braking and turning. I would prefer snow tires but am sick of switching over tires from my last car.

hmm I think that might have just been your local dealer scamming you. I had my dealer work me up a price not long ago on tires for the buy 3 get 1 free and their price per tire was competitive with local tire places and they did indeed take off the price of one tire from the total. It actually ended up being a very good deal they also would allow for tires to be ordered not just the only in stock. Maybe try a different dealer.
