We recently went through a pricing comparison with some local dealers.

Pace BMW - they were charging $2900 for snow tires and stock rims with free storage, but they were charging $75 each time to put your car onto a lift to do each changeover. They basically overcharge a lot on the tires/rims. The $75 x 2 times a year ends up being significant too. Our service ends up being cheaper and you also have the flexibility to get nicer looking aftermarket rims.

Manhattan BMW - they're trying to charge $1000 for storage which is plain nuts.

$100 per season is not bad, but you're still having to go to them versus our service where we come to you. We may cost more, but it's the convenience that you're also buying.

Looks like this winter is shaping up to be a bad winter. Another snow storm rolling through the NY metro area.
