As you know we are taking a driving vacation this summer and outside of the regular packing responsibilities we need to do some preventative car maintenance too. Our tires were wearing funny and we brought them in to be rotated . The mechanic suggested the alignment was not done when the new tires were installed, causing the irregular wearing of the tires. I could not believe that was not part of the installation process and my tires got worn due to a simple step that I think should be part of regular installation. My husband and I are not comfortable riding cross country without new tires. As I search for a new location to replace our tires, I heard about Sam’s #DareToCompare offer.driving Vacations tips The Sam’s Club Dare to Compare all-in tire offer is truly unbeatable.

 How our “Dare to Compare” offer works: Bring a valid “all-in” quote from a tire sales and installation retailer to your Sam’s Club Tire and Battery Center service counter. The quote must be printed on dealer/retailer letterhead and dated within the past 7 business days. The tire must be the same brand, same line, same load index and speed rating (service description) as the tire intended for purchase at Sam’s Club. Sam’s Club carries some club-specific tire lines – in these cases, Sam’s Club will compare the club-specific tire line to the equivalent general-market tire line.
