    Stoking inflation

    Jan 2009: 4 new Michelin tires PMXV4 @ $114 ea
    Mnt/bal 4x$10 total price incl. fees, taxes, minus $70 coupon: $472.
    Feb 2012: 4 new Michelin tires PMXV4 @ $129 ea
    Mnt/bal 4x$14 total price incl. fees, taxes, minus $70 coupon: $550.
    3 years later tires are 12% more expensive, labor is 40% more expensive.
    Like many I almost automatically give my business to Costco because I believe I get a great deal on quality products and services. I accept the limited product selection for that peace of mind. And I wish I got 40% more for my labor where I work, yeah right.
    Lesson learned: Compare prices. Do not assume Costco is the low price leader. Maybe for the $1.50 hot dog. Not for many other things. Next set of tires I will see what the competition has.
