Checkbook’s undercover shoppers found big price differences—sometimes differences of $400 or more—among local suppliers for the sets of tires we shopped. Want to find the best tire bargains? Read on.

Here's advice on how to find the proper tires for your vehicle, including a discussion of performance characteristics, tread wear, and notes on the available sources for ratings information.

Whichever tires you buy, a key to getting the highest possible value is to maintain them properly. Here are some guidelines.

When your car breaks down or acts up, it’s a major inconvenience—and can be a major expense. That’s why finding a good mechanic or repair shop is so important. Our evaluations of hundreds of area shops will help you find great service and low prices.

Our price ratings of shops will help you find shops that charge fair prices. Don’t assume using a low-cost shop means having to accept low-quality work: We found that top shops are more likely to offer low prices as lousy shops.

If your car is still covered under a new-car warranty, you’ll want to use a dealership for repairs. But if your car is no longer under warranty, you’re probably best off using an independent shop.
