Most people would never consider tires as a Christmas gift. However, tires do make an excellent gift, especially if you buy a complete set for the vehicle your loved one drives all the time. Here are three reasons why new tires make an excellent holiday present.
It seems odd, but tires are on sale for special prices and with special promotional offers right now. You can get a great deal on a set of tires for almost any vehicle. Furthermore, the cost of a set of tires on sale, including special promotional offers, often equals what you would probably spend on a family member anyway.
New Tires Increase Driver Safety
New tires do not blow out unless they hit extremely large, sharp, and jagged objects. As such, new tires will not blow out on the highway, and the person driving a vehicle with new tires will be much safer driving that vehicle. What else says you really care about someone's safety than a set of tires for the car or truck they drive every day? When you look at it that way, it is easy to see why tires make such a loving and thoughtful gift. If your loved one uses a truck for work, new tires can be that much more helpful.
If the Recipient Cannot Afford New Tires, but Needs Them, They Can Get Them from You
Sometimes you just need a helping hand with car maintenance. When your gift recipient needs new tires on their vehicle, but cannot afford them, giving them something he/she needs such that they do not have to worry about that expense is the right thing to do. If the recipient is also asking for new tires, that makes this gift all the better to give.
How to Get the Right Tires on the Vehicle to Surprise the Recipient
Of course, after you make the choice to buy the recipient this particularly unique gift, the next step is to get the car into the tire garage to get the tires installed. If you are married to the recipient, this is easy enough to do. You just set up an appointment for the tires, and then ask to borrow your spouse's or significant other's vehicle for a couple of hours. If the recipient is a different family member that does not live in your home, you might have to set this up in a different but creative way.
