Local Business Offering At-Cost Tires For Student Drivers

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 11, 2020

A Cedar business is offering to sell new tires to student drivers at cost to help promote local safety on the roads.

Leelanau Auto is launching the program in 2020 to offer new tires at cost to students and parents (for student-driven cars). The promotion is not limited, but rather a "new policy designed to help local students stay safe by allowing them (to access) more affordable tires," according to the business.

"Good quality tires can be a burdensome expense for many drivers, and especially young drivers in our area," says owner Ryan Thompson. "When thinking about how we can help young drivers stay safe, we thought offering tires at cost is the way we could help the most.”

Students can call or text message Leelanau Auto at 231-835-0686 to schedule an appointment for a new tire fitting. A current student ID is required in the name of the driver in order to qualify for at-cost tire pricing. Installation and old tire disposal costs are available at regular rates.
