For tires, except for the long wait-times in our area, Costco is superb.
Hint....once your tires are in, you can either make an appointment or show up about 15 minutes before they open, be the first person through the door to get to the tire service area and take advantage of the first com, first served walk-in hour before appointments start. :)

Oh I didn't know there is a first-come-first-served hour before appointments start. I got to try that. Thanks so much!

On the Fumoto valve, remember - you are shrinking the drain hole down to 1/4" or so with this valve. Plan on the drain portion taking half an hour or more. I had put them on my Honda based on the buzz but didn't have all day to do a change of oil so I chucked mine.

Check with your local Costco next time you happen to be there to insure they have the same policy. But I find that Costco is generally pretty consistent across the board on policies.

Just did my 3rd change with the valve installed. This 0w-20 flows pretty quick. Whole process was done in 20 minutes including driving it up on ramps and getting lunch and refilling.
