Our beloved Governor Jim McGreedy has given us a tax, err..fee on all new tires sold in NJ. It's $1.50 per tire. Here's the best part. The tax, err...fee also includes tires already mounted on every new vehicle sold here, and that means the spare, too. You gotta love it.

what if you get your tires out of state? Or do you have a lot of tire slashings there and the guy is trying to get some money out of it? Oh well thats to bad move to Idaho :D . Just then you pay income tax :suspect:

If you buy your tires or anything else out of state, you're suppose to report it on your state income tax form and pay 6% sales tax on it. McGreedy gets us coming and going.

It gets better. McGreedy is aslo going to change car registration to four years at a time, so if you get rid of your car early or if your lease is for three years, you're beat out of the extra cash you spent.

A buck 50 isn't too bad. We pay seven dollars for each new tire, and when you throw them away, you can't put them in a land fill anymore, you have to take them to a garage, etc. and pay another seven dollars per tire for proper disposal! They call this "environmental tax" but what they are doing with it other than pocketing the money is the question.

how much is the car registration in NJ. here in PA we pay 36.00$ a year. so depending on how much it is you might be better off.
and at the shop im in we charge 2.50 a tire for disposal.
