Whether your goal is to get your car past the 100,000 mile mark, or to simply make sure your cruising tunes sound killer, we've got the right automotive deals for your ride. We found an all-time low price on a Pioneer receiver-speaker bundle, tires from Walmart, and more.
Pioneer In-Dash CD and iPod Receiver with Speakers
Store: Best Buy
Price: $79.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $100
Is It Worth It?: The receiver alone would be a sweet deal for this price, but this bundle also sets you up with four speakers from a legacy car stereo brand. Tied with our November mention and the lowest total price we've seen for this bundle, it includes one pair of 2-way 6 1/2" speakers and one pair of 3-way 6" x 9" speakers. The receiver kicks out 50 watts peak power into four channels (14 watts x 4 channels RMS) and comes with a detachable faceplate to discourage theft, along with pre-amp outputs, a front 3.5 mm auxiliary input, and more.
Goodyear Tires Sale
Price: From $58.50 with free in-store pickup
Is It Worth It?: It's time to roll out the savings, as this deal from Walmart features many Goodyear tire models at the lowest prices we could find. One tire deal that caught our attention is the Goodyear Viva 2 P185/65R15 86S Tire for $73.50 with free Site-to-Store pickup. It's a price low by $15 and this all-season tire is equally well suited for cars or minivans. It features segmented thread lugs, four wide circumferential grooves to deliver wet weather traction, and more. For more information on tires, read up on how to understand and buy car tires.
Crimestopper RS3-G3 Remote Car Engine Starter with Keyless Entry

Is It Worth It?: If you've ever dreamed of being able to deter car theft and start your car from up to 1500 ft. away, here's the device to do it. This remote starter kit comes in at the second-lowest total price we've ever seen, and ties with our mention from a week ago. It features a turbo timer, valet mode, and allows for the user to activate the horn or gain keyless entry to the vehicle.
Actron Pocketscan OBD II Diagnostic Code Scanner
Store: Advance Auto Parts
Price: $29.99 via coupon code "ES123" with free in-store pickup
Lowest By: $18
Is It Worth It?: Before you can snag this diagnostic code scanner, know how the promotion works. This item sells for $49.99, but to get it for $29.99, you have to pad your order over $50, then apply the above coupon code. (This Gardner-Wescott Lockwasher sells for 39 cents.) This scanner, simply put, reads diagnostic trouble codes from the on-board computers of 1996 and newer vehicles that are OBD II compliant by using a 16-pin connector cable that supplies data and power connections from your vehicle. It can also display your car's emission information.
Concept Chameleon Series 10.2" Overhead Car DVD Player
Store: Sonic Electronix
Price: $189.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $63
Is It Worth It?: Car DVD players are the kiddie pacifiers of the 21st century, especially for long road trips. This model features a 10.2" LCD screen, remote control, USB connectivity, and an SD card slot. It supports a slew of formats, including DVD, VCD, CD, CDR/RW, and MP4. It will not, however, support you in the event of a back seat brawl as Pookey Bear and Junior Bear fight over which episode of "Pokemon" to watch for the 200th time. That is what parents are for. [Sigh].
Looking for a lower-cost alternative? Walmart offers the XO Vision In-Dash 7" Touchscreen DVD/CD Receiver for $111.26 with 97-cent shipping. That's a low by $51. It supports DVD, DVD-R, CD-RW, MP3, WMA, AVI, DivX6, ands XviD formats, and delivers 85 watts to four channels. It also features a 7" motorized windscreen touchscreen display, a front USB connection, and AM/FM reception with 30 station presets.
