Big O Tires
We bought the store brand (legacy tour plus) tires. My wife likes them so far and the warranty is good. With their discount, it was the best deal I found in BG. However, when i got the car home, the tire went down within a few hours. They came out and got the tire, then returned with it aired up. Said the rim was a bit bent but that it shouldn't leak anymore. Later that day (Saturday) I went to check the tire pressure and I found that when I took the valve stem cap off, it was leaking. I put it on as tight as I could but I was still had a slow leak. I had to wait until monday to take it in. They had to replace the tpms valve stem. No cost to me obviously because I didn't have a leak before I got new tires there. I guess I could give them fewer stars but they were friendly and they were quick to work on fixing the problem.

Westside Tires
I was seriously unimpressed with Westside because my husband and I bought a tire from them. When we came out to leave the next morning the tire was complete flat. But we did call Westside and they agreed that if we can get it back to Westside they will fix it, if it can't be fixed they'll replace it.

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
