Tire City
I recently had Tire City install a set of Pirelli tires on my wife's SUV. She brought it to my attention when I got home from work that she noticed some scratches on one of the rims. Sure enough, there was a perfectly machined scratch around one entire rim. I returned to Tire City and spoke to Michael, the owner, a seemingly helpful person. He agreed that it wasn't caused by a curb or driving. He said that he would get back to me after reviewing the cameras in the shop. He called me back the next day and said that there wasn't any signs of negligence or of one of his technicians trying to hide it. Okay, well isn't it possible that it happened by accident and no one noticed the scratches if they were working quickly? I understand accidents happen but I just spent $1050 and got a ruined rim back in return! He offered me free future services that I will opt not to take as a repeat customer. This is totally unacceptable and I'll be looking elsewhere for my future tire needs!
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.
