Discount Tire
Evidently someone put a glass bottle underneath my tire and I proceeded to back over it, which left a gash in my tire enough to hear the seep. Discount tire was the closest tire place and I was in an emergency while on the clock for work, so I pulled in for help. Help is what I didn't receive even if I wanted to pay for it.Because the cut in the tire was right on the edge of the side wall, Discount tire would not service me. My only choice there was to buy a whole new tire, which is of course not practical to a common folk like myself.Discount tire was kind enough to put some air in my tire and send me on down the road, and luckily I had a friend in town to go to.He recommended North Hall Tire. When I got to North Hall Tire, not only did they service me quickly, but they did it for FREE.. Of course I tipped.I would say that the lesson here is to support our local tire shops, because they'll actually support the community and be there when we need them. Corporate places like Discount Tire just won't be there when you really need them.

North Hall Tire and Wheel
North hall tire has been able to beat every tire store I have called by at least 50 bucks for the same tire. They do amazing work Iv had them put on my lift, aline my front end, rebuild my front end and I got new wheels and tires threw these guys. Personally my bumper was a little bent so my tire scrubbed and before I even had to ask they had done told me and said that they would fix it right there on the spot just because they didn't want me to mess up my new tires. They will always have my business.

Beaver Tire
A small family business. Very reasonably priced and great people to do business with. I highly recommend them.
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.
