T & T Tire
I was traveling with my kids, on a five-hour trip to the beach. A front tire started losing air up in the mountains and I stopped in Packwood to have the problem diagnosed. They made it clear they didn't like to help "people from Seattle" passing through and said he could fix the leak for $45 if I could wait awhile. Feeling bad for asking and like I was about to be ripped off, when my daughter said, "Just go." We drove to the Chevron station and asked if they had an air machine. The lady said "It's not turned on yet" and just stood there. No offer of help or "We'll get it turned on so you can be on your way!" They turned it on when I asked, I filled my tire, and continued to drive. An hour or so later, I pulled off at Longview/Kelso and found T&T Tire. I explained the problem and was told cheerfully, "You need that patched, we'll do that right now, no problem! It's what we do." I was back on the road within 15-20 minutes -- and they only charged me $10 to boot! Thank you, T&T Tire!!
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.
