Dean's Tire Pros
Chuck is a great guy to work with. He kept me informed with timely updates the entire time he had my vehicle. Even though it took a little longer than expected due to the nature of the mechanical issue, he provided a loaner car for a very surprisingly low rate. It saved my wife and I a lot of headaches since we only had one other car. I have an older Jeep and I know that things can get weird when a vehicle has over 175k miles, but he fixed it! Chuck even had me drive it for a while before I paid to make sure I was happy with the job. Respect bud!

Walmart - Tire & Lube Express
I always shop at walmart and since i needed tires for two of my cars naturally i decided to get my tires done from there! So i took one car in to get the tires done. First i waited 2hrs to have it done. Then when i paid for the tires they didnt ask me if i wanted a warranty besides the one that comes with the manufacturer. When my car was finally ready i drove it home and parked the car! The next morning my brand new tire was flat! So i took the tire back there and they said that it was not repairable. Mind you i didnt run over anything hit a pothole etc. they said i needed to purchase another tire cause i didnt have the road hazard warranty. They called me a liar and were very rude. Needless to say i didnt give them anymore money and i will not be taking my 2nd car their either!!!
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.
