Walmart - Tire & Lube Express
This location drives me nuts when it comes to customer service. The staff is not consistent enforcing policies especially when it comes to WIC, couponing and price matching. I usually find myself heading to checkout with only 3 lanes open and all the lines are 5+ people deep. The service desk is never fully staffed so you wait forever in those lines too. I also dont like hearing them cuss, complain that someone called in sick, or complain they havent gotten their break yet. (which is them smoking outside the grocery side entrance, it blows right into your face walking in the door :( )The only thing that keeps me returning is the fact they price match and have lower priced items. Guess you have to put up with the poor service- they are prolly only getting paid minimum wage. I also like this location is smaller then say the Prospect ST Champaign location so if you have to get a box fan and a gallon of milk you arent walking a football field.

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.
