Ray's tire exchange
I had 4 old tires on my car from Les Schawb. Les Schawb is a great tire store but I didn't have the money at the time to replace all the tires. I had 3 decent tires and one worn tire that was about to blow and was a safety hazzard. So I checked around and the best deal around was at Ray's Tire exchange. For less than $50.00, I could get one used tire installed and balanced on my car. So I went for that deal. The problem was that they accidently installed the wrong size tire. The tire was the same rim size but it was larger in circumferance than the rest of the tires I had on the car. If you do that on a drive wheel you can mess up your transmission or differential. Luckly it was not on a drive wheel. I went back the next day anyway and asked for an exchange. They gave me some hassel for a while and suggested that I had come in with a different tire than the one they had installed yesterday. I explained that it was no big deal and I just wanted to exchange the tire for one that is the same size as the rest of the tires on my car. Eventually they did exchange the wrong sized tire for one that was the right size, although they did it kind of reluctantly.So my advice is if your looking for a cheap tire inbetween full replacements, try Ray's tire. Keep an eye on them though. Inspect the tire before they put it on and make sure that it is the right size and a tire that will work for you. It will save you hassel later.

Glen & Jesus have been taking care of our family car tire needs for years. They have ALWAYS had the lowest prices in Reno for good quality tires, WITHOUT having to pay $100 extra for mounting & balance fees like most places. They are nice people and care about their customers!

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.
