Americas Tire in San Diego, CA with Reviews -

This is pretty much my go-to used tire shop in San Diego. If you don't know what you're looking for, or how to make a good decision on a used tire, do your research before going. In general, there is a great deal of competition locally for sales of used tires, and all of the shops want your business and want to clear their inventory of 'dog' tires. That said, there should be a line - don't try to sell your customers a tire that won't meet their needs. You'll generally be safe if you stick to the name brands. Buying an off-brand, which is more often than not what you'll find among the orphaned inventory at a used tire shop - is a recipe for disaster. I go to this shop because I know that the staff there do a great job at installing tires - they don't do slapdash work. Go there knowing what will and won't work for you in terms of a tire(s) and you'll be glad you did. These guys do know their business.

El Guero Tire Shop
Honest, ethical and fair prices. I always bring my family's cars here for new tires, alignment and mechanical repairs, they also do muffler service. The place is clean and you can wait while they do the job or just leave your car and return when finished, I've never had a problem leaving my car overnight because the place is secured. Ask for Pedro he's the boss.

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.
