Discount Tire
These guys are COMPLETE professionals from the time you walk in until the time you leave. It is obvious as they walk you out to your car initially to check tire depth and condition these guys care about what they do. They all seem to love their jobs. That makes me feel extremely comfortable and makes a big difference especially dealing with my car. The price was more than great, they even warranteed 2 tires for mileage issues. Remember they do not do alignments. They send you out to an amazing shop. My tires were only getting 20,000 mi so Mr. Mike Bell sent me right down the street to a shop East County Alignment, Amazing..Ever since my 1st visit my tires have worn perfect, they tripled my tire mileage. They made my experience extremely comfortable, in a shop makes a big difference..Thanks guys and you deserve the time it takes to type this. Others need to know how good of a tire shop you guys are

Express Tire
I have been here a couple of times and have always been treated above board. Chris and his team are professional from start to finish. I was just there again today with a nail in my tire and I was in and out in a flash. Problem solved . My Tacoma has found a home when I need one. Thanks Chris, your team is the best!
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.
