How to Save Money on Tires


There are a lot of ways to save money on new tires. The first thing you can do is make sure that the tires you buy are used. Just because they're not brand new doesn't mean they aren't in great shape. You can also look online for deals and discounts on the tires that you need, or ask your mechanic if he or she can give you a discount when they service your car.

Buy used tires

You may be able to save money by buying used tires online or at a tire shop.

  • If you buy them online, make sure that the seller has a good reputation and that his or her location is nearby.
  • Ask if there are any warranties on the tires and if they can be transferred to you.
  • If you buy from a shop, ask about any guarantees offered by the manufacturer and whether it will cover any problems with your car caused by these particular treads.

Buy your tires online

You can save money on tires by buying them online. There are a few ways you can do this:

  • Find the best online deals, coupons, and rebates
  • Search for the best price on your specific tire brand and model
  • Use a service like Tire Rack to find out how much you should be paying for tires in your area (and then compare prices between local shops)

Ask for a discount when you service your car.

Asking for the tire discount at service time is a great way to save money on your next set of tires. You'll also want to ask for discounts on all other services, such as oil changes and brake jobs. And when you get your transmission serviced? Ask for an additional tire discount!
