These days, there are almost always manufacturer’s rebates available on one or several major brands.  If you’re shopping for a specific brand, like say Michelin, Cooper or Goodyear – keep your eyes peeled for these national rebates.  You’ll often find that when one store offers these national rebates, they all will.

Next, you need to look at the value that the tire store adds to your purchase. 

  • Do they offer free lifetime balancing and rotation?  If not, then that tire deal that seemed nice and cheap will cost you as your tires will wear unevenly and need to be replaced.

  • How much do they charge to align your vehicle?   You should never put new tires on a misaligned vehicle.  Again, they’ll wear out faster and may not operate safely.   

If you’re on a tight budget and searching for the best deals – there are other excellent tire brands out there that aren’t necessarily household names. 

Or, heck, maybe drive a little farther and go to Tire Discounters?

How to find the best automotive service deals near me?

Automotive dealerships have done a great job in pulling the wool over our eyes.  How many of us are convinced that we need to go there and pay tons more for automotive service – because if we don’t our warranty might not be valid. 

Uh-uh.  Tire Discounters, and other reputable automotive service companies are qualified to perform all the maintenance services on your vehicle. Manufacturer’s warranties will honor that work.  That means that you can shop around for best service deals from shops you trust.

A good way to gauge the quality and integrity of a service shop is to ask them to inspect your vehicle’s brakes, alignment, or whatever service you think may be needed.  Often, and always at Tire Discounters, these inspections are free.  The results of these inspections should be documented, usually with print- outs that the technician will review with you.

The best automotive service deals from each shop are usually posted on their website.  Be wary of deals that offer a small dollar amount “off” the “regular” price.  Shop around and you might find that their “sale” price is higher than you’d pay elsewhere.  Like, oh, say, at Tire Discounters.

The speed rating of a tire is based on U.S. Government standards for reaching and sustaining a specified speed. Typically, a tire with a higher speed rating results in better handling. Speed ratings apply only to the tire itself, and not to a particular vehicle. Putting a tire rated for a certain speed on a vehicle does not mean that the vehicle can be safely operated at the tire's rated speed.

The load range on a tire helps determine its ability to contain air pressure and its overall strength. Ranges are expressed using a number and the higher the number, the stronger the tire. These measurements are primarily for light trucks and SUV’s.

Tread depth is the distance between the top of the tread rubber to the bottom of the tire's deepest grooves.  In the United States, tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch.

A tire’s maximum load is the maximum amount of weight the tire is designed to hold. The tire’s load carrying capacity is directly related to the tire’s size and amount of inflation pressure that is actually used. Each load range has a assigned air pressure identified in pounds per square inch (psi) at which the tire's maximum load is rated.

A tire’s maximum inflation pressure (PSI) is the highest "cold" inflation pressure that the tire is designed to contain. When measuring a tire’s max PSI, it is important the tire is "cold," because warmer temperatures can cause the tire pressure to temporarily increase resulting with inaccurate readings. This measurement should only be used when called for on the vehicle’s tire placard or in the vehicle’s owners manual.

The mileage warranty of a tire indicates the number of miles that a tire is estimated to last. If a tire fails to last for the number of miles indicated by the warranty, the customer will be given credit from the tire manufacturer toward a new tire based on how many miles short of the estimate the tire fell. Some restrictions apply. 

The total width of the tire, including any raised features on the sidewall. 

This is how many layers of rubber and other materials are in the tire.  

The represents the smallest and widest size wheels that are recommended by the tire manufacturer for the tire to be mounted on. 



The measurement, in inches, from rim flange to the other rim flange. 

The maximum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto. 

The minimum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto.  

A tire's section width (also called "cross section width") is the measurement of the tire's width from its inner sidewall to its outer sidewall (excluding any protective ribs, decorations or raised letters) at the widest point. 

What makes up a tire; each ply, the sidewall, the tread, and bead.  

This number will tell you how well the tire will disperse heat buildup. 

This is how much weight a tire is rated to hold.
