The Internet makes buying tires easy if you know what you’re looking for.
With a little research, online tire stores like TireRack, TireBuyer, TireAmerica, and SimpleTire can help you can make a good tire choice, and save you money.
The problem with buying tires online is that you need to find someone to install them for you.
At Kenwood Tire and Auto Service, we welcome internet tire installations, no matter where you buy them.
But other tire stores will do their best to make you regret buying your tires online.
How do you think Tire Rack’s “recommended installers”, who are the chain stores and franchises like Pep Boys that you were probably trying to avoid in the first place, will treat you when you show up with your own tires?
The best way to find a professional tire installer near you is to call around, read reviews, and ask for a recommendation.
I also recommend checking out the TireBuyer installers in your area, because they partner with local independent internet tire installers like us.
At Kenwood Tire & Auto Service we’ll professionally install your tires no matter where you buy them.
Our customer-supplied tire installation includes replacing the tire, high-speed balancing including road-force optimizer, hand-torquing the wheel nuts, and resetting the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)
For most vehicles, we charge $30-40 per tire for internet tire installation.
Stay safe and let me know if you have any questions or comments about customer-supplied and internet tire installation.
