About Kenwood Tire - internet tire installation

My Tire Rack Problem

Tire Rack is an online tire store. They make it really easy for you to buy tires and their prices are lower than you’ll find locally.

But unless you have a local tire shop that’ll install “customer-supplied tires”, you’re pretty much on your own. That’s because most of Tire Rack’s touted “8,500 Independent Recommended Installers” are national chains and company-owned stores offering you a $13 mount and balance to get you in the door, ripe for the upsell.

I did a search for Tire Rack recommended installers, my choices were Pep Boys, Monroe, and Firestone company-owned stores?

Think about it: A Firestone store installing Firestone tires that you bought on the internet, is not going to be a hassle-free service experience.

Yes, Tire Rack is a good place to start looking for tires but watch out for their chain-store recommended installers who’ll treat you like a $10 oil change customer.

My advice is to research your next tires online then call your local tire shop. Most of the time you’ll come out ahead buying locally.

I hope this helps you in the realm of online tire buying and internet tire installation – Stay safe and let me know if you have any questions or comments.
