A DealCrunch community member asked...

Where can I get a good deal on tires?

Worn tires present a danger when it comes to navigating through less-than-ideal weather conditions, like rain and snow. The tried and true penny test — where you insert Lincoln head first between the treads to see if he’s still covered — remains a great way to gauge the wear on your tires, though many of the newer tires these days have built-in tread wear indicators.

We’ve done the research to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle, for the season, and for a fair price. Luckily, there are some great tire deals to take advantage of, so use the navigation below to jump to what matters most for your next purchase.

Best Cheap New Tire Deals

If you’re looking for the cheapest price on new tires, you have several options. Many suggest going to a wholesale or warehouse club to get tires because of the generous warranty policies and on-site mechanics provided. However, not everyone has access or membership to these types of stores, so we continued to hunt down the best tire deals and found some great tire offers online.

Discount Tire Direct

4.8/5.0 ★★★★★

Discount Tire Direct offers free shipping on all tire purchases, which can typically save you an additional $20 per tire if you were having the tires sent to your house. However, other online tire dealers allow for free pickup from a local distribution center or can ship to a local installation affiliate. The team at Discount Tire Direct is dedicated to providing the lowest price — apart from clearance and closeout deals — so if you find a better price simply fill out the “Found it lower?” form associated with the tire you’d like to purchase.

Tire Buyer

4.3/5.0 ★★★★

Once you input the type of tire you’re looking for — either by size or by your specific make and model vehicle — you’ll be taken to a search results page where Tire Buyer enables sorting by lowest price. Any special offers will be showcased within each tire listing when viewing “All” tires for your search, which we found more helpful than using the specific “Deals” tab. For added savings, Tire Buyer also offers free shipping — sometimes even same day — to local installation partners across the country.

Best Wheel & Tire Package Deals

During your hunt for the best tire deal, you’re sure to come across package deals, including those for new wheels or rims. Changing out your wheels and tires provides a level of customization while also giving your ride a different feel.

For example, some trucks may swap wheels and tires for off-road excursions, while a car’s performance can be enhanced by choosing different diameter wheels than what the factory suggests. We found two tire dealers that offered the best deals on these types of packages.

1

Tire Rack

4.6/5.0 ★★★★★

We found Tire Rack to offer a great selection of tire and wheel packages online with an easily navigable interface to help you find the right package for your vehicle. You can search by brand and other parameters, or you can use the wizard to track down the factory-suggested wheels and tires for the make and model of your car, truck, or SUV. If you liked the way your car performed when it was new, or when your tires were last replaced, then your safest bet is to simply replace them. But if you want to change the ride or performance of your vehicle, you may want to spend some time browsing and comparing the options. Tire Rack runs several specials each month to discount new tires, including package deals on wheels and tires.

Pep Boys

3.6/5.0 ★★★★

What’s really interesting about the Pep Boys website is it offers a wheel visualizer that allows you to input your make and model, then compare the way new wheels look on your vehicle. You can also browse specials — from coupons to clearance to rebates — for wheel and tire package deals in the savings center of the site. The “buy more, save more” adage definitely applies to Pep Boys as you add tires and wheels to your cart for checkout. Typically, you can easily snag a buy three, get the fourth free for both tires and wheels at Pep Boys.

Best Car Tire Deals (2-Tire & 4-Tire Set)

You can unlock deeper tire discounts when you shop for sets, such as a pair of tires or a full 4-tire set.

If you happen to run over glass or a nail and puncture just one of your tires, replacing that single tire is best. But, if your tires have worn pretty evenly, then it’s best to just replace them all if at least one of them no longer passes the penny test and the tread on the others looks to be thinning.

Tire Rack

4.6/5.0 ★★★★★

TireRack is great for buying sets of car tires because available rebates and discounts are advertised alongside the price for quick comparisons. You can select the number of tires you need to buy and a subtotal will be automatically generated with any applicable tire deals calculated so you can see the price before and after the special. You can usually save the most on complete 4-tire sets with manufacturer rebates. And, if you’re looking to save on shipping, Tire Rack offers free pickup from the dealer’s distribution centers.

Sam's Club

3.8/5.0 ★★★★

While some of the tire availability and pricing depends on your local club’s stock, as well as the stock at the brand’s distribution centers, the great thing about Sam’s is it offers regular discounts of $80 off top-rated 4-tire sets. You can even take advantage of those deals online by shopping the site for the tires that best suit your vehicle, then heading into your local club for pick-up and installation just a few days later. We typically find that you can get a better price buying the sets with the $80-off deal than when buying the cheapest four tires available.

Best Truck, SUV, and 4×4 Tire Deals

The biggest factor that determines the proper tires for your truck or SUV is the load-carrying capacity (LCC) of the rubber. If you plan to be hauling more than just your family to and from home, work, school, and other errands, you’ll want to take a look at the ratings for both the tires and the wheels you’re considering. Below, we’ve identified the best stores to find truck tire deals.

4 Wheel Parts

4.4/5.0 ★★★★

What we like about 4 Wheel Parts is the variety of accessories offered specifically for trucks, SUVs, and 4×4 vehicles. Not only can you find tires and wheels, but also exterior parts like light kits and running boards. Once you’re at the tires page, you can sort by the usual specs such as vehicle make and model as well as common sizes, but you also have a little more control since you can search by just rim diameter or tire height. Plus, any special offers are listed right in the tire results.

BJ's Wholesale Club

4.2/5.0 ★★★★

As with the online tire centers of other warehouse stores, you’ll need to select the club nearest you to find pricing on tires. You can easily search by tire size or vehicle specs, and, once you load results, the BJs site allows for side-by-side comparisons of up to four tires. Comparison points include load capacity and rating as well as pricing and warranty details. You’ll need to check the “Offers” tab to see if any additional deals might apply to the tires you’re interested in.

Best Winter & Snow Tire Deals

When it comes to different seasons — from the rainy summers in Florida to the icy winters in Minnesota — choosing the right tires can make a life-saving difference. Based on the temperature and the precipitation, you’ll want to make sure your tires can grip the road regardless of weather conditions.

It’s important to note that the label “all-season” tires does not necessarily mean you’ll get the best of both summer and winter tires in one, so be sure you understand what weather-specific tires offer before you buy.

1

Sears

4.1/5.0 ★★★★

Ordering tires online from Sears.com is easy, and the site even allows you to select installation as part of your purchase for just $20 a tire, which is a similar fee to shipping costs elsewhere without installation. When you choose installation it’s like the popular buy online pick up in store option, so you won’t be charged shipping. From the Sears automotive page, simply click through to the tires page and narrow your search to winter tires to shop the seasonal selection.

Tires Plus

3.9/5.0 ★★★★

At Tires Plus, you can easily shop tires online by type, including winter tires. The winter tires page compares several key points including noise level, traction, and ride comfort. Once you’ve decided on a tire, you can shop the size you need by clicking the “Get a Quote” button and entering your vehicle specifications. While specials aren’t listed on the tire ads themselves, you can see all available deals on the coupons page, which you can easily get to from anywhere on TiresPlus.com since it’s right in the site navigation at the top.

Best Motorcycle & ATV Tire Deals

Motorcycle tires tend to wear disproportionately, with the rear tire needing replacement well before the front tire. And when it comes to other sport vehicles, like ATVs, tires wear based on how hard and how often you ride.

You’ll want to keep in mind the specifications for your vehicle as proper tires determine performance — and safety. And remember, you shouldn’t place car tires on your motorcycle, so take a look at these deals for motorcycle and ATV tires to keep your ride smooth.

Costco

4.0/5.0 ★★★★

Costco offers a wide selection of ATV tires easily sorted by price on the warehouse club’s website. Shipping and handling fees are included in the tire price shown online. Each ATV tire listing includes reviews, if available, and you can even compare up to four different tires — by size, brand, and description — side by side when you check the box within the main tire listing of your search results.

Walmart

3.8/5.0 ★★★★

The auto section of Walmart.com is clearly labeled for quick access to ATV and motorcycle tire deals, but mixed into those listings are also tires for some utility vehicles, such as lawnmowers and golf carts. As long as you know what you’re looking for, we found that Walmart offers great deals on motorcycle tires and labels which items you can buy online and pick up in store as well as which items ship to you for free.

Shop Online Sales for Big Discounts on Your Tire Purchase

Regardless of where you live — Florida, Minnesota, or even Alaska’s backcountry — tire upkeep should play an important role in your overall vehicle maintenance plan. Your tires determine a lot about the ride and safety of your vehicle, so be sure you’re keeping them properly inflated and checking for wear regularly.

Now that you know where to get the best deals on tires, you’ll be ready to shop and save the next time you need new rubber for your ride.

Note: We compared pricing for the common car tire size of P215/55R16 and the common truck tire size of P235/75R15. Because so many factors go into the performance of motorcycle and ATV tires, we looked for the lowest price available. Prices accurate on the day of publication, but subject to change.
