Do I need to buy 4 tires at once?
On an AWD vehicle or one with a conventional four-wheel-drive system, all four tires would ideally be replaced at the same time so they all have the same amount of traction as well as the same diameter. On a front- or rear-wheel-drive vehicle, similar guidelines apply.
Should I replace 2 tires or 4?
If you are looking to replace all-wheel drive tires, we recommend replacing all four at once. While it may be tempting to replace only two at a time, mixing new and worn tires can create a size difference from front to back, which can lead to damage to your vehicle.
How much does it cost to get tires changed?
Tire Size and Vehicle Make Standard economy cars and sedans are usually the cheapest to replace, running anywhere from $50 to $75 each on average. If you drive a sporty car or a large SUV, those prices can jump significantly higher and may cost you anywhere from $100 to $300 apiece, sometimes even higher.
How long should 4 new tires last?
It may be tentative, but tires do have an expiration date. There is a general consensus that most tires should be inspected, if not replaced, at about six years and should be absolutely be swapped out after 10 years, regardless of how much tread they have left.
Do you need an alignment after replacing tires?
We recommend an alignment after the installation of new tires. This helps you get the most life from your new tires. Wheel alignment checks are always advised after a significant impact or uneven tire wear is detected.
How much should I spend on tires?
General pricing guidelines for new tires: Inexpensive tires will generally be in the range of $50 – $150 each. Moderately priced tires will usually be in the range of $100 – $300 each. High-end tires (ultra-high performance or specialty off-road tires ) can be $300 – $1000 each.
Should new tires be in front or back?
According to Tire Review, new tires should always go in the back. Rear tires provide the vehicle stability, and if they have little tread, then stability is lost.
How do I know when to get new tires?
Place a penny head first into several tread grooves across the tire. If you always see the top of Lincoln’s head, your treads are shallow and worn. If this is the case, your tires need to be replaced. If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining.
Is it OK to have mismatched tires?
A car with mismatched front and back tires should still be usable, especially if it is a two wheel drive vehicle. If the tires are different sizes then they may also wear at different rates, and you’ll be shopping for new tires sooner than you think. Functionally, mismatched tires will wear out at different rates.
Are Walmart tires good?
Overall, Walmart is a great place to shop for tires both online and in-store. You’ll find a great selection of popular tire brands and some of the lowest average per-tire prices compared to other popular tire stores. And installation is cheaper at Walmart than nearly anywhere else.

Does Discount Tire negotiate price?
Yes they will. In the past tirerack.com and tirecrawler.com used to be nice online sites where you could find tires, estimate shipping, and discountt would match. Lately I’ve noticed either the online sites have upped their priced or Discount has gotten more reasonable because the delta has closed quite a bit.
