How much does it cost to put 4 tires on a car?
Expect to pay: $13 to $45 dollars per tire industry-wide, depending on the size of the tire. Mounting (installing tires on to the rims) and balancing (adding weights to make sure the wheel weighs the same all around) varies widely for cars, SUVs, and light trucks, and is highly dependent on the size of the tire.
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.
How much does it cost to replace one tire?

Do I 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. Also, get a check annually, or twice yearly if you typically travel on rough roads.
Are Walmart tires good?

Should I change 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 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.
How many miles are tires good for?

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.
