What Brand of Tires Should I Buy?

what brand of tires should i buyLike all things, we have such a wide selection in the United States. No where else on Earth will you find endless isles of toothpaste selections or paper towel choices. The same goes for tires. There are lots of choices when it comes to tires. Many brands are familiar such as Michelin and Goodyear. Other brands are less familiar like Nexen and Riken. So with so many choices, it begs the question: “What brand of tires should I buy?”

When making a decision about buying tires, especially used, most people care more about the quality, tread, and life of the tire that remains. Of course, they need to be the right size of tire for your vehicle as well. When it comes to selecting a specific tire brand, our best advice to you is to not get caught up in worrying about the brand. The most important thing is that we help you find the right tire for your vehicle and and most appropriate for your situation. Meaning, it’s equally important to explain to us the type of driving you do. A lot has to do with speed rating. Spend a few minutes talking to us and we’ll help determine what tire is best for you.

We are hear to answer your questions, so please ask. It’s important you get the tires you need and leave happy. Read some of our other “happy customer” reviews.

The TireZoo Extends Saturday Hours

The TireZoo HoursWe are happy to announce that we’ve extended our Saturday hours at both our Bloomington and Anoka locations to better serve our customers, beginning Saturday, May 17th. The TireZoo is open every Saturday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. No appointments are necessary, but allow us and yourself enough time to adequately assist you with your tire needs.

What Makes TireZoo Stand Out as a Premiere Used Tire Dealer in Minnesota

used tire dealers in minnesotaWith two locations and several decades of dedicated tire experience, the TireZoo offers a unique opportunity to vehicle owners looking to save money by buying quality used tires. The TireZoo has upwards of 20,000 used tires in inventory and is one of the largest used tire dealers in Minnesota and across the United States.

In order to be a used tire dealer that people trust, we know we have to have a vast supply of quality used tires from which to select. Without the high volume of tire brands and sizes we carry, customers wouldn’t be able to immediately find what they need. At the TireZoo, it doesn’t take us long to match a sole tire exactly. We can replace one, two, three or all four tires with matching, quality used tires. In many cases, the tires are like new, but for a fraction of the cost.

When other new tire dealers have constraints in regard to carrying used tires alongside new tires or tires of other brands, the TireZoo is able to carry both new and used tires in all major brands of tires. We recently added Mastercraft tires to our inventory of new and used tires. We also carry  Goodyear, Bridgestone, Kelly, Firestone, Michelin, Uniroyal, Continental, Kumho, Mast Associate, Fuzion, General, Mickey Thompson, Nexen, Nitto, Nanking, Pirelli, Riken, BCT, BF Goodrich, Falken and Cordovan.

Whether you are looking for new tires or one or more used tires to match others with the exact percentage of remaining tread, the TireZoo is ready to help!
