Replacing Tires on a Leased Car

Replacing Tires on a Leased CarThere are quite a few things you should check or replace prior to the end of your lease. Replacing tires on a leased car is something you may need to do, and it’s something we can help you do without spending a small fortune.

Be sure to check:

  • Tread depth
  • Condition of the tire; check for cuts, bulges, or anything that would indicate compromised safety and longevity
  • Double check that the tires on your vehicle match the manufacturer’s guidelines for your vehicle

If you need different tires, the TireZoo can help. We can replace one, two, three, or four tires with quality used tires that will pass inspection!

The tires on your lease return will pass inspection with our help.

Need more help prior to returning your leased car? Here is a good article to reference things you should consider. 

How to Donate a Car

How to Donate a CarMore people are considering donating a car, as the process becomes more clear and simple. There are advantages to donating a car such as not going through the sales process, helping others, and making a significant donation that is tax deductible. Many participating donation programs accept non-functioning vehicles as well, which can be a good option for those who don’t wish to spend more than the vehicle is worth to repair. Each person needs to decide if donating a car (or other vehicle) is the right choice for you. Once you’ve made the decision to donate a car, you can select an organization that can assist you with the process and keep it very simple and easy for you.

How to Donate a Car:

Maybe you’ve heard the radio ads for Kars for Kids? This organization is sponsored by Microsoft, Goldman Sachs and a variety of other well-known entities. KarsforKids.org has a simple online form process, will accept cars, boats, or Rv’s in any condition; working or not.

Vehicles for Veterans accepts donated vehicles and is a Minnesota program through the Disabled American Veterans of Minnesota.

Make-a-Wish of Minnesota has a special car donation program called Wheels for Wishes, and they too accept all donated vehicles regardless of how well they run.

You can also donate your car to Minnesota Public Radio.

 

Like-New Tires at the TireZoo

like new tiresMany of our used tires are like-new tires, with most of their tread life remaining. When you are looking for new tires and don’t have it in the budget, consider quality used tires a safe and affordable option. Our used tire inventory is very large, and we can often find you options for your size of tire. We’re upfront with all our used tire inventory and will let you know what you can expect to get for remaining wear. Many of our used tires are in great condition because they literally haven’t been driven much. 

“I was in serious need for new tires but could not bring myself to spend that kind of money. A friend recommend I check out tirezoo.com. I got four almost new used tires, 85% tread life for a great price. And, they got them installed and balanced in 42 minutes. How cool is that. Never buying new tires again!” CanadianDude

Here’s what another customer has to say when he brought his car into the TireZoo.
