Benefits of Buying Used Tires

Benefits of Buying Used TiresThere are definite benefits to buying used tires. There are very good reasons why it might be more advantageous to invest in new tires, but for many people there are plenty of good reasons to opt for used tires.

5 Benefits of Buying Used Tires

  1. Save Some Cash: Saving money is typically the number one reason people opt for buying quality used tires for their vehicle. In many cases, the savings is substantial. 
  2. Environment: Using tires through their lifespan is definitely a greener choice. Many of the quality used tires we have in stock have barely been used, and many have 75% or greater tread life left. 
  3. Flexibility: Another of the benefits of buying used tires is the ability to buy just one, or two, or three tires to replace bad tires and match existing tread on remaining tires. When you aren’t forced to buy more than you need, you save money.
  4. Freedom: If you drive in extreme conditions that would wear down tires faster than normal or pose a threat to wrecking or puncturing tires such as driving in construction zones and off-road, you have less invested in used tires should they cease to be repairable. Nobody wants to buy new tires if there’s a daily chance of wrecking them. 
  5. Shop in Person: At the TireZoo, we carry both new and used tires in stock. You are able to see the used tires yourself and the condition they are in, as well as compare to your other options. With our large inventory of quality used tires in Anoka and Bloomington, seeing the tires for yourself is a benefit to buying online or an auction site. You’ll know you’re getting quality tires and our unique 30 day used tire guarantee. 

Tire Recycling

tire recyclingWhat happens to a tire when it is old, worn, and no longer safe to use on a vehicle for its original, intended purpose? Recycling! Or at least today the answer is tire recycling.

Tire recycling has been around since people realized that having millions or even billions of old tires stock piled in landfills and other places was not a good thing. Every year creates another million or more of old tires. Safe tires are imperative for safe driving, so it’s equally important that people recycle old tires when they’re worn.

Not only is it bad for our environment and unsightly, but tire fires are dangerous and hard to control if in a large quantity. Without proper tire recycling opportunities, laws, and requirements, illegal dumping is also an ongoing issue that we’re all trying to curb!

The history of tire recycling has been an evolution of sorts, but is extremely important. Old tires can be used for a variety of new purposes. From tire swings to potato gardens and art sculptures, people are always thinking of new ways to use old tires. Tire recycling into other products completes the life cycle of a tire. At the TireZoo, most old tires get picked up by a truck, transported to Green Man,  ground up, and recycled. We charge a minimal fee to cover the costs. Stop by and make sure you get any old tires on your property recycled properly.

Declutter Your Garage

Declutter your garage

Is your garage the place that gathers all your household and vehicle cast off items?  Unless you are in the 1% of people who have a garage floor clean enough to eat off of, most of us find clutter builds up over time in our garage. Cold, long winters mean we pile stuff up, knowing we’ll have to spend some serious time cleaning up later once the warm weather arrives.

Guess what?

The warm weather is here, and it’s time to declutter your garage. Choose a nice day with a light breeze, so you can open the garage door. Enlist help from family members, while working methodically through these tips to a cleaner, more organized garage.

Tips to Declutter Your Garage

  1. Create walking space: If your garage is so cluttered you can’t walk or move around, haul things outside while you get organized.
  2. Keep items you use: Items you use frequently all year long should be kept in your garage such as your air compressor, tool box, and maybe your bikes.
  3. Store seasonal items: No sense in stepping around sleds and ice skates in July. Store items in a separate shed, storage room in your basement, garage rafters, totes, or even walls of your garage.
  4. Reduce: While this is a  kind word for getting rid of items, many things need-not go in the garbage. Donate those old training wheels or snowmobile helmets you no longer need.
  5. Find homes for odd items: Do you have a collection of coffee cups building up in your garage that simply need to hitch a ride into the dishwasher? Spend some time putting things away around your house and yard that don’t belong in the garage
  6. Return what you can: Call that neighborhood kid over to get his sweatshirt he left 9 months ago and forgot to come back and get. Return the items you’ve borrowed from friends.
  7. Use hooks and nails to hang as many items on the garage walls as possible, up and out of your way.
  8. Designate totes, baskets, or boxes to gather smaller items like toys and lawn games.
  9. Restock your vehicle: If items were taken out of your vehicle and not returned, make sure you put them back before you need them. Double check you have jumper cables, tow rope, tire gauge, ice scraper, etc in the trunk of your vehicle.
  10. Recycle what you can: Never throw anything that can be recycled. Now days you can recycle almost everything. Batteries, tires, pop cans, wine corks, crayons, computers, etc should all be disposed of properly.
  11. Find a junk service: If you have a large amount of clutter that can’t be donated or pawned off on someone, you will need a junk collection service that will know how, what, and where to properly dispose of miscellaneous clutter.
  12. Reuse: If you have an old cupboard from a remodeling project you could use in the garage, or some shelving units to help you store things, repurpose and use items you already have.

Do you have any tips for decluttering and organizing a garage? We’d love you to share your tips.

The TireZoo: Tire Stores That Fit Your Needs and Schedule

Tire Places for Savings

With so many tire places to choose from, how do you refine your search to meet your tire needs? Not all tire stores are the same. Some auto repair places also carry a line or two of a specific brand of new tires, but don’t necessarily specialize in tires. Having new tires available is a convenience for their customers, but doesn’t provide many price comparison opportunities.

Some tire stores only have used tires, and others only carry new tires. While some people know exactly what they need, others aren’t sure until they talk to a tire specialist who can help them decide what they need. At the TireZoo, we listen and sell customers what only they need.

Deciding Between Tire Stores? Choose The TireZoo!

The TireZoo is a unique tire place in that we carry both new and used tires. We also carry most major brand of tires, as well as some lesser known brands. Our tire store is independently owned and operated, and therefore isn’t limited to the brands of tires we carry at either of our two store locations.

Because of our large inventory of new and used tires, our customers have many options to meet their needs. We can help you find more affordable options, and only replace what you need. If only one tire is bad, why replace them all? Our tire specialists will help locate a tire with similar tread life for the make and model needed.

A Tire Place You Can Trust

“Love this tire place! I highly recommend buying used tires from TireZoo. The tread looks more new than used, the price was amazing, and the staff – truly kindhearted! THANKS, YOU ROCK!” 

– Christina Ramsey

“Don’t go anywhere else. They have the best prices and the fastest service bar-none. Why go to a big box tire store when you can support a local business!” 

– James L.

Need Discount Tires? Shop Our Used Tire Inventory and Save

Discount Tires

Looking for quality used discount tires to ease your expenses this month? The TireZoo offers you multiple ways to save when buying tires, so your purchase doesn’t break the bank. Our everyday, affordable used tire prices will be the savings you’re looking for!

Look no further for discount tires; the TireZoo can help!

Don’t Discount the Quality of Used Tires

The used tires we sell at the TireZoo are very good quality, and many times are “like new”. Our inventory is large, but changes continually. Customers can save a considerable amount of money by opting for used tires rather than new. That’s why we offer such a large selection of used tires. Don’t automatically discount used tires, just because you’ve always purchased new. Learn more about where our used tires originate from.

Less Tires Needed is Another Great Discount

Not buying something you don’t need, always saves you money. There’s no greater discount tires than spending nothing; meaning that you should only buy what you need and we’ll help! If you don’t need to buy an entire set of four replacement tires, why do it? A large inventory of used tires means we can match the tread on any existing tires that can remain on your vehicle. Buy only one tire if that’s what you need. You can buy only two tires for the front or back of your car, if for some reason two wore differently than two other tires on your vehicle.  We offer very upfront pricing, so you always know what the total cost of tires, tax, and mounting/balancing will be. No surprises! Plus, we warranty all used tires for 30 days after the purchase and installation on your vehicle!

“Last time I purchased new off-brand tires and paid $1,000. This time I went to TireZoo and got a set of Michelin tires with 75% of the original tread wear remaining for $300. Now that’s a discount!” 

– Brian T.

Extreme Cold and Tire Pressure

check tire pressure in extreme coldRemember to check your tire pressure. It’s easy, fast, and important! In the extreme cold temperatures in Minnesota that we’ve been experiencing, your tire pressure may drop. Some of you may notice your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) censors indicate low tire pressure.

It’s a good thing to manually check your tire pressure and keep it according to manufacturing specs in your manual. If you are unsure of your tire pressure, have questions about the integrity of your tires and/or question if they are holding pressure, stop by and let us take a look. Better safe than sorry!
