What are the Best Used Tires?

What are the Best Used TiresIf considering used tires is something new to you, but you’ve heard about the impressive savings that can be had, you may be wondering what are the best ones to buy? Maybe someone has warned you to be careful about buying tires that are used. The truth is,  when purchased from a reputable place like the TireZoo that specialized in selling new and used tires, they can be an wonderful option for many people.

There are reasons to buy used tires, as well as good reasons to buy new tires that we explain in further detail here. 

So back to your original question

The best used tires are not limited to brand, make or model. It has more to do with the condition of the tire and the tread life remaining. When looking for used tires at the TireZoo, we’ll tell you what percentage of tread life remains and about how many miles you can expect to get. We give upfront pricing and let you decide. We also offer a warranty on used tires that is explained here. 

You can stop in either of our locations anytime to ask questions, give us a call, or connect with us on Facebook. 

Are Used Tires Safe?

The Safety of Used Tires

Safe, used tires has to do with the quality, tread, condition, and source of the tires. 

Quality used tires should not be confused with old tires or any tire with unknown origins. The condition and safety of used tires depends on your trusted source for quality tires. The TireZoo is here for you! 

We receive high quality used tires from other tire dealers who aren’t able or willing to stock such a large supply of used tires like we do. We really do specialize in a large inventory of quality used tires!

Many places that sell new tires aren’t able to sell used tires. We are able to step in and help out. We take the used tires, and make them available to people looking for quality used tires or to match/change out a specific tire with the exact percentage of remaining tread. Yes, it can be done!

We also get quality used tires from auto dealerships. Many times dealerships take in a trade, but change out the tires with all new tires. This leaves excellent used tires; used tires needing a place to go. That’s where we come in.

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.

Reasons for Buying Used Tires Instead of New Tires

buying used tiresWhy some people opt for buying used tires

People have about buying used tires. It’s common to ask why one would want to buy used tires rather than new ones. We love answering your questions and helping you find exactly what you need. 

Having been in the tire business for almost four decades, we know our customers and the problems that are solved by offering quality used tires at a fraction of the cost of new tires. Here are some of their reasons you might want to consider for yourself:

  1. You’re low on cash and can’t afford new. Let’s face it. People are on budgets, and quality used tires are a very good option for people who don’t have it in their wallets to buy new tires right now.
  2. You blew out one tire and don’t want to replace them all. We have a such large inventory that in most cases we can match your existing tire exactly so you don’t have to replace all four.
  3. Not sure how long your vehicle will keep ticking? Used tires are a good idea if you have a high mileage vehicle and can’t warrant putting new tires on.
  4. You have a lease return that is due in the next couple months. If the tires on your vehicle are worn, we can help you find tires that will pass lease inspection.
  5. You have a car with front-end issues you can’t afford to fix right now.
  6. You are just hard on tires and end up blowing them out before the tread wears out.Maybe people who drive vehicles for unusual purposes or hazards; off-road, potholes, rough terrain, etc.
  7. You want to save money on like-new tires! Many times we have “like new” take off sets, and people just want to save money. Why not?
  8. The Tire Zoo offers a 30 day warranty on all used tires.
  9. You’re committed to being as green as possible, which means using something until it’s outlasted its purpose; and then finding a new use for it or recycling. Used tires are a good choice.

Many people worry about the quality of used tires, but we have only a 5% return rate on used tires. That is extremely low. The Tire Zoo has been assisting with new and used tires for many years and have many repeat customers. Check us out today!
