Where Do Used Tires Come From

where do used tires come fromYou’ve heard about the money that can be saved from buying used tires or maybe a friend just told you about the awesome deals they found at the TireZoo, but you may be wondering where we get them…

With somewhere around the area of 15,000 used tires in stock, the TireZoo is one of the largest used tire dealers in the area. There’s something special about being able to provide used tires, and here’s why: Unless you have a vast inventory of used tires to select from, chances are you won’t be able to help someone match a sole tire exactly. But we can!

The TireZoo receives high quality used tires from other tire dealers who aren’t able or willing to stock such a large Where Do Used Tires Come Fromsupply of 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.

Used Tires

We also specialize in quality used tires that are as safe and reliable as new tires, but at a fraction of the cost. Buying used tires is often the perfect solution to a buyer’s needs and unique situation. We keep a very large inventory of used tires so that we can make each one useful to someone; maybe you? Plus, it’s important for our environment that we take the responsibility and opportunity to offer high quality used tires with plenty of life left in them.

When tires no longer can be sold as new or used…

recycle old tiresThere comes a time when used tires turn into old tires, and they are no longer safe to drive. Old tires can be used for a variety of new purposes when they are no longer able to be sold as quality used tires. From tire swings to potato gardens and art sculptures, people are always thinking of new ways to use old tires.

At the TireZoo, most old tires get picked up by a truck, transported to Green Man,  ground up, and recycled into other products for a complete life cycle of a tire!
