Champtires.com Opens Second Pittsburgh Location

Wash Blvd with logoChamptires.com, which specializes in selling premium used and affordable new tires, has opened a second Pittsburgh location. The new retail and tire installation center is located at 1319 Washington Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.

Since 2009, Champtires.com has been based in West Mifflin, PA – first operating only as an e-commerce solution for drivers across the U.S. by providing low cost, high quality used tires. Two years later, it added retail and installation options for Pittsburgh-area customers. The West Mifflin location will remain the company’s headquarters.

“Opening the Washington Blvd. store will let us easily offer different tire options for Pittsburgh drivers,” said Brad Rea, owner and president of Champtires.com. “We have attracted drivers from across the region to our West Mifflin location, and the new store will just make it more convenient for customers in the East End and northern suburbs.”

Roughly 40 percent of Champtires.com’s business comes from local sales, and while Rea sees an opportunity for that to increase, the company also remains focused on selling tires online.

“New tires can be extremely expensive, and we have found that consumers want to save money where they can. Our prices – especially for our used tires – can’t be beat,” Rea said.

Drivers who need to replace one, two, three or a whole set of tires can save up to 80 percent off of the cost of new tires by choosing used tires. Champtires.com has approximately 10,000 used tires in its inventory at any time, allowing the company to match brand names and tread levels to drivers’ existing tires.

Alluding to efforts to curb the selling of unsafe used tires, Rea pointed out that not all used tires dealers are created equally.

“We air test and inspect every tire that enters our warehouse. Buying premium used tires is a cost-effective and safe option for drivers,” he said. “If you have ever bought a used car, you also bought and drove on used tires.”

Opening the Washington Blvd. location has already created three full-time jobs: one manager-level and two customer service positions.

Champtires.com will hold a grand opening celebration at the Washington Blvd. location on Saturday, July 18 from noon – 3 p.m. Learn more.

Why buy high-quality used tires?

If you’re in the market for tires, considering used tires is a good choice if you’re looking to save money. However, not all used tire stores are created equally, so make sure that you purchase used tires from a reputable seller, such as Champtires.

Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically recently, causing the price of brand new tires to skyrocket. High-quality used tires are a much more affordable option.

Used tires are also an environmentally friendly choice – you will be using a premium, recycled product.

Why buy used tires from Champtires?

Champtires only sells the highest quality used tires. Every tire that enters Champtires’ warehouse is air-tested and quality-checked. Tires that do not meet Champtires’ high standards are not sold.

Only need one tire? No problem!

You can buy one, two, three or a whole set of tires from Champtires. Our inventory is so massive that we can match the tread level and brand name that you need.

Call Champtires at 412-462-3000 for more information.

Champtires Supports RMA’s Statement on Banning Unsafe Used Tires; But Explanation on Safe vs. Unsafe Used Tires Is Missing

Champtires, which sells new and high-quality used tires, supports the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association’s (RMA) recent statement on supporting states that ban the sale of unsafe, used tires.

However, Champtires’ President Brad Rea feels that RMA could do more to illustrate the difference between reputable used tire sellers that sell safe products and others who are selling damaged products.

“We air test and inspect every tire that enters our warehouse,” Rea said. “RMA is doing a great job urging states and consumers to understand the risks of buying worn, damaged tires, but they fail to include that buying premium used tires is still a cost-effective and safe option for drivers.”

Drivers who need to replace one, two, three or a whole set of tires can save up to 80 percent off of the cost of new tires by choosing used tires. Champtires’ has approximately 10,000 used tires in its inventory at any time, allowing the company to match brand names and tread levels to drivers’ existing tires.

“If you have ever bought a used car, you also bought and drove on used tires,” Rea said. “There is definitely a huge difference between safe and unsafe used tires, and the tire and auto industries need to work to better educate drivers on that.”

Since 2009, Pittsburgh-based startup Champtires has provided drivers around the United States with affordable, high-quality used tires through the company’s website and its Pittsburgh, Pa. warehouse. For more information, visit http://www.champtires.com.

Tires Key To Improving Gas Mileage

fuel economyGas prices are dropping across the U.S., but there are several things you can keep an eye on to maintain your vehicle – and get the most out of your gas mileage.

Your tires play a key role in how your car uses gas.

Keep your tires properly inflated. Fueleconomy.gov reports this that can improve your gas mileage by up to 3.3% by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3% for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. Properly inflated tires are safer and last longer.

Note: To find the correct tire pressure for your car, check for a sticker in the driver’s side door jam or the glove box or in your owner’s manual. Do not use the maximum pressure printed on a tire’s sidewall.

Do not drive on worn tires. Besides being unsafe because they do not handle wet or icy conditions well at all, worn tires with uneven tread pattern will cause your car to use more gas than necessary.

For information on how to quickly check tread levels, click here.

Increasing the size of your wheels and tires impacts gas mileage. Bankrate.com says that when engineering your vehicle, the manufacturer invested time and money determining the ideal wheel size and tire type. Replacing the original-equipment wheels and tires can affect handling and fuel economy. If you want to use plus-size wheels, find out how to compensate for the change.

If your tires aren’t keeping pressure or have low tread, do not let the high cost of new tires scare you from fixing the problem.

Champtires can help you get affordable, high-quality used tires with good tread levels – in any brand name or quantity that you need.

Champtires also sells new tires at the lowest prices you’ll find anywhere.

Call 412-462-3000, visit Champtires.com or shop in person at 1130 Lebanon Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122.
