Do People Really Buy Used Tires?

Yes, and you may have before without realizing it. If you have ever bought a used car, you’ve probably also bought used tires. You can also purchase premium used tires any time you need tires.

When Do You Buy Used Tires?

Used tires are a great option if your current tires are worn or bald (which is very dangerous), you hit a pothole and need to replace one tire, you need to change your two front or two rear tires or your tires are required to be a certain tread depth to pass state inspection or a lease turn-in check. Basically, used tires are perfect for whenever you need to buy tires and want to spend less money.

How Does Buying Used Tires Work?

  1. First, you need to find what size tire fits on your vehicle.
  2. Next, determine the tread depth that will work for your needs.
  3. Then, you’re ready to shop.

When you buy from Champtires, we offer free and fast shipping on all online orders. You can have them delivered to your home or your favorite tire installer.

If you live in the Pittsburgh area, we operate three locations where you can buy tires, have them installed and have other car work done.

The Champtires Advantage

At any given time, Champtires has more than 30,000 tires in stock. Every tire that enters the warehouse is inspected and air tested.

Replacing Tires: If you get a flat tire or need to change any number of your tires, Champtires’ huge inventory means that you’ll be able to find the size, tread depth and even brand to match your remaining tires.

  • It’s important to note that if you’re replacing one tire, its tread level should match its counterpart. So front tire tread depths should match and back tire tread depths should be the same. Front and back tires should always be within 2/32 of each other.
  • If someone tells you that you can’t only replace one tire (or two) and insists that you need to buy two (or a whole set), be sure to question them as to exactly why…tread depths matching is what matters.

  • Safe. When bought from a reputable tire shop, like Champtires. We’ve been in business since 2009, and every tire that enters our warehouse is inspected and air tested.
  • Environmentally friendly. Instead of the used tires ending up in a landfill, you will be reusing a premium, recycled product.
  • Much more affordable. Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically recently and has caused the price of brand new tires to skyrocket. We also offer a 14-day satisfaction guarantee. Check Champtires’ prices for yourself.

Gas Mileage and Your Tires

Learn how important your tires are to maintain a good fuel economy.

Gas prices are high and poor fuel economy is bad for the environment. Did you know that your tires impact your car’s gas mileage?

  • Not only are worn or bald tires dangerous to drive on, but they reduce the vehicle’s gas mileage. Uneven and low tread patters force your car to work harder to attempt to gain traction.
  • Low or incorrect tire pressure will result in a two percent loss of gas mileage for every five pounds per square inch (psi) of pressure that is below the manufacturer’s recommendation. Learn more about tire pressure.
  • Unbalanced and misaligned tires also hurt gas mileage.
  • Snow tires — which are great for driving in snow and other winter weather conditions — impact gas mileage. Be sure to take them off once spring arrives.

If your tires are causing problems and you’re looking for a way to save up to 80 percent off the cost of new tires, Champtires has thousands of used tires for sale. It doesn’t matter if you need one, two or a whole set – Champtires will get you the tread level you need in the brand name that you trust.

Why Buy Used Tires?

The Dangers of Driving With Worn Tires.

Don’t Ignore the Tire Pressure Light

Low tire pressure can cause dangerous driving conditions

When temperatures fluctuate drastically, it’s common for a car’s tire pressure to change, causing the monitoring light to activate. However, this doesn’t mean that you should ignore the notification.

A spokesman for the Rubber Manufacturers Association explained “that yellow Tire Pressure Monitoring System light isn’t a friendly warning to put a little air in the tires – it’s an emergency warning that a tire has lost at least a quarter of its pressure.”

Driving on tires with low pressure can cause serious damage to the tires and your car. Low tire pressure will cause your car not to be able to handle steering and braking properly and can lead to blowouts, flat tires and premature wear.

On the flip side, tire pressure that is too high causes traction and gripping issues and a more bouncy ride.

What is the Correct Tire Pressure for Your Car?

Check your owners guide to find out what the recommended tire pressure is for your specific car. This information is also sometimes found on the inside of the driver’s door.

Do not necessarily follow what is listed on the actual tire. That number is usually the maximum pressure that the tire can handle and not what is ideal for your vehicle.

It’s a good idea to inspect your tires on a regular basis. Also, keep in mind to check all four of your tires. Just because one or two are at an acceptable pressure, does not mean the remaining tires are not experiencing issues.

What To Do When Tires Keep Losing Pressure

If a tire continues to lose pressure after checking and adding air, there is probably a leak or other defect in the tire. Do not panic. Replacing one (or two, three or a whole set), does not have to drain your bank account.

Instead of a new tire, and replacing two or all four, consider buying a high-quality used tire from a reputable place such as Champtires. Champtires has more than 30,000 used tires for sale at any given moment—in nearly every size, brand and tread depth imaginable. And every tire that enters Champtires’ warehouse is inspected and tested.

Simply determine what size your tire is and what its counterpart’s tread level is at, and search Champtires website for a replacement tire.

The Dangers of Driving With Worn Tires.

Four Fall Tire Tips

Check your tires, check your air pressure and other tips to stay safe on the roads.

Changing weather and shorter days can make fall tricky for safe driving, but it’s also the perfect time to prepare for what’s ahead.

The Car Care Council, a national nonprofit dedicated to car safety, has declared October “Fall Car Care Month” to help drivers learn the safety and economic benefits of regular vehicle care. And Consumer Reports says that fall is the best time to buy tires for winter.

Here are four more fall tire tips:

  • Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual and follow the recommended service schedule.
  • Check your tires. Driving on worn tires or tires with no tread is very dangerous. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow. Learn how to quickly inspect your tires. Wet road conditions can be extremely dangerous when tires have low tread. Reduce your risk of hydroplaning.
  • Check your tire pressure – cold weather can reduce tire pressure, and it’s safer to drive on tires that are properly inflated.
  • When temperatures dip below 45 degrees, it’s time to think about winter tires. Winter or “snow” tires are made from softer rubber that does a better job of gripping cold pavement. Winter treads are also specifically designed for snow and ice. Studded winter tires provide extra control but wait for snow pack. Studs don’t perform well in rain.

If your tires are worn or have low tread level, do not let the high cost of new tires scare you from fixing the problem. Champtires can help you get affordable, quality used tires with good tread depth – in any brand name or quantity that you need. Search our inventory and shop online now (free shipping is always included) or stop in at one of our three Pittsburgh-area tire stores.

How To Find Your Tire Size and Determine Tire Tread Depth

Find Tire Size

Tire Size

Tire sizes are a series of numbers that refer to the tire’s width, aspect ratio and rim size. They are typically found in two places:

  1. On the tire’s sidewall. (See above image for an example)
  2. On a sticker on the inside of the driver’s car door.

You can also search Champtires’ website to find out what tire size(s) fits your vehicle.

Tread Depth

In the U.S., the accepted measurement for tire tread levels are in 32nds of an inch. Tire tread gauges are used to obtained specific measurements. Most passenger tires start out with a tread level of 10/32. States, like Pennsylvania, that have vehicle safety inspections require tires to have certain tread depths to pass. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow.

Learn how to use a tire tread gauge.

When tires are worn or nearly bald, the penny test is useful.

Tire Safety in the Rain

Reduce your risk of hydroplaning and make sure your car’s tires are not worn or bald.

Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow, especially in dangerous weather conditions like rain and wet roads.

When tires are worn—or even bald—their grooves are no longer able to adequately obtain traction. This causes hydroplaning, or the loss of steering, braking and power control.

And hydroplaning can occur even on damp roads, so it is important to be aware of your tires tread levels. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends checking tire tread levels monthly. Learn how to quickly inspect your tires.

If your tire tread depths are low, don’t let the high cost of new tires prevent you from replacing them. Champtires sells premium used tires at the lowest prices. With more than 30,000 tires in stock, Champtires can get you the size, brand and tread depth you need—all while saving you up to 80% off the cost of new tires.

Are Your Tires Ready for Snow and Ice?

5

Are your tires ready for snow and ice? Here are a few essential tips, including how to save up to 80 percent off the price of new tires:

Having the correct tire pressure is essential for proper handling. A temperature change of just 10 degrees can cause a ten percent reduction, or constriction, of air in tires. So tire pressure can be affected from day to night temperature – not to mention when temperatures drop severely.

Check the optimal tire pressure of your vehicle on the label inside the driver’s door frame or in the owner’s manual. And whatever you do, don’t ignore the tire pressure monitoring light.

Worn tires—especially bald ones—can be deadly on wet or snow-covered roads, where the grooves aren’t deep enough to channel water or snow out from beneath the tread and affects control of the steering wheel. Wet-weather braking and snow traction also decrease as tires wear. Learn more about the dangers of driving with worn tires.

ConsumerReports.org has said about tire tread levels that, “Unfortunately, 2/32 of an inch may be too late if you drive in rain or snow. Based on our tests of new and half-tread-depth tires, you may want to consider shopping for new ones on your car or truck closer to the 4/32-inch groove depth.”

Learn how to determine your tires’ tread depth.

How To Save Money on Tires

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.
