Since 2009, Pittsburgh-based startup Champtires has provided drivers around the United States with affordable, high-quality used tires. The company has two Pittsburgh-area locations, West Mifflin and Washington Blvd, and sells tires online.

Why Buy 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 and has caused 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.

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.

Front or Back: Where Should Newer Tires Go?

rotateMany factors – from front-wheel drive to braking – cause front tires to wear faster than rear tires. If the tires aren’t rotated on a regular basis, this will mean the front tires will wear out well before the rear tires.

If your front tires are worn (click here for how to quickly check), there is no need to buy four new tires. At Champtires, we can match the tread level and brand name of your remaining tires – which will result in you saving hundreds of dollars.

However, the question remains: should the newer tires go in the front or the back?

For ultimate safety and performance, newer tires should always be placed on the rear of the vehicle. The back tires should not be more than 2/32 of an inch lower than the car’s front tires.

Why is this? Studies have shown that cars not following these guidelines can have serious control issues. All major tire manufacturers recommend that the best two tires should be installed on the rear of the vehicle, with no exceptions. Champtires adamantly stands behind this recommendation.

If you have any questions, Champtires’s staff is happy to assist you.

To find out if Champtires has the size and brand of tires that you need, call 412-462-3000, stop in at 1130 Lebanon Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122 or visit Champtires.com. If you’re in the Pittsburgh-area, Champtires offers tire installation.

If you’re not in Pittsburgh, Champtires’ website prices are rock bottom – plus we offer free shipping on all orders!
