How Can I Find Cheap Car Tyres?

In today’s economic climate, consumers are trying to find ways to save money. Along with the increased cost of gasoline, proper vehicle maintenance is becoming more expensive every day. Consumers can save a substantial amount of money by finding ways to buy cheap tyres. Below are some of them.

Salvage yards

There are many cars, trucks and SUV’s that have been wrecked and sent to the salvage yards. Most still have very good parts on them and are sold as used. This includes selling their used tyres. With such a big selection of vehicles, the chances of finding used cheap ones that will fit a specific automobile is high. The best thing about buying used tyres at salvage yards is that they are usually very cheap.

The treads can be checked to see if they pass inspection by sticking a penny or a nickel in the indenture between them. If the head is not showing, the tyres should pass. Also, to help make sure that the tyres have not dry-rotted, check the inspection on the front windshield. If it is not very old, the tyres should be okay.

Service stations

Many service stations repair and change vehicle tyres. At times, customers ask for their tyres to be changed off even if they still have plenty of tread on them and they could still pass the state inspection. Some of these stations keep the used tyres. Asking them if they have any for sale may provide a cheap alternative to buying new ones. Service stations have to pay to dispose of any tyres that they do not want to keep so they very well might sell them.

Department discount stores

Some of the large department discount stores carry automobile supplies. Many of them sell these supplies considerably less than regular auto shops. Tyres can be bought usually at 20 to 30 percent discount.

Tyre discount stores

Tyre discount stores usually offer wider selections when trying to find inexpensive tyres. They buy in bulk and can sell them cheaper than department discount stores. These stores can also be found online. They may offer extra incentives for buying them online, such as free shipping.

Auto tyre shops

Every so often, these specialty stores will offer sales that are really good buys. Tyres can be bought rather cheaply. Some have even advertised that if a customer buys one tyre, the second tyre will be free. Other sales can include cheap prices for tyres that are going to be discontinued and not sold in the future by them.

There are many places that consumers can look to buy really cheap tyres. After only a few minutes of searching, real bargains can be found.
