We try hard to offer the lowest delivered price on all the tires we carry. In fact, we have a dedicated department that shops the competition to make sure we are indeed the cheapest delivered price out there. We are human though and some prices fall through the cracks. If you've found one lower, we want to know! We will beat our competitions lowest delivered price (unit price + freight). We won't be undersold! Just keep in mind that most of our competitors don't show you the total price until you're in their shopping cart. For an accurate comparison, be sure to add their additional shipping charges to their base price.

There are two ways to contact us about our low price guarantee. The fastest way is by calling us at 1.888.459.4080 or your local Discount Tire/America's Tire store. All of our sales agents have the necessary on-line tools to look up the cheaper price and ensure you're getting the best possible deal. You can also submit the cheaper price on our websites at Discount Tire Direct.com or DiscountTire.com (SEE THE EXAMPLE BELOW). We will contact you within 1 business day (excluding Sunday) after you submit the lower price.


Discount Tire has been in business for 50 years and we have built relationships with all of the top tire and wheel manufacturers. We take pride in offering the lowest prices, the most choices and the best customer service in the industry. With your help, we can continue ensuring the best possible pricing! We appreciate your continued support and the opportunity for your future business.

Two questions for you Matt, possibly 3, five really! Wasn't there a site out of California calling themselves Discount Tires?

I just bought a set of Kingstar Road Fit SK 10s. They are very popular overseas and made by Hankook. What do you know about them? They are great looking UHP Tires. Why is it only one shop & Amazon sell them? They have been in my closet for a month which brings up another question, can the Rubber fumes get me sick and will I possibly die? Chinese rubber as well. I asked a New Zealand tire dealer why 'Tyre Shops" overseas don't advertise their prices, instead offering a "quote". He told me if he did list his prices, the competition could undercut him. I didn't respond but isn't that the nature of business?.

Thank you for the Post. We hope you had an excellent weekend.

There was a site going by Discount Tires but they recently changed to Tire Crazy.

I'm not familiar with the Kingstar brand of tires but a quick google search shows this brand just recently became available to the U.S. market earlier this year. This brand was originally available in Europe and South America only. We can not order this particular brand at this time.

As far as the rubber fumes making one ill are concerned, I haven't seen any studies on the topic. I'm not sure how long you plan on storing your tires but here's what Michelin has to say about proper tire storage.

I'm not sure how the tire business works in other countries but there are a few U.S. companies that require you to call for pricing. As to why this is I'm not sure. It could be for a few different reasons. We for one always list our current pricing on all the products we carry. We also guarantee the lowest out the door price. If a competitor ever has a cheaper out the door price, we'll beat it.

I hope this information helps. If we can be of further assistance please let us know.
