Talking Tires for your Rig
I have been buying my tires at Discount Tire for several years. I always buy the hazard Insurance and I've used it many, many times.

Today I was talking to the guys and learned something.

If you have the Road Hazard Tire Insurance ( a $390 costs just $60) and you are somewhere that there is no Discount Tire; you can buy a tire from any dealer and when you get to a Discount Tire they will reimburse you for the tire, (have the receipt), and put the correct tire on your vehicle for just the cost of the New Tire Hazard Insurance.

You can't beat that deal with a stick.

Sounds like a good deal. So you buy the insurance for $60, get a flat, and have to buy a Walmart tire. Then when you get back to the Valley and your Discount, they reimburse you and then give you the correct tire for...?

Sounds like a better option than what I was doing. I bought my tires at Discount and then just bought a coverage plan from Walmart, on my Discount tires(There are Walmart everywhere.)

just fyi, looks like you might need to call and get pre-approval before you get a replacement tire from somewhere else...

3. If you have relocated to an area where there is no Discount Tire outlet, contact Consumer Affairs at 888.774.6560 and a representative will facilitate your tire replacement.

4. If you are traveling, call 888.774.6560 and you will either be directed to the nearest Discount Tire location or given an alternate solution for your tire refund or replacement.

I travel a lot and have used this. I called the number and they actually had me buy two tires so they matched since they where a different brand. They then swapped both out for my cert prices when I got back. It was a process but they took care of it.

What do you guys/gal mean by "cert prices?" What do you pay when you bring your non-discount tire(s) in?

you pay the same amount for that price of the cert when you get that tire certed out. So lets say I have certs on my bfg 31s at 23 a tire then I have to cert it out I then have to pay that same amount for a new tire to have certs on that tire.

I could be wrong though, I just work in the shop at Discount. not the counter.
