Short Answer: Most nationwide tire retailers do not offer a AAA discount. However, AAA does partner with select Discount Tire locations in Southern California and Michigan. Members receive $10 off each tire purchased with a “better” or “best” rating in Southern California and 5% off of any regular-price or sale tire or wheel in Michigan. This discount cannot be used at Discount Tire’s sister company, Discount Tire Direct. For more details, see below.
Where to Get a AAA Tire Discount
The American Automobile Association (AAA) partners with Discount Tire to offer a discount to AAA members at participating locations in Southern California and Michigan. In Southern California, Discount Tire offers AAA members $10 off per tire if the tire purchased has a “better” or “best” rating. Michigan AAA members can save 5% on regular-price and sale tires and wheels at Discount Tire stores.
If you live in Southern California or Michigan, you can call your nearest Discount Tire to confirm that it participates in the AAA discount. To redeem the discount, you will need to show your AAA membership card at checkout.
Discount Tire locations elsewhere do not offer a AAA discount, and Discount Tire’s online-only sister store, Discount Tire Direct, does not have a AAA discount either. To learn about Discount Tire vs. Discount Tire Direct, see our article.
AAA partners with many other companies to offer discounts on things like rental cars, hotels, restaurants, and more. For full AAA member benefits, visit the AAA website. Is a AAA membership worth it? See our article comparing AAA and MCA roadside assistance services.
