Discount Tire has over 900 stores in 28 states. Those of you in California may know the store as “America’s Tire.” Regardless of the name, Discount Tire promises the lowest prices, the most choices, and the best customer service in the industry. But do those choices include buying and selling used tires? We called both Discount Tire’s customer service and several individual locations to uncover the following information for you.
Does Discount Tire Sell Used Tires?
Discount Tire does in fact sell used tires, but availability may be slim. There are no warranties or guarantees on used tires, but safety shouldn’t be a huge concern as the store’s stock doesn’t include anything over three years old, worn tread, or tears. Savings can be significant, but the purchase price will vary depending on the type of tire, the age of the tire, and the tread left.

Does Discount Tire Buy Used Tires?
Discount Tire doesn’t buy used tires, but you may be allowed to trade in your tires for a small credit toward the purchase of new tires. The amount of the credit will be small and the specific amount will depend on the type of tire, age, tread, and similar factors. The store usually won’t accept tires over three years old. No matter the age, the tread should meet certain criteria and there should not be any tears in the tires. Your tires will need to be brought into the store for inspection to determine whether they can be accepted for credit.
