5 Places That Sell Used Tires (+ Where Not to Go)

Buying used tires can help you save on your overall vehicle maintenance costs, but there are several factors to consider before buying, like the tires’ warranty coverage, age, and mileage. You can buy used tires from several national retailers like Discount Tire, Tire Rack, and Les Schwab, in addition to smaller chains and local shops. Below, we list the places that sell used tires and compare their products and services to help you decide where to shop.

What We Recommend

The best options for buying used tires are BestUsedTires.com and Discount Tire. If you’re willing to order online and arrange third-party installation or install the tires yourself, BestUsedTires.com has the widest selection of used tires and some of the lowest prices. It is the only retailer on our list that specializes in used tires. If you’d prefer a local option, Discount Tire (known as America’s Tire in some markets) has locations local to most and includes installation in its pricing.

We gathered this information by viewing each retailer’s online used tire inventory (where available) and contacting their customer service departments. Note that tire prices can vary widely based on type and size; for the list below, we used a 2017 Toyota Camry as a baseline for pricing.
