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.

The best option for buying used tires is Discount Tire. Discount Tire (known as America’s Tire in some markets) has locations local to most and includes installation in its pricing.

Selling used tires means constantly changing inventory with a wide range of reliability based on each tire’s history. For these reasons, many tire shops and auto parts retailers choose not to take on the added liability that comes with selling used tires.
However, a few major stores do sell them — we’ve listed these stores below, starting with the best overall options.
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.
