Tire Rack tires are delivered fully inflated and ready to install on your vehicle.
Yes, Tire Rack tires come pre-inflated with nitrogen. Nitrogen gas helps to maintain tire pressure and minimizes the impact of temperature changes on your tire. We recommend having your Tire Rack tires re-inflated with nitrogen every time you rotate them.
If you need new wheels, we can help. Our Wheel Visualizer tool makes it easy to browse through different wheel designs and see how they’ll look on your ride before you buy.
We also feature a number of installation shops in our network that offer both mounting and balancing for your convenience.
Tire Rack recommends you have your new tires installed by a trained professional installer. Improper installation can result in serious injury or death.
Can Tire Rack ship my tires to an independent installer?
Yes, we offer this service at no cost to you. Our “Over-the-Road” shipping service will ship your tires to a local independent installer for installation. Tires are shipped via FedEx Ground and the tire installer will receive them in 1-3 days.
When the tire installer receives your tires, they will call you to schedule installation.
Please note: If a flat tire repair is needed, the customer is responsible for all costs associated with flat repair on any tires purchased from Tire Rack.
If you’d like Tire Rack to locate a qualified, professional independent installer for you, please tell us where you live or work so we can find a location in your area that offers this service.

Is Tire Rack a good place to buy tires?
Tire Rack is an excellent place to buy tires and wheels. They have a wide variety of brands and styles, and their prices are competitive. Those features make them worth considering as a place to get new tires.
Tire Rack is going to be most useful for people who know what kind of tires they want. If you don’t have any idea what the best option for your car would be, you might want to go somewhere that has more people on staff who can help you make those choices.
If you know what brand and type of tire you need, Tire Rack is a great choice that will save you time, especially if you are willing to go with a no-frills buying experience.
Should you buy tires from your local tire installer?
There is a common misconception that when you buy your tires from a local tire shop they are overpriced. This is not always true. Buy tires online, and you’ll typically find prices that are cheaper, but this doesn’t always mean “BETTER“.
In fact, buying tires from a local tire shop can save you money in the long run.
With a local tire shop, you get the benefit of having an expert take care of your tire needs. They can save you time and hassle by giving you the best advice on what to buy for your vehicle.
They will also ensure that your new tires are properly mounted and balanced – all for free!- as most shops include mounting, balancing, and installation as part of their standard service when you buy from them. They will also be available to help if there is ever an issue with your new tires.
If you purchase online, there is no guarantee that the tires will be correct for your vehicle or even fit your wheels properly which can be very dangerous and costly to replace damaged wheels or other parts that were damaged by improperly mounted wheels/tires.
How do I get my tires installed at home?
To get your tires installed at home, you need to purchase your tires from a dealer that offers mobile tire installation.
When you’re buying new tires for your car, it’s always helpful to have someone come out and install them for you at home or work. This saves you the time and hassle of going to a tire store and having all four tires replaced.
Some online tire shops offer mobile tire installation, but others don’t. Before you buy, check to see whether the seller offers this service so you can get your tires installed at the same time.
If you’ve purchased tires for your car, the tire store will most likely install them on the vehicle for you. Depending on the store, installation may be free or cost a small fee.
If you already own a set of tires and need them mounted on a new set of wheels, they may do this as well. If not, there are mobile tire installers that can come to you.
Will Walmart install tire rack tires?
Yes, Walmart will install tires you buy from Tire Rack. They do not have to be purchased there first either. You would buy the tires from Tire Rack and then schedule an installation appointment with your local Wal-Mart.
When you arrive at Wal Mart, the installer will look up your order in Tire Rack’s system and install the tires for you.
As a side note, Walmart will install any brand of the tire (not just those purchased from Walmart) for a price of $15 per tire for passenger or light truck tires, or $20 per tire for SUV/truck tires.
That fee includes mounting/dismounting, tire pressure check and fills to recommended PSI, valve stem replacement if needed, balance, etc – in other words, everything included in a standard tire installation.
Can I buy tires online and have them installed?
This is a great question. The short answer is, “Yes“. You can buy tires online and have them installed at a local shop.
If you do, it’s important to note that the tires will be delivered to the shop of your choice and not to your home or office.
The reason for this is that there are specific storage requirements for tires, and the retail location where you choose to have them installed will likely have a warehouse or storage facility on site.
The technicians there will inspect the tires and prepare them for installation on your vehicle before you arrive.
When you purchase tires from Tire Rack, you can have them shipped directly to one of our recommended installers near you (many shops offer free tire mounting and balancing as part of their service).
It’s important to note that if you’re shipping tires directly to an installer, they shouldn’t charge you anything additional for mounting or balancing those tires. You may need to pay an installation fee if they don’t include it in the purchase price of the new tires.
How much should it cost to install new tires?
The easiest way to determine the exact cost of your tires is to use the tire selector found on your local dealer’s website.
This will allow you to choose the size of tire that you need as well as see the inventory that is available in stock. You can also see what services are offered by your local dealership and make an appointment online.
