    Got up this morning to a flat tire, the screw was not on the sidewall so we were good there.

    I needed a rotation and wanted to rebalance the tires too and I remembered America's Tire does this for free.

    They patched up the tire and rebalance/rotated the tires.

    All for free, I never purchased a tire from them.

    I highly recommend them!!!!

    Nice. I had no idea... I have a damaged sidewall on my ecopia that's bulging pretty bad and today Priority Tire online would only sell me one, but it was $75 so a great deal. I'll probably try to get as much life out of the tire around town and then before the next road trip put the spare donut on and head to America's Tire to see if they charge to mount and balance and recycle old tire. Currently an alignment shop down the street will do that for me for $20 cash because they don't have to deal with the car, just the wheel and the two tires it's a reasonable price, but maybe these folks will do it for a better price?

    They won't balance for free, at least the one near me.

    Can always call and ask how much. They can also sell road hazard warranty to you for most tires. Walmart is also another cheap mounting option.

    $50 to fix a flat at the Tesla service center
    :mad:
    Fix a flat at Americas tire? Freeeeeee ! !
    So, guess where we bought replacement treads for our Model X when the Continental's wore out . . . .
    Best price in town (other than Costco with a seasonal coupon & costco doesn't do alignments) -
    good ol' America's Tire - they get all our business now
    they rock!

    I hate our local America's Tires. It's showroom is stocked with high pressure salesmen who (in the short time I was waiting) found multiple problems with each customer's car that required 4 new tires and alignment to fix. I just wanted a rotation. When he got around to mine and pointed out that uneven tread wear (slightly more wear on the outsides) meant that it needed new tires and an alignment I told him no. He said I'd have to make an appointment for 3 days in the future to get the free rotation.

    I'm sure it's a local problem, but it sure spoiled me on their brand.

    Maybe not.
    A LOT of big companies train their employees to sell people stuff that they don't need.
    Some are just a bit more aggressive in doing it.

    At least around here, they do not offer alignment service:

    https://www.discounttire.com/services

    Discount Tire is the name in some states while others America's Tire.

    Always check at http://www.tires.com to verify you have one of their stores. There are several stores with very similar name around here easy to confuse with them...
