|Got a Flat?|
Did you know that you can pull into any Discount Tire on any day of the week and they will check your tire pressure and refill it for free? No questions asked. In fact, that is why we stopped by yesterday with my mom's car. As we waited in line the mechanic cheerfully filled the tires on the car in front of us and gave the elderly woman a fresh bottle of water. He didn't sell her any new services or suggest that she needed new tires, he simply aired up the one's she had and gave her a friendly smile. When we pulled forward he did the same for us, 'no questions asked', no sales pitch. It is simply great marketing, Discount Tire knows you are going to have to replace your tires about every 40,000 miles, so good customer service and a little free air is no big deal.
Another reason we like Discount Tire so much is this 'no questions asked policy'. I can remember one time we bought a more expensive set of tires and they didn't ride like we thought they would and Discount Tire took the tires back two days later 'no questions asked'. They simply put a different set of tires on the car which we were perfectly satisfied with. Discount Tire also offers an incomparable tire hazard package. Not only will they cover a flat do to road hazards but they will apply that warranty to wear and tear. So, as your tires get old you basically get a rebate towards a new set.
In a hurry? Discount Tire will not keep you waiting, you will be in and out in about an hour even on a busy Saturday Morning. And you will never pay full price. Discount Tire is always running a special or mailing out a coupon.

One final note, if your car is not worth repairing, then you may consider donating your car for a tax credit. Organizations like Goodwill will allow you to donate your car for a tax credit and then they will repair it and sell it at a discounted rate to someone in need.
