I purchased 4 premium tires last year for a used car that I purchased. The car ran well & I never had a problem with the performance. I purchased the recommended warranty. When one of my tires was punctured, they replaced it. They run a very efficient office. It is well organized, well lit, neat, & the entire staff is professional.

Just introduced to Discount Tire in Kansas City and had to immediately replace a tire with a screw in it. Couldn't repair, so checked their options and decided on a mid-to-higher level quality tire for my passenger rear. They were quite quick and helpful, but... they didn't tell me about warranty options while I overheard others discussing it and was disappointed that I wasn't suggested such an option.

    Discount Tire on Westport Road in Louisville, KY is a pleasant Tire Repair Shop to have your automotive work completed. Myself and or my family have had 4 or 5 sets of tire replaced at this location, trailer tire completed and even complete brake work completed. We have been very happy with the workmanship, the pricing and the willingness of the management team to work with us to find the best possible pricing.

    I used to be Discount Tire customer for long time. In 2015 my daughter ordered a rim for her car and paid in full, meanwhile we sold the car and never collect the Rim. Time passes by and need tires were for another vehicle. I went to the same store we ordered the rim but they couldn't give me the credit for what we paid for the rim. I stop dealing with Discount tire. Few years back I wrote to customer service regarding what happened long time back, Surprisingly Regional Manager TOOK TIME to called me, first apologized then gave me a credit more than what we paid for the RIM.

    Last week I wanted a some tires and did search online. DT was not the lowest, but the online chat Rep: Ms. ** was great to find the tires I wanted and discounted to match the competition and to make me feel important. Store guy was great to inform me lots I never knew regard to tires, then gave me the Rebate coupon too. Finally rebate offer number did not work, again chat online they even filled my rebate coupon and gave the confirmation number. Things have changed a lot. If one employee is great then it's That person but when it's happening thru out many steps it's coming down from top. It was a more than money's worth purchasing experience.. Thank you guys.

    I visit Discount Tire on W. Jefferson St, Joliet twice in one month. The first visit was on 7/7/21, because I had a tire with a slow leak. And the representative by the name of Matt, he was helpful by explaining different tire product and showed empathy. So 7/27/21 I came back to purchase two tires. Great customer service and Covid safe. D. **, Joliet.

    I went to Discount Tire to purchase a set of tires for my 1958 Corvette but since I was there anyway I figured I would buy a tire for my 2011 Dodge Ram and get three Tire Pressure Sensors (TPI's) replaced. One TPI worked perfect, one TPI did not work at all and the other two TPI's only worked for about 15 minutes after starting the truck. I talked to a salesman by the name of Gregg who told me he had a set of General Grabber Tires that only had 3K miles and that he would sell them to me for less than half of what they would run brand new, and he would replace all four TPI's at $240.00. I specifically asked Gregg if the tires had any plugs in them and he replied, "they are just like brand new with no plugs with less than 3K miles on them".

    When driving to work the next day, two of the brand new TPI's that were working stopped working after 15 minutes just like they did before they were replaced. Of course, the TPI that was working still was and the TPI that was not working at all, was working. When I got to work, I looked at one of the tires and noticed a plug in one of the tires. (I only looked at one tire.) I don't see how two brand new TPI's would failed after 15 minutes just like the old ones did unless they did not replace them and only replaced the one bad TPI. As far as the plug, Gregg either lied to me, was incompetent or both.

    Had good service and very personable salesperson. He gave me a total price for 3 new tires which I charged on my credit card. It was not until I got home and looked at the receipt that I noticed I was charged $99 for "certificates for refund - replacement" ($33 each for 3 tires). He made no mention of this to me and it came as a complete surprise. I would like to have been able to make my own choice.

    When a person of color goes here in a Exotic car they are profiled and treated like a piece of trash and thief. Like they don’t belong on earth especially by Pat the manager. Shameful on this great company!!! Apparently no vetting happens.

    Called for an "out the door quote" for 4 specific tires. Was quoted "out the door" $772. Made an appointment for 2 days later. Had the tires replaced and was charged $872. Didn't realize until a few hours later the difference. Reviewing the receipt a $25 per tire "certificate for refund" was added to the invoice without ever being offered or accepted. Called the Okemos location and was advised that "generally" they offer the certificate and "most people" accept the certificate. Of course it's typically accepted because they do not tell people about it - they simply add it to the invoice. They apologize and offer to refund this; which I accepted.

    My question is - how may other people have been charged this amount and never had the certificate explained? My guess is multiple. Additionally, this is printed right on the invoice: https://www.discounttire.com/customer-service/certificates. Did not discuss certificates. That clearly indicates that they were added without the consumer's knowledge. Neither the service tech Bob, nor the manager Jim, could explain how the line "did not discuss certificates" appeared on the invoice. Illegally overcharging! Discount Tire is a scammer!

    Low Tire light came on and immediately went to Discount Tire for their free Tire air pressure and to see why light went on. Tread life: 5, 4, 4, 4. Tires aired and took off. The next day Tire light back on & went to discount tire to check front left Tire. Could not see any source of leak. Tire salesman went out to check Tire and tread Life: 4, 4, 3,3. Advised him my tire tread was just checked less than two days earlier at their location and what explains the difference. RED FLAG. He further stated I need two tires per his conflicting Tire tread measurement. RED FLAG. Advised him I was only interested in the one Tire and he seemed angry and asked to look at Tire before replaced.

    My wife's car is a Kia Forte with low profile and difficult to examine for nail or other basis for loss of air. Tire was brought to office for my inspection. Couldn't locate any source of air loss. Ask salesman where was the leak. He would only repeat, "You need to buy the tire." RED FLAG. Since I was flying out of town the following morning I didn't want to leave my wife with any Tire uncertainty and bought the tire. No copy of the tire estimate was ever provided me or receipt. RED FLAG. Asked about warranty on replaced Tire and said none, without any clear explanation. Three of those tires were purchased from Costco & one at Discount tire. No Tire rotation was ever offered. Have been bothered over this purchase since leaving Discount TIRE (2640 Windmill, Henderson NV).
