Original Review: January 21, 2023

Good morning. I'm a retired marine and just wanted to share my experience I had with discount tires primarily in Jacksonville NC where I retired. I've been using Discount Tire for a few years now and they just keep getting better. When I transferred the listener to Juliette GA, I was concerned that I would not get the same level of professional help that I was getting from Robert and Chris at Discount Tire in Jacksonville NC. Garrett, Brandon and a few other employees here at the Macon store have demonstrated this level of professionalism, attention to detail and yet still make you feel heard and understood and very responsive to your situation. . In short, Discount Tire will always get every penny of my money when I need a service they can provide for me and my family. Thank you Discount Tire for being awesome.

My car was bad, my co-worker came in and told me my tire felt low. We put air in and we could hear the air coming out ugh!!! I drove to Discount Tires in Gilbert AZ. This was the BEST customer service I have ever experienced! From the person who checked my tires to the manager. From the greeting to the work that was done on my car it was incredible! They explained each step. They are friendly, not all in your face trying to sell you something, no it's all about safety and how they can help. I thank everyone who is there. They got me back on the road safely. I will recommend to all my family and friends.

Winter is here in Montana. Our local store is flooded. However, the employees are consistent, quick and polite at the same time, even with "demanding" customers who were caught off guard by the first snow. I have been impressed with the professionalism shown at this shop over the years and they have never let me down. If your tire change is during peak season, plan ahead for the wait, because everyone is trying to be safe on the road, just like you are. And I appreciate the people at Discount Tire, because they're fantastic.

Original review: September 6, 2022

I've been doing business with Discount Tire for nearly 40 years and have NEVER been disappointed, but I've decided I won't be going anywhere else. Just today, I walked into this shop (Loop 323 Tyler) with my low tire pressure light problem that wasn't low pressure. One of the guys ended up having to reset the sensors at no cost to me. I went in expecting to find that I had a bad TPMS unit (I had already found out that everything was fine) and I spent at least $50-$70. The people who work (and have worked) for Discount Tire have always been extremely nice. They treat their customers as they would like to be treated. Thanks to Discount Tire for always being there when I needed a tire repair/replacement.

By the way, they all honor their tire warranties. Several years ago I had a tire on my car that ended up with a broken belt, ready to buy a new one because I had full warranty. Turns out I had two tires like that and they replaced them for the warranty cost of the tires ($6 back then). The tires were 35,000 mile tires and I had just finished those miles on these tires. The best offer I've ever received. If someone is looking for a reliable place to buy their tires, then you can't go wrong with Discount Tire! Trust in me!

Original review: August 23, 2022

I do most of my business at the Lake City, FL branch as they seem to have the best customer service of any location I've been to. 98% of the time they will honor the warranty you can buy with your tire purchase. I had to use up my warranty several times to change the tires. It's hit or miss if you're covered (depending on which CSR (customer service representative) you get). They take time to get the job done, which isn't always a bad thing as they take the time to compare the stats (pros/cons) for each brand of tire they stock and can provide for you.

The main issue I've encountered through them is that they quote a deadline and take twice as long to get the actual work done. If you go here make sure you allow at least 1-2 hours to wait. start to finish On the other hand, the staff is very friendly, professional and clean (appearance). The office/lobby is clean and tidy. I feel comfortable letting my son roam around because it's clean, spacious, and there's nothing for him to get into.

Original review: February 12, 2023

I own five cars and have been with Discount Tire for at least 15 years. I will never buy anything from this organization again. I was on my bike and I had a rear tire that desperately needed air. Discount Tire refused to give me air for my tire and sent me on a very dangerous journey to try and find air elsewhere. I will never go to a place that treats its customers this way or anyone else in a time of need for something as simple as air which they have in abundance.

Brian from Herndon, VAVerified Appraiser

Original review: February 6, 2023

I purchased two tires from Discount Tire in Fredericksburg, Virginia and had them installed. I live over an hour from the nearest discount tire, but I've had good experiences in the past near Richmond, Virginia, so I made the over two hour round trip. I wrote in the instructions that the valve stem was leaking and needed to be replaced. When I arrived and asked about the valve stem, the replacement promise was reiterated. I was told this was a normal part of tire replacement at Discount Tire. The tires were installed efficiently and I was on my way in less than an hour. The next morning the new tire was noticeably low. I looked and found that one of the two valve stems had been replaced but the other had not. The leaky valve stem was NOT replaced as promised despite the very specific instructions asking for its replacement.

I called and got the apology I was hoping for, along with promises to get it repaired first thing in the morning. I made sure the customer service rep on the phone was aware of the error and knew I was taking a two hour round trip. I made another first appointment of the day for a valve stem replacement and made the hour drive to the shop.

The efficiency of the store was gone. I was the first customer there at the grand opening, but somehow this routine replacement for a botched repair got left behind by the technicians in the bay discussing their events from the night before and leaving my truck unrepaired for over 45 minutes. I watched through the showroom window as my truck's tire was removed and left unrepaired while the three technicians chatted and laughed and then moved on to another car. Finally, 45 minutes later, I called Discount Tire's 800 number to file my claim. So I walked over to the desk and pointed through the glass window at my truck, which was waiting for the promised quick fix while the technicians gathered for another personal conversation. I knew it was personal because I got out and stood at the door behind my truck and listened.

The manager tried to transfer me to another service consultant, but I made my point. The technicians dispersed when the manager spoke to them and the repair was done just before the hour mark. I made the 1 hour trip home and went to check the air pressure. Valve stem was replaced, but valve stem cap was not installed. Fairly easy to remedy, but just sloppy. I can't believe the manager didn't follow up with the repair shop knowing the shop didn't do the installation right the first time.

Replacing two tires at Discount Tire required two trips and a small final touch up (valve stem cap) done by me. Without a doubt, I went through more than a dozen other tire stores to become a Discount Tire customer. The next day the manager called me. I thought this was a positive turn of events. I was wrong. He offered me two free tires that I didn't need. So I declined. I suggested that since he had my credit card information that he make an adjustment that he felt was fair for the inconvenience and sloppy follow-up.

I waited over 10 days and no adjustments were made. I suppose the manager of Discount Tire on Plank Road in Fredericksburg, Virginia thinks that breaking the promises he made the first time and then not managing the facility staff and not making an adjustment to the bill is the right thing to do. . to do. It is not!

Over the years I have told many of my friends and family of my satisfaction with Discount Tire in Chester, Virginia and elsewhere. Now I'm on a campaign to let you know that my recent experiences with Discount Tire have completely changed my mind. There is no reason to go out of your way to spend your money at Discount Tire. The opposite is true. Go to another network that delivers on its promises and values ​​your time. Management sets the culture of the business and can have the greatest impact on customer retention. Discount Tire on Plank Road in Fredericksburg has a very poor culture of inspecting their work, making and breaking promises and failing to deliver after realizing they haven't.

Bennie de Evansville, INVerified Appraiser

Original review: February 4, 2023

My daughter had a tire fixed (a nail right in the center), it should have been an easy straight patch on the inside, which is what they did. Fast forward a few weeks... the same tire went flat and a tire pressure sensor was bad so I called them a DAY BEFORE and made an appointment for 5:15am (their opening time). 5:45 they finally take her car back to fix the leak and she leaves soon after to go home and they never touched the sensor. Closes at 6pm. so apparently no time to get it right and doesn't give a damn about the customers time... Time which means now it has to be taken to ANOTHER shop ANYWHERE BUT TIRE DISCOUNT to get it fixed properly. Raben Tire Evansville here we come . You go to a discounted location and get a discounted service! I will not be returning or recommending this place to anyone. Respectfully, Bennie **Evansville IN

Original review: January 19, 2023

I took my daughter's car while she was on leave and it had satin black bbs wheels, it had low miles on the tires so we asked to keep them and put them in the car, she wanted more aggressive tires, came home with no tires and noticed two big ones Circular scratches on 2 wheels on one side, they were deep and large. I called the store right away and they asked me for pictures when they were closing and they didn't come back, they sent it and my daughter had to drive to the base in Co. so i called on monday because it was saturday.

They said they never received an email so I repeated and sent it several times and this continued, when I spoke to the manager about it he said he never received pictures but mentioned after looking at them he said it was an employee who didn't use the correct item to assemble. I asked him why he said he never looked at pictures but then he said oh I meant he was probably lying. Another employee said he won't replace the wheels which cost 2k each and sued us. He mentioned spoiled servicemen who got discounts and complained, he was in shock after 45 years of using them. Disgusting.
