Tire Discounters Opens Largest New Store in Company’s History

Posted on

Tire Discounters, the largest independent, 100% family-owned tire and service retailer in the U.S., recently opened its biggest store location in the company’s 45-year history.

The new store, designed to meet the customer demand in the area, is located on the east side of Cincinnati in Eastgate (at 809 Eastgate South Drive) and replaces a smaller store in the area that moved to better serve customers. The store is 10,800 square feet, has 12 vehicle service bays to service Eastgate and Batavia residents’ vehicles safely and efficiently. 

“It’s extremely exciting to have the largest store in the company’s history open right here in the Eastgate, Batavia area,” said Garrett Burke, General Manager of the new store. The store’s opening serves as a career milestone for Burke, who started as a tire technician with Tire Discounters over a decade ago and now manages the company’s largest location. 

Expanded features at the Eastgate/ Batavia Tire Discounters include: 

  • Twelve service bays. Traditional Tire Discounter stores have six to ten service bays. The additional amount of space and service bays will allow for more vehicles to be assessed and serviced simultaneously to meet customer demands. 

  • State-of-the-art tire tread and alignment auditor technology. Customers pull their vehicles into a bay, directly driving over technology that is built into the floor. The vehicle’s tread depth on all four tires is immediately scanned as the car pulls in, and the results, shown in the form of red, yellow, and green lights, are displayed on the digital screen above the bay. The technology also reads the status of a vehicle’s brakes and checks the alignment within seconds. “Basically, it provides an autonomous measurement of a vehicle’s alignment and tire tread depths to identify a problem before tires start wearing prematurely or unevenly, drivability issues worsen, or stopping distance during braking is compromised,” Burke says. 

 
The new Eastgate/ Batavia location, and all Cincinnati-area locations, offer Skip the Shop, a vehicle and delivery service that includes online check-in, convenient vehicle pick-up, text updates, text-to-pay, and vehicle delivery to customers driveway or work.

Known for their friendly and honest customer service, Tire Discounters prioritization of customers and a focus on exceeding their expectations is one of the reasons why the company was recognized as Tire Dealer of the Year, a national industry award by Modern Tire Dealer Magazine.

Tire Discounters offers a full range of automotive services, including free alignment with the purchase of four tires with standard installation. Customers who chose standard installation also enjoy perks like lifetime pressure adjustments, rotation, and balancing in addition to warrantied parts and services.

The speed rating of a tire is based on U.S. Government standards for reaching and sustaining a specified speed. Typically, a tire with a higher speed rating results in better handling. Speed ratings apply only to the tire itself, and not to a particular vehicle. Putting a tire rated for a certain speed on a vehicle does not mean that the vehicle can be safely operated at the tire's rated speed.

The load range on a tire helps determine its ability to contain air pressure and its overall strength. Ranges are expressed using a number and the higher the number, the stronger the tire. These measurements are primarily for light trucks and SUV’s.

Tread depth is the distance between the top of the tread rubber to the bottom of the tire's deepest grooves.  In the United States, tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch.

A tire’s maximum load is the maximum amount of weight the tire is designed to hold. The tire’s load carrying capacity is directly related to the tire’s size and amount of inflation pressure that is actually used. Each load range has a assigned air pressure identified in pounds per square inch (psi) at which the tire's maximum load is rated.

The total width of the tire, including any raised features on the sidewall. 

This is how many layers of rubber and other materials are in the tire.  

The measurement, in inches, from rim flange to the other rim flange. 

The maximum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto. 

The minimum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto.  

A tire's section width (also called "cross section width") is the measurement of the tire's width from its inner sidewall to its outer sidewall (excluding any protective ribs, decorations or raised letters) at the widest point. 

What makes up a tire; each ply, the sidewall, the tread, and bead.  

This number will tell you how well the tire will disperse heat buildup. 

This is how much weight a tire is rated to hold.

A tire’s maximum inflation pressure (PSI) is the highest "cold" inflation pressure that the tire is designed to contain. When measuring a tire’s max PSI, it is important the tire is "cold," because warmer temperatures can cause the tire pressure to temporarily increase resulting with inaccurate readings. This measurement should only be used when called for on the vehicle’s tire placard or in the vehicle’s owners manual.

The mileage warranty of a tire indicates the number of miles that a tire is estimated to last. If a tire fails to last for the number of miles indicated by the warranty, the customer will be given credit from the tire manufacturer toward a new tire based on how many miles short of the estimate the tire fell. Some restrictions apply.

Components of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor wears over time.

A TPMS Service Kit is suggested each time a tire/wheel is serviced. If left unchanged, over time, these components of the TPMS may corrode, leak or fail.

Tire/wheel service is defined as when tire is removed from the wheel.

The represents the smallest and widest size wheels that are recommended by the tire manufacturer for the tire to be mounted on.
