Since 2009, Pittsburgh-based startup Champtires has provided drivers around the United States with affordable, high-quality used tires through the company's website and its West Mifflin, Pa. warehouse.
Brad Rea, Champtires' founder and president, started the company after his previous career in the waste industry where he saw large quantities of high-quality used tires ending up in landfills. Rea was convinced that U.S. drivers-who were currently facing the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression-would appreciate an alternative to expensive, brand new tires. He was right.
Over the past five years, Rea has built the business from an online-only operation to a multi-faceted
e-commerce company with one local store in West Mifflin, PA that also offers installation services.
What makes used tires from Champtires such a great product for American consumers?
1. Inspection Process
Champtires only sells the highest quality used tires and puts each tire that enters its warehouse through
a thorough inspection process. Every tire is visually inspected and filled with air to eliminate tires
2. Tread Level
Most passenger tires typically start new with 10/32 of an inch of tread. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of
an inch is considered to be adequate. Champtires carefully and accurately measures all tires with
tread depth gauges.
3. Return Policy
Customer satisfaction is our number one priority. Champtires has a generous 14-day return policy.
