Buying used tires is an affordable, safe and eco-friendly option. But not all used tire sellers are created equally. It’s important to make sure you’re purchasing used tires from a reputable retailer, like Champtires.

“We test and inspect every tire that enters our warehouse,” said Brad Rea, president and CEO of Champtires. “There is a huge difference between safe and unsafe used tires. We use a diligent inspection process, combined with trained technicians and the best equipment on the market, to guarantee that our customers are satisfied.”

The Champtires Inspection process consists of three steps to ensure that only high-quality used tires without any holes or other defects are sold.

  1. Each tire is visually inspected for obvious defects such as nails, screws, broken beads and dry rot.
  2. Then, tires are air-tested on our state-of-the-art Matteuzzi specialty testing equipment.
  3. When a tire is purchased, it is given a final inspection and test before it ships.

“If you’ve ever bought a used car, you’ve bought and driven on used tires,” Rea said. “You have to make sure whatever business is selling them is trustworthy.”
