Treadwell™ - Your Personal Tire Guide
There are over 210 million drivers in the U.S., and you better believe that we all need different things from our vehicles (and their tires). That’s why it’s our belief that when it comes to buying tires for your vehicle, there's no such thing as the perfect or best tire. What does exist is the right tire for your needs.
But what does "the right tire" actually mean?
How does Treadwell™ work?
Even just a couple of minutes of online research on tires can make you want to give up. With so many technical terms, sizes, codes and types, it’s certainly not for the faint of heart.
Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, intimidating and even deflating. Treadwell™ is here to change that.
But for those who actually need that "right tire" right now: that's why Discount Tire created treadwell™.
Treadwell™ was purpose-built to personalize and deliver the optimal tire recommendations for your vehicle – on down to the year, make, model and trim – as well as for your budget, commute, driving style, location, safety needs and more.
