Very impressed

I just wanted to thank Discount Tire for their amazing service: I had to wait no more than 30 minutes to get my new Eagle GTs installed, including TPMS rebuild and TPMS system reset! That's the fastest I've ever had a tire change! The staff was very courteous, and the facility was clean and professional.

I will definitely be recommending DT to anyone I know of who needs tires.

Yeah, one guy took off the wheels and brushed off the mounting face, another guy took them and stripped off the old tires, and another guy (I think) mounted and balanced the new ones. And I wasn't the only car at the shop .

Lucky you!

Safe to assume there are none in Canada or New York?

None in Canada, I don't think, but I'm sure there must be one in New York. Check their website, it lists store locations.
