Buying tires can be a hassle. Your main objective is to get the tires your car will work best on, at a great price, and installed quickly. Walmart can help. The retailer has just rolled out a variety of improvements that make buying and installing tires easier than ever. Using the convenient Walmart.com website or the Walmart app, customers can now search for tires that are a perfect match for the year, make and model of their vehicle and book an appointment to get them installed — all from the comfort of their home.
Some prefer the help of an Auto Care Center expert, so Walmart also launched a new interactive shopping experience on Walmart.com called Walmart Tire Finder. It allows customers to virtually interact with a Walmart Auto Care Center expert, who helps guide you through the tire buying process based on your driving environment, warranty, and budget preferences.
“We know selecting tires can be complicated, so we’ve made the intimidating process easy,” said Jon Freshman, vice president of digital services at Walmart U.S. “We’re giving our customers convenient digital options that bring our auto care center expertise right to their fingertips, helping them make smart decisions from anywhere. This is the latest example of Walmart removing pain points to create a simple experience that puts our customers at the center.”
If you have purchased tires from Walmart in the past or using the new app, please tell us in the comments below how it went.
