CarAdvise LLC is adding the largest independent tire dealer in the U.S. to its platform of providers for tire and automotive service.

Discount Tire stores will be among the locations CarAdvise members can utilize for tire and wheel purchases and installation. CarAdvise allows members to compare prices for automotive services, and consumers and commercial fleets receive up-front discounts for services. Thousands of shops are on the platform, including Firestone Complete Auto Care and Tires Plus stores owned by Bridgestone, NTB and Tire Kingdom locations owned by TBC Corp., Pep Boys and Sears Auto Center locations.

"By increasing our national network of automotive service providers, our members have more options to handle all of their vehicle service and repair needs," says Greg Tepas, Founder and CEO of CarAdvise. "With this fantastic new partnership, our members can handle all of their tire need transactions directly from their electronic devices while taking advantage of purchasing power discounts by joining our fleet of members that's over 400,000 strong to date and growing incrementally daily."

Mark Marrufo, vice president of fleet operations for Discount Tire, says the company will work with CarAdvise to continue its focus on providing a safe and dependable experience to consumers. "Our first consideration is the safety of our customers and our people. With today's environment, it is even more Important! Utilizing the CarAdvise platform to search for tires and service, coupled with our 'Touchless Experience', provides the safety and convenience that our customers expect."

CarAdvise's online vehicle service program is designed to help drivers reduce vehicle tire service expenses while saving time and effort associated with maintaining their vehicle's tires. Through the platform's technology, drivers can schedule appointments, approve and pay for services, and view their service history all right from their digital devices. Through CarAdvise's "No Contact Car Care" platform, consumers can reduce the amount of person-to-person interaction, and thus reduce their incremental risks of exposure during the pandemic.
