    We all like discount however the biggest thing I see with Discount Tires they get the balance close but not 100% seems a lot of the kids working their try to work too fast that's just my observation cuz I've had to have my tires rebalanced at other shops after after leaving their driving back to my house 75 miles from there that's my only gripe otherwise they're fine the prices are good but the the employees there are very very friendly and try to help does it take more time to get the balance 100% thanks
