RoboTire Installs First System at Discount Tire Outlet

Aug. 8, 2022

RoboTire has installed its first automated tire mounting system at a Discount Tire store - an outlet in Fountain Hills, Ariz.

RoboTire says its system uses "machine learning, artificial intelligence, high-definition cameras, proprietary software and advanced robotics" to change four tires on a passenger vehicle in less than 25 minutes.

The system "can easily integrate into tire shop operations and RoboTire provides operator training for a service center's current tire technicians."

Discount Tire's parent company is an investor in RoboTire, which is ramping up manufacturing at its Plymouth, Mich., headquarters and will be "scaling the delivery of systems throughout North America in the coming months."

"We are excited to be the first to market in our space with RoboTire's technology," says Tom Williams, chief experience officer at Discount Tire.

"With our Discount Tire expert people operating RoboTire systems, we will make the workplace safer and the experience easier as we hope to continue to reduce customer wait times and take care of more and more customers," he adds.
