Discount Tire, the world’s largest independent tire and wheel retailer, opened its first location in Sumter to meet demand for tires and wheels in Sumter County. Located at 1055 Broad Street, the new tire store is next door to Waffle House in the Sumter Mall parking lot.

Founded in 1960, Discount Tire has grown from a one-man tire shop in Ann Arbor, Mich. into the nation’s leading tire retailer. Since 2013, Discount Tire has seen exponential growth, opening stores in 11 additional states and surpassing 1,000 stores in 2018. Including the new Sumter location, Discount Tire operates 14 stores in South Carolina, with plans for further expansion over the next couple of years.

Discount Tire employees guarantee the lowest prices and deliver personalized service to make tire buying easy and hassle-free while striving to serve as their customers’ trusted and convenient neighborhood tire retailer. As a service to drivers, Discount Tire offers customers free tire-pressure checks at its new Sumter location and reminds South Carolina drivers of tire safety tips including the importance of properly inflated tires. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Discount Tire is closed on Sunday.

Discount Tire sells a wide selection of leading tire brands including Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, BFGoodrich, Pirelli, Falken, Continental, and Cooper, along with more than 50 Discount Tire-exclusive brands and lines, such as Pathfinder and Wrangler Ultraterrain AT, that offer top value at an affordable price. Discount Tire also offers a variety of custom wheel brands including MB, Vision, American Outlaw, TSW, Liquid Metal, and Black Rhino. Customers can maximize their purchase by taking advantage of Discount Tire’s current rebates and promotions.
