What are run flat tires?
Run flat tires are tires that are made with a sturdier construction. In case of air pressure loss, they are able to withstand the weight of the vehicle and be driven on for 50 miles up to the speed of 50 mph. These tires are usually made for vehicles without space for spare tires.
What does the 'load and speed' rating mean?
The load and speed ratings note how much weight and what speeds the tire can handle. In other words, they note the tire’s maximum load carrying and driving capability. Is it not recommended to surpass the tire’s load and speed capacity. For more information please see our blog post on the subject.
Do the prices listed include installation?
The price does not include installation, mounting and balancing.
Is it safe to use my credit card?
Yes. Our site meets and goes beyond all security standards. The site is secured by an SSL Certification with 256-bit encryption.
Does the tire have outline white letters (OWL) or does it have a whitewall (WW)?
We guarantee that if the representing photo shows the outline white letters (OWL) or the whitewall (WW) then the tire will have the OWL or WW. If the listing shows black wall photos then the tires do not have OWL or WW.
How much is shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico?
While we do offer shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, the shipping fee is expensive. FedEx usually charges between $150-$250 per tire, and we are unable to use any other carrier.
Can shipping charges be reduced or discounted?

Can I pick up the tires from your local warehouse in Allentown, PA?

When we start offering this service again, please note that any and all online orders or phone orders will be shipped so please contact us at 1-866-440-0177 so we can set the tire(s) aside for you for the same day hold.
Is the price listed per tire or for all the tires in the listing?
The price is listed per tire. We do our best to show you the total price based on the number of tires you select to add to your cart.
How old is the tire/tire service life?
Most of our listings have the year of manufacture noted in them. The manufacture year of the tire is specified in the product description. By making a purchase, the buyer agrees to receive the tire with the age stated in the listing. In cases where there is no production year is disclosed, the Buyer likewise agrees to receive a Tire in New condition regardless of its age. We do not accept returns based on the age of the tires.

If you are interested in receiving the military discount please send your military ID to our e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and our Customer Service team will get you taken care of. Thank you for your service.
What is the difference between radial and bias ply tires?
The main difference is that Radial tires’ steel belts allow the sidewall and the tread to function as individual features, meaning the sidewall can flex without affecting the footprint. Because the plies in bias-ply tires run from sidewall to sidewall, the sidewall is very stiff, and any flexing of the sidewall is reflected in the tires’ footprint. Bias-ply tires can also overheat more easily due to the layers of rubber plies, whereas the steel belts in radial tires help to dissipate heat better.
Does FedEx need me to be at home to deliver the order?
You do not need to be at home when FedEx delivers. If the FedEx driver deems your neighborhood safe enough, they will leave your order by your front door.
Will this tire fit my vehicle?
Our website offers a Search by Vehicle option, but these programs are only capable of showing the Original Equipment Size of a certain vehicle and the result might not be accurate. The safest method is to check the size of your current tires, located on the tire’s sidewall. Priority Tire does not take responsibility in regards to the return shipping in the case of the wrong size being ordered, even if the Search by Vehicle option is used.
How often do you receive new tires/update your inventory?
We receive new tires on a daily basis and we keep the website up to date. Everything we currently have in stock is listed on our website.
Do you sell retreaded/blemished/defected tires?
We do not sell tires that have been damaged in any way. We do not sell retreaded tires, nor ones with manufacturing or cosmetic blemishes.
Do you offer a rebate?
Sometimes we have special promotions that include rebates. Please check out the Deals page for more information.
Can I use Run Flat with regular tires?
Unfortunately, no. Run flat tires are made with a heavier construction that enables them to support the vehicle in case of air pressure loss. This construction is different from the structure of non-run flat tires. If they were to be used together on the same vehicle, they would cause the vehicle to not be as responsive, making it unpredictable.
