Hidden in the back of a lot of Walmarts are an automotive section of the store. You can tell you are getting close when you start to smell the rubber in the air. The walls are lined with different tires that they have for sale. If you are in a more conventient location, then you’ll have access to a Walmart Auto Care Center
Tire and Lube Center. You can go to these for the tire purchase and installation as well as a breadth of other options for your car like oil changes, brake fluid replacement, tune ups and a few other services.
Walmart Auto Care Center
You won’t be able to get major repairs for your car or even a majority of maintenance work. These stations are set up to provide minimal services in a minimal amount of time. That means that you will be able to get the following for your vehicle at a Walmart Auto Care Center
Tire and Lube:
- Basic tire installation
- Battery services
- Oil changes
- Fuel system services
- Wiper blade installation
- Air filter installation (cabin)
- Air filter installation (engine)
- Headlight restoration or installation
- Miniature bulb installation
- Chassis Lubrication

Walmart Tire Coupons
They usually don’t have coupons set up and available for tires at Walmart. What you can find instead are the “roll back prices” that they advertise in their weekly circulars. There are usually at least two pages of discount tires for sale at Walmart in these flyers.
If you find the tires you want, either in store or online, you can check the tire manufacturer’s website to see if there are any mail in rebates that you can use on top of your Walmart discount. These rebates take some time to process, so you’ll have to wait some time before you get your money back, but they are usually significant amounts that are worth waiting for. Often though, you’ll get something like a prepaid Visa or Mastercard, which you can also use like cash at any store. I find this easier than getting a check that I’d have to cash.
You can find your weekly ad by clicking the link at the top of the Walmart.com website. Put in your zip code to get the closest Walmart to you so that you can get your own local deals and discounts. Just remember to check for rebates to save more!
