SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Discount Tire/America's Tire is partnering with the Automobile Club of Southern California, the largest motor club in the AAA federation, to launch a tire service program that offers flat repairs and tire replacements to AAA members in California who have a tire-related emergency.
The pilot program will deploy at Discount Tire/America's Tire retail stores in San Diego and Los Angeles.
At the stranded member's request, AAA's roadside assistance program will tow drivers to the nearest DiscountTire/America's Tire store for service. AAA members in San Diego and Los Angeles also will receive $10 discount per tire when they purchase any "better" or "best" tire.
"Discount Tire is always looking for new ways to provide our customers with value and peace of mind when it comes to their tires," said David Ginsberg, chief strategy and innovation officer at Discount Tire.
"We are passionate about great service, with particular emphasis on safety and quality. Our recommendations are based on data and science to best meet a customer's true needs. We are thrilled to extend our capabilities by partnering with AAA in Southern California for this pilot program. In addition to their legendary roadside assistance, they also share in our philosophy of putting customers and members as the top priority."
Discount Tire operates more than 1,000 stores in 35 states.
