SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Discount Tire/America's Tire has added windshield wiper replacement to the types of service it offers customers at its 1,090 locations in 36 states nationwide.
"Discount Tire is looking for new opportunities to offer services that take care of our customers and help keep them driving safe," Marcus Bolland, assistant vice president of the Scottsdale-based dealership, said.
"Customers tell us they appreciate the opportunity to complete an often overlooked safety check and parts replacement at the same time their tire or wheel service is performed. Replacing worn-out windshield wipers at our stores is a natural extension of our trusted expertise and quality service."
Prior to this, the Scottsdale-based dealership offered only tire and wheel replacement. The company does not offer alignments or any under-car or underhood services.
Discount Tire has struck a deal with wiper blade supplier Trico Products Corp. to use Trico-branded blades exclusively. The company said its stores will stock blades that fit 98% of cars and light trucks on U.S. roads.
Blades are available at prices ranging from $15 to $23 apiece. Discount Tire technicians will install the blades free. Customers also can install their blades themselves, the company said.
