Sears Auto Expands Amazon Tire Partnership Nationwide

Sears Auto Center has expanded its ship-to-store tire partnership with Amazon, allowing customers to have tires shipped to, and installed at, any Sears Auto Center nationwide, including Alaska and Hawaii. The deal applies to any brand of tire.

Sears teamed with Amazon in May and initially launched the program at 47 Sears Auto Centers in eight metropolitan areas.

“The response from Amazon customers around the program has been extremely positive,” Mike McCarthy, vice president and general manager of Sears Automotive, said in a statement.

The ship-to-store option is integrated into the checkout process. Customers select their tires, the Sears Auto Center, and their preferred date and time for the tire installation. The Sears Auto Center then contacts them to confirm their appointment.

The bundled price for tire installation includes wheel balancing, a valve stem or tire pressure monitor rebuild kit, and the tire disposal fee.
