Default Tire Warehouse - Monroe

The Tire Warehouse chain has be sold to Monro Muffler and Brake.
Not sure what will happen to the franchise Tire Warehouse shops.

Not to be confused with Monroe Shocks and Struts - a completely different company.

For tires and alignment I found the Laconia Tire Warehouse to be the best when purchasing such.

The Tire Warehouse in Laconia uses a "load" balancing machine - that simulates the weight of the car. Sounds like a better machine. I do not know enough about tires and balancing machines but I have always received the best at Tire Warehouse.

So now it will turn into a big chain type of store. Which to me is usually not for the better - from a customer perspective.

As best I know, they were already affiliated. The clerk at my local Monro said so over a year ago.

Looking to buy tires for a Honda and Silverado. Where are some of the other tire outlets that provide a good price and service in the Lakes Region?

Northern Tire in Ossipee or the Tire Guys in Farmington are both excellent.

Stratham Tire in Laconia has been very good to us over the past several years.

Default .... Goodyear Viva-3

The Plymouth Wal-Mart has Goodyear Viva-3 tires which is like getting a 100-dollar tire for 67-dollars. Only Wal-Mart sells the Viva-3 because Wal-Mart made a Viva-3 tire deal with Goodyear that makes it an entirely Wal-Mart tire. Buying your tires at Wal-Mart also gets you free tire rotation and free balancing for these tires, as long as you own them. It opens at 7:00-am, seven days/week, and does oil & filter changes for as low as $19.88. Tilton Wal-Mart has a bigger selection of tires than at Plymouth Wal-Mart. Four Viva-3's installed may cost you about $318 total, including everything; installed-balanced-disposal, depending on the size of your car's wheels.

Free Wifi happens inside the big Tilton Wal-Mart, but not yet in Plymouth, afaIk!

The Viva-3 isn't a performance tire, just a 60,000 mile tire for safe driving; it's black, round and looks like a tire .....ha-ha-ha .... and can be studded for an extra 8-dollars, and available with a much more aggressive winter tread if you want to run two sets of four tires or something, or if you live on Lower Beech Hill Rd, Campton; summer and winter.

Unfortunately, due to the 2012 elimination of the 30-dollar annual registration surcharge voted with the infinite wisdom of the 2012-NH legislature, which left the state with a 35-million dollar yearly highway shortfall, the NH State Police have been running on Viva-3 tires since about 2013 and have been pleasantly surprised with the performance ....ho-ho-ho.....it's a Dodge Charger running w/ Viva-3's ..... omg! And good grief....right now there are legislative minds hard at work, down in Concord, designing the so-called 'Prius Tax' as the plan to solve this 35m/yr hgwy shortfall?
