Recently, I has been checking around on prices for tires on my 1994 Ford Ranger pickup truck. To my surprise the prices were through the roof, both shops quoted me about $440.00 for a set of 4 tires. 1st Chance Tire and Lavergne Tire Center usually has some good prices in Smyrna and Lavergne, but they both told me the prices are high because they are rare since no one uses them anymore.
Well, I had remembered a new company Express Pull and Save (www.Expresspullnsave.com)located next to Express Salvage and Express Metals on Dick Buchanan Road that had recently opened in Lavergne that sells preowned used parts. The concept is very simple you walk into their clean lobby and use one of several Kiosk that are setup and search the computer with your make and model and click print with a copy of the available vehicles on their large lot of several acres. I walked their lot and was surprised to see all the hondas toyotas Nissans Ford and Chevys including some civics accords camrys and even a few altimas and maximas. I paid the $2.00 fee they charge to walk their lot and to my surprise I found a 94 Ford Ranger with a set of mathcing wheel and tires. The wheels were the factory upgrades that looked like custom alloy wheels. I inquired about the price and to my surprise the tires were only $15.00 each and the wheels were $17.00 each. I went and grabbed one of their Gils Ace Hardware wheel barrels and took off the wheels and tires and hauled them up to the cashier for a total of $128, man I was thrilled. I not only got a great buy on like new tires, but made my truck look much nice as well. In the tough times were are living in FRUGALITY is in!
