Today, eBay Motors announces a significant expansion to its tire installation offering that gives shoppers a more convenient buying experience.

In addition to accessing a larger selection of easily searchable inventory, users can choose a preferred local installation provider from more than 5000 locations nationwide and seamlessly book their service – simply enter tire size details and select a local shop for shipping and installation.

eBay Motors is bringing access to the service within a five mile radius of the average shopper together with tire installation partners CarAdvise and SimpleTire, and trusted shops like Firestone and PepBoys.

The expansion follows the recent launch of eBay Guaranteed Fit, and continues to underscore the marketplace's commitment to streamlining the shopping experience and driving even more confidence amongst its buyers.

Here's how it works:

Convenient Tire Installation, Delivered
More than 75 percent of tires on eBay Motors are now eligible for installation services, including a wide selection of inventory from top brands like Goodyear, Bridgestone, Pirelli, Michelin and more, all sourced from reputable sellers.

Now through July 2, shoppers can enjoy free installation when they purchase a set of new tires. To get started, simply navigate to eBayMotors.com/tires and follow these steps:

  • Input tire size details to browse new tires that come with installation
  • Add tires to cart to choose a local installer from the trusted partner network; tires will ship directly to the service center
  • Look for an email or phone call from eBay Motors' partners who will guide appointment scheduling and completion of the service
  • Visit the shop to complete the installation

Through July 2, buyers can get free installation using code FREEINSTALL, but as always, read those terms and conditions carefully - eligibility may depend on specific size and seller requirements.

When eBay first announced Parts and Accessories would be next in line for the "vertical focus" playbook, it was clear that fitment and installation would be key points to the strategy.

Will we see eBay expand on this concept even further and offer installation service for other parts in the future?

eBay Motors P&A - Vertical Focus On Fitment & Installation
eBay Motors Parts & Accessories vertical strategy is focused on fitment first, but installation may be key component too.

It's also bit odd that eBay mentioned the Guaranteed Fit program in this press release without noting that wheels and tires are explicitly excluded from the fitment guarantee program.

What items are excluded from eBay Guaranteed Fit?
Tires and wheels are currently excluded from eBay Guaranteed Fit. We will still confirm which tires and wheels are compatible for your vehicle using the checkmark. Your tires and wheels may still be eligible for a return under our eBay Money Back Guarantee.
