It isn’t always easy or even possible to come up with the full purchase amount for large purchases like tires and wheels. At Tire Agent we understand that and are committed to bringing you options for alternative tire and wheel financing.  One amazing tire finance company we have partnered with is Affirm. Founded in 2012, Affirm became a financial olive branch to many struggling consumers starting in 2017. Because their model provides point of sale purchase loans to consumers at a fixed simple interest rate, they have become a consumer friendly, transparent, financial-tech giant. 


  • Low Acceptance Threshold: One of the greatest benefits to buying tires with Affirm is their acceptance threshold. Affirm works with all credit types, including those who have yet to establish any credit history. This makes them an appealing option for potential borrows in all financial situations. 

  • Multiple Payment Plan Options: Even better, buying tires with Affirm offers versatility and flexibility in payment plan options. This means that you will be able to find a payment plan option that works with your pay schedule. That kind of payment flexibility, makes Affirm one of the few who understand working with their customers rather than against. Also they require as little as $0 down and their simple interest rates range from 10%-30%, based upon your credit worthiness. 

  • Complete Transparency: You don’t need to worry about hidden fees, or compounded interest, or what if you pay off your loan early. As we alluded to above, Affirm prides itself on its transparent model. You will know all the details of your contract when you buy tires with Affirm prior to finalizing your purchase. Affirm is simple and straightforward, just like tire buying should be. 


With Affirm you can finance countless brands of tires from Tire Agent. Get financed for top of the line tires from Goodyear, Pirelli, Continental, BF Goodrich, and more! If you are seeking middle of the road tires that blend quality and affordability, pick yourself up a set of Mastercraft, Firestone, Falken, Nitto, Nexen, or Toyo tires. Even if you only need an affordable economy tire from Lemans, Kelly, Presa, Otani, or Armstrong - you can get a payment plan for them as well. 


Applying for Affirm is a simple 3 step process:

  1. Enter the make, model and year of your vehicle, or your tire size and add the tires to your cart to begin the checkout process. 

  1. When you go through checkout, you will provide shipping information and confirm your tire selection. After that, you will continue to the payment page, where you can select the Affirm plan to start the application.

  1. If approved, you will see all terms, payment schedules, and final purchase price, and be able to select this method of payment.

That’s it! When you buy tires with Affirm you just complete an easy to fill in application, and upon approval, you will be able to complete your purchase. It doesn’t need to be complicated. We believe that and so does Affirm. That’s why we are happy to offer them as a payment plan option to you.
