How long does it take to get new tires installed?

I just bought four brand new tires for my car but I haven’t had the chance to get them installed. I want to have them installed during my lunch break tomorrow, but I’m concerned I won't have my car back in time. How long does it take to get new tires installed?

In general, it will take a professional ten minutes to change a tire. With four tires, you’re looking at roughly 40 minutes. Having your tires changed by a professional will be the most efficient, as they have the most advanced tools and skills to do the job.
However, when you are replacing all four tires, you may need to have them checked for alignment and wheel balancing to make sure your car won’t vibrate while you’re driving. This process may add an additional 45 minutes to the installation.
To be on the safe side, allow yourself at least one hour for the installation, alignment, and wheel balancing checks to be complete. You’ll be back on the road in no time!
