1 star is too high a rating for this service department. We needed tires on a vehicle. We were told by the service technician, Nathan, there was a model that was eligible for $100 rebate. 2 months later with Nathan's self proclaimed "best effort", Nathan has yet to produce the rebate as promised.

Woody's Auto Repair Service
Excellent Service! Our Blazer took a crap on us while driving down 1st St. and we had walked over to see about getting some help. We had no money to pay at the moment and asked if someone could tell us where to start. Woody took a look and tried to fix it for us free of charge. It turned out to be a fuel pump issue and could not be fixed that day. We had just moved to the area and had no one to call to take us home. Woody offered to give us a ride down the street to our apartment. Woody will be getting my business form now on. Highly recommended!

IN And Out Auto
This is a horrible, dishonest company to do business with. Purchased a vehicle on Saturday and started having transmission problems on Monday. Was told that it was not their problem and that they had no idea what happened with the vehicle after we left the lot. Didn t even put 200 miles on it. Independent mechanic said transmission was bad for a while and any mechanic who took high school automotive would have caught the problem. Will never do business with these guys, Shawn or Troy, again.
Tips & Advices
Wheel caster is the angle created by the steering pivot points, from the front to the back of the vehicle. It is positive if the line angles forward, and negative if it angles back. A positive caster typically makes the car or truck more stable at higher speeds.
The camber angle of a wheel is the measured angle in degrees, between a wheels vertical alignment, perpendicular to the road. Wheels perfectly perpendicular to the road are at 0 degrees. This is considered ideal to prevent uneven wear on the surface of the tire and also to maximize standard performance. This is part of the alignment of the vehicle and can be adjusted for performance purposes.
Wheels can absolutely affect gas mileage. Larger, heavier wheels and tires create added weight to the car, generally decreasing mileage; lighter-weight wheels are prone to enhancing gas mileage.
As long as the wheels are made by an accredited manufacturer or machine shop, they are safe to use within the boundaries set forth by the manufacturer. There can be exceptions with random wheel failures, but, generally, they are completely safe as long as they are installed correctly and driven within the guidelines set forth by the manufacturer.
Changing wheels can affect the performance of the car. Size, width, and weight are among the factors that affect performance. Some wheels emphasize straight-ahead performance, usually associated with drag racing, while others are associated with performance and handling, while still others are purely ornamental in nature. Tires have much more impact on performance than wheels, however.
