Plaza Tire Service
The Plaza Tire on Kingshighway is the biggest scam there is. I will give very specific detail. I took my 1999 Toyota Camry in for a oil change, no more no less, it was very simple. THey then come and tell me that i have a powersteering leak and my rack and pinion is loose which could cause a rattle. I decline any repairs because my powersteering is fine and has been for around a month now that I have had the vehicle after the oil change. I started noticing that my car started vibrating weird around my front left brake, an area I had no problems at all before the oil change. I decided to take my car to a friends shop to find out why randomly had a vibration and what I found has made me extremely upset. Within 5 minutes my friend found the problem. A bolt the secures my caliper to the caliper housing had been removed. Don't confuse me with saying it fell out, it was perfectly removed. All i had to do was buy a new bolt and screw it back in. For those who haven't worked on their own cars before those bolts don't come out by themselves and if by some extremely odd chance it does unscrew slightly the bolt will snap inside the housing before it will perfectly unscrew itself. At a minimum the housing threads will be damaged which did not happen.I had heard horror stories from some people before but i decided to see for myself. Add this to the list of people who will never go back to plaza tire and know that this message will be told to as many people as I possibly can.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
