I had sold a Jeep to a gentleman from Indiana, and the new tires on the Jeep had not been properly balanced by the tire company in Richmond VA, so the buyer stopped in to this place and found the guy working to be the most polite and respectable gentleman he had ever dealt with. So I would like to thank your business and its great to know good people still exist in this world. If I am ever in your town I will make sure I stop by and shake your hand and tell you how much it was appreciated.

Had to get a tube replaced in an large (and heavy) Ag tire in Charlottesville Store. It was brutally cold outside. The staff was great - they helped unload (and more importantly - load) the tire. I'll be back.
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.
