Tire-Rama
I won't be going back to Tire Rama. Over the years I've gone there for virtually every car need I've had, but their service this last time was TERRIBLE. I called them the afternoon before taking my car in and asked if I could get a tune-up on my car the next morning. They told me no problem, if I got it in by 8 they should have it ready by 11. I called again in the morning and they still said those times were good. So I dropped my car off at 8. They told me they would have it in the shop within an hour and give me a call once they'd run their diagnostics and saw exactly what it needed. I hadn't heard back by 9, but I waited. Once 10:00 rolled around, I called and was told the car hadn't been seen yet, but would be in the shop next. About a half hour. When 11 rolled around and I still hadn't heard anything I called again, and they told me they would check to see when it would be ready. The guy put me on hold. I was on hold for 15 minutes before I started WALKING down to the shop. They ended up picking up the phone again 30 minutes later when I was half a block away from the shop. It was now 11:45 and I really needed the car by noon, but I could put my appointment off until 1:00 if I really *had* to. I asked if that would be enough time to finally take care of my car, and they finally gave me an honest answer of "no," that wouldn't be enough time. They claimed to have just one other car in the shop ahead of me (still--4 hours after I'd dropped it off) and then they could get to mine. I've gotten good service from Tire Rama before (and when it was Alton's) but their shoddy service this time--plus forgetting about me on hold for 45 minutes (43:52 according to my cellphone's log) really put me off of them. It wouldn't have been so bad if they'd given me an honest time estimate, but they kept pushing it back and really ended up wrecking my day's schedule. Absolutely terrible service this time and absolutely zero regret shown on their part either for the time I spent waiting for my car or the time I spent waiting on hold.

Best Tire
These guys have always been the very best and honest mechanics. As a female Im used to being talked down to - these guys have never once done that. They're always extremely friendly, cool and I actually enjoy the time I spend in there when servicing my vehicle. Good and honest prices and top notch work. A+++

Nancy was amazing. She made me feel important and made me feel like i mattered as a person. She was very honest with me about my options and prices she showed me more than one vehicle that would fit my best interest. She is the best sales rep i have ever encountered i will refer people here always.

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.
