Pope Davis Tire and Automotive
I am thankful for the people who work at Pope Davis Tire & Automotive, located at 1531 Taylor Street, downtown Columbia, SC. Ela (the administrative assistant) met me with compassion, honesty, and a cup of hot chocolate...and I am nobody special. My vulnerable state would have been easy to take advantage of: 98 Chevy in need of engine repair (not to get too specific), which included a first estimate of, at least, $1,300!The mechanic I met (please ask for a first name), met my eyes with integrity after he evaluated my car and diagnosed the problem. After decades of experience he pinpointed the problem, and it was not according to the first diagnosis: He told me the problem was less complicated, my car was worth fixing, and it would cost less. This was a pleasant surprise.So, I entrusted my trusty car to them. They dropped me off at a car rental service, took care of my car over the weekend, and delivered as promised. My car is in good shape now. What a relief! I am thankful to have done business with an automotive company of noble character.

We took our Mazda 6 to the store to have an oil change & put the temporary spare on the vehicle because the rim cracked. They were very professional & courteous. They went out of their way to help us. They are MUCH BETTER than the Tire Kingdom on Two Notch neat Target.

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.
