Gearheads Auto & Truck Services
Reliable Honest and Fair to LadiesI just want you all to know that I had a great experience with Tony at Gearheads today. Although, it is never fun to spend money on car repairs, Tony made me feel at ease about the situation. By that, I mean, it felt like he was telling was actually true. I felt he was being honest during the whole experience. I called Gearheads yesterday , got Tony on the phone from the start, which is nice, to deal with just one person opposed to a bunch of different jarheads at a dealership service center. Anyway, Tony seemed to know the correct procedures and solutions right off the bat. It was pretty cool. I explained what the dealership had told me was the problem, and he commented on his opinions. As it turns, out he was right, and the overall cost of the service was 40% lower than what the 'big boys' wanted at the Jeep dealership. These guys do a great job - check em out!

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.
