Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. They don't sell to sell you stuff. They eecommend what you need. I went in wanting one thing and they could have sold me that but they showed me the concerns they had (and they were right) so I ended up buying a different item at a cost savings to me. Any other place would have just took the money and blamed me for a poor decision. I highly recommend them and will be bringing my vehicle back for other repairs.

Great shop. Being from out of town and having a flat tire which needed to be replaced I was so impressed with the honesty of the owner. Managed to get another tire to match the bad one,and therefore I only needed one front tire.. Owner is so knowledgable and explains everything to you that is going on. I'm writing this for customers like me that don't know where to go.. I wish he was close to our home in VA
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.
