Bought a set of tires years ago; good experience. But the mechanical services are awful. We paid $1700 to have our truck gone through; they returned it with air in the brakelines. Brakes went out, truck was totalled.I had an appointment at 8am for alignment; I waited for a half hour: no one was using the alignment bay. After complaining they finally took my car in the shop. The mechanic said I needed parts which were only available from a dealer. Google found the parts easily available anywhere.I found them to be unfriendly, unprofessional and unknowledgeable.

I've been doing business here for 16 years and my family has for over 30. Great service. Good mechanics. Always fair and willing to work with us. Willing to offer us advice on all our car projects whether they do the work or we do.

They Broke a TPMS sensor on my vehicle and wanted me to pay to have it repaired. I talked to the owner Tommy Douglas and he insisted that I pay to have it repaired even though I did not brake it and his service tech did. Do not do business with this place.
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.
