Discount Tire
Evidently someone put a glass bottle underneath my tire and I proceeded to back over it, which left a gash in my tire enough to hear the seep. Discount tire was the closest tire place and I was in an emergency while on the clock for work, so I pulled in for help. Help is what I didn't receive even if I wanted to pay for it.Because the cut in the tire was right on the edge of the side wall, Discount tire would not service me. My only choice there was to buy a whole new tire, which is of course not practical to a common folk like myself.Discount tire was kind enough to put some air in my tire and send me on down the road, and luckily I had a friend in town to go to.He recommended North Hall Tire. When I got to North Hall Tire, not only did they service me quickly, but they did it for FREE.. Of course I tipped.I would say that the lesson here is to support our local tire shops, because they'll actually support the community and be there when we need them. Corporate places like Discount Tire just won't be there when you really need them.

Rio Balsas
Just visited Rio Balsas for the first time, started with the normal chips and salsa. The salsa had no flavor other than tomatoes. Ordered the guacamole and it had tomatoes and onions but no flavor other that avocados. For the lunch, I ordered the dinner enchiladas. I asked about the sauce and was told that it was a creamy red sauce. When it came, the sauce looked like chili oil. The beef was greasy, the chicken was good and the cheese was ok because a couldn't open the enchilada to get the cheese out from the oil. Overall a bad experience and I'm not planning in going back.

Angle Automotive
I have been going to Hayes Oakwood for years and been disappointed for years but not knowing where else to go, I found Angle Automotive and they diagnosed and replaced a light bulb blowing out problem I have had for a long time that several trips to Hayes that didn't correct it and talking my way out of 2 traffic tickets, in an hour and a half it is fixed. Thank you very much, now I can drive to work in the mornings and not worry about getting pulled over. I and my Husband will now be going to you in the future for repairs. Thanks Dawn and Mike.

Fajita's
We live in Atlanta but come to Gainesville regularly to our Lakehouse. Although we consider ourselves "foodies" and eat out all the time at Atlanta's many amazing restaurants, this restaurant is one of our absolute favorites. We never get tired of it. The food is very fresh, the menu is a reasonable size and not overwhelming, and they have some excellent fish tacos and other dishes. The service is perfect and we can always get a table. It's our favorite in Gainesville and our favorite Mexican restaurant across cities!

North Hall Tire and Wheel
North hall tire has been able to beat every tire store I have called by at least 50 bucks for the same tire. They do amazing work Iv had them put on my lift, aline my front end, rebuild my front end and I got new wheels and tires threw these guys. Personally my bumper was a little bent so my tire scrubbed and before I even had to ask they had done told me and said that they would fix it right there on the spot just because they didn't want me to mess up my new tires. They will always have my business.

Rogers Automotive
I had a concern about my daughters brakes and took her car in today to have them repaired. They removed and adjusted them for about 1 hour and put them back. NO CHARGE. THEY SAID THEY WERE OK! Pads looked OK. This is the second time Rogers Automotive could have charged me for a repair and said I didn't need it. What a blessing to have a repair shop where I feel the family owned business will look out for me and my family! He has worked on two of my other cars also and the repair work was excellent.

Rogers Automotive
I took in my vehicle several times, concerned about a check engine light and then hesitation and surging when starting the vehicle. Each time my mind was put at ease and the owners talked with me at length about the problem. Mr Rogers fixed the surging problem and then refused to charge me, stating that he wanted to ensure it was 100% fixed. It is running great now! Thank you for your honesty and hard work. I'm paying it forward!

Automotive Services and Performance
This place is Wonderful. The husband and wife that own it are the sweetest people you will ever meet. I used them for my ignition interlock device so I had to take my car monthly. They were so accommodating to me and my long work hours. I really felt like they sincerely wanted to help, and I will always keep them in mind for future automotive needs. I highly recommend these guys!!!!

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.
