Terrible customer service (on 10/3/2016) due to the fact that a hub was torn up by the technician but I was told I would be responsible for fixing it. I took my work truck in for a simple flat repair on one of the tires. Repair was done in a timely manner. I watched the technician cross thread the stud and lug nut, essentially ruining it. As I go to pay for the repair the person who checked me out told me that the lug and stud were ruined and he told me that he had found 2 places for ME (not them) to possibly obtain replacement parts. When I questioned their responsibility in this matter I was told that even if I bring in the replacement part that I would be charged $90+ an hour, for the repair to be done...a repair on a part that THEIR technician tore up!!! This is terrible customer service! As a business owner, I have had to pay for things I've torn up on numerous occasions. I do lawn care so I have paid for several windows to be repaired, both home and automobile, ( because I broke them while mowing), I have repaired many sprinkler heads that I have ran over while mowing and most recently I ran over a water line and I paid for that to be repaired. Based on the customer service I provide, I'm blown away by their lack of customer service! I will NEVER do business with Trax tires again.

Whew!! AC out in July...no fun. We got a recommendation to Trax Tire in Gulf Shores. Tourists having to "go for it". They gave us a quick appointment, worked it up, put dye in to find the leak. Fixed the problem, refilled the coolant and sent us out the door. Just above $100!!! What a deal! These guys are the best.

Highway Robbery! The mgr. Shawn, has a nice smile with a trustworthy look, but watch out for the knife! This guy robbed me blind. I spent several thousand dollars on both of my cars and BOTH of them are still having the original problem I took them in for. He keeps telling me it needs something else. I dont know much about cars but they shouldnt take advantage like that, my final visit took the cake,. I spent 225.00 to fix the airand the next day it didnt work so when i brought it back he said it needed a compressor and would cost 800 dollars i could not get any credit of the 225 he just charged me for. that would be 1,025.00 for a compressor on a 2000 oldsmobile.He didnt even put it up on the lift or use any equipt,. to give me this diagnosis. i have more to say about other instances but not wasting my time., I didnt know any better but when I showed thousands of dollars worth of work to people who know theya said I was robbed. He also put 2 different size tires on my daughters corvette when she bought 4 new tires then said he couldnt do a balance , he had no proper equipt. to do a vet! Why put the tires on in the 1st 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.
