Djk Automotive Repair & Tire
in response to trica tuckers review, i was an employee at the time the customer had their vehicle towed into the shop inoperable. The customer picked up their vehicle and admitted to driving the vehicle for 1 1/2 years without changing the oil or any other servicing after the motor was replaced. the customer had the vehicle towed back to the shop after they blew the motor up and wanted it fixed free of charge after the one year warranty expired. Since the customer voided the warranty by not servicing the vehicle the BAR ( Bureau of Automotive Repair) found that the shop was not at fault. DJK/GJK offered to fix the vehicle when it was brought back at a discounted rate but customer was very irate and made numerous comments about being charged with murder charges over the outcome while supposedly on the phone with his lawyer while at the shop. if anything appeared to be "ghetto" it was the customer. if customer chooses to continue with these untrue and bogus remarks online DJK/GJK will be have no choice to seek legal actions for slander and deformation against the customer. DJK/GJK Automotive & Tire has been in business for over 16 years at the harbor city, ca location and prides itself on their quality customer service and automotive repairs.
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.
