Absolutely love this family business! I was recommended to then by one of my former co-workers, and I was so lucky to receive this suggestion. They are so fantastic. I go to them regularly for oil changes and I just had some mechanical work done after a minor accident. First of all, the work these people do is quality. Also, their customer service is top-notch.The woman who works at the front desk is so sweet and friendly to talk to. She remembers you as an individual and not just as another customer in a line of customers. All the mechanics treat you with respect, give reasonable time estimates and their price points are completely fair: no surprises. They never rush you through talking about your car and any problems you might be having. This is so nice, especially being a young woman (21 years old) who often feels spoken down to at other car maintenance establishments, especially at my dealership's mechanic. I have no mechanical/car knowledge, but they respect me nonetheless and make me feel like a valued customer at every single meeting. Thank you for your wonderful service Ray Carr!

We have always taken our vehicles to Ray Carr Tires of Harrisonburg Virginia. NOT ONCE HAVE THEY EVER DISAPPOINTED ME. They insure the safety of our vehicles for my family and I. Eddie and his staff of highly skilled mechanics are to be applauded! It is so hard to find service shops you can fully trust, BUT this shop is and always has been on the VERY TOP OF MY LIST. I travel on the highways so much and having the confidence of my tires, that ride so smooth "silk", to the purring of my engine it's all to the credit of the RAY CARR TIRES OF HARRISONBURG VIRGINIA TEAM! They always give me great advice and time to make me and my family feel safe on the road. Their pricing can not be beat either. Thank you so much RAY CARR TIRES OF HARRISONBURG VIRGINIA!Dave

Took my van in to have tires mounted-balanced and a alignment. They said it needed a tire rods and rear control arm bushing. They never called me back to tell me the van was ready. When I got there my van was on the alignment left with the old tires still on it. They quoted me $529 for the work. I told them to just put the new tires on it. They told me not to drive it far. I drove it South Carolina worried because what they told me. They clipped the paint off of my mags when doing the alignment.

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.
