Touchet Paint & Body
My paint matched perfectly and the body work repairs were unnoticeable. After wrecking before and another body shop in town did very poorly on repairing I did not want to go down that road again. So I asked different opinions from people at work, and on Facebook and after hearing nothing but great things of Touchets paint and body I decided to give them a try. Mr. Touchet and his guys made my car look flawless and completely new again. Being a woman I was afraid that a body shop would try to put the prices very high with out me knowing any difference, but Mr. Tim came and sat down next to me explaining all the prices and options of replacing or repairing. True professionalism and honesty with very spectacular service that was completed in the matter of no time. Would highly recommend!

Pep Boys Auto Parts & Service
Brought my car to Firestone to fix a grinding noise on my air conditioner compressor. They estimated the cost of repair to be $1512. I told them I couldnt afford this and asked if there was a cheaper way to fix it. They assured me it ALL had to be done. I finally went to PEP Boys and got it fixed within 3hrs for $250 by just replacing the clutch on the ac compressor which was all it needed. Seems to be some dishonesty going on at Firestone dont you think? Honest God fearing people working at this Pep Boys that fixed only what needed fixed without over charging. Dwayne, Chris, Frank, Jeremiah and Ric were all very helpful and deserve a raise!!

Brakes For Less
They installed a battery that was not the correct size for my car and caused the electrical system of my car to short out leaving me stranded in New Orleans. Autozone installed correct battery. When I got back to Lafayette, I went to the shop and explained the situation thinking I would be given a refund but manager said he couldn't refund me the cost of the battery. Owner called me at home and said he would refund me the cost of my battery. At first I was not pleased but am thankful that the owner did the right thing.

Zims Automotive
Very professional staff! Called for a rotate & balance and they were able to provide same day service. Prior to technician taking my truck into the shop he met with me to see if I was having any issues/problems with the tires. During the service the technician asked for me to go into shop so he could explain the problem that he found and was able to resolve. Truck was shaking at 45 & 74 prior to service but is now resolved. Very satisfied with the attention to detail and customer service provided!

Tyre Smart Inc
Excellent customer service! I came in to replace a worn tire. He took the time to explain and show how the tire wore out and how to notice it earlier in the future. He checked the other tires to make sure they were fine. I was able to watch as he installed the new tire. He checked the balance and tested for leeks. I was in and out of there all in under 10 minutes. Fast and skilled service at an affordable price! I couldn't recommend them more highly!

Touchet Paint & Body
These guys are the best in town. They repaired my truck in incredible time. The men at Touchets are true professionals. Their shop may not be the newest but their friendly attitude and great work prove that they are A+ with the BBB for a reason. Highly recommended!

These guys are great! I ruined a tire while traveling, and had a second one in bad shape. It was like a pit stop. They got me rolling in around 30 minutes at a very fair price. It was an excellent experience.
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.
