Carlos' Tire Shop
My car overheated and broke down at night time between Santa Nella and Los Banos on I-5 on July 2nd which is 4th of July week. The California Highway Patrol dispatched a towing service that recommended me to use Carlos Tire Shop. I called and spoke to the Manager and asked if someone can take a look at my car and he said YES!! I actually called some other shop and NONE of them would look at my car because they're either short staffed or their mechanics and owners weren't in the shop because they were all on vacation. Carlos Tire Shop is not only a Tire Shop but they fix other mechanical problems as well. They work 7 days a week. I was very impressed!! Now who does that??? Only motivated and hard working people would do that who are willing to help any travelers and will go out of their way. The manager even called the rental car place for me. He was very resourceful, detail oriented and very sympathetic. The mechanic did what he supposed to do and caught something that other mechanic in Vegas wrongfully installed. No crooks nor rip offs here. He showed it to me. He is a great mechanic. As for price damage well any other place will charge me sky rocket tag. What do you expect...I have a ROVER!! My car didn't break down driving on a 100 heat back to LAS VEGAS on hwy 58. KEEP UP THE OUTSTANDING SERVICE!!! THANK YOU!!!

Les Schwab Tires
A HUGE thank you to Chris Les Schwab Tire Centers in Los Banos, CA. I called the shop at 7:00pm to have a nail taken out of my tire. Though they were closing up, he stayed, fixed my tire, and didn't even charge me. Now, that's what I call customer service! I promised to get my next set of tires from there, and to have my brakes inspected too. Thank you for your exemplary customer service and friendliness!!!! What an amazingly clean facility too. I'll be able to bring my son in with me next time, I know he'll enjoy the art table and the free popcorn. Thank you Chris!

Just went here for the first time today. Great service, friendly and clean. Very reasonably priced. Also, when you pull up in the parking lot someone runs out of the building to help you. I would recommend this place to eveyone!

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.
