A Plus Tire
I've been going to A-Plus for my tires for years -- even now that I live way out in Williamson County, I will go out of my way to get tires replaced there. They've given me good deals on good used tires and even gone out of their way to serve me on occasion. They're not in the business of anything but tires, but I've gotten good advice there, and been saved from spending a lot of money on repairs I didn't need, based on their advice, which I trust -- and I haven't gone wrong yet by trusting them.Now, these are used tires, mind you, and once in a while I get one that doesn't last as long as I'd hoped. But usually, they last a good while, and save me considerable cash. They're fast (though they're often busy, so don't expect miracles), and just decent folks. I believe the owner's grandson is handling most of the business now, and you get that sense of going to a family business, where reputation and customer treatment mean something. I was surprised when I came to their site today (so I could give a family member the address) and found two bad reviews. I' ve always driven older-model cars and been happy with good used tires. Heck, I haven't even always had matching hubcaps, or even 4 at a time. If you spend $1,500 on custom wheels (like the guys who posted bad reviews), maybe it'd be worth going to a more expensive tire shop. But if you're someone who wants to keep rolling with decent rubber, without parting with too much of your moolah, then you aren't likely to go wrong at A-Plus.

Antique Archaeology
Great place to check out. Lots of stuff not for sale (marked "Mike's private collection"). Items that are for sale are outrageously priced. No "smalls" - - cheapest thing I saw was a scale for $200. Really wanted to buy a custom/unique light fixture, and would have spent $200-300, but they were all priced $400-600. I agree with the other review: if you want a mug, t-shirt, or the Pickers book, then it's worth stopping. Those are also outrageously priced. The mugs were $12.95, they were out of magnets, and I paid $28 for a 3/4 length sleeve (lightweight cotton) t-shirt with the AA logo, i.e. the rooster with the sun. STILL LOVE MIKE/FRANK/DANIELL, THE SHOW, AND THE BOOK IS GREAT (bought it from amazon before I went to the store), but the Nashville store was a huge disappointment. I'm sure since Mike has made it BIG, he's catering only to designers, antique dealers, elite clientel, etc....the average person is too small for him these days.

Nashville Pedal Tavern
We did some research and decided to reserve our spots with the Pedal Tavern for during the day on our friend's bachelorette weekend. When we arrived, we had to sign liability waivers which we expected.We were given wristbands that gave us some great deals at bars and restaurants around Nashville. Before our scheduled tour, we grabbed lunch at Tin Roof using our wristbands. Our tour guide, Luke, was awesome. Very cool guy. He made sure we always had a cold, full drink and had the perfect playlist the entire ride.We were matched with a family from Canada who had a bunch of extra riders sitting on the back who were not pedaling which definitely made the trip more strenuous. The ride wasn't necessarily "hard" ... but it sure as hell was not easy! SO happy we did it- it was a great bonding experience and lots of fun. My legs DID hurt the next day, though. Not something you could do every weekend.Would recommend to anyone looking for daytime entertainment in Nashville!

Hillwood Playcare
Hillwood Playcare is one of the best kept secrets in town. The faculty is outstanding and both of my children have always adored their teachers. The music and art program are such a bonus! We started at HWPC in 2009 and can't recommend it enough. This is not a school that only cares about money as the other reviewer stated. They have a couple of fundraisers a year (Fall Carnival and Spring Musical) and all money raised is to improve the school. If you are looking for a wonderful and loving environment then you should look at HWPC. This is also an excellent place for working mothers as their baby room starts at 6 weeks and they have early and late care. WE LOVE HWPC!!

Sure, you could go to Walmart. If you want to pay 4 times as much, AND wait 6 times as long. Also, about 50% of the time, Walmart won't even DO what you want because they're so by-the-book with everything. They won't do anything at all to your vehicle if it doesn't have all the same tires as per manufacturer specs. Places like this will get you a used tire for $40, installed, in ten minutes or less. I've been to Walmart countless times before trying this place. I'll never go to Walmart again for tires.

A Plus Tire
This is a great local shop for tires! They called me back when I called earlier in the day inquiring about tires for my car. They then went out of their way to wait "an hour" after closing for me to get through horrible traffic to get to them due to I had a tire losing psi quickly. I totally recommend them and will be telling friends to go there too. (Ps I have nice rims too, not the shiny expensive $1500 chrome ones, but not cheapos either. No damage then what "I" did to them getting tires here)

My Sister's Closet
Have had good luck consigning there in the past, However, when I called several hours in advance to notify that I would be unable to get off work in time to make my last appointment the woman responded with 'oh, that's just perfect'. She was very irritated and didn't offer me to reschedule. I wont be trying to do so. But they're doing something right I guess because it has always taken 6 - 8 weeks to get an appointment.

Old Made Good
Just walking in the store makes me smile. The trendy gift ideas and quirky decor are ultra original. If you are faint of heart or super uptight, please go to the mall instead. This place offers service with a large side of satire. Love it! By the way, one of the owners has a smiling dog. Yes, the dog smiles at you. What's not to love about a place with products and a pup that make you smile?

Hillwood Playcare
My child really enjoyed his time there. He was there for 2 1/2 year, and I never had any complaints. The staff were all very nice and loved to be with children. The kids get a sense of what it's going to be like in Kindergarten. In addition to learning they went on field trips, had class parties, had festivals for holidays, and were able to socialize. I was very glad that my son went there.

Honest people. Bought a used tire from them and after the installation my steering wheel would shake so I assumed I had to rebalance them. Went back to ask them if they could rebalance it and said it probably wasn't the problem if this happened after they installed the wheel. Instead of going ahead and taking my money they admitted to selling me a bad tire and replaced it with no charge.
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.
