They freaking saved us. We had a tire blow on the free way, and were scrambling to find someone to replace it. Pep Boys basically told us to screw off, and everywhere else was busy. They were so nice and got to work really fast. Plus he took the time to tell us what happened, and how crappy tires caused it.

I was given a price at Norfolk's Treadquarters (my place for 5 years). But a friend suggested Bo's. The garage isn't much to look at but the service was very friendly (the owner took charge) and I saved $40! I was happy camper. Dr. John Chittick, Norfolk

They will RIP YOU OFF in a heartbeat. ~$100 for two turn signal bulbs.My young adult daughter went to another shop, had a failed inspection due to brakes and a motor mount which were fixed, but she decided to go to a different shop for the re-inspection.Her friend suggested this place. She will no longer trust this friend's recommendations. The lights were not a problem on the first inspection. I wish she looked at user reviews, because if she did and saw the previous blaring horrible reviews of this company, she may have thought about going somewhere else. They couldn't find anything major with her car (it was already fixed), so they found something to be nit-picky- they told her the "amber" was flaking off the turn signal lights and would fail inspection. Mind you, they didn't fail at the other shop. She has been frustrated with trying to get her vehicle inspection done, couldn't reach me immediately to ask my opinion. She did talk to her dad- but it sounded like the whole light assembly was being replaced (he didn't know there was nothing wrong with the light assembly.) Once she spoke to me, after she told them to go ahead over the phone, I was so mad. It is obvious that it doesn't take $85 of labor to change two (non-burnt out) light bulbs on a 07 Ford. I called them up and they were very short- she verbally approved the work over the phone, and he said he is just going by what the repair guys tell him to charge for labor. I know they flat out took advantage of a young woman. I have her father calling them now ( who could have easily change the two $4 bulbs for her), and I doubt we will get a happy resolution with this- but I want to warn everyone else who ever might think of coming here to avoid them like the plague that they are.

I went in today to get a worn out tire replaced. Before I even drove over there I called and asked did they have the size tire I needed. The guy said yes, they did. So I go up there and tell them I was the lady who called about the xyz size tire. The guy was like ok so we got you, so I go sit in the lobby. Firstly, the "customer lounge" was disgusting. It looked not much different from the garage. It certainly wasn't anything I'd present to a paying customer. So I ended up waiting for no less than 30 minutes. There were two cars ahead of me so I didn't make a big fuss, but it was after that 30 minutes that an employee comes in and tells me that the tire they have was marked wrong and wouldn't fit my car.By then I'm a little annoyed. He said he had to run five minutes away to the place up the street and get the tire. I was under the impression that when he got back he would get to my car right away. Silly me. My car was still propped up on the jack 15 minutes after he got back with the tire. It was 3 other guys up there. Could no one have put my tire on by now? Then some one who was presumably the manager comes in (but was in n the biggest hurry to get back out the door). I told him how long I had been waiting and how I was told on the phone my tire was in stock. He repeats to me all over again what the employee about the man who delivers the tires on the weekend mismarking the tire blah blah blah. I could've cared less what the tire delivery man did. So then this manager hollers into the garage asking the guy if I can I get a discount. That would've sufficed if he hadn't said "Give her a discount for her inconvenience or whatever". It sounded rude. Finally I told them to friggin put the old tire back on the car so I could leave. Altogether I wasted in hour of my time. I wouldn't go back there if they were the last tire store in Norfolk.

A friend recommended I check them out. Went to have my rear driver's side tire replaced. Was quoted a reasonable price and had a new tire on in less than 20 mins. Will definitely go back again!

Worst tire store I have ever been to. No organization and after they took all 4 tires off and replaced 1, I was told that their compressor shut off and I was gonna have to wait 15 minutes or more for it to kick back on. When I asked how long it would take, they became smart-assed! I will NEVER set foot in this place again!!!

Beyond pleased! My technician, Mike, did superior work on correcting my two electrical problems. The work was far better than I had expected, and with friendly service. I shall return!

A bunch of junkies trying to rip people off to make more money to sell their drugs. This place is the biggest joke ever.
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.
