AAA had put the spare on, and I went over to Atlantic Tire to see if they could fix my tire. I have been their customer since 2013, for tires and tire service. I knew it was time for new tires all around, but just starting a new sales (commission only) job, no income yet, it was out of the question. Joey showed me the damaged tire, torn in the wall, and slick. No hope for it. He found a correct-size tire and they put it on for $90. We discussed the fact my other 3 will never pass inspection which was due before 11/30/16. I asked for a quote on new tires, so I would know what to expect when I got the money. Joey suggested I may want to consider a less expensive tire that he thought I would get more miles on, AND I might find more comfortable. I agreed. Without another word, he prepared TWO estimates: one for current brand at $1160. and an estimate for Continental at $940. I have 4WD. He made sure to include all line items such as old tire disposal, including tax, understanding my circumstance. I started making shorter trips and making more phone calls, trying to keep in touch with prospects although face-to-face gets better outcome. Two weeks later, an item that I had had listed on E-Bay, for two years, was bought by someone who did't even try to get it for less, and she even paid the shipping cost! A prayer answered, for truly I had no control of that. Knowing I would have enough to pay for those new tires in a few days, I called Joey, he ordered the Continental brand, and the tires were installed on 11/8/2016. But it doesn't end there. I saw a promotional ad for Continental that they would give you a $70 gift card for buying a set of 4 during the month of November. I got that!THANK YOU, Joey. THANK YOU, Ty . You are business people who have compassion. A combination that will reward you with my business for life.

LOL at the online reviews! I was just looking up their number and was surprised to see negative reviews about this particular shop. I'm about to buy my 3rd consecutive set of tires from them as the prices are reasonable and when I need a rotate and balance I can usually get it same day and the equipment is state of the art. Of course, I'm not your average customer... I have a long commute and my tires/brakes/etc. absolutely have to be right on the money. They have not let me down after many, many visits. Not too many shops get my loyalty but they have earned it.But by all means, if you trust negative online reviews then please don't go here. It makes it easier for me to get an appointment as they can be quite busy some days!! Kind of like when my favorite restaurant is packed every day... I may need to go online and write a bad review about them to keep it from being so crowded!

I started going to them about 5 years ago for basic stuff. They have great prices and they earned my trust. Another shop told me my daughters car needed a lot of very expensive work done. I got a few other estimates and Blue Flame was the best and they had a good deal on a set of tires for her car as well. When we showed up to get the car, the tires were on it but the rest of the work was not done. The mechanic said that everything was fine and showed the manager to verify. They saved us a lot of money which they didn't have to do. They could have done the work and I wouldn't have questioned it. Since, we have taken our cars back for other stuff. They are always nice, polite, and treat us fairly. I highly recommend them

This place is awesome!!! John and co. are great. They are HONEST as the day is long and will tell you if you need something done or not. They also will tell you if something is coming up. Like you only have another 7,000 miles or so on your brakes. They came highly recommended from a local friend and I can see why. They are your friendly neighborhood mechanic, they don't sell cars or have a gas station, all they do is fix cars...They have been very dependable since I have been going to them for the past 5 years...

Scheduled an appointment at 12pm, didn't even get my car in till 1245. Service took way to long for what needed to be done and ended up spending 3 hours in there for a wheel alignment that could have taken 1hr max. Very disappointed do not go here

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.
