Sam's Front End Alignment
I read the reviews before I called for an appointment today. I was skeptical, but decided to give it a try, since their price is 60% less than auto shops charge for axle replacement in west end. I watched very closely the mechanic (Fredi) who worked on my car. He did very good job and even fixed some wires previously cut from another mechanic. Their price is great and the mechanic I dealt with was very understanding and knowledgeable.I will go there again next time i need a repair.

Vonderlehr Tire Company
Another tire place stripped my locking lug nuts and Vonderlehr was able to remove the nuts. I can't remember if they charged me any extra to deal with that. If they did, it was a pittance. been back twice and everything has been perfect and competitively priced. Great guys!

The most honest mechanics in town. I've been a customer there for over 10 years now and they've always treated me right and stood behind their work.
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.
