Allen Tire
My family has been Allen Tire Inc customers for 7+ years. We have always visited the same location but recently we have been going to the Forest Hill Ave. location. This past week I needed 4 new tires as well as an oil change for my car - once again, Allen Tire Inc. delivered the same great service we have grown to expect from them. Billy Allen helped advise me on which tires were best for my car and my daily driving, ordered them, called to set up my appointment, and ensured that I was satisfied with the new tires. While waiting for the service to be completed, the shop has wireless which was very nice for my little one to play on the iPad. The gentlemen at the front desk were polite, helpful, and nice to talk to while we waited! Thanks Billy and the Allen family for your continued commitment to your customers.

Richmond European
I have been taking my Audi to Aram (owner) at Richmond European for over 5 years, and I have NEVER had such a great experience with auto repair and service as I have had at Richmond European. Aram is very honest and trustworthy, does great work, and has very fair pricing. My favorite part about taking my car to Aram is that when I come to pick up the car, he always takes the time to show me exactly what is wrong with the parts he needed to switch out.

Decatur's Garage
My son has used Decatur's Garage for years and has received commendable, affordable service. Based on his recommendation, I took my BMWs to them for every need ranging from inspection to engine service. I have always been impressed with their service, their friendly persona, their expertise and their cost. I recommend them to my friends. It's difficult to find a firm so reliable, honest, reputable and customer-oriented.

Amazing!!! The level of customer service that I received getting my vehicle serviced was above and beyond. Ike is the person that i spoke with and he was honest and fair with pricing. I went for an inspection, oil change, and to get new tires. This shop had everything I needed and got me out in a good time. Would highly recommend!

Decatur's Garage
I went there today for an inspection after reading all the positive reviews. Decatur's is in a nice neighborhood with some things to do nearby while you wait. The staff was professional and very helpful with a few questions I had about registration and inspection.I would go again if the need arises.

My ujoint was locking up so I found this place to replace it. I had to wait while Johnny took care of other people getting their driveshafts picked up and one guy was dropping off. A lot of drive shafts from other service shops are here to be worked on. glad i found them.

Tips & Advices
Ceramic brake pads are made from dense, durable ceramic. They are favored for their relative silence while driving compared to metal or organic brake pads. They also have little wear and tear on the overall brake system and are very reliable. However, they are more expensive than metal or organic brake pads. Additionally, their performance deteriorates in extreme driving conditions.
Brake rotors typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.
Brake shoes are used in drum brakes--rather than disc brakes--which is the original braking system designed for vehicles. Just as brake pads are the friction component of disc brakes, brake shoes are the friction component of drum brakes. When the brakes are applied, a wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoe against the brake drums, which spin while the vehicle is in motion, and causes the vehicle to stop.
A squeaking or squealing sound when applying newly replaced brakes is normal. It comes from the rotor vibrating against the new brake pads. It should quiet down after about 250 miles, and should be more or less silent by 750 miles, when the brake system has had some time to synchronize itself.
This depends on the car, the brake system, and the car owner's driving habits. Typically, a car's brakes should be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but some car's brakes may last anywhere from 25,000 to 70,000 miles. Car owners shouldn't wait for a magic number to replace their brakes. They should check them regularly, and pay close attention if they hear any weird noises or if the car feels shaky while braking. Brakes are a critical safety component of a car, so it's important to stay on top of brake maintenance.
