Our 2009 BMW broke down in the middle of I95 in Rocky Mount, NC on our moving trip from DC to Orlando. We thought were we in for a big headache: the nearest BMW dealership was 2hrs away, our car had a Maryland license plate, and our car was packed full of clothes. All are prime indicators for a dishonest mechanic to take advantage of. We would have paid anything to any mechanic to fix our car. The mechanic at this local (non-BMW) shop fixed our car for $50. The injectors had to be cleaned. We were well on our trip the next morning thanks to this honest shop.

Realized we needed a full set of tires prior to traveling out of town for vacation. It was obvious this company was VERY busy, but Mr. Dutton took care of our urgent need and we were able to leave the next day as scheduled. This was our first visit... we were very pleased with the fair prices and their professional and friendly service.

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.
