Liberty Tire Recycling in San Antonio, Texas with Reviews -

Billy Bob's Tire
Dear Brandon:I'm sorry that Billy Bobs has placed you in this position of reviewing my complaint, especially since you say that you have no knowledge of mechanical matters, and I don't believe that you had anything to do with the repairs on my motorhome, or the subsequent billing. 1. You are mistaken in saying that I was present for most of the repairs: I visited 4 times on the first day, 3 times on the second day, and once on the third day, at an average of 30 mins. each time. 2. On my 3nd visit, 2nd day, I sat in the office, facing the manager and asked him what my costs were adding up to. He would not answer me, so at that point I became worried. 2. On the third day, when presented with my bill I was shocked and disappointed, because I genuinely like the staff at Billy Bobs. I held my emotions inside, as I have learned that it is better to investigate and think before reacting. Also, at that time I had no idea that the $643.26 repair to my tail and dash ights would fail, the moment I turned them on. 3. The next day I sent an email to Mr. Yow regarding the failure of this expensive repair, providing an opportunity for a resolution. Sadly, once again, I received no response.

I went by unanouced and was immediately acknowledged by one of the guys who then waited for me to approach and asked what he could do for me , I explained that I was looking for a deal on a used tire as my financial situation was vary tight he asked what size I needed, in this case ap215/60 R16 he the said let me see and went to check they had 3 available they ranged from pretty good to "I don't think so. I asked how much he said there bottom was $30.00 bucks Whick I could swing then pointing to what was obviously the best of the bunch asked including that one he said yes that one could be had for the bottom price of $30.. I was delighted having been to 4 other tire shop and being quoted prices ranging from $50-$40 for far more inferior tires. Neadless to say I bought the tire and was on my way in less than 30min. That was 6 months ago now and have had zero issues with the tire thankfully. that $30 bucks included mounting and balancing plus without my asking checked and aired the other tires.

I usually don't write reviews of places, but Tiger Sanitation has really frustrated me. We just moved to our new home and paid in advance for scheduled service for 7/1/13 . The first day they skipped right over our trash bins. I called and left a message since it appears no one picks up the phone. Someone did come by later and pick it up, though I never received a call back.Now today 7/8/13 They took up my trash bin and recycle bin. I called and after many attempts I was able to get ahold of someone. The lady informed me she didn't know why the bins were picked up but said they will drop them back off in a not so enthusiastic manner. I seriously doubt I will see those bins before next trash day. Being new to San Antonio I wasn’t aware I had other options but if my trash bin and trash isn’t picked up by next week, I’m calling my credit card and disputing the charge.

I'm often dissatisfied with Tiger. Yes, they are the lower priced of the two options we have, but they only come once per week, and they seem to just arbitrarily decide to not pickup trash or recyclables from time to time. This causes a tremendous inconvenience to the customers who then have to deal with two or three weeks of accumulated trash. Not good when you live in an area with critters roaming about scourging for food.Aditionally, their customer service department rarely answers incoming phone calls during business hours, and offers no after hours support. If you're fortunate enough to get through during the business day, they don't seem interested in correcting the mistake, they simply document the incident and then appear to ignore it.I've tried to be completely fair in my review. This is clearly a situation where you get what you pay for.

I have had Tiger service for about 10 years altogether and up until recently have been very happy. I went to them to get away from another service that was poor service. Now it seems that when I call customer service at Tiger with a problem they just flat don't care and they are rude and don't want to take responsibility and correct their poor service. I always bag my trash and some some reason still find trash around in the street or on my property. My can is thrown or sat in middle of the street in the way of traffic. I hate the I don't care its not our problem rude attitude of everyone I talk to at Tiger. My bill is due in May and I am looking at other services...people who care and aren't rude and where my business is valued and I am too...used to be a great trash service, but now I guess they are just to big for their britches.

I will be a tiger customer for as long as I live in an area they service. I've never had a missed pickup, never had issues with my bill, never seen a grumpy face. What set them apart to me was the amazing way they care about their communities and customers. My son is obsessed with garbage trucks and wanted a garbage themed party. Tiger sent a special truck to our house just for him, complete with a tour and a ride. It made his day and ours. What a great comany with a big heart.

I've never had issues with this company, but their prices have increased significantly with each of the last 3 periods. I'm going to have to get a new company simply because their prices are so outrageous now. Their service has always been good in our neighborhood though, their workers respectful, and their office staff polite when I call (although they *are* hard to get on the phone no matter what time of day). I'm just disappointed over the price hikes.

I don't know nothing about cars. I took my vehicle in to get fixed not knowing what it could. The shop manager Edgar and his crew explained everything where I could understand. Explained how it happened and how to prevent other problems, showed me prices so I knew I wasn't getting screwed over with my lack of knowledge. 5 stars isn't enough for these guys. Il never take my vehicle anywhere else.

Discount Tire
When tires go bad from normal wear is one thing, but when not wear and tear can you fix the problem? On a road trip stopped in because the "clamber" was off on my son-in-laws G35. "I got two tires but you got to go to Midas to get the front end aligned"? I guess this is why they call themselves "Discount Tires" because all they do is sell tires?

I couldn't be any happier with these guys. The manager up front took good care of me and my wife. They are family oriented an will help you out the best they can. Got my engine rebuild on my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado best price in town. They do free diagnostic checks. I got referred by a friend an I will let more people knoe about them. I am very pleased!
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.
