Geralds Tires & Brakes
First of all I would like to comment to Harpo about his post on Geralds discriminating against bikers. Don't you realize they would not plug it because you don't plug bike tires...you replace them! So, they just may have saved your life. You should be thankful of the knowledge they have instead of complaining. I find everyone at Geralds helpful, knowledgeable and most of all honest! They will never try to sell you something you don't need. That's hard to come by now-a-days. Yes, you may have to wait, but that's just because they are so busy because people trust them.

I had a slow leak in a tire. Dropped it off, they dismounted the tire, cleaned the rim, put in a new valve stem, really a need the tire. All for free, how can you ask for better service.

Been going here for years! One of the only garages that just fixes what you need done, doesnt try to tell you random other things that "need fixing." Customer service is great.
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.
