Lacking in customer service skills. When I called to report an issue after getting my alignment "denial" seemed to be the defense to leaving a critical bolt loose or removed causing my rear wheels to drift. The tow link was laying against my rear wheel which was the only thing preventing my wheel from going sideways. It was a brand new part, installed 2 days prior to alignment. They tried to blame my mechanic - when there was NO ISSUE with the rear of the vehicle Prior to taking it to them. I am offended by the arrogance I heard in his voice.

These guys took good care of me. I had a lift installed that I wasn't pleased with. The lift was designed wrong and I'm very picky. Not big o's fault. They worked to get another lift I picked out from a brand they don't typically carry and install it and refund my money from the first lift no questions asked. Very friendly staff and helpful. I would do business with them again. I was afraid the refund process for the first lift would be painful. They made it easy. 90 return policy held up and the new lift looks 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.
