The Tire Choice & Total Car Care
I'd like to say I was very pleased with very friendly welcome. I came in and received a $19.99 oil change with tire rotation. The technician Tyler I believe his name was showed me personally a couple issues. From there Kevin worked with me on getting my repairs done quickly and at the best price. I highly recommend these guys at The Tire Choice on Wedgewood Ln. Here at the villages! Thank you and keep up the good work.

I brought my car in. I had never been there before. I dealt with Kevin. He personally came out with me to check my car with all the noises it was making. I thought I would have to wait and they got me right in. They really took the time to make sure my car was in top condition especially with a new infant.Kevin was so helpful and made it the most affordable and best experience I could have. I now have a new mechanic thanks to Kevin and his team.

The staff was very helpful and courteous. I was traveling and my brakes started to make a grinding noise. They found the right side had no brake pad left. They were able to get me back on the road in under 2 hrs, and the price seemed very competitive. The service manager Otto was very professional and explained everything so I could understand the repairs.

Purchased tires for truck. They bounced all over road. They said nothing wrong with tires. That wheels were bent. Replaced wheels Problem continued. After several attempts to correct problem went to Firestone Ocala to have tires road forced balanced. Three of four tires did not meet minimum federal standards and could not be balanced. Only after producing theses results and test results from Ford did they agree to replace the tires

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.
