I have been a customer of Eddie's even before he started his own business in Monroe and then expanded to Trumbull. In all those years, I have always been completely satisfied with the work done on my cars. Eddie will let you know if he discovers something while working on your car and it is always your choice to either have him do the repair, take it to a dealership, or even another mechanic. The only times I opted for the dealership was when Eddie would inform me that the defect was probably under warranty and should be checked out with a dealership first. I have never had a problem with any of Eddie's work; and he stands behind what he does. I should point out this is a AAA certified repair shop which means if the need would arise, however unlikely, AAA will mediate. I won't take my cars anywhere else.
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.
