Sotelo's Auto Repair
These guys are great and HONEST!! I took my truck to the dealer and they said I needed everything changed on my brakes including the rotors and was going to cost $1200!! I took my truck to Sotelo's and spoke to Tito. After a second opinion, he showed me the pads and said they could still go but recommended the change and said the rear rotors were fine while showing me the items. I bought the brake pads and front rotors prior to going to Sotelo's and he installed them in one day for less than 1/4 of the price that the dealer quoted me. I'll take my business to Sotelo's from now on!

J's Tires & Wheels
Honest man who wants to sell tires. We live outside of Houston and had a bad tire. We didn't want to drive 6 hours on without a spare. We tried to find a tire dealer who would help us. Walmart wouldn't give us the time of day and Surber wanted to charge a ridiculous amount for 4 tires for an Armada. Joey at J tires found 4 tires that were reasonable and even called me back to let me know he could get me 4 tires delivered the next morning. I would definitely recommend this business if you are in the area.
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.
