Horrible experience. Went in to fix a wheel bearing and they tried to upsell me rotors and pads instead which wouldn't fix the vibration I came to them for in the first place. When I went to pick up my car, they said "oh it is the bearing after all. Want us to get started?" Absolutely not. I hate when people try to take advantage of others. Luckily, I knew enough about cars to know they were trying to rip me off. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

This place is a rip off. I took my car there to get the oil changed because of the reasonable price. They showed me where the engine had been splashing oil on the part underneath the hood by the windshield. I told them that I would have my husband take care of it. After I left there this never happened again. It has the appearance that they take advantage of women. If there was a rating less than one star I would use it.

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.
