Richey's Tire Factory
Richey’s Tire Factory September 13, 2012RE: Positive ReviewIf you are looking for an honest auto repair shop, then look no further. After dealing with numerous repair shops for the last 40 years, dealing with shop foreman Duane McCollum at Richey’s Tire Factory is a breath of fresh air. I have been buying tires from Richey’s for the last 25 years and only recently started taking my cars in for repairs at their Mill Plain location. My wife and I take our cars in for 30K, 60K, 90K and even 160K services. Richey’s prices for 30k service etc. are always half of what dealers quote. The reason? Duane will only perform service that is suggested by the manufacturer whereas the dealer will sell you services that are not really vital to the longevity of your car. Now that’s honest!I recently had a new timing belt installed by Duane and his price was considerably less than quotes from other shops around town. Another thing that I like about this place is that it is well organized, professionally run and the demeanor and attitude of all of the employees is always polite and courteous. One of his lead mechanics, Matthew, is extraordinarily good at his craft. Duane is always amiable and never in a hurry yet he will usually UPOD (under promise and over deliver). Services are always completed on time and at the price quoted. I am not related to anyone at this business nor do I have a vested interest. I just believe that if someone takes good care of you, then you should take good care of him. I will continue taking my vehicles to him for repairs and will recommend this place to friends and relatives. Michael RobertsVancouver, WA

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.
