Action Al's Tires
i would like to first make an apology to action al's tire company and it's employees. I wrote a review in November that was not favorable for the company. it was written out of anger over a certain situation that I had encountered. in all reality I made the mistake of not talking to the right person in the beginning in an effort to get the problem resolved. in reality, action al's is a very good company. I have done business with them for years, and that's why I was so upset with what took place at that time. after the situation seemed as if it was going nowhere, I had to seek advise from an attorney, which I did not want to do, but had no choice at that time. the safety of my spouse, kids and grand kids was at stake. but after talking to Lori, she straightened out the situation with no problem. granted, the situation was beyond my control and I did what I felt was necessary. the employees are always friendly and I would recommend them to anyone that needs tires or related services. their prices are always good, and I DO plan on continuing doing business with them. to the employees, I apologize for any bad feelings that came from this. you were doing what you could to help me in the situation, but it just went a little wrong and I was looking out for the safety of my loved ones. it was never about trying to get money from you. I hope you understand. I believe that you would do the same thing that I did. in all, Action Al's is as I would say "the best tire company in DC" , and as Arnold said, I'll be back!. if you need tires, you need to go there!

Action Al's Tires
I have been to Action Al's (located at 2515 Bladensburg Rd, NE) on 2 separate occasions within the last year. On both occasions, the gentleman who was removing my tires from my truck with an air wrench, wrenched off one of my lugs and messed up the threads on the other lug that the lug nut could no longer screw on. This created a safety issue for me. This problem would not have bothered me except that he didn't even take responsibility for his actions. I was told in a very nonchalant manner that "I could purchase the replacement lugs at an auto parts store and install them myself for little to nothing". My thought about his comment was "Are you kidding me? You damage my vehicle and then I should be the one to pay for the repair? Although Action Al's is the best place to go for tires and the management/counter sales assoc. are extremely friendly, I think they I think they should have at least paid for the replacement parts, seeing as how I have been going there for more than 25 years!!!!!

Just came from Action Al's. This was the best experience I've EVER had getting tires. I called the day before, my tires were there when I arrived and I was out in less than an hour! The staff was incredible: efficient, helpful, friendly. And to top it off, I got the best price, even better than one of the big box discount stores and the price includes free rotation every 5000 miles and all flat repairs. As another reviewer commented, do not be put off by the location and appearance. I would highly recommend to anyone including my 80+ mother! I will go back!

I called and spoke to Stanley about a scraper to scrape adhesive sticker off the glass and said there are several types. I came by and had many different type as he stated. I got the OEM 25500 extended scraper. It comes with 3 very sharp razors. It was amazing and long range. It was easy as 1 2 3 and everything came off. I used alcohol to clean the glue residue after and my windshield looked as brand new. I highly recommend coming here to find helpful employees and best prices in town. You have made a very happy customer. Thanks.

Absolutely perfect service. My daughter is at UMD, and curbed a tire to death. I contacted Al's and reached Dave, who took great care of her, calling me at every stage to keep me posted. For an out-of-state father, I couldn't have been happier with the service, great professionalism, and very competitive price.

Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
