Superior Auto & Tire
DO NOT GO THIS PLACE FOR INSPECTION. Went to superior tire and auto to get my (well functioning) 2009 Nissan Versa inspected. After waiting 2 and a half hours for inspection to be completed the mechanic came up to the front desk and said "well you have many issues with the car." They continued to tell me the tires were bad, windshield wipers where bad, lights were too cloudy, licence frame light was out AND the subframe of the car was dented and needed to be replaced. ALSO when I returned to my car I noticed they had spray painted one if my tires yellow, I thought that was rude to do that to my car. This inspection came as such a shock to me because my car has no damages, Is well maintained and rides smoothly with no odd noises. I was so upset and felt hopeless, in order to fix just the subframe alone would be timely and more than 500 dollars. I decided to get a second opinion. I took my versa to get inspected elsewhere and they told me there is nothing wrong with my subframe, my tire and head lights where fine... all that was needed was a new license plate light and a new windshield wiper (only because the old wiper had been barely hanging on due too manipulation to it... which couldn't of happened from over time driving it had to be done from intentional manipulation of wiper). I was relieved to be right about the other shop scamming me. What could of been a 500 plus dollar expense to "fix" my fuctionial car was just 30 dollars at another shop. Thankfully the other shop I took it to was able to over ride the inspection due to the other place being faulty but in most cases you would have to re-inspect the car at the original shop that failed you so long story short DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PLACE. I'm not the type to leave a bad review but this was necessary in order to possibly help prevent others enduring the stress I went through.

Duke's Tire Pros
The ONLY reason I am graciously giving them a single star is because I am required to. I called up there on Friday to price out tires on my car. Seeing as they would able to everything in one stop, mount in stock tires, balance and align I figured how could I go wrong? I should have stuck with my gut and went to Wal-Mart to have the work done.. I would have gotten better service. I spoke with Tracy first 3 times and then a younger woman who entered my work order setting me up for first thing Monday morning as soon as they opened. I gave them contact information and repeatedly told them what type of car I was having dropped off, what tires I needed, where the tires were to go, what time my car would be dropped off, that my keys would be located in their drop box, who would pick up my car at what time and that they would be paying with my debit card. I don't think you can possibly confuse this.. well, I guess I assumed as things were written down and I had spoke with them 4 times within 30 minutes that they would remember Monday morning. Oh boy.. My car was dropped off at 7:22am Monday morning. Keys placed in the drop box. A hand written work order was placed on the drivers seat because I felt the younger woman was having complications understanding what needes to be done. At 3:47 I get a phone call from the person I sent to pick up my car.. It had not moved. Immediately I told them to put me on the phone with Tracy, which I "so kindly" reminded I had spoken to her 4 times on Friday so they knew what was to be done.. But still my car sat. Apparently telling them "I will be dropping my car off around 7:30 am and placing the keys in your drop box" translates to "just let my car sit there all day with a work order but don't bother to tend to it." The key was behind an envelope Tracy said and they didnt see it...

Duke's Tire Pros
I took my 2015 Ram truck in to Duke’s Tire Pros for an alignment. They have always been the best when dealing with anything that has to do with tires. I trusted them as my truck has a large lift with oversize tires. The tires only had 3,000 miles on them, so they were nearly brand new. When I got my truck back I noticed there were large chunks missing from the front passenger side tire. The technician had severely damaged the tire and had not said anything to me about it. I contacted the store attempting to get in touch with a manager or the owner. I was given the run around and finally spoke to Tracey 7 days later. I brought the truck back to the shop for her to look at the truck. Tracey said she would look into what she could do and would contact me the next day. She said she wanted to make the customer happy. Well, there was no contact from Tracey the next day, and when I finally heard back from her she said that she decided not to help in any way! The frustrating part of this whole ordeal is all of the time that I wasted. If she wasn’t going to help me then she should have just said so up front. I feel as if she just strung it along hoping that the problem would go away. Well, I own and run a small business in Wilmington and this is the exact opposite of how you should treat your customers. If there is an issue with a customer, address it immediately and attempt to rectify the mistake. That is how business should be run in my opinion. Apparently Duke’s Tire Pros does not agree. I am leaving this review so that others can how this business is run and no one else is treated in this manner. I am leaving one star, and I would leave less if I could. Fair warning to everyone out there: Do not have work done at Duke’s Tire Pros!

S Grady & Sons Used Tires
My girlfriend took my car there. She paid $200 in advance for new tires that they ordered for her. She was given a receipt stamped S. Grady & Sons at 1103 N 3rd St. But the name of the business has been changed to Southern something (I don't really remember the new name) and the address is 1103 S. 3rd St. There is nothing at 1103 N. 3rd St. Based on the address on the receipt, they said that they weren't the people who took her money. They also said that the tires identified in the receipt don't even exist. These people are thieves.

Robles Used Tire Svc
The worst experience I have ever had with a used tire place. I paid to have all 4 tires replaced and they destroyed all my rims and after he put on the tires he tried charging me 10 more dollars than he originally quoted me. The owner has no empathy aswell because after driving for 30 mins one of the tires blew and it left my family and I on the side of the road. The tire was apparently shaved on the sides and an unfit tire to sell. When I asked them to exchange the tire for a more suitable tire he refused and I spent 20 mins arguing with the owner and an 18 year kid who said he was a mechanic and knows that that tire is fine. Even though the sides were shaved off and my rims had shards of metal ripped off my rim from the installation. When they finally said yes to replace my tire the owner pulled out a tire that was obviously in worse condition because it had uneven wear. I asked him for a tire that was safer and not overly warn he said that was his only one. He had a stack of them...

Hughes Brothers Inc.
Bought a new set of tires here and got the best price in town. Same day service and no attempt to upscale me on another product or to convince me I needed extra work done. Seemed like an honest old fashioned garage.

I am pleased every time I bring my car to this shop, prompt honest service.
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.
