Description of service

Price includes the cost of four tires, mounting/installation, disposal of old tires and wheel alignment. The actual wheel alignment was "free" with the purchase of the four tires. Though, a wheel alignment by itself was $80.


Review of Service

The actual service of the tire installation was good although it took about 3 hours. The alignment was okay as well--but it was not perfect. The salesman was a little overbearing but really in the end helped me get the tire that I needed and as well get a sale price. Would recommend going to mom and pop type places. I have found they are more concerned with providing individual, quality service. They also don't have the pressure of pushing a product that the "company" wants them to push like chain tire places.


Tips

Research tires before you go to buy them. Know what kind of tires your vehicle can support as well as what kind of tires you need for the type of driving you do. Also, know what the different ratings mean for tires. A tire may seem cheap or expensive but it all depends on what rating the tire is. Don't be pressured into buying a tire you don't need because the salesman says it is so much better. If you need a V rated tire and nothing else, don't let them sell you something more expensive that you don't need.
