Another set of tires, another great experience at Tire Central.

New shop is awesome too, easy access (lowered car friendly) and lots of easy parking. Plus they do road force balancing now which I don't think they did before.

Very competitive pricing and the employees do very meticulous work. They take extra effort to not scratch my wheels from mounting the tires to simply removing the lug nuts. My wheels were stock by the way

Just wanna share my experience with 714tires. The alignment is awesome, they really took care of my car alignment in detail.

The dismount tires & remount them, is a whole different story. Took them about an hour or so to dismount 2 tires from my rear wheels & remount new tires on them. Some of the employees are quick on dismount & mount them, but some of them are not so much. When one of the employee mounted one of my wheels back, he wants me to push the e-brake so he can torque it while the car still on floor jack on the rear pumpkin. So I did e-brake, and I knew he won't be able to torque it, the wheels were moving obviously. I came around 2pm during weekdays to replace tires & get alignment and left at 4.30pm.

Default Shop for Flipping Tires

Anyone know any good shops to get my tires flipped around Rowland Heights/Hacienda Heights area?

I remember there used to be a really good one around City of Industry that everyone went to but I think they closed down.

Edit: It was MR Tire Solutions that closed down.

I really like Cortez wheel and tire service off Durfee in El Monte ^^

They do a lot of really large (24"+) Billet rims, and have never scratched any of my wheels including my Rotiform SJC's (3 pc modular aluminum barrels and lips), NUE's 1PC cast, my Work Schwert SC2's, and my 3pc converted Blitz 03's.
