America's tire in Fullerton jacked up my lip. They took car of fixing it though.
I think Super Autobacs should be good. They did my suspension and everything looked right.

I second El Monte, Discount Tires. I used to go there a lot when I had my Integra. I'm also about to buy some new tires, but I'm going with TireRack. What are you planning to get? I'm thinking of the 'Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position'. Tire rack has them for $836 plus shipping, which I think is not bad.

FWIW, I haven't bought tires yet, but another big JDM wheel distributor also recommended the Discount Tires in El Monte. . .

Check out CSC Tires in Alhambra if you are looking for Toyo or Falkens.

www.csctires.com for their number

i went to discount tires in el monte a couple of times.
the tire price was decent but read on a few threads that they didn't get good service. so i thought that after i went there, DT started to go down in customer service.

thanks for the replies guys...really appreciate it.
i just want to get the same exact tires as the ones that came on the car.
i would go as far as yokohama avs es100.
i had those on my previous car and loved them.

Vic at Discount Tires may come off like the Soup ****, but after talking to him a bit, and letting him know that you want to buy the tires... he will be a big softy.

They get so many BS people walking in talking about buying 19" Volks, yet when they hear the price, they are like.. "I thought they were $100 each." So ya... if you're an enthusiast, I'd get it from them... if it's just tires, any discount tires place should be good still.

Thumbs up Can anyone in L.A. beat $10 per tire?

A few years and 21,000 miles later, my Falkens are in dire need of flipping, so back I went to Atlantic Tire & Auto Service (at 1010 N Fairfax in West Hollywood, just S of Santa Monica Blvd) for a flip job.

Amazingly, Tito still charges only $10 per tire!

You can see that I waited a bit too long - I should have flipped sooner for maximum tire life, but this $40 will maybe get me 5-10K more out out of a set of $300 tires, so it's definitely still worth it.

I told Tito he might get some calls (at 323.654.0814) from this referral!
