Yeah I bought 2 sets of wheels and tires from him before. The shop is a dump in El Monte but Vic's always nice to me and his prices are decent. He gets me in and out pretty quickly too.

i got a pretty good deal on my tires at:

tire central
5132 walnut grove ave
san gabriel, ca 91776
626-227-0150

look for donald and ask him what current deals he has. i got a good price on the tires but i dunno if i would have em mount em. i was cringing when i saw them try to stretch the tire on. they were having lotsa trouble but i didn't see any marks or gouges on the lip or face so...?

He's a good guy if you buy stuff like wheels, but is inconsistent in the way he treats you at least from my experience. I purchased the lifetime alignment and the other guys have that "whatevers" attitude when I use it.

Anyways, alot of good places recommended above. I believe Tire Central only takes cash so just be prepared before you go. You can also look up user "discounttiredirect" on ebay for some pretty good tire deals with free shipping. They also have their regular website by the same name.

went to discount tires in el monte about a 8 months ago and wasn't too happy. bought all 4 tires there when i was putting new rim on and the lug nuts wouldn't fit and they charged me 55.00 for the nuts. that was ridiculous but had not choice at the time....

didnt the shop, where u bought the wheels, tell you the oem lugs are too large and wont fit? $55, i'm guessing they sold you muteki's?

at least you got your wheels on.

Bought them off of ebay, seller didn't advise me. Don't know what muteki's are but the ones I got were nothing special. Got my tires on but felt raped with the nuts.

But I personally wouldn't go back. paid 800.00 for my tires and I think the nuts could have been lower....Just my opinion...
