That maybe true but they repaired my golf cart tire with a nail in it for no cost.

I get oil changes there for my car; never had any problem with this. Also bought set of tires couple of years at competitive price.

Why would you not go to the dealership that carries your car? Going to a tire shop to get mechanical work done is like going to a Chinese restaurant and getting tacos. The price at a dealership is only slightly higher than independents and you have much more leverage to ensure something gets done and done correctly. Just my opinion and questions.

Default You are correct!

Tire Choice quoted $1,220 to replace my tires. Got the exactly same tires at Barnett Tire (great folks) in Leesburg for $900.

Wildwood Tire on 44 just east of 301... No oversell, fast and courteous service. Went in for a new battery and have my check engine light looked at. Door was left ajar over night and ran down the 4 year old battery. Dealer looked up my records and said battery should be replaced for about $180 + $150 to investigate check engine light. At Wildwood Tire I was told the battery was good and the check engine light was reset. This was about a year ago and no problem with the battery. All for no charge, so I handed him $40 and became a future customer. I have been back since with an unrelated problem and was very satisfied.

We agree! We TRIED to get our golf cart repaired...after taking it in 3X’s and $900, they tell us they can’t fix it...nice. Mostly all they did was put new battery cables in...didn’t work. Since we used Discover, we filled a claim immediately. Four months later, it was dismissed; we paid $100 for cables. We thought it was over...it was not. Came down 10 months later, and got a second notice from debt collector...after three calls to corporate, the claim was dismissed again for good.

Don’t do business w them...forever!

We found tire roundup on 441 to be the most reasonable place. We got 4 new tires for our subaru for $300 less than Tire Choice quoted us. Its a family run operation and they do not have a fancy waiting room. But they are wonderful
