These guys are very fast and reliable. I always get same day service, and I know it'll be done right. Good prices, 2 new front tires @ $86 each, installed. : )
not cheap – 5/10/12 stopped to change winter tires , was informed that the two new tires to be mounted since not purchased there would cost $25.00 each to be mounted, thats high , no reason to go there if not price! i will use tire rack and have tires drop shipped to tire place that has competitve prices
This is the place to go for all types of tires – I love this place. It's cheap. Not a fancy place, just your normal garage with working class men who are all dirty. I always get my tires from them and never had any trouble. They are fast...I parked right on the side of the shop and was dealt with very quickly each time I went there. Whether you need new tires, or take off's, (which are tires that where on a car that was totaled)...they have it all...depending on your needs, this is the place to go. My husband got four new tires there for a 2008 Ford F-150. The truck passed inspection and the dealership he takes it to said the tires were top notch. Plus, they didn't cost a fortune...when shopping around for new tires on a truck, wow...very expensive...We always go to Dukes.
Recommend someplace different – I wouldn't even give this place 1 star! I was having major problems with my Town and Country pulling and shaking VERY badly. While traveling down Corrigan Drive (luckily 25 MPH) to my sons school the tread of my drivers side front tire PEALED right off!!!! In the meantime my father was almost to my location so I waited for him and when my father (mechanic) came he noticed the tires were in very POOR condition. So we took them to get looked at and was told that I was very very very lucky something more serious didnt happen and that the tires were 'Re-Tread' and 9 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called and spoke with the owner and his exact words were "What do you want us to do?? You can't just get free tires! Bring the car down and we can see what we can do, but I can tell you now they wont be free." Terrible, Terrible place.. no heart to put me and my 2 children in this UNSAFE vehicle, def. should not be in business!!!! Shame on you!!!!!!!!
Go to Duke's if you want your wheels scratched – I never take the time to write reviews on places because I usually have better things to do, but I'll make an exception for Duke's.
I specifically asked the guy before they started if they would be able to mount 2 tires without scratching my nearly pristine wheels and they said, "Yes, the machine doesn't touch the rim." Obviously they were lying or took zero care when mounting the tires because there were multiple deep scratches around the edge of the rim once the tires were installed. Whenever I pointed it out to them, they denied that they put the scratches there, even though it was obvious the scratches were fresh.
Call me a sucker, but I paid the $60 bill in full (cash), which I don't consider cheap, considering that all they did was mount 2 tires and dispose of 2 tires. I should have refused to pay anything given that they did a hell of a lot more than $60 in damage.
I went to Duke's because it's 2 blocks from my house and I like to support local, small businesses, but I will absolutely, positively never go back there or recommend anyone go there. If you don't mind getting your wheels scratched when getting new tires, by all means, go to Duke's.
Not Qualified – I don't know much about tires, so when I go to a tire service center I expect expert advice. When I blew out my tire, Dukes replaced it quickly and for a reasonable price. A month later when I went to get my PA inspection, I couldn't pass with the incorrect tire that they placed. I was extremely frustrated to have to buy another tire in order to pass inspection. My advice would be to save your money and go to a more knowledgeable tire center.
New or Possibly Used Tires: Fast, Cheap – Called Duke's at the suggestion of a friend last night at about 4:15pm to ask about replacing a flat tire on my car. They unfortunately didn't have a used tire in the size i needed, but did have a new one for $60 total, including labor, balancing and mounting. I got there at 8:30 this morning as soon as they opened and was done and on my way in about 15 minutes. They take credit card. The place looks like a typical local garage, but if you're looking for good service, quick, at a fair price and not the Taj Mahal, then get your next car tire at duke's.
they gave me a "goodride" brand tire. not sure what other brands they stock.
Things to know before calling:
1. tire size: usually something like P175/70 R14
2. if you want a specific type of tire like a snow tire
(I didn't specify and got a normal looking all-season tire)
3. a few times when you will be available to stop by and how long you are willing to wait.
4. Whether you want a used or a new tire (they may only have one or the other, but they had what i
needed in this case, new)
If you are not replacing all 4 tires, then think about how the new one will work/match with your current set. Might want to replace them in pairs if your current ones are a bit worn.
