Got a flat driving around Berkeley. Needed a fix or replacement tire. Got a brand new tire I guess was fine and worked. But not a good deal. Nice folks.… read more Quick and good if you in a pinch around CollegeTown.
Really good service. Tito advised me on my options for tires in a very trustworthy manner, without making any hard sells. Also, they said they'll provide free tire rotation after… read more 6 months.
They were reasonably priced, very pleasant and honest. They could have tricked me into buying a new tire when all it really needed was a patch. When I do need… read more new tires, I will definitely go to this place. Their shop is immaculately clean, and they have a nice waiting area.
Had a flat tire, and decided it was time for new shoes for my Tesla. It was evening hours, so I bought tires online on Joe's website for next day… read more delivery, and called next morning for installation appointment. They took me in the same day.
Entire experience was professional, courteous and flawless. Had all 4 tires changed and car realigned (which is not straightforward with Tesla) in under 2 hours. They even changed the valve stems and caps for free.
Would (and likely: will) go there again.
Last night I got a flat tire at 4:45 and my regular tire shop couldn't help me so I called Joe's and I took my car down there immediately. I… read more thought I would have to wait til the next day but they stayed a little late and fixed it with a smile. They are my new favorite tire shop in Berkeley! Thanks Joe's for going to extra mile. Having my car back for the weekend makes a huge difference!
So I realized my car had a very flat tire today and called around to see if I could get a same-day fix. Other places said no or were hard… read more to get a hold of but when I called Joe's, they said they could do it and they did! I was so relieved to be able to get it taken care of and Tito and his guys did an amazing job.
Honestly, going to a garage or a place that works on cars as a woman who doesn't know very much about cars is intimidating. This obviously wasn't something I could have put off for later (I would have if I could have ) so in we went. Tito was upfront, honest, and knowledgeable and which made me feel comfortable about the whole process and service. We ended up having to replace two of my tires so Tito explained AND showed me why (which was helpful so I didn't feel like I was getting taken advantage of). AND these new tires even come with a warranty that my previous tires didn't have!
I'd recommend this tire shop to anyone in the area who needs a tire rotation, realignment, or replacement. I'm glad I came here and won't be anxious at all about bringing my car back for my next tire rotation. These guys are great and worth every cent.
Thank you, Tito!
The guy I initially spoke to over the phone in the morning was really nice and patient with all of my questions while I was trying to figure out the… read more best solution for my circumstance (hence 2 stars instead of 1). I tried to give a call back later in the day to make sure there's still availability for the tire I needed, however both times the phone was answered and got hung up right away.
I'm hesitant on ever coming back as a customer, as I understand business can fluctuate a lot throughout the day and I wouldn't mind being on hold until the customers in store were served, but a customer over the phone should be given the same respect and attention.
I brought my car in with a slow leak in one of tires due to a small screw in the center of the tread. My car had also recently developed… read more a slight wobble in the front wheels at highway speeds, that I suspected was due to a slight imbalance in the front wheels.
At the shop the man at the counter told me that I probably needed new front tires, before he even looked at the car. When he did look at the car he said that they could do nothing, as the tread was too badly worn.
I measured my tread depth with my tread gauge and found about 50% tread remaining on the fronts and 38% on the rear. The tire industry guidelines recommend not fixing a puncture if there is less than 20% tread left. Additionally, all my tread had worn evenly across the faces of the tires.
I then went to Don's Tire in Berkeley and they had no problem in fixing the puncture and rebalancing my front wheels, with the result that my car is running smoothly at all speeds.
My next set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for the car will not be bought from this shop.
