Terrible Service, Horrible Customer Care – I went here to get a tire replaced and it was a horrible experience. Joe was there but never lifted a finger to help, claiming he was now 'retired.' So he sat at his desk while the fat guy named Jeff took care of me. He kept trying to sell me a tire I didn't want and while he was doing that, he was gnawing on a hoagie. Not a great impression. Then his wife came in and they embraced in a sumo hug and just tuned me out for ten minutes while they chatted about this and that. I left and went to pep boys. Don't go to Joes. It's bad.
Can't beat it! – I have been going here for tires & batteries for 10 years now and I have never had a problem. Being a woman I am usually talked to at car places as if I have no idea what is going on. I have never felt that here. They are straight forward and honest. They have never sold me anything that I don't need. The work has always been done professionally and everyone is friendly. The prices are great. I have a truck and a car and the prices have been way better than any other place I have called, I call around a lot!! The tires have gotten the full mileage wear out of them without any problems, and I buy the lowest priced tire that they can offer me. I highly recommend them.
DEDICATED SERVICE – JOE'S BATTERY & TIRE IS A DEPENDABLE PLACE TO GO WHEN YOU NEED EXPERT SERVICE AND CARE. IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY CAR I HAVE IS A MAGNET FOR NAILS AND SCREWS. THEY ARE VERY HONEST AND WON'T SELL YOU SOMETHING YOU DON'T NEED. BUT IF YOU DO NEED TIRES, THEY HAVE VERY REASONABLE PRICES. JUST LIKE EVERY GOOD THING, YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT A LITTLE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO POPULAR, BUT THEIR WAITING ROOM IS COMFORTABLE AND CLEAN. I WENT IN TODAY AT A LITTLE AFTER 9 AM AND WAS OUT IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES. I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO READ MY PAPER!
Tires from Joe's – Have used Joes more than 5-6 times. Get there early. Poeple line up -- seen the office with 8 -10 people waiting.Prices and service has always been top notch. You walk in and say you want tires for your car and they go out and get the right size and give you multible options(from name brands to cheaper no name). Than they call the warehouse to get them delivered. My son needed tires for his FordF250 -larger than most - payed 1/3 less than other places he priced.
Great People to deal with! – My wife and I have been buying tires here for years. Always a great experience as well as value for the dollar. Matter of fact getting new shoes for my truck there this Tuesday!
Great "English" Speaking Garage – What a refreshing experience to goto a tire garage where the employees speak to you in ENGLISH. Answered all my questions and installed the tires beautifully.
Rip off – Sold me a used tire that he had plugged that shouldn;t have been could have bloen out on the highway
joe's battery and tire – i have been going to Joe's for 2 years since my mechanic sent me there. you can get mismatched tires at great prices. He also sells used tires that have many years left in them. doesn't try to sell you something you don't need.
Owner is a bad man – I had an experience similar to another reviewer's I called ahead and was told they take customers up until 4:30pm, but when I showed up at 4:10 I was told they had made their last run to their warehouse, and that I had to come back in the morning.
I asked if I could pay for the tires then so they could just get them on the first tire run of the day, hoping to avoid some of the waiting, but Joe said, "We don't take appointments." I tried to explain how what I was proposing was entirely unlike an appointment, but he acted like I was stupid and kept repeating "We don't take appointments" as if it saying it again might cause it to have some bearing on the issue at hand. If he had shown any sign of understanding what I was saying, I would have cheerfully accepted his ruling, but he seemed incapable of comprehending such a complex idea.
I returned the next day anyway, figuring that his prices were good enough that it was worth the hassle. When I got there, however, I heard him make several disparaging remarks about Latinos or, as he called them, "Porta Rickins". I left immediately, and I won't go back. Cheap tires are not worth a piece of my soul.
