Went there for tires replacement. They got me in and out with really old tires. To be exact more than ten years old. Costly mistake beware of this business practices.This is a part of an edmunds.com article about age tires and its consequences.For years, people have relied on a tire's tread depth to determine its condition. But the rubber compounds in a tire deteriorate with time, regardless of the condition of the tread. An old tire poses a safety hazard. Essentially what happens to a tire that's put on a vehicle and driven. Cracks in the rubber begin to develop over time. They may appear on the surface and inside the tire as well. This cracking can eventually cause the steel belts in the tread to separate from the rest of the tire. An animation on the Safety Research & Strategies Web site shows how this happens. Improper maintenance and heat accelerate the process.Here's is how to know the tire age.The sidewall of a tire is full of numbers and letters. They all mean something, but deciphering them can be a challenge. This Edmunds article about reading a tire's sidewall goes into greater detail, but for the purposes of determining the age of a tire, you'll just need to know its U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) number.Tires made after 2000 have a four-digit DOT code. The first two numbers represent the week in which the tire was made. The second two represent the year. A tire with a DOT code of 1109 was made in the 11th week of 2009. Tires with a three-digit code were made prior to 2000 and are trickier to decode. The first two digits still tell you the week, but the third digit tells you the year in the decade that it was created. The hard part is knowing what decade that was. Some tires made in the 1990s (but not all) have a triangle after the DOT code, denoting that decade. But for tires without that, a code of "328" could be from the 32nd week of 1988 -- or 1978.

Took 2 hours to plug a tire, slowest tire service ever!
I called them for tires for my Mini Cooper ... they have never called back.
Hood Tire is exactly how it sounds. Ghetto and no one knows how to fix a tire,let alone change it. Three times I took a tire there,three times it never got fixed. This time I had to put the donut on and couldn't because the guys torques them on with an impact. Fix a Flat accomplished what they couldn't,without any further damage.Avoid at all costs.
Very honest store.My tire has a cut on the side, I am worry about the safty on highway. I call the store and order a new tire. At the time I arrive the store, Anthony inspect the tire, and tell me the tire is still safe. He explain to me the tire structure and why I don't have to worry about the cut. He can just cancle the order and return the tire.Thanks
BAIT AND SWITCH ... DONT TRUST THEM
Very professional and not high pressure. They sold me the tire I was looking for at a very reasonable price. In addition, they let me know that my front brakes needed some work. Since they don't do work I appreciated this even more, since it was an added service that they didn't have to do. I have recommended them to a several friends.
Super fast service, and VALUE, Personal service you don't find in the big chain tire only stores. You will find hard working people here.
