Reader Mail: Best Tire Shop?
With so many drivers leasing their cars these days, it seems that the need to worry about tire purchase and maintenance doesn’t happen often. However, Hoboken411 reader Lacie needs some advice about where in the Hoboken area is the best place to buy new tires!
So many tire choices in the Hoboken area!
“I never knew buying tires was such a enduring task! I have a sedan with “255/45R18” sized tires, and it’s time to replace them. Never had to go through the process, and was curious if anyone had advice where to go around here?
I tried Walmart thinking they were the cheapest around, but the selection was poor, and the costs prohibitive. The best place I found so far was FireStone, who has locations in Jersey City and Fairview.
Was also considering eBay, and having a local mechanic install. What is the cost to mount and balance a tire nowadays?
Before I venture too far, do you think there are some other shops worth investigating? I want to be sure that parting with over $1000 isn’t a total disaster.”
Anyone have a rock-solid place they can recommend? At the best value?
