I had 4 new tires put on my 2008 Honda Pilot today at this location and I encountered none of the "hard sell" or run-around reported by other commenters. In fact, despite being short-handed and obviously tired out after a long day, the people were courteous, friendly, and very laid back. The price was pretty competitive, too. Overall I was very happy with the service and the over all experience. I guess if I had to make one suggestion it's that if you're in a hurry and want to wait, you may want to check how busy they are before you go in. Like I mentioned, they were short staffed today and admitted that they were somewhat behind. This wasn't a problem for me because I was able to drop off the car and walk to work (and then walked back after 5 to pick up the car), but I can imagine that if someone were in a situation where they needed tires in an hour and the store was sort a mechanic the wait might take a bit of time. That being said, what made me happy was that they were very honest with me about the situation today and I'd imagine that they'd be just as honest with anyone else if they asked how long they'd have to wait. Overall a really positive experience...and that's not easy to say when you have to spend the money to get all new tires! :)
