Great service with a can-do attitude. The people here went out of their way to help me. Recommended!

Good place to get new tires. Their service is moderate but and can be limited with special wheels and rims.

What a great place to get my car worked on. The first time I went there, I'd been to other shops and was told that my brakes were bad. These guys told me that they were fine. Honest and great. They have worked on everything from my tires to my power windows. Cheaper than the dealer and reliable, so far. Jeff, Gene and Ed are awesome

Ok, I shopped around looking for a good deal on some Wranglers assuming the bigger places would have better prices. Well, after wasting 2 weeks of my time, I found out that my Local Tire Shop had the best prices, best service and.....was interested in what I "want", not like the others who wanted to sell me what they wanted. It was plain and simple, I wanted Goodyear Wranglers installed on my Chevy Silverado Z71. Gene had the Best Price, installed them while we shot some bull. He also rotates his stock so you dont get Old Date Coded tires. Like 9yr tires some O company tried to sell me for my Vette. Anyways, Great Shop, Great Prices, Great Service! They also have some pretty smart Mechanics that do honest work for honest pay, as per my neighbor, who says we All should support our Local Tires Shops, that support Us. Keep is Local....Rocket

Today was my first visit to TU and I have to say I'm actually very happy with an auto shop for a change. I initially stopped by the new location on Stevens Creek, but upon arrival I noticed the place pretty much empty. The manager Gene (I think - I'm old and bad with names) approached me and told me they don't actually open until Monday. Then he gave me a business card and told me that since I stopped by, he wanted to make it worth my while so he wrote a note on the card stating that I get any tire I want at dealer's cost if I went to their San Tomas Aquino location. I only needed 2 tires, and I had them installed within 90 minutes. I estimate I saved about $150 by getting the discount. The manager there (TJ I think) was a great guy and very professional. It was obvious he liked dealing with the public and he's very good at it. Now I need my brakes checked and I will definitely go back to them. I highly recommend the San Tomas Aquino location and I also plan to take my car to the Stevens Creek location when they open. Finally a great auto shop experience!

A friend of mine told me a bout this great tire shop. I went in looking for four new tires, however they did not have the ones I was looking for. They offered to order them for me and have them back in the next 2 days and they even offered to knock 20% off the price. It would have been a great deal if I did not need the tires right away. When I need tires again I know where to go next time.

I credit my car's long life to the team at Tires Unlimited. They have kept my poor older vehicle in tip top shape for the past three years. The team is helpful and professional. Every visit I always receive a written quote and verbal explanations. If I leave my car at the shop I get calls throughout the day updating me on my car's progress. The team treat their customers like family. One time my battery light came on while I was a good bit away from home and I called in worried I wasn't going to be able to make it. The manager told me that if I was his daughter he would recommend that I drive home but not try to go out more than to take my car to the shop because my battery had probably gone bad.

I have been using Tires Unlimited for around eight years and have had a great experience with their customer service. I have refered friends and family to this shop and they have been pleased also.

Sometimes mechanics can be a little scary; they use words like "crankshaft" and wield wrenches with ease. I'm uncomfortable with the idea of coveralls as couture and the use of grease as an accessory/cosmetic. Although I am descended from a long line of tinkerers, contractors, and mechanics, I am terrifically without talent in the mechanical arts. I don't care how an internal combustion engine works, just as long as it propels my car, and um, please don't get my Hello Kitty seat cover too dirty, thanks. So I'm really excited that I found a mechanic (tires, mostly, but they do brakes and other stuff) that I can trust and return to. Top Five Reasons Why I Love Tires Unlimited5. They have Dr. Pepper in their waiting room. Mmmm, my favourite. Why does it taste so good when it comes out of those icy cold cans ? They also have uncomfortable chairs, some old toys that look as though they've never seen a sanitizing solution, and a janky TV/VCR unit and a few decaying VHS tapes. If you need to be here for a while, grab a pop and start flipping though the channels. 4. Speed of service.Chances are, you won't need to be in that room for very long. I live down the street, so I don't have much of a problem walking home (or around the corner to Taqueria Los Pericos) if I have to leave my car for a while. That's only happened once, when I had them do some break repair. They've rotated my tires in about an hour, replaced a tire in a half hour, and done a few other things in incredibly great time. Maybe they drink a lot of coffee.3. It's affordable. First off, their rates are affordable, and for the quality of service they do, a total steal. Sometimes I take my Blazer in for one issue, and they let me know about another issue I've overlooked. They give me a call and offer to fix it (and let me know how necessary/unnecessary it is-I like that), and when I give them the go-ahead they say my favourite word: DISCOUNT. Yessssss. If they're gonna tell me that my whatsit-whoosajig is broken when all I wanted them to do was put on new brake pads, they damn well better not charge me up the ass for it. I really dig that.2. They give me what I want, not what I "need". I drive a compact SUV (oxymoron duly noted) and this makes tires hard to find. Some places have suggested I get the super-tough, bigass tires made for the SUV's the size of a small estate. I don't need those. I also don't need the tires that your grandma's Camry has. They do a good job NOT upselling me, keeping it in the small truck/SUV range AND don't give me crap about wanting the cheapest ones. I recently had them replace a tire that got a screw in it. My dad splurged and bought my last set of tires, so the same model was a little more than I wanted to spend. I let them know I really didn't care about having my tires match (that's like cleaning the bottom of your shoes, who does that ?), and to just give me the cheap ones. Now. 1. They are so nice. They send me thank you cards. Now, I know they do this because I occasionally shell out big bucks to have them rotate my tires and build me brand new brakes and replace axles that have been seriously damaged by leaking brake fluid. They like me because I give them money, and they want me to come back. I don't care. They send me thank you cards, and recognise me as the girl with the crazy father (don't ask). They are very easy to deal with, and they don't look like they rifle through my coin tray to steal all my new state quarters. I think I'll keep them.
