Starting a new topic here about service recommendations. A while back, I asked about fridge repair, now I’m in need of a place close by to plug a tire that picked up a nail. That’s what I get for living next door to a construction site.
I’d normally go to King’s on N. West St. but they are closed until Monday for some strange reason. They must close for a vacation or something.
Not helpful since it’s not downtown, but my anecdote is related to downtown so I’m sharing it anyways.
I’ve been going to Atlantic Tire in Durham/Morrisville for many years, and I always get the road hazard warranty for new tires, so it costs nothing to repair and pro-rated to replace. I’ve never gotten such good value for anything I’ve purchased in my life. I’ve gotten so many nails or metal pieces in my tires over the years that everyone there knows me by name and knows my car. I might have a problem with driving to construction sites to check on the progress. The sacrifices I make for you people…
5 years & 19,000 mostly long distance highway miles. The car sat so long with a flat (due to a puncture probably caused by the construction next door) that the sidewall of the tire got damaged. I didn’t notice it was flat because I was wasn’t driving the car!
