The owner Mike is crazy. My paperwork from Mike's was printed "Fully Guaranteed". I had replaced two tires on my truck, so I politely asked what the guarantee covers. He screamed at me that there were no guarantees in life. Then I asked why it says it on his receipt and he said it was his trademark. Huh? Then he started swearing and yelling about how stupid his customers are. I calmly told him thank you for educating me about tires. Then he calmed down and tried to sell me a service package for our fleet of work trucks. I'm not sure if his prices are the best, but it doesn't matter. Until he takes his meds., I'm not going back!

I have never been treated so poorly in my life. This psycho verbally abused me in front of his employees, customers and my 9 year old son.same story as others, I went back to get an alignment after spending $1,100 in tires. I had to get it done a different day because I needed some other repairs that I rather have my mechanic do. This SOB tried to charge me knowing damn well it was suppose to be included w my purchase. He became irate when I tried to explain I had work done elsewhere. He called me every name in the book from B&@%# to Ahole to MF. He even came around the counter took his glasses off as if he was going to hit me. I will NEVER return, I will bad mouth you to everybody I know and I hope someone beats the sh__ out of him punk @ss MF ! You will get what you deserve.

I've been a long term and satisfied customer of Mike's for years until today.

I worked with owner Mike Cone over the last several days to locate the tires I wanted for my car. He was caustic at times with his advice and discounted my reasoning for wanting a particular tire for my vehicle. He seems to be saying that he knows tires but the customer's wants and opinions mean nothing. Fair enough. He's been in business for years and his attitude is his own business.

To make a long story short, after finally locating the tires I needed and getting them a day after they were promised we took the car in to have the tires replaced.

We were there for two hours waiting for the tires to be installed and an alignment check performed. Mike's staff removed our old tires and let them sit on the ground for over an hour while servicing customers who came in after we had. After finally getting the tire install on the road Mike asked if I wanted the alignment checked. I told him to go ahead. He assured me this was only a free check and not an actual alignment.

Nearly another hour goes by while this is taking place until one of his employees enters us the waiting room to tell us that an alignment is needed. I told that employee no, not today after which the employee left and another long wait began.

When the car was finally ready Mike Cone attempted to charge me for the tires and an alignment! I told him that we had told his employee that we did not want the work performed. My wife was with me and clearly heard me tell the employee no, not today. At that point Mike started to raise his voice and asked if he should "eat" the cost of the alignment. I repeatedly told him that we had told his employee (an English as a second language type) that I had declined the alignment.

Mike launched into demented tirade accusing me of "f......" with him for days along a slew of other profane language directed at me. He called the employee in question to the office to ask if I had declined the alignment. His (English as a second language) employee stated that I had authorized the work! Cone got louder and louder. I attempted to pay him for the work but he would not accept payment. He shouted that I should get out of his store and never come back. My wife attempted to pay him for the work and he would not accept her payment either. Cone then kicked me out of the store and repeated that I should never come back.

I have never in my life dealt with a business person as demented, deranged, and possibly dangerous as Mike Cone of Mike's Tire Man. I did nothing to trigger his profanity laced outburst other than to call attention to the fact that he has an employee who either doesn't understand English or the word no. In fact, I'm pretty sure no means the same in Spanish as it does in English.

Mike Cone is an elderly man, possibly afflicted with some form of dementia. He's clearly not fully in charge of his business or his emotions and self control. My advice to anyone reading this review is to avoid doing business with Mike's Tire Man.

One more thing. Mike apparently has a history of big game hunting and apparently lives part time in South Africa. This is a man who clearly should not be able to own firearms. His explosive hairtrigger temper and possible ownership of firearms here in the U.S are a bad combination that could be deadly.

Our afternoon at Mike's Tire Man is one we'll never forget

I went to Mike's Tireman to get tires for my car.. I was surprised i had good customer service considering all the stories that i hear. All the employees there are hardworking. But i thank the person in the front counter Alex. Had me in and out of the place. I went back and told my husband that i didnt have any problems there and he said he had met Alex before and that he provided him with excellent customer service eventhough everyone contributes to a good job done sometimes every employee should be recognized by name.

The inside of my truck was looted. I always thought that Mike's tires was the best becuase they have been around for years, but things came up missing in my truck that was there when I dropped it off. Not only that , but they did a dangerous brake job . I talked to my neighbbor that has been going to Mike's for years and they told me their horrer story. When they brought it to the management's attention at Mike's, they were disrespected infront of the customers. I wish that I read the reviews before I took my truck in. I would say go to Mike's at your own risk. There is no recourse. I need my truck and had to bring it to another place to get the job done right. Also, I didn't appreciate the way they talked to my wife . I was working and asked her to make a call to them for me, they not only talked down to her, but they insisted only on " talking to her husband", like she was a dog!

For starters, I tend to be longsuffering and a people pleaser. I went to Mike's to get a job done that would be covered by insurance so money was not an issue. At first, Mike insisted that my tires had NEVER been rotated. I personally took the car in every 4000 miles and watched them being rotated and told him so. Back in the office, he lashed out at me, completely humiliating me in front of all other customers (who seemed embarrassed for me and who had to listen to his tirade). I took my keys and walked out of his business, never looking back, swearing to never return and have told my friends about it. Most of them don't go there anyway because they too have been the focus of his wrath or have already heard the horror stories. Poor excuse for a business...

Mike is a tool. My wife dropped me off to pick up my truck. After I had walked away he started to rip into one of his employees with every foul word in the book. The problem is my wife and 8 year daughter were stuck sitting there because they were boxed in. This man has mental problems. When I mentioned that I did not appreciate his language in front of him his response was "she has electric windows doesn't she". (The windows were up; he is so loud it didn't matter.) He then did everything he could to provoke me into a fight. I have heard he has a tire shop and whore house in Africa where he spends a lot of his time. He has been in and out of jail here and in Africa. It is truly sad, a mechanic told me he's like that 24/7, and he said you get use to it. The man is a bully; he is abusive to his employees and customers alike. He knows that employees, who are mostly Spanish speaking, do not have options and he treats them like slaves. As I tried to walk away he and his son followed me to my truck trying to provoke me. I would not stoop to his level. He is ignorant, sad and pathetic.

When I first got to mike's I was put off by his abrasive attitude.... but he promptly helped me out and when he realized I didnt have a spare tire.... he asked if I was interested in buying one.... when i told him i couldnt afford it...He told one of the workers something in spanish and walked away.... I thought nothing of it. Within minutes he was putting a spare tire and rim in the bed of my truck... I said wait wait I cant pay for that..... He said dont worry about it.... just bring me 35 bucks when you can!!!!!!!! The rim alone cost that much.... nevermind the tire.... Of course it is a used tire... but either way... that was pretty awesome... Mike may be tough to deal with.... but he is a pretty good guy.... A few days later I returned with the 35 dollars... Mike was shocked... he didnt expect me back...

Worst service ever. Very rude and unprofessional. They tried to say I needed all these extras to drive up the price. Mike the owner was arguing with a customer and threatened him that he was going to beat him up, he got in the customers face and pushed him all because the customer decided he would rather go some place else. I will never go back to this place. I went to Big John's after I walked out of this store because of the scene that the owner cause and Big John's was very helpful and honest and also beat the price that I was quoted at Mike's. Don't go to Mike's Tires ***BEWARE***

I just went there a few days ago. I have had an okay experience with Mike's before but today just wrecked my view of them. I had gone in for an oil change a bit ago and recently realized that it was leaking so I go back in to get it checked. When I get there Mike quickly checks the leak and says he'll work on it but then promptly insults me with vulgar language for not getting my tires changed with them. I take it as a joke and laugh but he just looks at me and says that it's not funny.

I'm sorry but for anybody in service to insult a customer and believe it is okay needs to have their head checked. I was told by many people before that Mike was a very mean person but I decided not to believe them, and I now regret my mistake.

Take your patronage elsewhere, Mike does not deserve your money or time.

Mike mistreated my son two weeks ago when he mentioned that my son's Expedition needed new windshield wipers. My son stated he would wait to purchase them at a later time when he had the money. Mike was his usual condescending and sarcastic self, stating that my son would end up having to buy a new windshield for $300. My family and I have had enough of this jerk. We're never going back and will advise others not to as well. In fact he was so mad my son didn't purchase windshield wipers that he refused to tell my son if he needed new tires when my son ask him to look at the ones on the Expedition.

I have bought many tires from Mike's. For some time Mike himself was not there and his daughter was running the shop. She was fantastic to deal with. She got me hooked on Mike's. Her customer service was really really good. She even knew how to talk to my wife about tires. Recently her dad took back over and he is not so good with customer service. He is abrassive, pushy and I dont really trust him. I was going to walk because he did not have any good tire deals when suddenly he found some. I suspected they were there all along. He also had some guy try to sell me brake pads when I had just had them changed. That pissed me off because he insulted my intelligence. If you can deal with Michelle his daughter you will get great service otherwise Mike is a pain in the ass. His employees told us in Spanish he was a real A-hole to work with.

I love Mike's! I've been going there for 12 years and yes, Mike can be a bit abrasive, but it's part of the fun. Great tires, great service, great prices and they are honest. Go, be nice to Mike, he'll be nice to you and everyone will be happy. Or, as someone else suggested, bring a cross and some garlic. ;)

In the last few months I returned to Mike's Tires to buy tires and get tire related service. This is after almost 20 years of refusing to do business with him after I witnessed him verbally abusing one of his workers. He screamed at him like he was a worthless human being, and I decided right then and there I would not give him a single penny.
I took my business elsewhere, and 20 years later I decided to see if things improved. I was very happy to hear Mike wasn't there. The story was that Mike was on a "leave of absence"...but the truth is really that his family insisted he stay away because of his drinking problem and his tendency to drive off business by pissing-off the customers. I believe the family had the right idea. Gustavo is the best thing that ever happend to Mike's Tires. If it wasn't for him I believe Mike's Tires would have gone out of business a long time ago. He is friendly to the customers, he gives you a competitive price with great service, and I've never seen him verbally abuse the workers. I'd like to see Gustavo own that business one day and I'd bring all my business to him.
Well this brings me to the other day. I went there to see Gustavo to get a great price on tires for my truck. I had the money in my pocket and was willing to slap some cash on the counter. I pulled up and there and to my horror Mike was running the shop. I should have pulled away but I figured after 20 years the guy must have changed his ways. He walked over to me and I told him I needed 4 tires. He checked the size and walked me into the back to show me some tires. He showed me a few sets of tires in different price ranges, and even one set which was smaller then the stock tires I currently had. I told him I was concerned the smaller tires might not handle as good and he responded "dude...it's a P/U truck". Well for most P/U trucks that might be the case, but I drive a new 381 HP Tundra (which handles great) and good grip is essential for this truck. I took his comment as an insult to my intelligence and responded "well it looks like I'm done here". He tried to get me to come back but I kept going and drove off. I guess 20 more years just might be the answer.

I don't know what it is about that man. He's got the potential to do far more business in SCV if he'd just keep his anger under control and respect people. If his family is insisting he stay away from the business he should do so. If he can't be a gracious businessman then he should hang it up. 20 years hasn't changed the man...too bad. Mike...if you ever read this review...make Gustavo the owner and call it quits. You are one man, but you have left the carnage of many many more.

The story was that Mike was on a "leave of absence"...but the truth is really that his family insisted he stay away because of his drinking problem and his tendency to drive off business by pissing-off the customers. I believe the family had the right idea. Gustavo is the best thing that ever happend to Mike's Tires. If it wasn't for him I believe Mike's Tires would have gone out of business a long time ago. He is friendly to the customers, he gives you a competitive price with great service, and I've never seen him verbally abuse the workers. I'd like to see Gustavo own that business one day and I'd bring all my business to him.
Well this brings me to the other day. I went there to see Gustavo to get a great price on tires for my truck. I had the money in my pocket and was willing to slap some cash on the counter. I pulled up and there and to my horror Mike was running the shop. I should have pulled away but I figured after 20 years the guy must have changed his ways. He walked over to me and I told him I needed 4 tires. He checked the size and walked me into the back to show me some tires. He showed me a few sets of tires in different price ranges, and even one set which was smaller then the stock tires I currently had. I told him I was concerned the smaller tires might not handle as good and he responded "dude...it's a P/U truck". Well for most P/U trucks that might be the case, but I drive a new 381 HP Tundra (which handles great) and good grip is essential for this truck. I took his comment as an insult to my intelligence and responded "well it looks like I'm done here". He tried to get me to come back but I kept going and drove off. I guess 20 more years just might be the answer.

I don't know what it is about that man. He's got the potential to do far more business in SCV if he'd just keep his anger under control and respect people. If his family is insisting he stay away from the business he should do so. If he can't be a gracious businessman then he should hang it up. 20 years hasn't changed the man...too bad. Mike...if you ever read this review...make Gustavo the owner and call it quits. You are one man, but you have left the carnage of many many more.

I don't know about the old man, but his son "Mike" showed up at 8PM last night (4/1/10) one hour north where I was stuck at a rest stop off I-5 with a blown front tire on my bigrig diesel pusher RV. He brought me a Michelin tire (at less than list price - I checked), mounted and installed it, and then proceded to check ALL MY TIRES for pressure, wear, and age. Not only that, but he insisted on doing the same for my friends bigrig as well. He said he could not in good conscience let us continue our trip with possibly under inflated tires. He spent at least an hour with us and drove an hour each direction, yet charged only for 2 hours service call. I would say he went OVER AND ABOVE my expectations. If his dad is grumpy, then he makes up for it. I say take your business there and be mindful of what you say to "piss off his dad" :) and then be thankful that you found a fair, honest, and hardworking company to do business with!!!

My experience at Mike's Tire Man was an EXCELLENT one!! First off I called to see if they had my tires in stock, they did not. So Gustavo ordered them & they were at Mike's within the hour. Gustavo called to notify me that my tires were at Mike's. I went to Mike's to have them installed. Well??.my husband gave me the wrong size, a 17 and we needed an 18. So Mike's had the wrong size too! At this time now it was after 5:00 and Michelle called her local tire supplier & persuaded them to bring the correct size tires (due to my husbands error & keep in mind the tire distributor had closed @ 5:00) the tire supplier even brought the correct tires to Mike's. This to me, is a true commitment & shows an excellent relationship between supplier & seller. The tires were installed, the car was aligned and I was on my way. All I know, is any and all of my experiences at Mike's Tire has been an excellent experience. From my first phone call to the minute I walked out the door. I HIGHLY recommend Mike's Tire for there is a true sense of CUSTOMER SERVICE and commitment to making every customer a happy one! I was there for awhile and I saw customers come and go. The business flowed like a well oiled machine. (no puns intended). If they could make it happen, they all did! Not just for me, but for everyone that came and went. Thank you everyone at Mike's for righting a wrong and making me a very happy customer! I will definitely see you all again!!

Mike is just being Mike. Who cares, you're not buying expensive items from the place. Just good tires that will make your car drive great. And that's what they do there. Great prices and reliable tires. Just remember to bring a cross, a wooden stake and some garlic, and you should be ok.

Cons: he yells at his help and curses all the time

Yes Mike is a jerk. Yes going to Mike's is 'hardcore'. HOWEVER, I still go there because 1) he always has the correct tires in stock, and 2) his guys work hard and I get out the door fast. Who cares if Mike's a jerk ... you're only there for 20 minutes.

Whether or not you think Mike is "grumpy" doesn't take away from the fact that his crew is hard working and I've always found him to be honest. He doesn't have time for the usual games some customers play. I have bought tires from him for many years and will continue to do so.

Going to Mike's is going hardcore. If you like being yelled at, this is the place to go. I can't understand how this business is still going. I would not recommend this place.

Mike is CRAZY! He might blow up and yell at you if you say something that makes him mad, and that could be anything, he will use profanity in regular conversation with customers, dont be shocked. He is like the "soup nazi" from Sienfeld. Ive gone there for 16 years and know what to expect when I go. He has decent deals and his employees do good work. On my last visit to his shop He kicked me out and wanted to beat me up because I asked for change to tip one of his employees, the funny part is that he wouldnt take the money for the services rendered. My gain I guess. It will be my last time doing business with that lunatic. If you have heavy equipment that needs tire work, Mikes is the place to go, if its just for car tires, do yourself a favor and go to Americas tire company, they do free flat tire repair even if you have never bought tires from them and you wont have to worry about if someone is going to belittle you and yell at you in front of other people for no apparent reason.

Customer Service is my big factor in determining if I'm going to return to a business. I figure that SCV is big enough that if they treat me mean, there are plenty of other places to go do. I like Mike! And, I've had no problems. I highly recommend him.

We have used Mikes Tires on several different occassions. They have ample inventory and seem to be able to please their customers. Their prices are very good and their service is Good.

Mike (the owner) is insane and treats both his customers and his mechanics with complete contempt. My mother-in-law, wife and I were treated this weekend to a profanity-laced tirade that could only be described as utterly shocking. There are way too many options in tires to tolerate this maniac's antics.
