Tim is an honest and fair businessman that provides a great product and great service. He test drove our car and checked everything twice before letting me drive my car away. The new tires make my car safe to drive and we owe that to Tim's incredible service!

We have been buying our tires through Tim at Tims Treads for years and cannot say enough kind words about Tim and his staff. He is always kind and courteous and goes out of his way to make sure you are getting the best product at the best price. Tim has been in the tire business for a long time and knows his product. If you are looking to purchase tires there are many choices but none compare to Tims Treads, where honesty,integrity and customer service still mean something.

There is nothing honest about this guy. Bought 4 new tires from him and 16 days later the front passenger tire blew on the freeway almost killing me and leaving me very injured. This guy, Tim, did not give a damn and blamed me because""tires are never defective"". And on top of it, when I came in to get a copy of my receipt, he was literally screaming at me 2 inches from my face. The guy is only concerned about money and one of the biggest jerks I have ever encountered. Do yourself a favor, STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHOP- THEY DON'T STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS, BLAME YOU AND HE IS ABOUT AS BIG A JERK AS YOU WILL RUN ACROSS. SAVE YOURSELF A HEADACHE!!!!!\n

I was dead wrong about this guy. Bought 4 new tires from him and 16 days later the front passenger tire blew on the freeway almost killing me and leaving me very injured. This guy, Tim, did not give a damn and blamed me because"tires are never defective".

Tim's (meaning Tim and his people) offer about the finest tire buying experience I've ever had (I'm 72). Knowledgeable, efficient, courteous and fast, but most of all VALUE.

My coworker told me about Tim's Treads, so I decided to do a little research. Tim & crew at Tim's Treads are truly outstanding! These other postings were spot on. He truly is golden! Here's my story:

My BMW 330i needed new run flat tires, which are not cheap & a pain to find the right people to install. The dealership wanted an arm , a leg, & my first born. After extensive research, I wanted some Michelin PS2 ZP which is a relatively new tire and apparently hard to find. I checked over a dozen places from WheelWorks, Big -O, Sears, CostCo, & some local shops. People were either clueless, didn't have the right eqpt. to install these, didn't know Michelin made these, or were just plain too expensive. The only place that was knowledgeable and had them in stock was tirerack.com and they were the lowest price --- UNTIL I talked to TIM'S TREADs.

Tim's prices were extremely competitive to tirerack.com, but he had access to the tires within hours (tirerack.com was a 2 day delivery at best). So, I called Tim this morning, he got the tires by this afternoon, I drove up from Pacifica and he installed them while I waited (less than half hour) and was kind enough to let me watch the process and explain to me what he was doing.

He's been installing tires for the nearby BMW dealership for years. If the dealership can trust him, so can you! I will be bringing the wife's SUV to Tim's Treads & will definitely refer all family & friends to him too.

I can't say enough good things about these guys. Basically, BMW Level of Service without the BMW price tag.

Tim's rates are best. He is an honest guy-often tells me that I don't even need a new tire and just patches the hole or whatever. I hate to feel like I am being scammed by tire guys and I know I can trust Tim.

Tim's done most of the tire work on my BMWs. I pull in, he does the job and I drive away happy. I highly recommend him. Plus, he has really good rates.

My mechanic said I needed new tires, and I can't stand Cain's Tires in San Rafael - they are consistently rude to me, even though I've gone out of my way to use them because they are in my immediate neighborhood (and told them that; even going in the first time with a cheery, Hi! I'm a neighbor of yours!). Also, even Cain's' doesn't recycle anything, not even newspaper, even though I made all the phone calls to get them set up for it. Grrr.

So! A neighbor recommended Tim's. I took my car to him, he checked all the tires, swapped out my nearly new spare for one that was funky, and told me come back in a few months. I asked about quiet tires, and he went out of his way to call the Michelin dealer to find out if/when a sale or rebate program would happen this fall/winter. So, I will eventually need a pair of new tires, but in the meantime, I just drive by Tim's, he checks them, and gives me the real scoop. Oh, and he charged me, like, $7.50 for the tire swap. He's golden, this guy.
