Ians has been a great shop in years past; they were trusted for quality professional work; and importantly for their honesty! Now it's apparent this has changed. I'm thinking they have more customers than they can handle or they are

It was a pleasure doing business with this company. I had to take my car in because one of the back tires had a nail in it. I was greeted quickly and pleasantly, though it was obvious everyone was very busy. My car was taken in within

I've been going to Ians for years and Ive always trusted him and his salesmen in reguards to there estimates and quality of products... That was until my last visit. I recently took my newer Mercedes in for a new set of tires and when I received the quote I thought it seemed a little high but since, like I said, Ive always trusted their work so I didnt question it. When I returned I was waiting in the office as one of the newer salesman came in with another customer, as he was going over the work to be done to her vehicle I relized that she was getting the exact same tires for $200 dollars less than I paid for mine. I immediately asked for the owner which I was told would not be in until later in the weekm I explained the situation and both the salesman were dumbfounded and had no answers. It has been 2 weeks and Ian Miller has yet to return my calls and is always gone when I go in. Maybe if I was a young female wearing a skirt I wouldve received the same price!!!!! Beware.... Ians Tires charges as they see fit!!!! If you happen to be a man you might wanna send your wife, girlfriend or daughter if you want the best price...

DO NOT GO TO IAN'S TIRE!!!!!!

They are the stereotypical dishonest know nothing tire shop.

I went into Ians for an alignment. The front tires had worn pretty bad on the inside. I had recently replaced the rear tires but let the fronts go

When I take my car somewhere to be worked on I trully believe thatthe people behind the business need to honest and trustworthy... I thought I had that with Ians but im sad to say but I now know that this is not the case. It has been brought to my attention that even with the economy and unemployment rates as bad as they are right now, Ians Tires is currently and has in the past, employed Illegal immigrants. And thats not even the worst part! It would be one thing to unknowingly hire one employee, but Ian Miller has KNOWINGLY hired numerous illegals and let the fact that they are using social security numbers that do not belong to them slide. This situation is why our economy here in the united states has shown no improvement and the unemployment #'s continue to rise. And the saddest part is that it will continue to get worse because of the fact that Ian like so many other employers like him have gotten away from it for so long that no one thinks they will be caught!! and until people take action things here will never get better!!

I have been taking my family and business vehicles to Ian's for longer than I can remember and have always been happy with the service, pricing and the people. Great place for tires, oil change and basic service - I highly recommend Ian's! Plus there is a doughnut shop next door...

I have been going to Ian's for years and always get my brakes and tires done there. Today I went because I must have a nail in my tire (which I bought there) and it is slowly leaking air. I asked them if they could check it out and fix the whole since it may be under warranty and I know they do it for free at Big Brand Tires even if you didn't buy the tires there. Ian's said they would charge me $22 to do it. I told them I would go to Big Brand instead since it is free and they told me they would give me a discount. It is not that I am being cheap. I just expenct that if we have given them thousands of dollars in business over the years, they should do this little thing for free since the competitors do it. I was very disillusioned and will not go back. So I ended up going to Big Brand and they did it for free. Such a little thing to loose so much business off.

Ian's Tire and Auto repair is a well-established business in Santa Barbara. They've been here for at least 20 years that I know of. They are very knowledgable about their work and are speedy as well. Prices for work are competitive with comparable places. The staff is friendly and busy. Good location too, where State and Hollister meet. I've had work done on my car at Ian's and have been very satisfied with their shop.

PROS: Very competent, well-established shop.
CONS: parking lot somewhat tight
