No one likes to have car problems, but working with the guys at Riker's made it easy. They really seemed to know what they were talking about and my car runs better than ever - thanks for the great professional service!

My son, a college student, blew 2 tires after running over a piece of metal on International Drive and had to be towed. He chose this establishment because it was nearby, and wanted to minimize the towing fee. The ONLY tires they had in stock to fit his 2001 Saturn were priced at $83 each. Maybe not too bad, but I checked a competitors website and found the identical brand and model for $58. The customer service representative tried to sell him 4 tires and an alignment (not saying that's a bad thing) for a total cost of nearly $600. (That is a bad thing.) Luckily, he chose to buy only the 2 tires he needed to get back on the road. After hearing about all this, I still didn't have a really bad opintion of these folks until I found out they also tried to convince him to have his tires inflated with nitrogen for an additional $12 a tire. Since he wasn't planning to drive his Saturn on Daytona Speedway or use these tires on an airplane, he declined the extra expense. After he came home I bought him an additional 2 new tires just for my own piece of mind at another large tire retailer. The tires I bought were a different brand, so I can't really compare the prices. I will say the cost of mounting and balancing was just over 1/2 what he paid at Riker's.
