If you a woman and not looking to get ripped off, stay out of Southern Wheels. Due to an odd work schedule my sister was taking my truck to get an inspection sticker. They placed a rejected sticker on my truck and said that the truck failed due to the rear brakes and lower ball joints. The rear brakes and front brakes were less than 3 days old. And all the ball joints, when inspected by 4 other people were found not to be defficent in any manner. Another sad point to this story is that they had just given this same vehicle an inspection sticker about 3 months ago. The only reason it is getting another one is because I had to have the windshield replaced.

I was pretty upset by all of this and started asking around and it seems that every woman has had a run in with them. BEWARE! THEY ARE CON-ARTISTS!

I had the same type of experience at Southern Wheels-they put a rejection sticker on my car and offered to "fix" the problem for me. I'll never go back again and neither has anyone else in my entire family. They have a really bad reputation for this.

Tommy has worked on my vehicles and I have to say I was impressed by the price and that it was actually fixed. A lot of times you are charged and told the problems are fixed but end up going back a few times. Not with him though…

All you people oviously want something for nothing. I have had only the best service there and I will continue to. Yes I am a woman and I have never been disrespected or cheated. They offer the best in the area. They have a great survice manager and owners.And know they do not cut tires or charge for parts dilivery. They don't have to rip people off to make money. They have a great custermer base there and if you were rejected it's because your vehicle was not safe for driving...Love you guys @ Southern Wheels!!!!!

I had work done on my vehical at Southern Wheels. I was so thankful for all they did. If it wasn't for Bill Benemann who diagnosed the problem, I would have been paying for work on my car that didn't need to be done some where else. Thank goodness the problem was solved and I'm back on the road again.

I am sure they have been fair with someone, but it seems to be the exception and not the rule. BEWARE! That is all I can say. I have not and will not ever return to this place.

You are living in a make believe world. Benneman couldn't fix a bag of microwave popcorn. What a joke.

About 4 years ago, I had a terrible experience at southern wheels, alot like the first poster. They put a rejection sticker on, then said they could fix my truck. They made it worse than before. No sticker, no repair. Not sure it even needed any thing even done to it..
But I trusted that they knew their trade. Will NEVER make that mistake again.
