The long story: I went to get two used tires to replace two more worn down tires (one tire that actually needed to be changed because of how worn down it was). They had two tires that looked to be in good shape but during the change out the nice younger guy who worked there noticed a large hole in one of the tires and was going to repair it. I decided that I didn't want to take the chance on that tire so I just went with the one to change out the really worn out tire. After five days this tire literally blew out on the highway on the way back from the airport. Luckily I had already dropped off the person I needed to at the airport because I waited over 2.5 hours for help. I went back to USA used tires and tried to get some money back or another tire for reduced price but the owner was rude and kept saying he only has a 3 day warranty, so I left and went to a mechanic (who is a great friend) to see if he could get another tire for me because I needed to get back to the airport to pick-up my partner. Well, I was in my office that has no phone reception when my mechanic tried to call me and ask if I wanted a used or new tire. Because he couldn't get in touch with me and because I hadn't had the time to tell him about my previous experience with USA used tires he actually went to that place to get me a used tire. Of course when I found out I was mad but it wasn't his fault. The 2nd tire got me to the airport and back but on the 2nd day it had gone flat. I talked with my mechanic and decided to just get 2 new tires and we took back that tire to USA used tires. The owner tried to say that the mechanic and I were liars and that this tire wasn't his (even though it was the one that didn't match the other tires) and an argument and name calling began between him and my mechanic. He also yelled at me and accused me that the first tire that I tried to bring back (the one that blew out on the highway) was cut with a knife by me. Which is ridiculous to say the least. We finally get the tire changed out with one of the new ones I had brought along without getting the money back for the second faulty used tire. Now for those not keeping track the count on bad tires from this place is 3 out of 3! The one I didn't get in the beginning with the large hole, the one I did get that blew out and the third one that went flat in 2 days. Now, I understand that things happen and I could have just had the bad luck of getting a bad tire the first time but 3? Add to that that the owner is extremely rude and unprofessional and you have all the reason to take your business elsewhere.

I hope by taking the time to write my experience will prevent people from getting faulty tires and potentially having a life threatening blow-out. Also, this place does not deserve to be in business.

I was screwed when they first opened and everyone told me (topix viewers) that I was not giving this Iranian owner a chance because I was against foriegn people in business. So I took my screwing and shut up and I have been told by numerous other people that had bought bad or defective tires or had brake pads installed that squealed from day one and would not even look at it. So everyone needs to learn by experiance.

I have never been to a business so dirty and run so unprofessional than this dump, building eyesore buildings whereas local business men would get shut down for putting up such a facility and he was the most rude person I have ever met in business.
