What kind of work are you having done, I know a ton of mechanics in the area
I wouldn't personally go there, unless you want to leave with a set of tires you don't need
Not that they can't get the job done, but you can probably get the job done cheaper elsewhere and not get talked into buying a set of new tires

They are great people but just not very good at mechainics, they forgot to tighten an oil plug in my office mgrs car and it had a hell of an oil leak.
My mom stopped to get a tire fixed, they left her lugs loose and in ruined her wheel.
I went out there to get help and they skated around and denied to help her.

I was telling about those to stories at NAPA and they told me about a guy that had exhaust there and he took it back at least 3 times with broken welds and finally took it to an exhaust place and they had to remove it because the welds were so bad they couldnt be fixed. I knew the poor boy and ask him about it....cost him over $500 to get the $200 fixed.
These are all true stories that I have first hand witness to. As for Tim he is a great guy but they need to just stick to selling tires only and find decent mechainics to turn the wrenches.

How could they be ''great people'' and skate on helping fix their mistakes?
So many bad stories about them, they should be investigated for fraud and/or theft.
Sounds like all that were done wrong need to contact the better business bureau.

They have business insurance which will send their own attorney that will deal with your issue in court, and their business will continue unaffected. You probably won't even see Tim or the others in court.

Also, LOL at you for thinking that the BBB can have any affect on a business. They have no legal ability to change or affect a business whatsoever. They are not a licensing agency and have zero control over how businesses conduct themselves. They are simply a review and reporting agency who gathers data and attempts to mediate disputes when possible. They can't DO anything except write reviews and data about businesses on their own website.

I personally won't go to a tire shop for mechanics work. Let me tell you my story:

Thirty years ago when I was attending Walter's State, I took a car to a tire shop in Morristown because the front tires had issues. It had more to do with the age and weathering of the tires than the mileage.

I picked out two tires, which were alot of money for a college student, and waited for them to be installed. My car went up on the rack, and I walked outside and lit a cigarette. I had full view of the bay. In fact, I could stand near the back of the car and still be outside. The mechanic took off the wheels/tires, looked things over, then proceeded to pop the old tires off the rims.

Some dipshit carrying a clipboard arrived, looked at the car, and asked the mechanic what else he found. He said something like "Nothing. The car only has 22k miles on it. The tires are just crap."

The clipboard dude, turns out to be the service manager, says something like "so it needs a complete frontend job?". The mechanic didn't respond. I walked out of earshot, and waited. Sure enough, the service manager found me and suggested the extra work. I told him I have a mechanic for that, just put the tires on. He said but we can do it right now for only $139.00. I said no thanks.

I took the car to a mechanic and asked him if I needed a complete front end job. He laughed and said "what do you think?". I said no way. He said right.

I thought this was the end of it. I was wrong. Too be continued....

Continuation....so a couple of days later, I'm at work at a local restaurant. It's about 9:30 at night, and I'm told to go on break. Sitting in the back dining room with two or three other employees. One of them, a girl, has a Ford Pinto, like me.

Waiting for laughter to stop....ok.

Anyway, she asks me about oil consumption. I basically said I check it when I gas up, add if needed, and change it every 3k or 4k miles. She said she hasn't needed to add or change in like 15,000k miles! or some ridiculous number. I said surely not. Even if it's not low it's got to be filthy. She said no it was clean as a whistle. I said show me before you leave tonight.

Since she brought up cars, it reminded me about my tire drama. So, I'm telling the people on break what happened. At the end, I said the service manager is a crook. Our assistant manager heard me, and asked who I was talking about. Evidently he had been listening around the corner. I told him. He said "thats my brother-in-law". I asked what's his name. He told me his name. I said yeah that's him.

He said "you're a GD liar. He's a good man and honest man". Now, I don't get mad easy. I can pretty much laugh at most things. I told him his brother-in-law didn't realize I was standing within earshot, and I heard him. He said I was mistaken. I said there was no mistake. He said again "you're a GD liar".

Well, I'd had enough. The fact he was calling me a liar, in front of my co-workers, and a couple of customers that were in the back dining room who I'm sure didn't appreciate his swearing, was more than I could take.

I got up and said "lets take this outside". He said "we ain't going outside". I said "you call me a liar again, we're going somewhere". He mumbled something as he walked away, and I went after him. The general manager heard us and he intervened. In the end, we had to apologize to the customers, who did tell the GM that I didn't cuss or swear.

Anyway, I probably bored you, but just wanted to show you why I feel the way I do about tires and mechanics. Has nothing to do with Morristown Tire and Performance.

One more thing. The whole episode upset me, and I forgot about the girl and the oil. Two days later her car seized up. As I suspected, she was checking the transmission fluid instead of the oil.
