BUYER BEWARE !!!
Went to this whacko 2 years ago for a used tire for my Sons Volvo. Tony didn't have the same size tire but guaranteed me the size he gave me was equivalent. Well 1 week later the tire came off the rim and almost killed my Son. Went and approached him about it telling him he almost killed my Son, to which he replied F*ck you and chased me out of the shop with a tire iron. He obviously was off his medication for the day, so I gave him a pass. Now a month ago, my Son went back there without my knowledge, and guess what? The same M/O, he gave a different size tire and said don't worry it's ok. Well last week the tire came off the rim again. Luckily it happened right in the driveway this time. I would go back there again to say something to him, but I don't want to end up in jail, and I don't want to make his Son an orphan. The Son is OK, and I don't blame him for his Father's mental problems. By the way, if your a good looking girl, you pay half price for tires, cause I had a few female friends that went there, and they paid a lot less than I did for a used tire. Tony, I hope your wife reads this, if you are able to keep one. Needless to say NONE of my friends go back there since I told them my story. So, if you still insist on going there, don't buy his BULL**** about a different size tire being equivalent, he's lying. He doesn't care about you or the safety of your family, all he cares about is MONEY. If you do go there, I hope you go there on a day when he takes his daily medication otherwise you may have to be dodging a tire iron. GOOD LUCK!
I've been going to this guy for years. In fact, I've brought my last four vehicles to him. I do not comprehend all of the negative reviews on here. Any time I've needed a tire repaired or replaced, I've gone to him and have been completely satisfied with the work. Always in and out in under five minutes. I go there when I need a tire fixed, not to date the guy!
Beware, this guy has some serious issues. Read previous posts, they are right on the mark.
Great service, good price. If you are looking for tires, service and price this is the place to go.
I will recommend this place to all my friends.
This guy is a hot headed arrogant unprofessional..and very ungrateful for business...DO NOT GO TO HIM
no probleem good service – Good service great deal saved hundreds thanks Tony
Best Serice in A neighborhood Environment – I have used Tires By Tony for over 10 Years. They have always given fast, accurate and affordable service to me. It has been great knowing I can get personalized service from a local merchant and not a big tire box store that you have to wait 4 hours to put tires on your car. Transactions are swift and courteous.They have always taken the time to answer all my questions, advise me on the best for my cars, and not what the highest priced tire they could sell me. I highly recommend them so that we all support a small neighborhood main street store which contributes to our community.
WORST ARROGANT BUSINESS – IF YOU WANT TO GET RIPPED OFF AND GET PIECES OF CRAP THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO DO SO! THE OWNER IS AN ARROGANT AND TOTAL DISRESPECTS HIS CUSTOMERS. AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF HE SELLS GARBAGE TIRES FOR ASTRONOMICAL PRICES AS WELL AS CONDUCTS BUSINESS THAT SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS. THE PRODUCTS HE SELLS ARE GARBAGE AND HE IS THE MOST DISRESPECTFULL PERSON YOU WOULD EVER WANT TO DEAL WITH. AND ON TOP OF DOING CASH BUSINESS TO EVADE TAXES HE DOES NOT STAND BEHIND HIS TIRES THAT LAST A WEEK! PEOPLE LIKE THIS SHOULD BE BANNED FROM ANY INDUSTRY. RETIRE!!!! DON'T BUY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO OVERPAY FOR JUNK!
Ok so if you need a tire or any kind of service for your car,stay far away from Liars by Tony.First of all why post your hours of operation if your not going to be open or available on those hours.Its like hit or miss with this place,one day they are open the other day they are closed. I guess it depends on how much vodka Tony and his loser son might have the night before.Never consistent and far from professional.So I called Liars by Tony and got big liar Tony on the phone.I asked him if he had my tire size and said that I would be picking up 4 tires,got the exact address to put into my navigation system and told him that I was on my way.So I get there at about 2:30 pm exactly 35 minutes after I spoke to big fat liar Tony ,only to find the gate to Liars by Tony to be closed.I called the phone number to Liars by Tony and got big fat liar Tony on the line. I told him that I had called before leaving my home all the way from out east only to be told that he is now closed.His exact words was I'm not putting the dogs back in and I'm not going to turn the air compressor on again we are closed.Now if Im running a business and my hours of operation are 9-5 and I get a phone call from a customer telling me that they are on the way over and they get there 2 hours and a half before closing. I think I should be open for business call me crazy.Bad business ethics very bad.
NO CARE FOR HUMAN SAFETY ONLY CARES ABOUT MAKING A BUCK – Been dealing with this clown for about 10 years, he’s rough around the edges, and can sometimes be rude, but I’m an easygoing guy and could just shrug it off, giving him the benefit of the doubt of having a bad day. This week was the last straw. Went there for 2 used front tires for my Sons car. Tony Jr says I have 2 nice tires, they may not be the same size but they will fit. I asked is that safe, and Tony Sr chimed in and said of course it is. When I woke up the next morning 1 tire was flat, I tried to put on the spare to return to Tony’s but couldn’t even get the lug nuts off because he made them too tight with the hydraulic gun. I had no choice but to try to drive it to a nearby gas station to put air in it so I can get back to Tony’s. The seal was broken on the tire, and me driving it destroyed the tire, so I admit I am to blame for that. After the gas station helped me get the tire off, I drove over to Tony’s. He had no sympathy what so ever after I explained the dilemma. He said you can’t drive on the tire like that and I told him I had no choice other than paying for a tow. I paid $30 for the tire, and he said he can give me another for $20 and that’s all he can do. Again being the nice guy that I am and I admit to taking blame for driving the car like that. Ok, that was done, now the same day, my Son and I are driving the car on the Southern State Pkway when all of a sudden we here a pop from the other tire and immediately pull over to see the tire is half off the rim. So now I go to my regular mechanic to ask some questions about tires. Tony sold me 2 tires that were 2 sizes thinner than the original tires. I needed 195x60 and he sold me 175x60. My mechanic told me that that was why the tire wouldn’t hold the seal because it was too thin for the rim, and Tony should know better, I guess all he cared about was the sale, not my safety. So now I go back to Tony and told him I don’t want the same tire, I want another tire because this is the wrong size and it won’t stay on the rim. Now Tony starts to yell at me saying tires don’t just come off you must have hit a pothole. I said no, you screwed me out of 2 tires by putting the incorrect size on. Well once I said screwed, he got very offensive and started cursing up a storm telling me not to talk to him like that, hands me back the tire and says our relationship is over get the f*ck out of here. Again I am a peaceful person and just decided to leave while he was still yelling, and I did yell back at him that he’s the one that told me it was a different size and that everything would be ok. It looked like he wanted to get physical, but for his sake I left because clearly he wasn’t going to win that battle.
SO MY FRIENDS BEWARE OF THIS INCONSIDERATE MANIAC
I found another nice place for used tires in Copaigue on Sunrise H’way called Lou’s used tires; they have a large inventory and friendly staff.
