This is not a rubber tire place as much as a bunch of quality mechanics under a straight-shooting reputable manager and chain. I've been going to Goodyear mechanics for 17 years now since my main guy got too busy and I discovered Vespias' Goodyear. Be it Vespias' or Gemini, I've got nothing but praise for the Goodyear Company. As for pricey, yes the tires aren't cheap, but then they aren't "cheap tires". I've been riding on them for years on my 4 wheel vehicles. My Harley has Dunlops, but then.."different animal". I'm not a mechanic, but I've taken 2 auto and 2 motorcycle mechanic courses back during my school days. These mechanics, and the managers do it right. If it doesn't need fixing, they tell you. If it can wait, they tell you. If they can fix it with a wrench in under 5 minutes, No Charge (generally...off the record). They're up-front, no BS, reputable...they've earned my trust and admiration. If I was rich, I'd tip 'em. This'll have to do for now.
