Recommendation for Performance Tire and Wheel Shop
 
Hi, I'm looking for a second set of wheels for my car, looking for a recommendation for a trusted Performance Tire and Wheel shop in the Northern Virginia area.

Seconding Radial Tire. DMV PCA folks come from all around. Ask for Paul.

Or Kenny.

Ooo -- tell us more about Kenny's experience. I don't know what we'll do when Paul actually retires!

You can also go through Omar at Intersport -- they are in Tysons.

But many here use Radial Tire in Silver Spring. Besides offering full mounting/ balancing services, they can deliver the tires to a shop local to you if you have a preferred installer.

Also, I believe Matt Curry's Craftsman Auto is a viable option -- they can order just about any tire you want/ need.

Radial. They will check alignment and charge nada if nothing is needed. I speak from direct experience.
My family + ourselves > 40 years of excellent service.
They are just ok ;)

Another satisfied Radial customer, 40 plus years.

They have the equipment that will not damage your high $$$ wheels.

Definitely worth the trip to Silver Spring.

Kenny is the man but he will almost certainly retire when Paul calls it quits.

I just went to Radial Tire for the first time today and echo what everyone else has been saying. Terrific experience and will be back in the future.
