MADISON HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN -- My second time visiting this store for tires and alignment. They are friendly and fast, my car sat home all weekend after I visited the store Friday...walk out near the car to take trash out and notice some of the lug nuts (5 out of the 20)way off of the studs (literally on the last thread)....I'm 2 weeks away from making a 1,600 mile round trip to Mississippi and don't think I have to be going over their work like this after I pay them to do it properly. If I didn't notice this and had a wheel fall off on the freeway potentially causing a major accident, they would have quite a lawsuit on their hands.
So if you are going to visit a tire shop, make sure your wheels are on all the way after leaving....you could be in for a surprise that you definitely don't want to happen.
Don't Go Here!

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN -- My stepson brought a car in to get new tires. When removing the tires the mechanic broke a stud for the lug nut. The mechanic pulled the caliper and tried to get the stud out. He was unable.to. When he put it back together he put a brake pad on backwards. When the car got back home the car was growling when the brakes were applied. The backward brake pad wound up chewing up the rotor. I wound up replacing the front pads, rotors, and I knocked the broken stud out. Belle Tire took no [responsibility]. I would up eating the cost of the rotors and brake pads. Would I go back no. A letter to Allen [snip] did no good.Add reply
I took my car in to get the tires looked at because my car kept telling me that it had low tire pressure. After 2 hours of sitting there they told me there was nothing wrong with my tire. I left the store and the next day the tire pressure light came on again so I took it to Ford only to find out there was a huge nail in my tire. Really? NOT pleased. Add reply

ROYAL OAK, MICHIGAN -- I have nothing but good things to say about the Belle Tire in Royal Oak, MI on Woodward. They have ALWAYS impressed me. Whenever I get a price from the dealer for repairs, I find that Belle Tire is almost half the amount. The dealers tack on labor for everything. There have been times when Belle Tire didn't even charge me because the problem was so small or they checked out he car and there wasn't a problem. The dealer would have charged me a labor charge -- at least. The guys at this shop have been there forever. I asked one of the repairmen if he ever thought about opening his own shop and he said he'd never leave Belle Tire because it was too good of a company. They are not going to risk a bad reputation.

This is not true for all Belle Tires. There is one in Beverly Hills/Southfield that I had very bad service. Now I only go to the Royal Oak shop.
LAKE ORION, MICHIGAN -- I think of Belle Tire every time my rear brakes squeal and lock up! And it only cost me $400.00 for them to stick me with this problem. The Lake Orion location insisted I needed new rear drums when I brought my pickup in to check out a minor noise in rear end. And, what a pain in the rear end they have been! Less than a week after the "repair", I was forced to stop at the Plymouth Belle Tire location to see what was causing a loud thumping noise. Oh, nothing much, they said. Just the wrong sized rear brake drums installed for my vehicle. They "corrected" their error, and later I left for my trip to Texas. Now the rear brakes lock up regularly, especially in the warmer weather. Guess I'll have to get the Belle Tire repair repaired, probably for another $400.00. My assessment: You go to hell when you use Belle!1 Replies - Latest reply on 04/13/2011Add reply

GARDEN CITY, MICHIGAN -- I have dealt with Belle Tire before to fix my tires and had no issues with them. I had needed to get my wheels cleaned so I took it there and they did a good job. I had also needed my oil changed so I let them do that too. I guess they had inspected my car which they did on their own and told me I needed to have my back air shock replaced soon. so I got that done the next day. a few days later my car started acting funny by misfiring and stalling a few times. I've never had any problems with my car until they changed my oil. when I parked my car I opened the hood and found they had not put my dipstick all the back in half of it was still sticking out and then when I checked my oil they had put way to much oil back in! Now I'm having more issues with my car shifting and just not driving right all together. tomorrow I'm going up there to let them know what they did or more so didn't do and find out what other problems they had caused other than my oil just flying all over my engine.1 Replies - Latest reply on 01/22/2010Add reply
