Lloyd's Tire & Auto - Santa Cruz
Are there other tire places in town? For me, Lloyd's is the only one. I've been a customer for many years, and I keep going back. First, I like to keep my money local when I can, and Lloyd's is locally owned. Second, I like people who give me honest evaluations about what kinds of tires I need and if I can do well even with mid-priced tires rather than those that cost more. Third, the work is fast. I'm usually in and out in less than an hour, and that's without an appointment. I also like the free wireless connection, along with the "privacy desks" so I can work online without the worry of "shoulder surfers" reading my screen. The facility is clean, the staff is courteous, and the price is right. I've checked out discount tire places, but they charge extra for installation, totally negating the lower cost. Even so, I would be hard pressed to go anywhere else. I've never had a bad experience there.
