Lloyd's Tire & Auto - Santa Cruz

Have been living in Santa Cruz for 25 years, and I would not go anywhere else for tires. There may be other shops in Santa Cruz that are as reputable , but Lloyd's is near my house, and I've never been given a reason to shop elsewhere. They are quick, professional, and charge a fair price. Their mechanic services are also excellent - alignments, oil changes, etc. Give 'em a try. They're honest folk, and they're a LOCAL small business.

They are open at 7:30 am Mon- Fri until 5 pm. As a commuter you cannot beat that. They have been locally owned for decades and they have local coffee.. they even have a sign that says think local.. You always see them busy when passing on River St but I totally recommend them for your tire issues. Things I noticed 1 Santa Cruz Roasting Co coffee-- Steve's Smooth French in the morning will calm any stressed out mo'fo 2 new and redecorated remodeled show roomlounge area they won the remodel at a convention-- how kick arse is that? 3 they have their own newletter with tips, places to check out, information about vehicle safety and a chance to meet an employee btw if an employee has Office Space as their favorite movie I have to try the place out 4 Free Wifi stations oh yes.. you can surf the web 5 The place is impeccably clean 6 The guys work at 7:30 AM going in and out checking in and out vehicles not back and forth from the coffee stand These guys are the traditional don't say much, work hard and get it done types who are very well versed about products. Their customer service is also stellar. My tire comes in tomorrow afternoon and in the mean time they gave me a temporary tire to use so I can commute. My total cost of new tire and labor-- around 150 total..which I am willing to pay after this whole $%% fiasco

I drove in at 2:30PM with a warning on my tire pressure monitoring system and a nail in one of my tires. 15 minutes and a $20 bill later, my problem was fixed and I was on my way. Sweet!Update, a couple of weeks and 1,000mi later: No further problems. The patch held.

Top-notch business, been buying tires from them for years. Glad they have a branch in Watsonville now, so much more convenient than driving into that traffic nightmare on River Street in Santa Cruz.Lloyd's is the best!!!

Love this place. I've bought two sets of tires and had 3 patches I drive a lot.I know NOTHING about tires, so I'm in a difficult spot as a consumer. The folks at Rusty's Honda & Mazda across the street told me to go here and it was a great recommendation. This probably isn't the cheapest place to get tires in the county. Maybe you could save a few bucks at Costco, but everyone seems to have a bad experience there. I would rather spend a little more and be able to trust that I won't be oversold on a tire and that the work will be done correctly and they will stand behind the work. They have always been scrupulously honest with me, saving me major $ by telling me when I was paying for more tire than I need. They asked me questions about the driving I do to find the right product. I hear the old-timers talk about how things used to be - that when someone shook your hand, it meant something. And when a business didn't treat its customers well, they lost those customers and went out of business. It seems like those places are few and far in between, that we are stuck with the big box retailers and their uninformed salespeople and all that fine print. Lloyd's is that kind of locally-owned, old-fashioned handshake business that you hear about from the old folks. Grandpa, I found an honest business!If you are frustrated by places that don't pay attention to you and don't seem to know what they are doing, please give Lloyd's a try.

I know jack squat about cars. I make no pretensions to the contrary. But I do know that when I need tires, I go to Lloyd's. They were recommended to me by friend about four years ago, and I've been going ever since. They are always courteous, informative, quick, and reasonably priced. I've never been pressured into buying something I didn't want.I was just there this morning to get a flat repaired ran over a nail. I just pulled up no appointment, they patched it up, I was in and out in less than 30 minutes, and the bill was 15 dollars.They just did a significant remodel to their waiting area. It looks real snazzy. They have free coffee and wi-fi while you wait.

Kind of hard to rave over a tire store, but they're there when you need them. Lloyd's carries high-quality tires Michelins, baby, but if you tell them the kind of driving you do, they won't sell you more tire than you need. Good service, too. They're pretty busy, but they've always found time to fix my flats in pretty short order. It's the only place I've bought tires for 15 years, and I have no complaints whatsoever.
