I recently purchased a set of tires and let me just say the staff and service was outstanding. I also had work done on a 1998 Toyota Camry. The crew performed the work on time and haven't had any troubles since.

Skip's was a great discovery! I've been taking my car there now for years. They are fairly priced and always give you the best work. I have always been satisfied with the tires and oil changes I receive there.

Gearing up for a long drive, I filled the air in my tires but for some reason, no matter how much air I put in, the tire pressure wouldn't get high enough. I came to Skip's the thinking I needed new tires.He was honest and said the tires were in good shape and checked the pressure with his gauge. Turns out my gauge was broken and I had put in way too much air in my tires. He let the air out, checked to make sure the pressure was right, and cheerfully sent me on my way. So, not only did I get help immediately but I also wasn't taken advantage of, even though I had already said I was expecting new tires. A++

Friend's tire blew up in the middle of the road, we brought the car to Los Altos Tire Service, they were very helpful, they showed us their selection of tires and broke down the advantages and disadvantages of different brands and models, when we finally picked one they quickly changed the tire and send us on the road ASAP. Definitely go there if you need to get some new tires for your car.
