What People Say About Us


  • -Gee R.

    Good work


  • -Amy V.

    My experience here has been by far the best experience I have had with any auto service. I came in on a Friday at 5:30pm to get a tire fixed and the owner noticed my passenger side mirror was missing. He offered to fix it and told me to call on Monday and he could give me a quote. I was really reluctant since I had gone to many places before who quoted me outrageous prices. However I decided to give it a try and he gave me a very reasonable quote over the phone and we set up to come in on a Friday. The process was effortless. I came in, start to finish it only took an hour and I was on my way. I would definitely recommend this shop to friends and family. They are reasonable, they are honest and their customer service was excellent.


  • -Hollis T.

    Armando's shop was worth the drive for me from the peninsula. As a rideshare driver I need an honest, reasonable and efficient mechanic to take care of my ride. I got drilled & slotted rotors with ceramic brake pads for a more affordable a price then the dealer or a big tire & brake shop would charge me for regular parts.


  • -Walter L.

    Lopez Tires is an amazing shop they take car of my car like it was theirs. Honest reliable no B.S. work! I cant recommend this place enough!!


  • -Michael L.

    GREAT service at a remarkably fair price! I got a flat on my Mustang and they sold me a slightly used tire at a great price and had it on my car so fast it was like I never had a flat at all! I'll be coming back now when I need a full set of new tires, because they took such god care of me. Highly recommended.
