At Lopez Tires & Service you'll find the expertise and premium parts needed to get your hybrid or electric vehicle back on the road in no time. The days of being stuck with dealer repairs, and the sky high bills that come with them, are over. At Lopez Tires & Service you'll find highly trained and qualified mechanics with expertise in every area that makes your hybrid or EV different from everyday vehicles, such as electric drivetrain components and regenerative braking systems.
Your hybrid car's electric motor allows it to save gas when driving around in stop and go traffic. Getting your car rolling strains your engine much more than cruising along at a steady pace. This is where the torque of an electric motor comes into the hybrid drive system, and where your gas savings come from. At Lopez Tires & Service, our experts are trained to keep those savings coming, by ensuring that the electric motors in your hybrid or EV are in optimal working condition. We provide diagnostic testing, repairs, and preventative maintenance for drivers near Oakland to make sure your hybrid or EV remains at peak performance.
Without your vehicle's battery and charging systems, those fuel-saving electric motors will have no power to turn. The specialized batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles are the costliest part of the entire system, so they should be serviced by mechanics that have expert training in the field. At Lopez Tires & Service we ensure that only certified technicians, fully trained across all major manufacturers' power systems, will service your vehicle's battery and charging systems. As with your vehicle's electric motors, we can diagnose and repair issues, as well as sourcing and installing quality replacement parts should the job require it.
The capacity for regenerative braking is another clever feature of your hybrid or EV. This kind of braking essentially puts the electric motor(s) into reverse, assisting the mechanical brake pads and slowing the vehicle while generating electricity to charge the battery. A beneficial side effect of this system is the longevity that drivers see in the life of their brake system. At Lopez Tires & Service we carefully monitor your vehicle's brake pads to ensure the pads last as long as possible, saving you even more money in the process. When it's finally time to replace the pads, we'll have you back on the road within a matter of hours.

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.
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.
Quality service and pretty fast
Very upfront, helpful, and reasonably priced!
Very good CustomerCare nice people
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!!
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.
