Reviews for George Oren Tire Specialist, Inc.

My experience exceeded what I expected, I went in to have two new tires installed one tire had a leak and I planned to replace both rear tires. After tires were inspected the one had to be replace because of placement of the nail. Informed tires had not exceeded the tread life, therefore only one tire was needed. THAT WAS GREAT!!

Happy to say, All my experiences with George Oren Tire have always been amazing. So far I've been there two different occasions, and I honestly say they care for your car as well as the people. They're a trusty staff and gets the job done in a timely fashion! ( FAST, but accurate) I most definitely recommend George Oren Tire specialist as a tire care provider.

Doug and mechanic provided good customer service. Had 2 new tires installed with balance, rotation, alignment, and brake check. It took about an hour to do work. Doug went an checked on my vehicle every 20 minutes or so. Cost was very reasonable compared to dealership and other tire places. Your service is better than Costco. If I bought my tires at Costco, an yes I would have saved about $9.00, I would have to wait 2-3 hours to have them installed.

The staff is great! Andy always greets you with a friendly welcome. He always goes the extra mile to help. Larry works on my car most of the time does an excellent work and is very friendly. This one of the many reason why I bring all of my vehicles to George Oren Tire specialist, Inc.

Folks at George Oren have been fabulous for 26 years!!!

Very pleasant while at the same time very professional. The office manager Michelle and the technician (Mike?) were both knowledgeable and friendly. From what I could tell, they both wanted to make sure that I was comfortable dealing with them especially since they both explained/showed me that instead of just getting a tire repair (on one tire that got flat from my running over a pothole two nights earlier) that I really needed to get three new tires to go along with the one good tire that was still on my car.
Then Michelle/Mike also explained how the tires that I was getting from them are covered under a very generous tire guarantee and they reminded me that to extend the life of these tires, I should have them rotated every 5K miles in which case they offer free tire rotation as long as we call for an appointment in advance of when we want to bring the car to them for this service.
All in all, I am super glad that I came to George Oren Tire in Oakland once I got a flat tire from driving over a pothole on nearby Park Blvd. As a result, I plan to be one of their regular customers from now on :)

I needed a couple of tires and I needed them quick. The Oakland store is the closest one to my home but because it was closed I arranged with Doug to go to the San Leandro store, and he made sure the tires I needed would be there (with less than 24 hours notice). I arrived at the arranged time and was in and out as quickly as possible.

The staff and crew at Oren are very good.
Roger, the lead mechanic and the one who performed the work on my vehicle (complex front end work) was extremely knowledgeable and did excellent work. I am a journeyman tradesman (30 years as an electrician) and have a very good idea of what makes a good technician/skilled trade worker, and Roger was top flight all the way. Also - the price of my new tires and the front end work was competitive.

I am always pleased with the service. Danny helped me replace my tires when I had a very tight time schedule and one service technician found a noisy loose bolt left untouched when purchased from the car lot. Highly recommended location.

Didn't solve my problem told me to start with rotors.
Recommended? Yes |  by , March 30, 2016
Most of my visits to the shop have been very satisfying in the past. I am sorry to say the last time was not as good. When I first talked to them about getting my rear rotors and pads remove and replaced I was given a quote of $110. When I went to have it done I was charged $130. I also asked to have my tires rotated at the same time. Upon leaving I noticed this was not done and had to ask them to do it then. Not their best day, I still will go back but will make sure we both agree on everything before we start any work.
Recommended? Yes |  by , March 24, 2016
Came in with a tire replacement need, and before I finished the magazine article I brought to read, the tire was mounted and fixed on the car, along with rotating the tires. Good work.
Recommended? Yes |  by , March 19, 2016
Very pleased with my recent visit to George Oren's San Leandro location. I reached out a couple of weeks ago to get a quote on 4 new tires and within a day Doug, the owner, reached out via email and phone to find out more information about my vehicle. Once I was able to compare a couple of prices, I scheduled an appointment for this past Saturday. Within 1 hour my car was ready for pick up. Would highly recommend this business to anyone looking for tires.

I have been a customer since the late 1980s. When I bring my car to George Oren for something as small as patching a flat tire, to getting new brakes, I am always happy with the results. I am reminded of the neighborhood businesses that I grew up with, which always did excellent work and gave great service. I especially enjoy the friendly, down to earth atmosphere. I have no reason to go anywhere else.

They saved the day for me... I have an old van , 1985 dodge ram, that had a flat tire. I had an upcoming doctor appt. and needed my van to be working. They were able to order the older model tires that I needed and fit me in the next day (a Saturday) to install them (2 tires) Everyone was very helpful and nice. I trust them now and they will be my go to place for tires etc. I will recommend them to everyone I know.

I had a last-minute, somewhat urgent need and Doug took care of me immediately with a great attitude. He ordered the tire from the warehouse and had it installed on my car in a matter of hours. And it was cheaper than the other two shops I called! George Oren has just earned a new repeat customer.

I had one bad tire. Sales person was very helpful in trying to find a tire that would match the other 3, but also advised me that life of the remaining tires was limited, so we finally decided to buy 2 new tires at this time. Mounting the new tires was very quick and efficient.
Recommended? Yes |  by , August 10, 2015
I came in thinking I needed one or possibly two new tires after the dealership said they couldn't be patched. They could have easily sold me new tires without me knowing anything different, but were able to patch my tire and send me on my way for a mere $20!
