The other day Val posted about Sierra Auto Service. I was reminded of it today, as I got the tires of my cacharro rotated and balanced at Balado Tire at 67th Avenue and 8th Street.
The cacharro I’m referring to is my 1966 Dodge Polara. I bought this car for $900 in 2004.
Of course, I’ve put a hell of a lot more into it since then. One of the first things I did when I bought the car was get the set of whitewall tires you see in the picture. I got them at the aforementioned Balado Tire. I’m a big fan of mom and pop businesses, especially if they are owned by cubiches. And Balado is great operation with fast service, great prices and a personal touch. Jose, the older gentleman that runs the place, is a great guy and so are the installers.
If you’ve got a flat or a leak don’t waste your time at El Mago del Ponche. That joint is always crazy busy. Balado will have you on your way in a jif. And they have great performance tires too. I got a set of Cooper tires for my Cadillac CTS when the factory Goodyears wore out and saved a bundle. So stop by and tell them the guy with the light blue cacharro sent you.
