Customer Reviews


You've got a good crew going, and I will absolutely come back. I have had no prior experience with Independence. I just moved into town and needed a tire mounted. I ran over a roofing nail and I took it to Walmart (sigh, I know!) and they said the tire was done for, sidewall puncture. Your guys disagreed and fixed it. Professional salesmen (Neil) and the mechanics were just as friendly and helpful. You've got a good crew going, and I will absolutely come back.

Excellent Service! Thankyou for the excellent service yesterday on the installation of my new truck tires. You guys are great, 25 minutes to put on all 4 tires, I felt like I was having service done by a Nascar pit crew. The tires work great for plowing snow too, I even plowed a driveway in 2 wheel drive today just to see if I could. Thankyou, I will definitely be back.

Newly opened here in Petoskey.... Newly opened here in Petoskey so I thought I would give them a shot, Jason and his crew served me very well, and at a fair price. I was in and out quickly. I will be using Independence Tire in the future. Since they opened 3 days ago I have already had 3 of my cars worked on, and I have not been disappointed. Thanks, and welcome to Petoskey.

Sam Rojas

5 Minutes after close It was a Friday night when my tire had a small leak someplace or so I thought. I didn't want to wake up Saturday morning with a flat tire. It was five minutes passed closing but the open sign was still on and the door unlocked. The 3 employees let me come in to get a patch for my tire but my tire was actually starting to fall apart. So they stayed after on a Friday night after closing and put a new tire on for me. I couldn't have asked for better service thank you Roger Flickinger and the 2 other gentleman that stayed after closing to help me out. They told me I probably wouldn't have made it home without my tire blowing out. They were very helpful at helping me out and showing and explaining to me why my front tires were so worn I plan on going in next week for another new front tire and getting my care aligned. I can't thank them enough for their time.

Friendly Service Excellent, friendly service. The fastest I have ever received anywhere. This service was performed at the Independence store in Petoskey.

Marlene Little
Wish we has one down here 1. We were at the Petoskey store, not the store shown at the top of the list. 2. Our alternator stopped working at a gas station. They came up and helped get the van started so we could drive it back to their station. 3. They were very curtious, found the part we needed, had it delivered and put in the van in less than their stated time. 4. Very refreshing for auto repair places. 5. We would highly recommend them for any time of service work. 6. Wish we had one down here.

CHARLES HALE
back on the road within an hour. So many thanks to everyone who stayed after closing to help me with my unexpected tire blow out. I was 200 miles from home, and because of unexpected road debris, lost my right front tire on the highway. The tow truck brought me to the tire center just after closing time, but the staff very graciously stayed open, got my new tires installed and had me back on the road within an hour. Thanks to all!

Catherine Martin
extra special care Thanks for taking extra special care while installing our tires on our corvette. Very professional and excellent team you all have. Will definitely be back with our other vehicles. Service is outstanding!!

Phil Knapp
Price Lower than quoted The price paid was lower than the price quoted. The facility honored an older flyer's labor rate of $50/hour. Very satisfied and will be back.

Fabulous.... The staff at Independence Tire are fabulous! I have always had nothing but positive things to say about them. My car unexpectedly had a flat tire yesterday, and Jason was able to work with me and my situation and get me back out on the road. I truly appreciate you all :-)

Mellisa Hall
Went beyond.... I wish to thank you for taking care of my wife and her 4 sisters. They showed up at closing time and you did a full front brake job, you also found them a motel with which they were very pleased. You went beyond what would be expected of any repair shop. Thank You Bill Crain

Mary Crain
No high-pressure sales..... On vacation, had a tire leak, staff quickly examined tire, found it un-repairable, installed spare. No high-pressure to buy tire. Professional, courteous, helpful, with a caring attitude, both garage and counter staff. Would definitely use if not so far away from my home.

Lorne Larch
Repairs were completed in an efficient manner... When you have a problem with your vehicle you always think the worst. The staff is courteous and diagnosed my problem very quickly. Repairs were completed in an efficient manner and the cost was within what I expected. Would not hesitate to return for any future repair needs.
