Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
Herb's Garage is a mainstay of the Costa Mesa community, having maintained and repaired area automobiles for 45 years. ASE-certified technicians work on foreign and domestic vehicles, providing a free 15-point inspection with all services, including tune-ups, oil changes, and repair of problems plaguing the brakes, exhaust, electrical system, cooling system, and transmission. As their cars are tended to, clients can wait in the indoor lounge, which features a color TV and a saltwater aquarium where fish flit around the tank or circle it aimlessly to demonstrate existential futility.
