Prices may not be the cheapest, but you get good service
I once paid a visit to Stamford Tyres because my regular tyre shop closed down. I went to their megamart at Kaki Bukit.
The place is impressive to say the least and even that is not enough to do it justice. Even before you reach the place, your nose will pick out the scent of rubber that is unmistakable. I was presented with a bewildering array of tyres but for me the choice was quite easy as I am a fan of Falken tyres.
What I liked about the sales guy is that I was not pressured to purchase a more expensive set of tyres. I was asked for my budget and a preferred brand, if any. I requested for a set of ST115s. Those tyres are pretty old school but instead of being greeted with raised eyebrows, he offered to check. Best thing was there was a waiting lounge, well stocked with car magazines.
I was told that I was in luck as there was 1 set of 4 left but he would need some time to dig them up. No problem for me as the lounge was too comfy for me to leave. In the end, it took 1 hour but I had a good 1 hour nap as well, on top of a new set of tyres. What more can a bum ask for? By the way, they cost me 410 dollars.
Too much choices
I was at Stamford Tyres a few months back to check on my tyres. When I arrived at the shop, I was surprised to find such a big selections of rims and tyres. I just took a look around and already knew I would not be able to make any choice by myself.
Luckily, a friendly staff came over to assist me. He first asked to look at my car tyres. After his inspection, he advised me that I may not need to change all four tyres. I was advised only to buy two tyres and replace the two tyres that had more wear. He also recommended some existing promotions to me. He was very familiar with the products and I learnt a lot from him. He also asked me to change my tyres from air to nitrogen saying that nitrogen was more suitable for the hot roads in Singapore.
