Q - I’ve heard that when replacing two tires (when I don’t have different size tires on the front and rear), the new tires need to go on the back, can you share why?

A - Putting the new tires on the rear (when there isn’t a staggered tire size fitment), is the industry standard to help increase driver safety and to help prevent oversteer in wet conditions. Tires with deeper tread are more resistant to hydroplaning and this is why we place them on the rear. Please view these resources to learn more:

Q - How much does it cost to replace a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) Stem?

A - For most vehicles, the TPMS Stem cost $43.99 each (as of 1/7/2022) with the TPMS Reset Procedure (with the onboard computer) at $35 (this charge is the same whether 1 TPMS Stem or all 4 TPMS stems are replaced)

Q - How long do TPMS Stem Batteries Last?  (Thus, when is it become more likley I should replace the TPMS Stems?

A - TPMS Stems have batteries, but since they are sealed units, the batteries cannot be replaced.  Thus, when the batteries fail, the TPMS Stem needs to replaced.  We are seeing, that on average, TPMS stems are lasting 6 to 8 years. 

Q - If my vehicle comes O.E. (Original Equipment - from the manufacturer) with Run Flat Tires, do I need to put Run Flat Tires back on my vehicle when my tires need replaced?

A - At Lex Brodie’s, we have made it our policy to replace O.E. Run Flat Tires only with new Run Flat tires. Many vehicles that come from the factory with Run Flat tires are not equipped with a spare tire. Vehicles engineered with Run Flat Tires are less likely to leave you stranded on the road with a flat tire.  

Q - How do I know if I have Run Flat Tires?

A - First, look to see if the tires have "Run Flat" on the tires (Pirelli Tires list "Run Flat" on the tires.  Then, look for codes RFT (Run Flat Tire; Bridgestone Tires), SSR (Self Supporting Run flat; Continental Tires), ROF (Run On Flat; Goodyear, Bridgestone, Dunlop Tires), EMT (Extended Mobility Technology; Goodyear Tires), ZP (Zero Pressure; Michelin, Yokohama Tires), ZPS (Zero Pressure System; Michelin, Yokohama Tires)or DSST (Dunlop Self Supporting Tire).

Q - I’ve heard I may need to replace all 4 tires for my AWD vehicle, is that true?

A - It is best to refer to your owner’s manual to verify the requirements for you vehicle, as most AWD Vehicles will have specific tire replacement recommendations. Please also refer to our LBU (Lex Brodie’s University) resource: I NEED TO DO WHAT? - A 4WD TIRE BUYING GUIDE

Q - Is it ok to change the Speed Rating when replacing my tires?

A - A tire's Speed Rating indicates how fast you can drive, at sustained speeds, without the tire failing. Vehicles are engineered with tires to maximize that vehicle's handling, braking, and driving characteristics. Deviating from the O.E. Speed Rating can adversely affect driving characteristics. Please also refer to Lex Brodie’s Speed Rating Brochure: Click here

Yelp Review: First off I don't do Yelp reviews, good or bad. My experience here has always been honest and accommodating, as well as prompt! I have been bringing my car here for far more than just tires. The staff is always amazing, and I want to say thank you! to Lex Brodie's staff!
Robert S.
Yelp Review: I needed to change all 4 of my tires. I usually go to Costco because its less expensive. BUT because there is always such a long wait at Costco, I decided to go to Lex Brodie. Great decision. Customer service is first rate here and it ended up being less than Costco. It was fast!
Jay. Y.
First time at lex Brodie’s it was excellent service and the girls at the front were really helpful.
Ronald & Sally H.
Yelp Review: Having car trouble sucks but we all know that finding a good mechanic is half the stress of getting the repair done. I've been taking my cars here for years and they've always treated me right and charged me fairly for the work. The team is always so nice and their customer service top notch. Shout out to Kevin for helping me on my last visit. Keep up the good work guys !
Jay M.
Yelp Review: Outstanding customer service! Unfortunately, everything that could possibly go wrong with my vehicle, went wrong. I was more than stressed, until I contacted Lex Brodies Waipahu. I will continue to support such an awesome business. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Kristi K.
No one anticipates to have a flat tire while going about their day, so needing to deal with a flat tire is always a frustrating ordeal…Thankfully, paying a visit to Lex Brodie’s has never added to that frustration and instead provides a pleasant, friendly experience every time. Thank you to the team at Lex Brodie’s Aiea for taking care of me during my most recent visit.

Going to Lex Brodie's Waipahu is always like stopping by a good friend's house. Lei, Blossom and Kekoa always take care of business professionally and personally. They know their business and take care of everyone courteously and with the best customer service anywhere. The maintenance was taken care of completely, with an excellent review and recommendations by Lei. Blossom took care of the follow up appointment and parts ordering completely, patiently, and as everyone there, like old friends. Always great to see Lei, Blossom and Kekoa!
Phillip M.
Great experience. Very easily scheduling online, the service advisor explained exactly what they would do, and they got done quicker than expected!

Yelp Review: Jack and the girls at the front took really good care of me and my mom. They are professional and probably one of the most honest mechanic shops I have been to. You can tell they really want to make their customers happy and give them the most fair price they can. Jack and the sales girl I talked to broke down all the costs before starting the work so I knew exactly what we were paying for. Great staff, patient, kind, and honest. This place treats you like family and wants you to leave happy.

Melanie P.
Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.
Alan Y.
Google Review:My first time at Lex Brodie's. The service was outstanding! Went in for brake service and they did a complete inspection of my 4runner. I was expecting to replace pads and shoes. after inspection they informed me that my brakes were in good condition. There was no charge. Hard to find that kind of honest service. Not because it was free of charge, but because they were professional and honest!
Daniel F.
I always receive great service from this location. Today I had Jack and he was awesome. He explained the services and pricing. Extremely helpful. The woman who cashed me out (ugh I wish I got her name) was so kind and courteous, too! 5-stars all around! Mahalo!

Parks M.
Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Mark S M.
Google Review: I've gone here a few times over the past couple of years (oil change, brakes, safety check, alignment) and they've always been able to get me in within a day or two instead of the many week long waits of other mechanics in the area. They're very honest and straightforward, I was never pressured to get extra or unnecessary work done. A solid and reliable group of folks!
Emily J.
