JBA Speed Shop in San Diego Announces Opening of Its New All-Encompassing Performance Tire Shop

JBA Speed Shop recently announced this week, the grand opening of its new more expansive tire shop in San Diego. It will now cover the vast majority of cars, trucks, SUVs and EVs.

JBA is the premier tire shop for all performance tire needs and it serves San Diego’s neighboring cities and communities in Kearney-Mesa, Clairemont, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, La Jolla, North Park, Mission Beach, La Mesa, El Cajon, Santee, Lakeside and elsewhere in the San Diego metro area.

While bald worn-out tires with no tread are certainly unsafe, it's another major issue when tires look new and still have a full tread, but are more than 8-10 years old. So along with wear, age always needs to be a serious consideration when assesing the condition of any tire.

This is why inspections and tire rotation are also important. Rotating the rear tires to the front and the front to the rear, if possible on a vehicle with all four tires the same size (if the vehicle doesn't have staggered sizing; usually the rear tires being larger/wider than the fronts) helps to even out tire wear for those on the front that steer the vehicle. Proper tire inflation maximizes fuel economy as well.

This is especially important for front- and all- wheel-drive cars that mostly have the same-size tires all around to allow rotation, but also because the front tires on FWD and AWD cars also steer the car and put the engine's power to the pavement.

The newly-expanded JBA tire store sells all major brands and types of tires that provide a great ride, long life and a warranty.

JBA Tire Center believes in the best quality when it comes to tires, with the best service for the best price for cars, light trucks and SUVs. So with JBA, you can safely drive on the streets and highways. Brands include BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Falken, Michelin, Pirelli and Yokohama. Safety is the most significant benefit of the components used in the best brands JBA sells.

JBA provides old-fashioned tire service and flat repair and it also provides max fitment plus-1 and plus-2 options as well as wheel/tire balancing and rotation. It’s the best way to ensure wheels and tires are safely and properly balanced. The shop has one of the country's few Hunter road-force balancing machines that duplicates the weight of the vehicle during the balance procedure to ensure the best possible balance of every wheel-and-tire assembly.

JBA sells, mounts and balances conventional tires for daily driving needs for most cars, trucks and SUVs. The reliable, highly trained team makes JBA an ideal place for professional tire installation.


For 35 years, JBA Speed Shop in San Diego has been the go-to haven for thousands of distinguishing SoCal car owners who love American classic, muscle, and late model supercars. Owners of cars, light trucks and SUVs can now also get service and sales the old-fashioned way at JBA tire shop.

J. Bittle, the founder, has been providing ways to develop unique products for more than 37 years in San Diego. Quickly, his catalog of services, proprietary and patented products—including his revolutionary JBA Shorty Header—took over the high-performance exhaust market. That world-famous product was the one of the first to blend performance and reliability while conforming to California’s stringent emission laws.

Today, the 22,000 square-foot JBA Speed Shop features high-performance machinery and equipment, ASE-certified master mechanics, a massive retail parts store, tire center, storage center, and a high-performance car sales showroom. And, via JBA's GreenspeedCo division, using clean and alternative fuels that focus on a greener future.
