We sell tires that provide a solid and attractive foundation for racing, cruising, or displaying your beautiful vehicle. If performance is what you’re after, we have the largest selection of performance tires in all San Diego county. The folks at JBA Speed Shop will provide you with the know-how and expertise for your particular make and model so you can rest assured that your car is getting the best tires.

Cheap is a four-letter word. We don’t do cheap tires and that’s why we aren’t a bargain tire store. We believe in excellence. Our tires are crafted with high quality materials so you can safely burn rubber. One of the biggest benefits of expensive material used in our tires is safety. Tires are the most important component to keeping you safe on the road. You don’t want to be the guy on the side of the road with the feathered tires. You want tires that you can depend on.

JBA is not only the best stop for tires, we also provide tire balance and rotation. Looking for mount, balance and tire rotation in San Diego? We’re your shop. What is mount and balance anyway? It’s the best way to ensure your tires are safely and properly balanced. You should be balancing and rotating your tires about every 7,000 miles to make sure your car is performing efficiently. You should be able to stick a penny between your tire tread to see if your tires have a safe amount of tread. Front tires bear the brunt of your braking and that shows itself in worn down tread. Tires without tread are a big no-no and can result in a nasty accident. This is why tire rotation and inspection is vital. Moving the rear tires to the front helps to balance out the overuse that one section of your vehicle gets.

Whether you have a muscle car, classic car, performance car or are just looking for the best professional tire installation from a team of reliable, highly-trained mechanics, JBA is the place for you. We offer a wide selection of top-notch tires for virtually all makes and models. Your car is a valuable investment, your tires should be too.
