Established in Vernon, BC, Kal Tire has six decades of service under its belt and more than 240 locations across Canada. The independent shop's many different brands of tires - including brands like Nokian, Michelin, and Bridgestone - keep cars, SUVs, semis, and even mining trucks running in all weather conditions. Its collection of shiny custom wheels brings class to once-drab jalopies. And its professional technicians keep highways safe and cars and trucks running smoothly by handling everything from routine air-pressure checks and alignments to brake-pad and shock replacements.

Whether it's an oil change, transmission fluid exchange service, or other routine-maintenance service that brings cars to Quick Lube Plus, every ride rolls out of the shop’s pristine service bays spruced up with one of three free courtesy services—or "plusses"—such as lubing door hinges, interior vacuum, or a dash wipe treatment and spritz of air freshener. After the Quick Lube team determines cars' specs with handheld VIN scanners, techs place used oil, filters, plastic jugs, and other materials into their proper recycling containers. Drivers await their rides in a green-and-chrome reception area, where they can sip coffee and rifle through magazines or a stranger’s hair while perched in black cushioned chairs.
Blaskin & Lane’s auto technicians keep cars and trucks rolling smoothly with a slew of maintenance services. They replace worn tires with fresh rubber to keep cars safe during trips, exchange damaged brakes with fresh parts that help autos stop more quickly, and swap spent batteries with brand-new units to keep electrical systems running strong. They also offer alignment services, computerized engine analyses, and cooling-system maintenance, which keeps cars from stopping every 50 kilometres for a sports drink.
The Oil Drop drains dirty automotive fluids, balances and rotates tires, swaps out belts, and performs any other vehicular first aid, maintaining cars for smooth sailing with a staff of auto aficionados eager to make all services easily understood by their clients. Car-lovers can bring in a revered road-hugger for its 5000km checkup and oil change (from $49.95) without disrupting an entire day. In just 10 minutes—as long as it takes to boot up a Commodore 64—the Oil Drop's experienced professionals perform an oil change, 32-point visual safety inspection, and top off all fluids, equipping drivers for another safe 5000km on the open road. Car-caretakers can also apply the value of the Groupon to other preventative maintenance services, such as driveline services ($34.95+), swapping out a filthy, disgusting air filter ($14.95+), and slapping on new moisture-defeating wipers ($10.95+).
With more than 15 years of automotive experience under his belt, OK Tire & Auto Service owner Shayne Casey leads his staff in retooling vehicles to spur peak performance and safety.

They also tackle cosmetic blemishes such as cracked or chipped windshields, restoring visibility to drivers and their GPS-equipped kids shouting directions from the backseat.
