Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
The newly remodeled Lakewood Car Wash & Detail Center slays built-up vehicular filth with protective Simoniz products. During each drive-thru express exterior wash, fiberglass surfaces are bathed with a soft cloth before suds are rinsed away with a spot-free formula and contour drying to thoroughly eliminate water spots and pruned tires. A healthy serving of Wheel Brite, Simoniz Wheel Bling, and Simoniz triple-foam polish imbues exteriors with a long-lasting luster. The procedure also includes a rust inhibitor and clear-coat protectant to keep autos guarded from steel decay and barnacles. Each five-minute wash comes with unlimited use of vacuums and a $3 mail-in rebate for Simoniz Double Bond Teflon car-care protection.
Carwood offers hand car washes and custom detailing services that treat roadsters to a customized experience. Eschew bronze and silver runners up with the Gold Finish service, which polishes pavement ponies with a full-service wash of every surface, including a sudsy tickle of the undercarriage and an Armor All tire and exterior dressing. A clear-coat protectant, Blue Coral triple-coat treatment, and sealer wax lock in each vehicle’s new clean. Both washing services end with an air freshener to improve the olfactory aesthetics of car interiors.
