For almost a half century, Jim's Used Tires has sold tires. Not content to deal merely in wheels, the shop soon added services designed to make sure jalopies stay road-ready. Oil changes, emissions checks, and inspections help to catch potential problems before they hatch and chew the upholstery to shreds. Jim's technicians also detail cars and offer free tire rotations, flat-tire repair, and roadside assistance.

Inspired to help car owners save money in the wake of an economic downturn, The Wrench-it Center's founder, Zachary Anderegg, opened the heated bays of a full-service, do-it-yourself garage lauded by the Deseret News as "Salt Lake Valley's most innovative—and hands-on—automotive repair business." Amateur mechanics can access both high-rise and low-rise lifts as well as a 200-piece toolbox, and they can also plug into the garage's Alldata automotive repair database so they don't have to ask their car to honk three times when it stops hurting. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, when visitors hit a snag, this computer system "shows drawings of just about every part and how they fit together for all makes and models." When the garage doesn't have the part for a required repair, free parts delivery can summon rare factory components and more aerodynamic bumper stickers. Owners can enlist the shop's mechanics to coach them through the repair process, and at any point they can hand the job off and enjoy the full-service treatment.

Big O Tires' Healthy-Car special hones in on an array of auto parts, giving your wheels an all-over inspection to curtail any mechanical ailments or auto-body botherings. The 30- to 40-minute treatment begins with an oil change, which replaces fatigued oil with up to 5 fresh-faced quarts and includes a fluffy new oil filter for improved performance on roadways, highways, and intergalactic skyways. Free-wheeling tires are treated to a tread-soothing rotation and inspection, and brakes are scrutinized for uncharacteristic squeaks and squawks. Any remaining extremities receive much-desired attention during the 30-point inspection, a thorough exam that susses out auto aches, pains, and engine plagues. A fluid refill and chassis lube round out the service, which is backed by a nationwide warranty.
