Commercial Tire sports multiple staffs of ASE-certified auto experts that keep vehicles in road-worthy condition through a variety of automotive services. Keep air in comfortable circulation with the air-conditioning tune-up, which preps A/C units for hot weather by making sure they blow air as cool as an igloo stocked with Ray-Bans. Cars that pull too much to one side can best benefit from the four-wheel alignment, which straightens out rides for vehicles with adjustable rear suspension. During the alignment, Commercial Tire's specialists take precise angle readings at all four wheels, calibrating the true and parallel position of a car's asphalt-kissing cylinders. They then set each car's rear thrust line to manufacturer specifications and center the steering wheel, leaving you free to drive home on a straight path without getting trapped in an endless circle inside a cul-de-sac.
At Idaho X-Sports, visitors experience the high-speed thrills of barreling down snowy slopes while safely seated in cushy snow tubes. Lifts transport guests to the top of the hills, where they can choose from 1200-foot runs in three varying levels of intensity, from gentle slopes to inclines steep enough to scare away even the most skilled stilt-walkers. At the bottom of the hill, a yurt welcomes spent guests to warm up by the fire and replenish their energy with food and drinks. Visitors may also snag Idaho X-Sports' skis and snowshoes and explore more than 10 miles of groomed Nordic ski trails.
Metro Express Car Wash's drive-thru shower quickly and effectively cleanses chariots of grime, from exterior to undercarriage and tires. The five-minute sudsing treats road warriors to a triple-foam polish and full-body protectant, restoring the fresh-faced glow cars had when their owners first brought them home from the nursery. The speedy but thorough buggy bath also includes a two-step wheel cleaning and tire-gloss treatment, which buffs lackluster rims until they sparkle. Further, an undercarriage rinse and rust inhibitor eliminate underbody dirt build-up and rinse away hitchhikers clinging to the undercarriage. Free vacuum services allow owners to maintain their autos' inner beauty. Metro Express Car Wash is open seven days a week despite adverse weather conditions or unforeseen robot uprisings.

After an unlucky coin-flip forced him to sell control of his own tire business, Frank Bruneel had no choice but to start anew. The initial loss turned out to be fortuitous in the long run, however. Now, after affiliating with a vast tire-supply network, his Bruneel Tire Factory boasts 10 locations with ready access to an expansive selection of rubber circles. Frank has leveraged expansion to diversify the company's services, with each location staffed by ASE-certified technicians who perform routine maintenance, align tires, replace worn shocks and struts, and service AC systems by rigging them to vent the prom king's breath.
