The skilled techs at The Tire Giant of Roseville and The Tire Giant of Sterling Heights service tires, engines, and internal systems beneath the prestigious banner of ASE certification. Name-brand tires from Cooper and Kelly replace vehicles' lopsided gaits with a precision capable of convincing yellow lines that they've been painted crookedly. Skilled technicians also service internal operations, hoisting autos of all makes, models, and origins onto full-service bays for repairs and maintenance. From sputtering engines to faulty brakes to climate-control systems with a bad source of weather updates, the versatile techs restore vehicles to working states and send them forth with steady tires and retooled performance.

At Mobil 1 Lube Express, a troop of trained technicians replaces old oil with up to 5 quarts of new fluid, screwing in a brand-new filter to match. Then, they'll put on their safety caps and perform an inspection—which includes checking fluids, lights, belts, and tires—before turning steering wheels left and asking tailpipes to cough twice. Cleaners equipped with smudge-eradicating suds and dust-hungry vacuums move in next, targeting grime and fingerprint mosaics with a full-service wash and hand dry, vacuuming interiors, and applying Rain-X and triple-foam protectants for extra defense against the elements. An application of rust inhibitor protects metallic veneers from corrosion, and a coating of Bugg Off affords rides a layer of defense against clingy insects and children wearing trendy magnetic vests. Specialists will also blast away crud from carriage underbellies and decorate wheels and tires with sprays of Wheel Brite and a tire shine.

Nearby, water hisses against undercarriages and bodies and vacuums purr across upholstery as the crew details rides.
