Since 1994, the technicians at Tim Leslie Tire have kept vehicles of all sizes—from industrial tractors to huge trucks and trailers—dressed in high-quality polyurethane tires. The company has since expanded to include another location, Tim Leslie Auto & Truck Service, which tends to patrons' car- and truck-repair needs. They evaluate autos using computerized diagnostic equipment and motor-oil-based Rorschach tests before performing services such as engine replacements, alignments, and electrical repairs.
During the 4- to 6-hour service, licensed technicians run through a detailed checklist to make sure cars are in good physical condition. More than three dozen items are on the list, including:Among the remaining items are belts, air filters, fuel lines, door locks and hinges, wipers, oxygen-sensor gauges, and lights. To finish things up, the technicians top off all fluids and put the car through a complete road test to see if it knows which speed-limit signs are optional.
