Hudson Tire’s talented technicians restore motor mojo and smooth handling to road-weary wagons. After dispatching dingy, contaminant-ridden oil, techs infuse vehicular veins with up to five quarts of a fresh synthetic oil blend. Aging oil filters are similarly swapped for new, clog-free oil sieves. A tire rotation moves talkative rear tires to the front of the class before computerized wheel balance will correct uneven individual tires that can cause vibrations at certain speeds and during the rinse cycle. Before reuniting man and Miata, vehicles are probed with a 14-point inspection to ensure the roadworthiness of brakes, shocks, lights, and more.
