Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
With participating locations nationwide, Auto Care Special lets customers reach out to their local garages for a grab bag of free and discounted maintenance services. Cards may be redeemed for multiple vehicles over the course of one year for services such as oil changes, safety inspections, and engine-light diagnoses. Those who move or create alter-egos over the course of the year can scan the locations page for participating garages in their new cities of residence to receive a complimentary maintenance bundle.
The Meguiar's-certified technicians at Redlands Car Wash & Detail Center spruce up hot rods with Belanger technology and an armory of chemical and tactical advantages. With each journey through the wash tunnel, a fusion of neo-glide foam pads and Lavaggio cleaning products gently jostles exteriors free of dirt, tar, and fake VIN-numbers. Technicians preserve paint jobs from the sun and elements with extensive hand waxes, and ensure auto bodies are only dried by the soft swaths of microfiber hand towels.
At each of its three locations, Auto Collision Solutions restores dusty and damaged autos and RVs to their former glory with thorough detailing treatments and a multistep restoration and repair process. As a direct repair shop, the esteemed business has earned the right to broker directly with insurance companies, handling all ordering, estimate writing, and repairs in a streamlined process, eliminating the need to wait for an adjuster or pay dues to the Worshipful Company of Insurance Middlemen. Technicians conduct a free estimate, and courtesy shuttles or rental cars whisk customers to home or work while licensed mechanics renew all makes of engines and auto bodies. Techs undo collision damage via a precise, computerized color-matching process before scrubbing up the inside, exterior, and tires with extensive detailing.
Akin to a real spa, Redlands Autospa & Detail pampers cars from bumper to bumper with a range of washing and detailing services. Cars can careen through the automatic washer for a diligent scrub down or find their way into the hands of deft cleaning technicians for a sudsy hand wash. The team brightens exteriors with wheel and tire treatments and helpings of Nano Shine and Meguiar’s spray wax, and refurbishes interior landscapes by vacuuming trunks and cabins and shampooing carpets and forgotten carpoolers. While the crew works, drivers can peruse the auto spa’s spacious gift shop or surf free WiFi in the business center, all while tykes hit the kid’s playroom.
