Every one of Soundz Good Custom's shops are staffed by In Car Experts (ICE) who typically boast 20-plus years of experience in the field of mobile electronics. That enables them to give sound advice as they guide customers through the showrooms, where navigation systems, security systems, and satellite radios await a new four-wheel home. The stock includes sound systems and all the accessories necessary to play CDs or MP3 players, video systems, and remote starters that allow drivers to get their engines going from the comfort of home or a less expensive car. Soundz Good Custom's technicians, meanwhile, are always on hand to install the new electronics or fit cars with custom wheels. Their team of window tinters boast 10 years of experience, and they offer a lifetime warranty on Johnson Window Tint.
Sound Expo's experienced staffers have been tricking out rides with quality accessories for more than 20 years. They aim to transform cars inside and out with a range of services, from theft-deterring car alarms to UV-filtering window tints. They can also personalize autos with more elaborate services, such as custom LED lights or a super-charged stereo system to blast the Rocky theme each time you successfully parallel park.
The lobby at Ray-A-Motive inspires nostalgia from the moment clients walk in. Above checkerboard tile, a display case towers in the style of a classic Shell gas pump. Despite the retrospective atmosphere, the Automotive Service Excellence–certified, circa-1986 garage traffics in the most modern of automotive care. Oil changes, emissions tests, and repair services keep rides in working order. The team also is experienced in working with RVs, effortlessly fixing malfunctioning powertrains, and figuring out why honking the horn turns on the microwave.
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.
