Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands, all 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 500 locations, spanning 21 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 free 22-point safety inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Tire Liquidators carries tires from brands including Michelin, BFGoodrich, and Uniroyal and staffs specialists to install and balance them. They don’t stop there, though; indeed these experts service many components of the vehicle, from engines in need of new oil and filters to shocks, struts, and brakes. But it's the clients who are always the focus, as evidenced by affordable roadside assistance plans and a customer-rewards system.

The family behind Fletcher's Tire & Auto Service opened their first shop more than four decades ago. Today, they operate more than 30 locations scattered throughout Arizona, where they work to provide automobiles and their owners with expert repairs and preventive maintenance. Technicians keep cars safely running, stopping, and creeping slowly past ex-girlfriends' houses with regular maintenance services such as oil changes, alignments, and air filter replacement. Oil changes come with a battery test and a tire rotation to ensure that tires wear evenly, and most services are backed by warranties that start at 12 months and 12,000 miles. More than 15 brands of tires get paired with appropriate chariots thanks to a convenient online tire-size guide, and computerized alignment services help improve gas mileage and safety.
