The skilled techs at The Tire Giant of Roseville and The Tire Giant of Sterling Heights service tires, engines, and internal systems beneath the prestigious banner of ASE certification. Name-brand tires from Cooper and Kelly replace vehicles' lopsided gaits with a precision capable of convincing yellow lines that they've been painted crookedly. Skilled technicians also service internal operations, hoisting autos of all makes, models, and origins onto full-service bays for repairs and maintenance. From sputtering engines to faulty brakes to climate-control systems with a bad source of weather updates, the versatile techs restore vehicles to working states and send them forth with steady tires and retooled performance.

Nearby, water hisses against undercarriages and bodies and vacuums purr across upholstery as the crew details rides.

Owner and operator Mike Harler opened Harler’s Auto Repair shop in 2001 as a way of combining his multifaceted skills in the auto industry he had developed over more than 17 years. Since 1990, Mike has apprenticed at car dealerships where he learned the importance of customer satisfaction and a gentle bedside manner through hands-on experience tending to vehicles at both service stations and independent repair shops.
Mike leads by example, ensuring his team of automotive experts demonstrates this same combination of customer service and automotive expertise in the shop’s full gamut of maintenance and repair services. The courteous staff takes time to answer questions and concerns, discussing with drivers the reason behind repairs and whether cars traveling at light speed can turn on their blinkers.
