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.
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.
Fast washes, friendly service, and eco-friendly initiatives converge at Cobblestone Auto Spa. Instead of letting sudsy water seep back into the environment, Cobblestone Auto Spa drains it into a sewage system that strips it of any toxins before it's re-released. Precise computer controllers allow the spa's mechanical washing system to cleanse rides with less water and electricity, and Cobblestone's precise staffers man onsite detailing, express-lube, and windshield-repair centers. Multiple locations further convenience customers when paired with unlimited wash plans, which bedeck windshields with a radio-frequency identification sticker that automatically activates the car wash and any chosen upgrades such as wax protection or an underbelly tickle.
With a full-course selection of preventative scans and treatments, Sands Chevrolet's diagnostic diviners sniff out problem spots in roadsters of all stripes. Sands' standard oil change swaps out winded sludge for fluid with a fresh set of legs, while newly installed filters flex bouncer muscles, keeping engine clubs exclusive by denying crashers such as friction-causing contaminants, meltdown-minded debris, and leisure suit-clad sacks of sugar.
At TNT Car Wash and Quick Lube, a team of mechanics and cleaners beautifies vehicles inside and out with oil changes, tune-ups, and fluid replacements, as well as an impressive menu of interior and exterior detailing services. During meticulous detailing projects for cars, RVs, and boats, skilled technicians employ trusted, high-grade products and chemicals, rather than synthetic waxes and baths of corrosive acid. Detailers coat auto bodies in protective sheaths of carnauba wax and Rain-X, and they enhance the sheen of leather seats with applications of conditioner.
Cruising down America's highways and waterways is thrilling, but everyone needs a break from life on the road now and then. That's where the team at Discount RV and Boat Storage steps in. The company's enormous spaces, both covered and uncovered, start at 40' x 11' and ensconce motor vehicles during their hiatus from a summer of fun or a winter of hunting down decathletes who came out of hibernation too early. Many of the spaces can be configured to be pull-through to make storage easy. Although vehicles are protected by a seven-foot-high brick wall topped by razor wire, drivers can visit them 24 hours a day via the lot's computer-controlled gate.
