Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
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.
Stewart's VIP Wash revamps your ragged ride inside and out by running it through a gauntlet of tough-love cleaners and hand-worked wool wash mitts. The body gets soaked, spray waxed, de-bugged, conditioned, cleaned, and detailed while the interior receives a dashboard conditioning, full vacuuming, window polishing, and finishing fragrance of your choice. The polymer paint sealant service, meanwhile, provides a powerful means of increasing water-wickability over the long haul. Designed to repel naturally occurring elements such as rain, dust, and gangs of mohawked Australian bikers, the paint sealant will protect the vehicle, the vehicle's value, and the value of driving a vehicle shiny enough to reflect the light from roadside ant circuses. For visual testimonials of Stewart's automotive makeovers, check out the before-and-after gallery online.
