Like dogs, cars know when they’re getting a treat, which is why they rev their engines when someone mentions the m-e-c-h-a-n-i-c. Cater to your coach with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a tire alignment at Gunner Tire, valid at two locations (a $69.99 value).
The expert auto aficionados at Gunner Tire diagnose wheel malfunction and restore a car’s tires to proper working order—all within one visit. Unless the driver is known to listen to veritably prodigious beats, a car that consistently leans to one side while driving may benefit from a tire alignment. Knowledgeable technicians assess the severity of the dilemma and, if need be, adjust the wheels in order to augment the car’s steering and prevent unnecessary tire degradation. Appointments can be scheduled on the website to ensure that the service is especially expeditious.
With black-and-white checkerboard floors, Gunner Tire feels less like a grungy repair shop and more like a 1960s-era diner. The retro motif welcomes all manner of patrons, even those who only tune into Car Talk and Top Gear for the gags. Wireless Internet and coffee are made available in the waiting room. While not included with today’s Groupon, Gunner Tire keeps tires of many major brands and types in stock so as to facilitate a speedy customer experience.
Working from two locations in Jacksonville, Gunner Tire's certified technicians help cars reach their maximum mileage with a range of maintenance and repair services. After performing free safety inspections, the team draws from a stockroom of top-brand tires by Michelin, Falken, and Cooper to outfit cars with the best spinners in every size. They confiscate dirty oil and replace it with standard or Mobile 1 premium fluids, and toss away dingy filters wrought with engine-clogging debris. While cars receive service, customers can lounge in shop's diner-like atmosphere, where black-and-white checkerboard floors and vintage red walls box in a coffee bar and fresh air saturated with complimentary WiFi.
