Pro-Automotive & Tire
Pro-Automotive & Tire has been run by the same family since 1982. Donna and Mitch Jaber Jr. and their son Garry have created a repair facility staffed by ASE-certified technicians and stocked with a large inventory of tires from many different manufacturers. The technicians here address myriad automotive issues, from maintenance services such as oil changes and tune-ups, to small- and large-scale repairs, including brake service, transmission work, and engine repairs. Services include a free nationwide warranty as well, and discounts are available for military personnel, students, and AAA members. The tire shop, meanwhile, carries brands such as Cooper, and Continental, and staffs techs who can install new tires so the car drives straight and smooth and doesn't get blisters.
