Pro Tire Service
Nearly three decades have rolled by since Pro Tire Service opened for business. In that time, technology has advanced and cars have gotten smarter—but so have the shop's ASE-certified technicians. The automotive services they offer range from basic maintenance to heavy-duty stuff such as engine overhauls, transmission rebuilds, and journeys into the uncharted territory of on-board computers. Because the DOT now requires all cars to be shod, the technicians fit four-wheelers for tires from BFGoodrich, Michelin, and Uniroyal. And because it's no longer considered humane to turn old batteries into chew toys for teething T-1000s, they recycle them instead. The majority of what Pro Tire Service's people do is backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty, a result of their affiliation with Tech-Net Professional Auto Service.
