TIRES

Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.

We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.


Used Tires
Walker Auto Service LLC also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Walker Auto Service LLC selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.

Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Walker Auto Service LLC, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.

Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Walker Auto Service LLC.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Walker Auto Service LLC has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 616-453-3877 if you have questions, or schedule an appointment so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Walker Auto Service LLC, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Walker Auto Service LLC to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

Testimonials

  • I don't even live in the area anymore and I make sure anytime I have a car giving me issues, I get it taken to Walker Auto. Over the last eight years, I have brought six different cars in for work, and they have been very knowledgeable about all of them. They're not pushy, they're very matter-of-fact, fast, and professional.

  • Its finally nice to take my car somewhere thats honest. Highly professional. I am recommending to all my friends. They were able to fix my car the same day and were less expensive than two other shops. Much appreciated.
    -Brad V.

  • I live 54 miles away and needed my alternator fixed ASAP so I could get back home. I called all over GR first at the bigger service shops and NO ONE could get me in for a week or two, I thought all was lost. I searched one more time in walker for service shops and these wonder people came up on Google. As a final attempt I called in tears and told them about the situation and right away they had me bring my car down and fix it. If it wasn't for these awesome men I would be stranded still. :) :) :) :) I have now found my new service shop for my car.
