Proper and timely tire care is essential in keeping your tires durable and reliable. Not only do they provide the necessary traction and stability for your travels, but they also support the weight of your vehicle. Tires continuously experience wear and, on occasion, damage from the road, which means they will eventually need to be replaced. Here at Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers in Hartland, Wisconsin, we have your needs covered with tire sales.
When Do I Need New Tires?
The interval for when a vehicle needs new tires isn’t one-size-fits-all. Thanks to routine maintenance efforts on your part, such as tire rotations, tire balances, and air pressurization adjustments, you can extend the life of your tires significantly. However, there will come a time where you need new tires entirely. Generally, tires last between five and six years. Some can last longer if in good condition, but because rubber degrades over time, they should be replaced before the 10-year mark for quality reasons. It’s recommended to replace your tires if the tread depth dips below 2/32 of an inch. Many tires feature a treadwear indicator to help you visually detect if the tread is too low—these will become visible once your tire has worn down to that point. Uneven tread wear, damage (that can’t be remedied), and vibration are additional indicators you may need to seek out our tire sales.

The technicians repaired a leak in my tire from a screw quickly and efficiently. The service staff was pleasant and personable throughout.
I would like to thank the tow truck driver from Silver Lake Auto who stopped to help me with my flat tire. He was concerned for my safety so he stopped and was able to quickly change my tire and get me on my way. Thank you so much.
Brought my vehicle in for emissions testing. There were 2 places closer but this place had the highest Google review so I tried there first. I was not disappointed. Great service, friendly and in and out in 10 minutes. Needed to get my oil changed on our plug-in hybrid. Once again great service and quality work. Thanks to Silver Lake Auto and Tire Centers and Google reviews for pointing me in the right direction. Wonderful work on both counts.
Very professional, very thorough, honest. I can not stress this part enough. Had 2 vehicles done this week. One of them we were told by someone else it needed a new alternator and ignition switch. Took to Silver Lake, only needed a battery charge. Same vehicle now 4 days later is still going good, without a single issue. They send you updates with the pictures of your vehicle and the devices with the readings for you to see too. This is the place to go and I will not go elsewhere, and will ... Read More
I got a nail in my tire and found myself a few miles away from this place. I called them, they got me in immediately, and fixed my tire on the spot. I was in and out within 45 minutes. Fantastic customer service and friendly staff. I will definitely be back in the future should I need anything else. A+
I had a great first experience with Silver Lake when I used them for the first time ever to replace a leaking water pump. Josh was great. Their communications (texts, emails, phone calls, detailed estimate) were outstanding and something I was not used to getting from other auto service shops. I plan to buy new tires from them next month. And I live within walking distance of them. I feel like I've found a new friend!
First time using Silver Lake Auto had emergency and lost all power. Had SUV towed to them. They were helpful and provided detailed report on repairs needed. They did an awesome job on repairs and SUV running like new. Highly recommend and working with Chris was great.
Clean shop. Great initial service. Offered to drive me home after they get a look at my car on Thursday. They also perform emissions tests for free, which is nice. Will follow up after job is done.and experience is complete. So far so good UPDATE: Silver Lake worked hard and figured our what the problem with my car was. It wasn't something a simple diagnostic could identify. Done and repaired. Car drives great! These folks get a👍.
Came here for a tire rotation and wheel alignment on my Tesla Model S and was very happy with the result. The pricing seemed reasonable (everything is getting more expensive, now that shops have to do extra calibration for driver-assistance features), the service took about an hour less time than they told me to expect, and most importantly...they didn't change my seat presets. Everyone I talked to was very friendly and very up front about what they would be doing and how much it would cost. ... Read More
This was the best experience I have ever had dealing with car issues, hands down! We have a conversion mini van that is not easily towed and one call to Silver Lake Auto in New Berlin and they came to the rescue and went above and beyond. They were very communicative and did excellent work. I will definitely come here for all future needs. Would highly recommend, plus the cookies were delicious.
