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.

Very friendly, helpful mechanic shop. They helped me out when I was stranded in Wisconsin, (I live in Iowa). They have a very thorough, free inspection and let me know everything that was wrong with the car, but also let me know that only one of those things was absolutely necessary to get my car back on the road. Very honest. I highly recommend!
Tyler got me in and done a day ahead of schedule, and then fixed my wifes TPMS on her truck after I came back to get my tires with her truck. Exceptional service and professionalism, and a very clean shop. I'll be back for a alignment soon!
My husband and I have brought both of our vehicles to Silver Lake. We even had an emergency flat that they did overnight service for us! Excellent customer service and a company that cares!
Top notch customer service at Silver Lake Auto in Oconomowoc! They went for a test drive with me when I dropped of my truck to understand the problems I was having, diagnosed the issues properly, had great communication on how they were going to fix them and offered me a courtesy car to drive while they fixed by truck. To put a cherry on top... they cleaned my truck truck inside and out! Thank you!
Silver Lake Auto & Tire has an extremely helpful staff. Clay and his team are very helpful and are very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this team to help you keep your car running very well.
Great auto repair shop. Fair and informative. 5 stars plus!
I’ve used SLAC for various things over the years both personal and professional (I’m a GM for a local collision repair center) and the service has always been great. Just last night I needed my wife’s car towed from Oconomowoc to Watertown and even though it was after hours, Rob and Sean coordinated everything with their driver who happened to be in the area and got it done way quicker than I anticipated. When I called to pay the tow bill, Amanda was just as friendly as she always is. I... Read More
