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.

They were able to put a patch on my tire instead of replacing it, which saved me a lot of money. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable, which I appreciate a lot. And they gave me some delicious chocolate chip cookies when I picked up my car! 10/10
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
This was the first time using this business and I was impressed. They gave me a detailed lay out with pictures as to what needed to be fixed, ranked from high priority to low priority. They let me decided what I wanted to be done. No pushy salesman. I would highly recommend.
I took our Subaru in for new tires and brakes. Scheduling was simple. I received a call from Evan the morning of the appointment, verifying the type of tires I wanted, before I even dropped the car off. Their online inspection report was great, as I could look over their findings, and recommended maintenance items before speaking with the shop. I received a few calls throughout the day with status updates and was able to pick the car up the same day. Bonus - their military discount saved me s... Read More
I had tires shipped to Silver Lake from Tire Rack for mounting, balancing and installation on a 2005 Chevy Express AWD. The appointment was made promptly, the work was performed without any issues and they did not attempt to up-sell additional services. That is a big win for me! They did exactly what I asked for with no hassle. Brilliant! I will use their services in the future.
I've always had a great experience taking my vehicles here. They are honest, do great work and very professional. I also enjoy that they have courtesy cars. The nearby dealerships make you rent from their car rental business.
My car was towed to this AAA approved center. I experienced a friendly, competent, courteous, and professional staff from the lady at the desk to the technicians and manager. The diagnosis and subsequent service were right on. They also solved a nonworking radio, which my car dealership said would cost me a significant amount to fix. Silver Lake quickly diagnosed the problem and solved the issue at no additional cost.. I am enjoying my radio and the extra money I saved by their excellent ... Read More
I called several other places that gave me very extended lead times to fix a nail in my tire. When I called Silver Lake they got me in first thing the next morning. Their communication is excellent and the repair was done on time. Customer service was excellent and I will happily recommend them and use them again.
Can't say enough great things about Silver Lake Auto! Best experience I've had at an auto shop. The manager, Matt and the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and the service was timely, efficient and thorough. I was at my wits end with my car, taking it from place to place trying to solve an ongoing issue that no one seemed to be able to diagnose. They were able to get me in and provide me with a detailed diagnostic report on my car, which included things that needed immediate atten... Read More
Front brakes, class IV hitch, and some other repairs/items. They were awesome, super professional. Clean. On time. Oh yeah, and everything works. Chris was awesome to work with. The whole team has been. They help each other and have each other's back when someone is busy.
