If you’ve ever lost traction while driving, you’ll remember the feeling when your tires finally catch the road again. That moment teaches a driver the importance of their vehicle’s tires and maintaining solid contact with the surface of the road. In Wisconsin, we drive in some of the harshest weather in the country, but even on a dry, sunny day, you want your tires to have a firm grip while you are driving. Good contact means you can maneuver more effectively and stop more efficiently. At Silver Lake Auto & Tire, we carry a large selection of tires and can recommend the tires that suit your vehicle and the way you drive. Come by our shop today to discuss the kind of ride you are looking for: E Wisconsin Avenue.
Repair or Replace?
Our technicians are often asked if they can “save” a tire. When a customer hears they have a puncture, the next question will be about the extent of the damage. Wherever possible, we will repair a tire if we think we can restore the integrity of the seal so that you drive away on four safe wheels. When we determine whether the tire needs to be fully replaced, we have to have a look at the extent of the damage. Depending on how long you have been driving on a tire with low pressure, the damage may have gotten worse than just the initial puncture. If your tire is not properly inflated, the rim may come into contact with the rubber and begin to wear it down. If that wear is bad enough, it compromises the integrity of the wheel wall. At Silver Lake, we offer customers a free inspection and share our findings so that you can make an informed choice about whether you need a replacement or just a tire repair.
Just the Tires for You!
At Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers, we offer a selection of tires to suit every driver, vehicle, and terrain. If you want performance tires that can keep up with your performance engine, we can recommend tires that will feel like you’re gliding just above the road’s surface. In winter, especially in Waukesha County, we would certainly recommend swapping those out for some snow tires to help you maintain more traction. All-season tires make the most sense for a driver who doesn’t want to swap out tires for the seasons. For the most adventurous drivers, we have all-terrain tires, so you don’t get stuck once you’re off the beaten path! Call us today to make an appointment with one of our technicians to discuss upgrading your tires: (262) 567-0284.

Hear from our Customers
Mike, who checked me in and explained all the repair needs, was very professional and helpful. I received a through computer based update of the status of my car. The work was done completely and quickly. My only complaint was that the driver's seat was left dirty. When I brought it back for the torque check, the technician cleaned the seat. Very pleased - I will return!
Excellent service. I’m so glad I stopped by here after finding it from AAA approved centers. I am settling down in a new area and wanted to find a good auto shop i can trust near my place. This place is beyond 5 stars. I am going back here for my next auto service.
Excellent customer service. Matt kept me informed and went out of his way to get my truck back as soon as possible. I will continue to go back for vehicle service and would recommend Silver Lake to others.
Service writer, Mike, was very considerate when upselling on things for a 10 year old high mileage car. He just sold me what I needed to keep it on the road for another year. Courtesy car provided for multiple overnights. Pictures of everything that needed fixing with explanations.
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.
