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.

My car was down for over two weeks and I called silver lake originally but decided to take my car somewhere else unfortunately on my part regarding my alternator after spending over $700 my truck was still not fixed nor running.

This is the most professional, friendly and clean automotive place I have ever seen and appreci... Read More
I needed my vehicle repaired within 2 days for a road trip. Silver Lake got it in, inspected and repaired in about 1 day. Fixed all of my issues and after 1,200 miles its running great!
I highly recommend this business and the manager Josh was very professional and Nice. They Kept me up to date on what problems they found and provided me with a detailed report with pictures showing the problem areas. They also have loaner cars at no charge which definitely helps lower the stress level when it comes to needing to get to work or around town.
Going to a mechanic is always scary when something is wrong with your vehicle and you have minimal knowledge about them. Silver Lake Auto was very courteous and thorough, complete with pictures. They laid out what needed to be done immediately and what can wait in "non-mechanic" terms. They also let us use a courtesy vehicle for a day so I didn't have the hassle of having to shuttle during business hours as well as have transportation to work the next day. They made that process easy and ... Read More

I originally called Silver Lake Auto & Tire when I tried to start my car one day after work and something just wasn’t right. It was idling really high and frankly, I was afraid to drive it. So, like any other person who may know nothing about cars, I googled the nearest place with the best reputation and, their name came up. And I’m so glad it did. I had them tow my car to their shop that evening and waited nervously the next day to hear back. The next morning, I was messaged all the ... Read More
I have a high mileage 14 year old luxury SUV. The body is in great shape, interior is flawless. The check engine light came on. I feared the worst. Although it was not inexpensive, they were very honest and professional. Gave me the option to have the repairs or not. No high pressure and they were spot on with their diagnosis and cost was exactly what tjey quoted. It was nice to have the courtesy car too. Great customer service. I will definitely return if I have service needs in the... Read More
