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 - including trusted brands like Michelin and BFGoodrich - 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.

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
