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.

Hear from our Customers
Just had my Audi serviced at Silver Lake and wanted to share my experience. Kezra took my appointment for an oil leak I had and was able to schedule me in for repairs and repair my car in less than a week! Her customer service, attention to detail and responsiveness is next level. Kudos to Kezra and the team down at Silver Lake! I will be coming back for any future services needed on my vehicles.
It’s been a few years, thankfully, since we had to do any major work to either of our vehicles. That said- I thought the brake lines work we needed was a bit expensive, However, we needed the vehicle towed there at the end of on day, and they fit us in for the inspection the next morning. A courtesy call that afternoon for the work I needed, plus a full recommendation list of a few items I should address soon for proper upkeep and maintenance; all complete with pictures on a website format...

Had a flat tire by silver lake auto and tire, the guys helped inflate it and inspected it in their shop, in less than 30 minutes they had it repaired and I was ready to go. Great service! Totally recommended
A+ absolutely fantastic. Thank you for the excellent service. This is the best automotive shop I’ve ever had the pleasure of taking my vehicle to. The people here are honest, professional, courteous, thorough, go above and beyond to be accommodating, and do excellent work. I highly recommend using this shop for your automotive needs. Austin and Amanda at the front desk provided top notch customer service, which is rare these days.
I just want to say "Thank You" !!!!! I am a caregiver for an elderly woman, and they were so VERY helpful. They were able to pick me up and schedule appointments during my working hours. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I would recommend them to everyone.
Been going for years great service every time
We had to use a tow service to remove one of cars to fix the engine from some wire chewing squirrels! Tow truck went above and beyond accommodating us! Super happy with the whole experience.
Thank you, Tyler and the rest of the team for going above and beyond while dealing with a very frustrating warranty issue on our Jeep Grand Cherokee. The team did everything in their power to give us a "best case scenario", and I am really impressed and happy with the level of service we were provided.
Very professional and service was great. Went in for a wheel alignment and service met my expectation
