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
I wish I was able to give Silver Lake Auto 10 stars because the customer care I received was outstanding!!! Over the last few months I have been hearing from mutual friends and business owners how pleased they were with the services and care they had received from Silver Lake Auto, so I decided to try them out. I was beyond impressed with the welcoming service team, detailed communication, the cleanliness and comfort of the waiting area, the added touch of giving my vehicle back to me washed ... Read More
Had my front wheel bearings replaced and a few other things. This was my first visit ever to Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers. The service and communications were the best. Free loaner car while mine was being repaired. I am so happy with the work done. The car I started to dislike is now fixed and wonderful! I know that I have found an auto repair center that I will be returning to.
Excellent experience. The waiting area is clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My car was completed in a timely manor. And, the communication was great. I will definitely use them again.
Silver Lake Auto is close to my work and I knew my boss had used them often. I had air continuously leaking from a tire and suspected I had a nail or puncture. They were able to get me in the same day and make the repair. I got a free car wash and vacuum out or the small and affordable fix. All the men were nice, it was taken care of very quickly, and I was impressed with the overall thoroughness they provided, including photos and updates on other parts of the car so I have the records. I ex... Read More
Reliable and honest. These guys are your old school auto shop, right to the point and honest about everything, with great estimates. Shout out to Seth Kline for helping graciously with setting an appointment around a busy holiday, and with getting work done around a busy schedule. 10/10
In-N-Out no problems only thing was kind of weird. Was a bird flying in the store other than that good service. Hello to me when I came in and have a great day when I left out.
As always, everyone there did a great job taking care of my vehicle. Got a new set of Blizzak's for the car my wife drives in the winter. Great program for storing our summer tires too!
Both mine and my husband’s car were in need of repair and we had a great experience with Silver Lake! Seth was our advisor and was very honest about the whole process and kept us informed. He even went out of his way to pick us up in order for us not to make multiple trips to pick up our cars. We were very happy with how quick they got us in and our cars fixed. Thank you so much!
Ben, the sales rep, was super friendly every time we spoke. The car was ready when they said it would be and they remained open during a snow storm to take care of their customers (including me). Would definitely return when I need tire service!
I had a great experience at Silver Lake. The employees were very responsive and quick to help. I will be returning for any further car needs! They were able to complete the repair quickly which was greatly appreciated!
