    Vehicle Tips

    Always use a detergent designed specifically for car washing. Don't use common dish washing detergent which is too strong and will remove the wax.

    Always keep a good coat of wax or paint sealant on your car.

    Make a habit of detailing your car. Detail your car regularly and inspect the finish.

    Always use a good wax with a high Carnauba content.

    You are much better off to wax your car more frequently than to try to apply a heavy coat of wax.

    If you are involved in an accident don't make any public statements about who is at fault.

    Keep a disposable camera with a flash in your glove box in the event you have an accident. Then take LOTS of pictures!

    Be sure to remove sand and salt spray as soon as possible from your car to protect your car's finish.

    Check tire inflation at least once a month. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency.

    A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    For maximum fuel economy, stay below 60 mph.

    Don't forget to check the tire pressure of your spare tire!

    Buying a fuel with a higher octane than your car requires will not boost performance.

    Unlike A/C in the summer, you can run the car's heater as much as you want in the winter without effecting gas mileage.

    What Our Customers

    Are Saying

    This is the best place to take my car if it is broken or in need of repair. Hank, Rick, and the team at Advance Tire are the bomb! Love you guys. Thank you for always treating me well and getting me back on the road quickly. I am a relatively new driver and have already hit my share of potholes around Boston. I will continue to be a customer and can't recommend this place enough to everyone I know. The pricing and customer service can't be beat. Don't waste time looking around for other garages, this is the only place to go.

    This place rocks. It is so rare to find an honest auto repair place. I have been coming here for many years and is now the first place I go for my and my wife's car. This place is a gem.

    Excellent mechanic service - great customer service from the front desk. Never gave me a hard time. The prices are reasonable, not the most expensive, and not the cheapest. Its fair work for fair pay.

    Good, trustworthy company. Had four tires changed with them. Not the cheapest but competitive pricing.

    HANDS DOWN THE BEST AROUND. Finding a car repair shop you can trust is not easy. These guys check all the boxes: super knowledgeable, skilled, accommodating, honest, and most important, they care. If you're looking for a new repair shop, look no further. If you already have one, switch.

    Always friendly, helpful with good quality and excellent work, this place was recommended to me by Good News Garage. They haven't disappointed and like Good News, they don't use scare tactics or talk down to women.

    Today was my first visit. They're quick, efficient, and polite. The price was reasonable as well. What's not to love? Next time my car needs anything, I know where to go.
