Keep your vehicle running smoothly with an oil change
Any good car mechanic can take care of oil changes, and that’s certainly the case for the team here at Martin Tire Company. Depending on your situation, our auto repair shop offers one of three possible types of car oil changes. Our good value conventional oil change will provide exceptional new oil at the lowest upfront cost.

Finally, our Synpower full synthetic oil change will improve your car’s fuel efficiency and allow you to drive it further between oil changes.
Put the brakes on safety risks
You can’t have a reliable vehicle without a braking system that’s operating the way it should. Our technicians recommend taking your car to one of our shops every year for a brake inspection.

We can fix car problems before you notice them
Some car owners ignore their vehicle’s well-being until disaster strikes. However, taking your car in for a regular service can help you avoid serious issues later. When you visit your nearest Martin Tire Company shop for a tune-up, our expert technicians will look for signs of engine trouble. While we’re at it, we’ll replace any parts that are almost worn out. If it’s been 30,000 miles or more since your last tune-up, it’s time to ask for this vital service again.
High-quality products and services at low prices
We believe that the services of a great auto mechanic shouldn’t put a strain on your finances. Therefore, we’re proud to offer all kinds of auto repair coupons to our customers for our tires and automotive services. Better still, if you find a tire advertised by a local supplier for less within 30 days of your purchase, Martin Tire Company will refund you the price difference. Why buy anywhere else?
If getting the lowest prices, the most extensive selection, and professional service aren’t enough, we offer a 30-day free trial period! Let’s say you aren’t satisfied with your purchase for any reason. In that case, you may return any set of four passenger or light truck tires within 30 days or 500 miles of purchase and receive a full refund. Your refund will be good towards purchasing another set of tires from Martin Tire Company.

To help our customers manage their finances, we’ve introduced an exclusive Martin Tire Company credit card. With this card, you can pay for an auto service and tires while enjoying low monthly repayments, zero annual fees, and deferred interest (if paid in full within six months).

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my car’s warranty be affected if I have someone other than my car dealer do
That is a common misconception, but it’s no cause for concern. As the owner of your vehicle, you have the legal right to take your car in for service to a car repair shop of your choice—not just your dealership. Additionally, your dealer cannot refuse to provide warranty coverage if you’ve taken your vehicle somewhere else for automotive repair. That means you can take your car to Martin Tire Company for excellent service at low prices, all without the fear of causing problems later on!
Can I check my own oil?
Understanding how to check your oil is a skill that every driver should have. Try to regularly check your car’s oil level between regular oil changes. In that case, you can avoid the consequences of having a lower oil level than you expect. Even if you haven’t taken automotive maintenance seriously in the past, this process is as simple as it gets:
- Begin by parking your car on a flat, level surface.
- Let the engine cool down.
- Find the oil dipstick—which usually looks like a yellow ring—near the oil tank.
- Remove the dipstick and wipe it down with a cloth or rag.
- Insert the dipstick all the way back into its housing tube and remove it again.
- Look at the bottom end of the dipstick now covered in oil. Your oil level will fall between two cross hatched markings on the dipstick, or the letters “L” and “F” (for “low” and “full,” respectively). If your oil level is near the bottom marking, it’s time for an oil change.
What is a good schedule for oil changes?
It’s impossible to ignore the role regular oil changes play in extending your car’s lifespan and helping it run as effectively as possible. One rule of thumb that could help you determine an oil change schedule that works for you is that oil changes should take place at least every 3,000 miles or three months. However, you may need an oil change more often than this if you regularly drive in extreme weather (including high heat), or if the vehicle is older.
How often do my brakes need service?
Naturally, brakes are one of the most crucial components of any vehicle. Because of this, you can’t afford to ignore brake service. Our technicians recommend having your brakes checked every 6,000 miles or six months. Additionally, set up an appointment if you notice any of these symptoms of brake problems:
- Brake pedal vibrates while braking.
- Vehicle pulls to one side while braking.
- Additional distance is needed when coming to a full stop.
- Brake pedal has a lower amount of resistance when pressed.
- Puddles of yellow brake fluid appear under your vehicle when parked.
- Braking makes a sound such as grinding, thumping, or squeaking.
The best way to respond to these signs is by scheduling an appointment at Martin Tire Company. Our crew will inspect your car’s braking and hydraulic systems, resurface your rotors or drums, replace your brake pads or shoes, and repack your wheel bearings if needed.
When should I get a tune-up?
If you’ve been following the same tune-up schedule for decades now, it’s time for an update. Today’s vehicles are controlled by a sophisticated computer system, so it’s a good idea to follow your manufacturer’s recommendations. Otherwise, most cars should get a tune-up at least once every 30,000 miles. As part of your tune-up, we’ll replace your air and gas filters, install new spark plugs, top off your fluids, and much more.
Which services do you include with preventative maintenance?
Getting regular car repair will keep your automotive costs lower in the long run while improving your vehicle’s overall condition and performance. Though the exact services our team provides for your car’s preventative maintenance will vary based on your car’s needs, they may include any or all of the following:
- Flushing transmission fluid.
- Flushing power steering fluid.
- Tightening nuts and bolts.
- Replacing brake pads.
- Flushing brake fluid.
- Replacing air filters.
- Inspecting tires.
- Refilling windshield washer fluid.
- Checking lights.
- Aligning wheels.
- Balancing/rotating tires.
- Replacing fuel filter.
- Replacing engine oil and oil filters.
What are the benefits of replacing belts and hoses?
Every time you drive, your belts and hoses are subjected to stress. Since they’re dealing with engine vibrations, heat, and other forces, these components will leak, fray, or crack at some point if they are not replaced. To give your belts and hoses the care they need, take them to your nearest Martin Tire Company location for a thorough inspection.
What should I do when my “check engine” light turns on?
A “check engine” indicator isn’t always a sign of an emergency, but it is something you should take seriously. This light activates when your car’s computer system has picked up on a problem that needs professional attention, whether it’s something relatively routine or a much larger issue. When you take your vehicle to Martin Tire Company, we’ll connect it to our diagnostic system to determine what’s going on and any issues we can repair for you.
When should I have my cooling system inspected?
Your car’s cooling system is responsible for keeping the temperature within your vehicle low, allowing engine components to function without running the risk of overheating. In order to keep this crucial system working correctly, it’s ideal to have your coolant system and antifreeze flushed every 30,000–50,000 miles or every two years. Our technicians will inspect your cooling system for signs of damage that may require additional work to fix. To ensure your coolant level is optimal in-between coolant flushing services, we’ll check the level whenever you come in for an oil change.
Do you price match other car repair shops in the local area?
The crew at Martin Tire Company take customer value seriously. That means we’ll be happy to meet the prices of other tire businesses in the area.
What can indicate that my tires need to be replaced?
If you haven’t paid close attention lately to the state of your tires, you’ll want to start checking your tires regularly for signs of damage. Keep an eye out for uneven tread wear, a “sawtooth” appearance on the outer edges of treads, foreign objects embedded in tires, and any other obvious warning signs. If you find anything concerning, or you’re not sure whether your tires need replacement or not, visit your local Martin Tire Company location for assistance.
What should I know about automotive maintenance?
Taking your car into a trustworthy local shop is a significant part of being a responsible vehicle owner. However, it’s also good to have some basic car maintenance knowledge between those visits. That way, you’ll keep your car in good condition while potentially lessening the need for professional attention. To help our customers stay informed, Martin Tire Company regularly shares articles featuring essential car care tips.
Do you offer any options to help with automotive repair costs?
At Martin Tire Company, we constantly offer a selection of coupons for car maintenance and tires, and post them on our website. If you see a coupon you can use, be sure to take advantage of it ASAP!
Furthermore, we provide a special credit card for our customers. This card comes with all kinds of benefits, including no annual fee, deferred interest (when paid in full within six months), and affordable monthly payments.
