Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit TechWorx AutoHaus LLC.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. TechWorx AutoHaus LLC has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 847-844-0349 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At TechWorx AutoHaus LLC, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at TechWorx AutoHaus LLC to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
Great service. Take my E-Class for service there and does excellent work at a great price.
Xavier and team are awesome! I had my S4 brakes replaced and my wife's C300 service done here, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of work and the price. I had grand plans of doing the S4's brakes myself, bought the parts and never seemed to find the time to get the job done. Benzworks had no issue using the parts that I brought in and never tried to tell me that they weren't going to work properly, or sell me on additional parts or services. I've owned a dozen German cars, and while the dealer always does good work their prices are ridiculously high. This shop does the same quality work at half the price , plus Xavier is an honest and sincere guy. He's a pleasure to do business with - something I can't say about most dealers. I highly recommend Benzworks for any German car services you might need. We have found our new shop!
Brought my car here broke down with an advanced electrical problem. This shop was very clean and punctual, and didn't charge me an arm and a leg for Labor. I have a Scion Xb so shops usually charge waaay too much. They had my problem fixed in just a day at a fair price, I recommend going here to anyone looking for quick work with a fair price.
Did you know in the NW Suburbs alone there are over 1500 mechanic shops in IL. Out of those mechanic shops, there only about 110 that are recognized Mercedes Benz repair facilities. This place is awesome.
I was really impressed. Dealer quality work w/o the cost. Good place to go to get your car repaired.
Friendly, prompt service. Reasonably priced. My personal banker sent me there to get my battery checked and recharged...for free. I had my oil change and tire rotation done at the same time. Much cheaper than my previous service provider.
My car was fixed fast and the information provided was great!
Honest and highly professional people. We were kept well informed of options, procedures, and status. The owner negotiated a better parts deal (after we had signed the estimate) and the difference was given to us, saving us a substantial amount of money.
