Driving without proper alignment costs you money. Not only does flawed alignment decrease gas mileage and tire life, but it also adds stress to your vehicle's steering equipment and structure. Ideally, your vehicle's wheels should run perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Adjusting these wheel angles will bring your vehicle back into proper alignment. We will make the right adjustments so you experience a smoother ride, improved gas mileage, and safer driving.
Batteries & Electrical
Gallup Custom Tinting / Route 66 Discount Tire offers battery replacement or electrical system repairs for the charging and starting systems. These parts include the alternator, starter motor, and wiring.
Our ASE-certified technicians follow Motorist Assurance Program Uniform Inspection Guidelines for your vehicle's braking system to assure safe, smooth driving. We inspect and repair disc brakes, drum brakes, parking brakes, and hydraulic systems. Get your brakes repaired if you hear squealing or grinding when using the breaks, your ABS light turns on, your car pulls to one side when braking, or your brakes feel spongy.
With advanced control systems taking the place of simple engine components, common maintenance services such as tune-ups become less vital. Your vehicle still requires regular services (such as spark plug and filter replacements). You will also need computerized analysis of your vehicle's control computer. Our factory-trained technicians provide these basic services. Bring in your vehicle, we'll check it out, and you can know if the "check engine" is a real problem, or just a sensor/computer issue.

No matter your needs, talk to our professionals and we will give you custom wheel options. These include aluminum alloy or custom steel wheels.
CV and Drive Axles
No matter what you drive, remember that your vehicle's axle must bear the weight of your vehicle (plus any cargo) along with the acceleration forces between you and the ground. When it comes to axle inspection, we are your source for professional, knowledgeable service. Bring your car to us and rest assured that the equipment that carries you and your family is safe and secure. Go out to a large space (such as a parking lot), and slowly drive in tight circles. If you hear a clicking or cracking noise, you have a worn joint, and it must be repaired immediately.
The exhaust system controls noise and funnels exhaust fumes away from passengers. It also converts pollutants into less harmful byproducts, reduces engine noise, and directs exhaust gases to heat air and fuel before the fuel goes into the engine's cylinders. We service and repair the pipes, manifold, catalytic converter, muffler, resonator, and tail pipe.

Ensure maximum miles without major break-downs with routine car maintenance at 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Scheduled maintenance allows us to do a point-by-point vehicle inspection, tune-up (spark plugs, filters, etc.), oil change, and transmission maintenance. Depending on your miles and the vehicle, we may change belts, re-time your vehicle, and test the battery.
Suspension, Shocks, and Struts
Your car's suspension and steering system allows your wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in handling deterioration and accelerated tire wear. Also, your vehicle's alignment affects the condition of the suspension and steering systems. We repair control arms, ball joints, springs, shock absorbers, and struts.
An improperly repaired tire may fail when driven at high speed causing loss of vehicle control. Flat or damaged tires need to be repaired by qualified personnel. Proper tire repair is critical and any puncture or injury to a tire will affect its performance. Call or email us to repair or replace your damaged, punctured or leaky tires.
Save money with our tire retreading system. Simply put, we select and inspect worn tires and give them new treads. Besides the money you save, you help the environment by recycling your tires. For instance, some tires can be retreaded up to ten times. Before a tire can be retreaded, it must pass careful inspection to ensure the tire's casing can be reused. This rigorous inspection guarantees only the best used tires are retreaded. After inspection, we mechanically buffer the approved tires to the correct radius and diameter. Following the buffer, we attach the new tread to the tire through time, heat, pressure, and vulcanization. We then inspect the retreaded tires a second time, and finally, we trim and paint them for you.
The front tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle accelerate, steer, and help brake your vehicle. Front tires tend to wear down faster than rear tires. Typically rear wheel tires last twice as long as front wheel tires. Ideally, we recommend you replace all four tires at the same time. Rotating your tires helps ensure even wearing for all your tires. Contact our staff to get your tires rotated.
Every two years or 30,000 miles, you should get a tune up. This includes fuel filter replacement, spark plugs and wire replacement, distributor cap and rotor replacement, ignition system and timing, valve and gasket adjustments, belts inspection, fluid top offs, oil change, air fulter replacement, and battery service.
Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a beautiful, perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights on the opposite side of the "heavy spot"—the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.
We can help restore your wheels to their factory condition or help you create a customized look to fit your style. Wheel refinishing is the art of re-engineering the look of your wheels. We perform all types of refinishing, from simple painting to polishing.
