Tire Rotation, Balancing & Replacement
We will make a complete inspection of your tires for wear, balance, maintenance, tread depth, alignment or steering and suspension problems. If neccessary, we can replace or repair your tires, wheels and rims, valve stem, and perform wheel balancing.
Tire Rotation - Rotating your tires can be beneficial in several ways. When done at the recommended times, it can preserve balanced handling and traction and even out tire wear. Tire rotation can even provide performance advantages. Tire rotation helps even out tire wear by allowing each tire to serve in as many of the vehicle’s wheel positions as possible.
Tire Balance - Balanced tires can be the difference between a good or bad driving experience. Some cars are more sensitive to an out of balance tire than others, but no one is happy with a vibration. An out of balance tire can adversely affect ride quality, shorten the life of your tires, bearings, shocks and other suspension components. If you have a vibration that is dependent on speed, and usually becomes noticeable around 40-45 mph and increases as your speed increases, then you need to have your tires balanced..
Tire Replacement - You could consider replacing tires when their tread depth reaches 4/32” of an inch and definitely replace them if the tread is equal to or less than 2/32” of an inch. When your tires are worn to the point that they need to be replaced, we have all the expertise to get your vehicle outfitted with the proper tires and get you down the road safely.
No one likes to see their car or truck’s check engine light come on, but that pesky little dashboard light can be important in preventing the development of more serious car problems. If your check engine light comes on, call Fred's Service Center at 920-326-2052. A professional diagnostic service makes sure that the proper steps are taken to keep your car or truck running top-notch.
Brakes are one of the most important safety features on any vehicle. When you’re faced with sudden traffic changes, inclement weather, or a deer in the road, your brake performance can make the difference between avoiding danger and having an accident. If your brakes are squeaky or sounds like they are rubbing or scraping, take your vehicle to a brake shop for an examination or repair. Call Fred's Service Center at 920-326-2052 today, to help save yourself the agony of personal injuries, vehicular damage, and the other potential consequences of unreliable brakes. A little prevention can make a big difference!

Exhaust / Muffler Repair
Does your muffler scrape on the road under your car? Does the everybody cover their ears when you drive down the road? These are just two of the signs that your vehicle may require professional attention from Fred's Service Center. Our muffler repair services include work on cars, trucks, and SUVs. Every exhaust repair performed at Fred's Service Center is completed with the highest quality tools, techniques, and materials available.
Does it feel like you’re driving down a rough road even when you’re on a new fresh paved highway? Or have you noticed that your car or truck seems to handle worse than it did before? If your car or truck isn’t giving you the smooth ride and full control that it used to, your suspension might be wearing out. A vehicle’s suspension is composed of several different parts, such as ball joints, springs, sway bars, shocks and struts. All of these parts play a different role in supporting the rest of the car, helping the vehicle keep in constant contact with the road while providing a comfortable ride for the people inside the vehicle. Sometimes all it takes it one really nasty pothole to throw your suspension or alignment out of whack. No matter what the reason for the problem, Fred's Service Center, is ready to help you. We can diagnose the cause of your suspension problems and then complete repairs to restore comfort and safety to your car or truck. If you're experiencing issues with your suspension, contact us today at 920-326-2052 for your free estimate or stop by our Marblehead auto repair shop.
Some signs that your vehicle requires suspension repairs include:
- Dipping of the car’s nose
- Excessive bouncing, even on relatively even roads
- Uneven wear patterns on your tires
- Swaying around corners
- Bottoming out
A car or truck’s transmission has several purposes, including supplying the wheels with the appropriate amount of power, converting engine power into torque, and allowing the vehicle to shift through the gears and from forward to reverse. Because the transmission plays such a major role in vehicle operations, a car or truck in need of transmission repairs could be on the close to some very serious problems. If you’re worried about your transmission or have noticed some odd behavior from your vehicle and are unsure of its source, contact Fred's Service Center today at 920-326-2052 to set up an appointment.
Some signs that your vehicle requires transmission repair are:
- Strange sounds when shifting
- Jarring, shaking, or jerkiness when shifting
- Slow transition into the next gear
- Lack of response when trying to shift
- Vehicle speed not matching engine speed
- Check engine light is on
- Fluid pudding in driveway, especially dark puddles that smell “burnt”
