With winter here, Auto Tech, the County’s Tire and Service Authority, is offering free winter weather safety inspections to make sure drivers have the right tires and winter-ready vehicles.


“It’s incredibly important to pay attention to the condition of your tires”, says Auto Tech President Mike Miculinich. “Everything from tread depth to tire pressure plays a role in the effectiveness of your tires handling slick and snowy roads.”


Winter tires, Miculinich stated, drastically improves the overall performance of one’s vehicle, yet he stresses that in order to really be prepared for the winter, drivers should always pay close attention to their brakes, their windshield wipers and make sure their car battery is checked.


That’s why all four Auto Tech Centers in Crystal Lake, McHenry, Woodstock and Huntley are now offering free safety inspections to help drivers prepare themselves for what promises to be another winter wallop.


“Nobody wants to be caught in a blizzard with a dead battery, or not be able to see out their windshield. So we’re here to make sure everything on your car is Winter Ready. And we do everything possible to offer the best tires-from Goodyear, Dunlop, Hercules-at the lowest possible prices.”


In addition, all four Auto Tech Centers are staffed by fully trained and certified technicians utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and facilities and each center offers a wide variety of service options.

With four locations in Crystal Lake, McHenry, Woodstock and Huntley, Auto Tech has become the Tire and Service Experts, offering everything from new tire sales and installation to a wide variety of automotive services.
