Car Wash

Rock-n-Roll Car Wash

The full service washing and detailing by Rock-n-Roll Car Wash, just like Madison WI car detailing, harkens to an era “when service was exceptional and quality was standard.” Throw in a fun and friendly atmosphere and nostalgic décor with memorabilia on the walls and rock on the box, and the vanishing car culture of yesteryear blooms again for a while.

According to detailing is like any other maintenance on car, it is done to prevent the breaking down on the clear coat on your car, prevents plastics from fading prematurely, keeps the car looking its best and minimizes interior wear, learn more about why Attention2Detailing can be a great ally for your car.

The service itself is state-of-the-art, including a computerized car wash control system for “the finest car wash available today.”

Owners Ken Crow and Chris McKenna bring years of experience as car wash operators, blending McKenna’s background as an industry consultant with Crow’s reputation for inventiveness and innovation in the car wash industry.

Ocean Tire

Word of mouth from satisfied customers has kept Ocean Tire firmly in our readers’ hearts since 1999, with trustworthy, top-notch service.

Six years ago owners Ron and Danny Rosinksy turned operations over to longtime manager Steve and  his crew, who pride themselves on taking ongoing education classes to keep up on the changing technology, including electric and hybrid car maintenance. 

Like the tire itself, the company is well rounded. The mechanics perform brake repairs, wheel alignments, steering and suspension system repairs, diagnostics, transmission repairs, preventive maintenance, plus glass repair with help from the services of auto glass repair in San Antonio, replacement, and tinting. They also service hybrid vehicles and perform diesel service.

And of course they sell tires, and perform computer spin balancing, flat-tire repairs and tire rotations.

The company website is more than user-friendly; it is thorough, informative, easy to use, and designed to demystify the customer process. (For example, our diligent reporter searched for tires for his particular car, and found 119 matches without having to enter his email or do anything else that gets you sucked in while you’re just, well, kicking the tires.)
