106 ST Tire & Wheel Announces the Grand Opening of a Napa Car Care Center
106 St Tire & Wheel, Inc a decades old tire and wheel chain in Queens, NYC is delighted to announce the opening of their 5th location at 105-08 Northern Blvd, 718-408-1245 open Monday through Sunday 8am-8pm. Now, 106 St Tire, is a member of the world famous Napa Auto Parts family and is a Napa Car Care Center focusing on preventative maintenance offering our customers in Brooklyn and Queens an opportunity to extend the life of their vehicle with reasonably priced car care.
A spokeswoman for 106 St Tire & Wheel stated, “Too many of our customers do damage control rather than preventative maintenance. The problem with that is often additional needless expense in mechanical repairs. When not performed when warranted, issues tend to escalate to related parts and their function. For example, what may start out as a very low cost, simple brake pad replacement lands up costing owners more when ignored. Left alone brake pad replacements deteriorate and start destroying brake rotors then brake calibers and, eventually, brake failure results in more expensive repairs and, perhaps, an accident where someone gets hurt. With our low prices on car care like Napa front brakes installed at $65 on most cars, wheel alignments for most cars at only $45, oil changes and free tire rotation at only $25, wheel repair starts at $35 and after this winter and the sea of pot holes, most of us will suffer from some pot hole damage to the undercarriage of our cars. We make every effort to keep our prices low, our service great and our range of services always expanding and now 106 St Tire is proud to be of service to the community creating the coveted win-win relationship with our customers.
“106 ST Tire & Wheel's long term goal has long been making our community aware of the important issues of our time not just from the standpoint of our customers' vehicle life but also that our cars, when not operating effectively, are actually community issues. Four thousand pounds of mental hurdling down a road is not a joke and when placed on poor tires, tires being the only part of your car touching the ground, there is intrinsic danger. Add to that bad brakes and drivers are putting our neighborhoods, other drivers and our kids at risk.
Improperly inflated tires do that as well as they are unsafe, cause thousands of accidents nationwide not to mention hundreds of thousands of dollars, lives are lost each and every year and too many accidents result. 106 St Tire & Wheel has answered that risk by offering a range of free services like free tire pressure checks and free compressed air to make Queens safer.
Additionally, cars use more gas which is costly and impacts all of us here in New York City. More gasoline use translates to a diminishing air quality. 106 St Tire & Wheel is concerned for the elderly and our kids as gasoline fumes, air conditioning use, poor gas mileage, hot summers impact residents as poor air quality affects everyone. Ignoring the bigger picture of vehicle maintenance pours tons of greenhouse gases into our air and accelerates climate change. The result: there's an epidemic of all kinds of breathing issues like asthma affecting especially kids. To help our neighbors in Brooklyn and Queens, 106 St Tire & Wheel was the first tire dealer to bring energy efficient, gas mileage increasing nitrogen fill to this area.”
106 ST Tire and Wheel has challeneged the cutting edge since the first day it began its operation. It has the distiction of bring the only tire and rim business in the tri-state area owned and operated by a woman. Women remain a focus for our business as we pride ourselves in not overcharging them as most auto repair shops do. Our female customers always get special treatment at 106 St Tire & Wheel as we employ women and remember our humble roots when a lovely lady worked hard to establish a business that was community oriented and she reveled in seeing the same customer's over out counter year after year.
Today, 106 St Tire and Wheel is a second generation Queens auto repair business growing, adding new services, lowering costs, expanding and serving Brooklyn and Queens with customer friendly prices and awareness geared to serving ordinary customers with high tech solutions.
The newest location of 106 St Tire & Wheel, the Napa service center is open Monday through Sunday at 105-08 Northern Blvd 11368.
