At Fox Run Auto, We Have Both Indoor and Outdoor Waiting Rooms

There are comfy leather couches and a 70-inch television, along with a fresh pot of hot coffee always available. We also offer free wi-fi to all our guests.

Are You Due for New Tires?

Are You Due for New Tires?

Nobody ever wants to deal with getting new tires for their car, truck or SUV. Like a lot of automotive maintenance tasks, it's just something that has to be done every once in awhile. The more you drive, the more the treads will wear out. Eventually, it becomes quite dangerous to drive on bald tires. Losing Control on the Road When tires lose their tread depth, you minimize the traction between the rubber and the road.

Obviously, all of these scenarios can be a little scary when you don't have complete control of your vehicle while driving. You are endangering yourself and anyone else on the roads or sidewalks around you! Beware of Blowouts! The biggest concern of worn tires is that you run the risk of a blowout.
