TIRES

Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.

We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.


Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Saint's Automotive Service Center, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.

Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Saint's Automotive Service Center.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Saint's Automotive Service Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 763-389-9777 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Saint's Automotive Service Center, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Saint's Automotive Service Center to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.

Testimonials

  • Fantastic Service for my Saabs. Great staff with expertise and willingness to go the extra mile. I will only use Saints.
    -Steve W.

  • Dave is the best! If you want an HONEST and fair guy that'll give you the real problem, and tell you what needs to be done right away and what can wait a little, this is where you want to be. I don't feel like I have to check anything out with my "motor head" friends because Dave is always honest with his customers.
    -Lynda P.

  • I drive up to Saints before I would go to the dealer with my Honda!
    -Ben B.

  • Very friendly and knowledgeable. Best place for my imports.
    -Connor B.

  • Great service, great workmanship and great guys! It is very reassuring to have a mechanic that is fair and that you can trust. I have been using Saints for over 10 years!
    -Mike E.

  • I just want to say thank you for taking such good care of my car over the past 20 some years. You are probably the most honest and trustworthy auto repair shop in Minnesota. One of my only regrets about moving to Michigan is that you are not moving too.

    I wish you much success and happiness in the years ahead.
    -Sandi G.

  • I just wanted to thank you for many years of great service. I've always felt confident with your accurate assessments of any issues with my car. I also appreciate your fair pricing and that you never have tried selling me service or parts I don't need.
    -Shirley C.

  • Once again, SaintsAuto has proven themselves to be the place to take your car to. I have a 1993 Subaru Impreza that I bought new in 1993. I love this car, but it's getting old. This is the second time I've brought my car to Saints for a different problem. It's hard to find the right parts for my car due to age. Both Dave and Jeff stayed with it. To the point that Dave even gave up his Saturday (when they are closed) to work on it. I can't thank Dave and Jeff enough for their efforts and the headaches we experienced for my situation. I would give Saints Auto a 10 star rating if they had a rating system on this site.
    -Suzzette

  • Saints Auto is a top quality service center. It is not always easy for me to walk into a service shop and feel comfortable, as I don't know much about vehicles. At Saints they put you at ease. They are very friendly and honest. They go above and beyond the call of duty. Recently I had my car serviced, just routine maintenance. Oil change, courtesy inspection. I had a musty smell in my vents, they totally resolved the issue. I feel when I leave there that my car is in top running condition. They are professional yet treat you like a friend. Thank you Dave and Jeff!!
    -Teresa P.

  • Dear Dave & Jeff,

    Third time is the charm! Just a little note to say thank you for staying with me and my car to get the issue with the gas sensor resolved.

    I truly appreciate your thoroughness and honesty; it's a rare commodity in today's world.

    I will refer you to anyone I know and I will definitely be back for any future repairs on my "Binky" that I may need. For my sake, not too soon.

    Jeff, you are awesome with customers. You're quite the salesman and you're very knowledgeable. I'll miss our conversations until I come back again. Dave, what can I say. You're a great mechanic! I appreciate the experience I had with both of you.
    -Suzzette

  • Going to Saint's Automotive was the BEST choice we could have made! There are many choices for auto repair in Elk River/Zimmerman/Princeton/Milaca area. We are newer to the area and wanted to find a place closer to our house rather than driving to Wayzata each time we needed a car service or repair. We went to Saint's Automotive for the first time this spring. We needed extensive maintenance performed on my husband's truck that we had let lapse. After taking a through look at the truck, Jeff took the time to go over each and every service that was due and honestly told us what NEEDED to be done ASAP. I told him we were on a tight budget and he worked with us to identify what were the most serious needs for the vehicle and what could wait. They did a fantastic job with the maintenance that was performed! The truck ran like it was brand new and the prices were more than fair.

    We then brought my SUV to them to for an oil change. Saint's Automotive was able to identify problems/issues with the vehicle that the dealership missed. Instead of telling us what the repairs would cost and insisting to do have them performed immediately they instructed me to contact the dealership and urge them to perform the repairs as they should be under warranty. Saint's Automotive was right! The dealership performed all repairs found by Saint's and Saint's Automotive saved us $700 because everything was covered under warranty!

    I recommend everyone to Saint's Automotive. My parents now drive from Plymouth to Princeton because of their exceptional honesty, detail and fair pricing. Saint's Automotive is better than any dealership I have ever been. They have my highest recommendation! I simply cannot praise this business enough!!
    -Paul and Caitlyn S.

  • I have been coming to Saint's Auto for vehicle service for the last 11 years. Personally I would not bring my vehicle anywhere else if circumstances permitted. Dave has always been a very trustworthy, personable and intelligent mechanic with great values.

    It is great to see his business grow with the addition of a very friendly energetic new service advisor (Jeff) , and well trained adverse mechanic(Nathan). I will continue referring business in Saint's direction and would suggest to everyone to bring their vehicle here for service no matter the make or model of vehicle. You're sure to be pleased with the outcome.
    -Alan P.

  • To whom it may concern:

    As a customer of several years at Saint's Auto, I can honestly and happily say that I would highly recommend their service to everyone!!

    They are honest, friendly and give great service to all. I truly appreciate Dave and Jeff and all at Saint's Auto.
