BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc, we want our Bloomington customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 309-662-1555, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc offers.

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Pro Tire & Automotive Services, Inc will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I have always been impressed with their customer service, honesty, and loyalty. They have never steered me wrong and they always stand behind their work.


-Gretchen S.

Wouldn't go anywhere else! Family owned, not corporate! Fair priced, friendly, excellent customer service! They take the time to explain what needs done! Not like other shops that use the "scare tactics" they will only sell you what absolutely needs done!


-Ashley B.

This is where you want to go for great costumer service and timely fixes. They care about their costumers and won't rip you off like other places. Very nice and understanding folks.


-Jake D.

Top notch customer service, fair pricing, timely service, and honest workers.


-Desirae H.

Steve at Pro Tire gives great customer satisfaction! He has always given me an honest opinion of what needs to be done to my vehicle, and has never recommended work I don't immediately need. When Pro Tire does a job, they do it right, but if there is a problem they will correct it. Routine maintenance rates are very reasonable.


-Carol B.

They are not going to try to take advantage of you! I have been going here for over 2 years and they rock!

Brought my van in today because it was making some odd noises when I would turn. Pro Tire diagnosed and fixed the problem for no charge. I trust these guys. They are honest and do good work.


-Jeff C.

Best place to buy tires and have your car worked on.

Steve is always more than helpful. Goes out of his way to find what we need or squeeze us in. Never tries to tall you into unnecessary work. Always fair!
