Auto Tip of the Week:   
End of Summer is the perfect time for car care. You can save yourself a lot of headache by making sure your spare tire is inflated and in good shape. Air escapes through rubber tires at a rate of one psi per month. With the spare being located in out of sight, out of mind locations, it's easy to go months without checking the spare. Refer to the manufacturer's guide on the ideal pressure rate for your specific vehicle's spare tire.
For all your 
Car Care Needs!  
1680 East President St, Savannah GA 31401
Mon-Sat:  8AM-530PM, 
Closed weekends

Mattress Tip of the Week:

Did you know your allergies could be less bothersome simply by putting dust mite proof covers on pillows and mattresses? Most people tend to have mattress covers but forget to protect the very place they lay their head at night.
