Tire & Wheel Services

Tire and Wheel Services

When it comes to tire and wheels services we take pride in being the very best. There is a reason that for many years the Mercedes dealer in Traverse City would trust only us to mount and balance tires on their $100,000 and up special edition vehicles. In addition to the responsibility of being trusted to care for wheels that in many cases cost over $2000.00 each, it was also a great honor to be known and trusted as the best.

We carry that same pride and attention to detail in all of our tire and wheel services. The difference is our dedicated employees who make our customer’s safety their top priority; going to great lengths to make sure that all wheels are torqued accurately and all tires are filled with nitrogen exactly to the manufacturer’s specifications. Marathon has been a leader in the tire business in Traverse City since 1981.

We were the first to bring Nokian Hakkapeliitta winter tires to the Midwest-- before most tire dealers were even thinking about snow tires. Since then, Marathon Automotive has been the region’s leader in winter tires and committed to our customer’s driving safety all year long. Since our inception, we have been focused on putting customer’s needs first.

What makes us a better tire store?

We value your time.
We make appointments for tires and we will have you in and out in less than an hour, or if it is more convenient, our shuttle can give you a ride to work or home.

We value your safety.
When we have your tires off, we will inspect your brakes.

We care for the environment.
We recycle all used tires through a licensed recycler, researching and offering low rolling resistance tires, and focusing on companies like Nokian whose birch leaf insignia indicates their “complete absence of toxic materials.”

We value your business.
Our customer service is the best anywhere… there is a reason Motor Age magazine rated us one of the “Top 10 Automotive Shops in the USA” in their December 2009 issue. AAA also chose us as the only shop in Traverse City to represent them. We continually research tires so we know the best choices and values for our customers.

Most tire chain stores will try to sell you the tire that makes the most profit for them. We sell you the best tire for your needs. We answer to friends, family & customers not corporate boards.
