The technicians at Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.
We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.
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 technicians get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center today for differentials examination and servicing.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 608-835-7339 or visit Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center in Oregon, WI 53575 today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center for all your transmission repairs.
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center today.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
This was my first experience, and I was blown away! Service was scheduled for 10-12 a.m., and when they realized it would be longer than than that, provided me with a loaner. They also compensated me for the delay. I received a detailed report of what was checked out. The young men I dealt with were extremely friendly and kind. I knew if Tom Stoehr could trust them with his business, so could I. I now have my new mechanic and I couldn’t be happier! One more thing that's long overdue (because I can't figure out how to do a new review) . . . one day last summer, I showed up unannounced with my Can Am Spyder, as I needed the tire pressure reduced. They took care of it immediately and got me on my way. Can't beat the service, professionalism, and personal treatment that this business provides! Thank you!

I have two service appointments to comment on, one with my wife's vehicle and the other with my vehicle. My wife's vehicle required maintenance and repair and we received a detailed explanation of what needed to be done, and why. We also received numerous photographs identifying the problems. The work was extensive and my wife was given a free loaner vehicle to use. The staff were very friendly, polite and professional. All services were completed in a timely manner. Very well done! My experience involved a routine oil change and tire rotation. I was also impressed with the friendly and professional manner in which staff interacted with me, and was very satisfied with the cost. I have also read the Code of Ethics posted on the web site and applaud the transparency and professionalism. I am happy to support a local family-owned business and will return soon for an additional service.
