Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center scheduled to open

The new Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center is set to open in October in the northwest at 5446 Drexel Road, just off U.S. Highway 95 at Ann Road next to Team Ford Lincoln.

Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center is the fast solution for complete vehicle service.

“We are excited to begin service for all vehicles in the Las Vegas Valley,” said Terry Bruns, service manager. “Initially, we plan to employ eight to 10 people and increase as the necessity for complete service grows.”

Bruns said the center provides service for all makes and models of cars and trucks by factory-trained experts. They use quality parts from trusted brands such as Motorcraft and name-brand tires from Goodyear, Continental, Michelin and more.

Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center will be open for service on evenings and weekends. Hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Appointments are not necessary and some services can be performed while you wait.

According to Bruns, the staff has been trained to thoroughly inspect each vehicle’s key components and systems, and then provide an in-depth report to help owners easily monitor their car or truck’s maintenance needs.
