LEX BRODIE'S TIRE IN OUR COMMUNITY

Lex Brodie's Tire has partnered with Project Hawaii Inc.; a non-profit in Keaau that helps Homeless Keiki Succeed on the Big Island. Our 5 Stores across the Island have been collection sites for gifts and supplies that get brought into Hilo via our drivers for distribution. During the Christmas Holiday, Lex Brodie's drivers transferred over 5 truck loads of gifts for the Keiki. This past Easter, Kona agencies and businesses generously donated over 2 truck loads of Easter Baskets and Gifts. It's an amazing outpouring of Love and Aloha that we are so Blessed to share in. Mahalo to the Residents of the Big Island for caring for those less fortunate. Love sharing in the true meaning of Aloha

BRODIE'S ANGELS got TWICE AS NICE! Lex Brodies Tire loves to help our Big Island families. For the past 6 years, BRODIE'S ANGELS have been blessing a Big Island family with repair and tires to keep their vehicle safely on the road.  This year, O'Reilly's Auto Parts Teamed up with US to be able to Bless Two families with much needed repairs.   Meet SAMANTHA-our Westside recipient. Her vehicle literally broke down the night before and had to be towed into our Kona shop to have her repairs done. She works in Kailua-Kona and drives home to Oceanview after 10pm so catching rides was not an option. She was stoked!! Meet KINI KAAWA-our East Hawaii recipient. She had 2 vehicles that needed repairs and could only afford one of them. With her Pathfinder on the mend,  their daily commuter-a Nissan Versa Note needed brakes badly.

Why Factory Scheduled Maintenance?

Why Factory Scheduled Maintenance?

Factory Scheduled Maintenance is designed to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape by checking your vehicle’s important systems and keeping them running optimally. Maintaining your vehicle can help it run longer and prevent problems down the road.  Generally, your first scheduled maintenance update comes around 7,500 miles and may come up again at the following mileages: 15,000, 30,000, 45,000, 60,000, 90,000, and 150,000. Each milestone has its own set maintenance such as an inspection of brake pads, rotating tires, replacing brake fluids, changing spark plugs, and more.    Lex Brodie’s Tire is your alternative automotive service center to the dealerships and any maintenance service done by Lex Brodie’s Tire will still validate your vehicle's warranty.  Stay safe on the road, save money, and enjoy a smoother, quieter ride by keeping your vehicle maintained with Lex Brodie’s Tire.

WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

Customers ask,"DO I REALLY NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?" Alignment assures your tires meet the road at the proper angle. It adjusts the angles of your vehicle’s wheels to original specs for best gas mileage, proper road contact, a smooth ride, and the longest tire life. We recommend an alignment after the installation of new tires or any suspension work. Keep in mind though that alignment adjustments on your vehicle do not last forever. If you hit a pothole or curb really hard, you may risk the chance of kicking your alignment out of spec. Best to get your vehicle check so that you don't risk the chance of wearing out your tires prematurely. Come into LEX BRODIE'S TIRE and we'll be happy to give you a free wheel alignment check after any tire or suspension service. Thank you... Very Much

Unbalanced wheels can cause stress on the wheel bearing and components of the suspension. This can also cause increase gas usage. Wheels that are not properly aligned and balanced, can lead to premature wearing and decrease in tire life
