Vehicle Services

At R & C Auto and Tire Service Center our mechanics provide all your vehicle service and repair needs. Here are some of the services we provide. 

NYS Inspections

We will perform a New York State safety and emissions inspection, and at the customer option perform any repairs required to comply with new York state safety and emissions rules.

R & C Auto uses high tech diagnostic tools to service vehicles - our mechanics are trained on all diagnostic tools


Brakes are one of the most important safety features of your car. We can perform repairs on premium and specialty brake systems without charging the customer a premium price. One of the products we can use is Posi/Met Premium Brake pads and Premium Rotors. By using products like this, the customer can experience a longer lasting service, with no brake dust and designed to exceed the manufacture's OEM specifications.

If your car makes nose, vibrates or pulls to one side when you use the brakes, bring your car in for a free break inspection (most vehicles).


The exhaust system is critical to controlling the noise of your car, and protects you from potential carbon monoxide poisoning by keeping the engine's emissions away from you and your passengers. We can repair or replace any part of your exhaust system.

If you hear loud engine noise from your car, bring it in so our mechanics can provide quality service promptly.


A properly performing suspension system (shocks and struts) will help your car navigate turns properly, reduce tire wear and improve fuel economy. Problems with suspension can create an unsafe situation or potentially lead to an auto accident.

If you notice uneven tire wear, "clunking" noises when turning or stopping, this could be a sign of a problem with your suspension. At R & C Auto, our mechanics can repair problems with your suspension such as replacing shocks, struts, tie rods, ball joint control arms, and bushings, As always we will use the proper suspension component to repair your car and provide a safe and long lasting experience.


R & C Auto makes sure to stock and supply tires for most vehicles trucks and carry most brands at competitive pricing. So whether you need one tire or 4, we can get you back on the road quickly.

Our mechanics can help you identify the proper tires for your car that fit your needs, usage and budget.
