Modern Tire Opened New Store - Rocky Hill

Rocky Hill Update

Modern Tire is a family owned and operated business serving Connecticut since 1941.  Modern Tire is proud to introduce its fifth location, Rocky Hill.  The Rocky Hill location is now open and ready to serve customers!

At this point, construction is completed and all of the rock has been removed.  In total, 1,027 truckloads of rock were removed.  The rock was carefully removed, so that the store would be ten feet lower and level with the street.

The foundation has been completed, including a very unique Express Lube Floor!  The floor of the Express Lube was customized, allowing the ability to use "rolling jacks".  The "rolling jacks" give the mechanic the capability to perform tire rotations, change tires, and check brakes as the oil change is being completed.  This speeds up the entire process, allowing the customer to get all checks done faster than ever before!

This picture shows the construction that took place.  A considerable amount of cinderblocks are being used in the construction.  Every five feet of blocks must be filled with grout, making the building Earthquake Safe, following Commercial Building Regulations.

To give larger automobiles the capability to be services by Modern Tire - Rocky Hill, one of the maintenance bay doors has been customized.  The Truck Bay was increased in width from 10 feet to 12 feet.  This size change allows Large Trucks, Limos, and some Campers the ability to be serviced at Modern Tire - Rocky Hill.

With all these great features there will be many customers and a lot of Waste Oil.  In our efforts to be “Green”, we have installed two 750 gallon waste oil tanks and two oil furnaces so that we can recycle the waste and use it as heating oil.

Stop in to the Rock Hill location today for the best customer service possible!
