Mavis Tires & Brakes is now open at 419 Silver Ridge Road in Fort Mill, bringing affordable vehicle services to the community at its second location, according to a press release.

   The business is inviting local drivers to stop by the new store for a free tire pressure and visual tire check.

   “Underinflated tires decrease fuel efficiency,” said Brian Sisson, Senior Vice President, Retail Operations, “while overinflation can lead to irregular tread wear and reduced tread life. Tire pressure increases or decreases by 1 PSI per 10 degrees of temperature fluctuation. A simple tire pressure check can help drivers save money on fuel and extend the life of their tires.”

    Mavis now has 29 retail locations in South Carolina and more than 850 stores nationally.
