Summertime is here, and that means excessive heat and additional wear on your vehicle. The pros at GBE Performance Automotive can keep your vehicle in top shape during these sweltering months.

At GBE they can handle all your car care needs from big repairs to small ones. Serving Galveston since 1921, they have the experience and know-how to get you back on the road fast.

Their ASE certified and L1 technicians are experts in all areas of your automobile, so when it comes to car repairs or questions, Galveston residents can rest easy knowing they can go to one place for everything.

A/C Checkup

As the heat rises, you may notice your car’s air conditioner not cooling as well as has been. That can make for an extremely uncomfortable commute. Stop by GBE and let them check your A/C system and get your car cool again.

Air conditioning systems will not perform well if routine maintenance is not done. Every year, you should change cabin filters that protect the integral parts of the A/C behind the dash. You should also have your A/C checked for Freon leaks if it is not cooling correctly.

A Freon leak is not only bad for the environment, it can be detrimental to your A/C compressor, which is lubricated by oil contained in the Freon. If you lose too much Freon, then the compressor — which is a main part to the system — will fail due to lack of lubrication.

Most A/C systems can be checked and recharged for less than $100. If you feel your car is not as cold as it should be, stop by and talk with one of our service reps today. 

Time for Tires?

GBE also has a wide variety of tires in stock, and deliveries arrive every day from warehouses across the nation.

Tire wear can be an indication of other problems. If you’ve got uneven wear on your tires, an alignment or other repairs may be needed. Clunks, rattles, pops and vibrations while driving can all be an indicator of suspension or steering components that need attention. We do suspension and steering repairs on all makes and models.

If you’ve got worn out tires and need a good price on name brands like Goodyear, Cooper, Mastercraft, Michelin, Toyo, Yokohama and more, stop by or give GBE a call. We also stock a wide selection of large off-road tires for all the lifted trucks out there. 

Lift Up Your Truck

Got a new truck and thinking about a lift kit or other accessories? Or maybe you have an old one you need to bring back to life? We sell and install lift kits, bumpers, lights, bedcovers, steps, toolboxes and all sorts of truck and contractor accessories from manufactures like Pro Comp, Skyjacker, Rubicon Express, Smitybilt, Bakflip, Undercover, Rigid Industries and many more.

Summer is when everybody likes to get out and show off their rig, so bring your truck down and get it customized today to stand out in the crowd.

Come see us Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We are located at 3502 Broadway on Galveston Island. You can also check us out online at GBEPERFORMANCE.COM.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers in Galveston that we have had the pleasure of serving for the last 93 years. Thanks, Galveston! We would also like to congratulate and welcome Jim Yarbrough as our new Mayor!
