About Bill's Automotive
Auto Repair and Tire Service in Windsor, ON
Bill Slavik began his automotive career in 1976 where he apprenticed at a two-bay gas station on Huron Church Line. At a time when the auto mechanic trade was regarded as unappealing, and personal rewards were only recognized by the tradesmen, themselves, Bill Slavik had a dream to build a company which would introduce new levels of professionalism, trust and integrity to the industry he loved.
With both a Class A license and a Truck & Coach license, Bill pursued his goal by gaining additional experience and knowledge. He attained his Natural Gas (ICE-NG) and Propane (ICE-P) licenses, and then moved to the GM Transmission Plant where he obtained experience in quality control and product engineering. Bill left GM and began working in an automobile dealership where his training and management experience would later be beneficial in starting his own business.
Bill's Automotive was established in 1985 as a one-bay facility at 1235 St. Luke Road. Bill operated at this location for four years. During that time, Bill worked to service his dedicated clientele (some of whom had been with him since his apprenticeship training), and started gaining experience in industrial and forklift repairs. Operating 24-hrs, on-call, commercial and industrial fleets were now an important part of his business, resulting in a need for more manpower and even more service bays.
Bill's Automotive moved to its present location at 2850 Jefferson Blvd in 1989 where an 8 bay, 5200 square foot building was erected. In 1995, a twin 8 bay, 6400 square foot building was added to accommodate fleet contracts with the City of Windsor’s Police Services and Windsor Utilities divisions. Bill's Automotive was now the largest privately owned automotive repair facility in the City of Windsor.
Bill’s Automotive has continued to grow and thrive as a dynamic automobile service organization operating with a strong commitment to honesty and integrity with genuine care and concern for the well-being and safety of their clients.

BK Wheel & Tire
BK Wheel & Tire is the newest member of Bill's Auto & Tire Plaza and a convenient addition to Bill's Automotive. BK Wheel & Tire was created to provide Bill's Automotive service customers with the same quality, responsiveness and care they have come to expect. Due to numerous requests for us to provide our customers with reliable and affordable tire tire sales and service we decided to do just that.
The "BK" in BK Wheel & Tire represents the first initials of Bill Slavik and his son Kevin who own and operate this new business. Our decision to focus on tires and wheels was an easy one. For years, we had been referring our customers to other Windsor businesses for their tire needs and we felt it would be a good idea to provide them with that service right here, at our location.
The first thing we did is bring in a tire expert. Larry Tessier with 50 years of experience (not bad for a "young guy") manages the sales showroom and enjoys helping our customers by sharing his knowledge and experience.
We believe in providing our customers with the best tire for their particular need. We are not beholden to any one brand so we're free to provide objective guidance when helping our customers to select the right tire for them.
User-Friendly Tire Sales
We know that buying tires can be confusing and even a bit frightening for someone who doesn't understand the specifications, the differences between brands, warranties and all the other unknowns. That's why we go our of our way to ensure they clearly understand their options and the benefits and possible disadvantages associated with them.
So, stop in today to see why we're so excited about our new venture. We look forward to an opportunity to demonstrate our new, "user-friendly" approach to tire sales and service.
