Default Need a reputable repair shop near Grand Valley

My son goes to Grand Valley in Allendale. He called me today and said he thinks his front wheel bearing in his 2000 Chevy Zr2 is making noise.With no tools or a place to work on his truck he needs somebody to take a look at it and tell him for sure what it is and if he should make the ride home to Washington MI about 200 miles. Or if they can fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

Tell him to go to Tolmans Auto behind the McDonalds. Whenever I don't feel like doing the repair myself I go there. Great place and fair prices.

Truth, I know Mark and he's a good guy and a good mechanic. I've never had a problem with Tolman's.
