Your vehicle's tires are essential as they will always provide you with a safe and sturdy mode of transportation. A quality set of tires can be even more critical to have if you drive in snow or other challenging weather conditions. To keep your tires in good condition, you should come to a service center's tire department from time to time to receive maintenance and repair service for your tires.

Why Do I Need New Tires?

For too many people tires are simply not on their proverbial radar, but your tires are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. They are the only thing in contact with the road you travel on and are responsible for steering, traction, acceleration, and stopping. They must do all these things under a variety of road and weather conditions and if they fail it can result in an accident. New tires will improve all of these functions, plus they can improve your fuel efficiency.

 

Tire Services We Provide

Tire Inspection

Tire Inspection

Visual inspection of your tires regularly is the surest way to spot signs of wear. A good habit is to check them with every fuel up. Walking around your car while filling up doesn't take extra time and if you do happen to need some air, you're at a service station already. You should be looking for uneven wear patterns. Even wear is good, but too much wear results in a shallow tread which reduces the grip of your tire on the road. Your inspection should also include checking the air pressure. If one side of a tire is more worn than the other side it could be caused by low air pressure. A small, inexpensive tire pressure gauge fits neatly into your center console or glove box. It is a quick and effective way to determine if you have enough air in your tires. Low air pressure can also reduce your control and stability when cornering or making emergency maneuvers. It could also result in an inconvenient flat tire, or worse, a dangerous blow-out at high speed. Conversely, overinflating can be a problem too. When overinflated, the middle section of your tire's tread will be raised. This will cause the outer edges to wear slower than the middle, ultimately limiting the effectiveness of your tire. You should bring your vehicle into our Tire Department immediately for an evaluation if you see a raised center on your tire. Be sure to also look for signs of erratic tread wear. This can occur if your tire is out of balance, but it could be something worse like a suspension issue. This is referred to as cupping and a sure sign of this is an odd pattern of wear on your tire that weaves from side to side.

Patch and Repair

Patch and Repair

A tire patch and repair service could be necessary if you have a leak in your tire. If there is a small leak, this service will ensure that it is properly patched up. This will help to prevent air from flowing back out of the tires.

Tire Rotation

Tire Rotation

A common service that you are going to need to have done a couple of times per year is a tire rotation service. Front tires and rear tires function under different loads, steering, and braking functions. The unequal pressures of these separate systems result in unequal wear from front to rear. Rotating your tires spreads the wear evenly over time, extending the life and performance of your tires. A good suggestion is to rotate them at every other oil change.

Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment

If you ever notice that your vehicle is drifting to a certain side, it could be an indication that you have a problem with your wheel alignment. If this does occur, having it fixed quickly is important as it would lead to a deterioration of your tires. When you have the wheel alignment fixed, it should give you further control over your car and protect your tires.Every vehicle has specific measurements as to where your wheels should sit within the steering and suspension systems. Misalignment of the wheels will impact your fuel economy, handling, and normal tire wear. You should have your vehicle aligned any time you install new tires, or if your tire is removed from the rim for repair. Minor incidents like hitting a deep pothole, large rock, or curb might cause you to need an alignment. Regardless of the severity of the incident, if you notice any unusual performance in steering or handling you should have your vehicle inspected.
