The connection between your vehicle and the surface of the road is tires. The tires on your vehicle are a critical part of the suspension system and are responsible for transmitting the forces of driving, steering and braking to the surface of the road. Tires are often overlooked even though they are easily maintained. Design of the tire and air inside the tires both influence vehicle performance, tire tread life, and ride comfort. Maintaining your tires is important to get the most bang for your buck by making them last longer. You should seek tire rotation, balance, and alignment from our staff to understand the basics of tire care and maintenance. Our staff will also help you understand tire sidewall markings, teach you when the best time to purchase a new set of tires is, and show you how to choose the right set of tires for your vehicle.
Poor tire inflation levels and improper tire rotation cause premature tire wear. Underinflated tires often have flexible sidewalls that result in quicker sidewall wear, whereas correctly inflated tires tend to have durable sidewalls. Excessive center tread wear will also result from overinflated tires. Improper tire wear, like excessive lean, has the potential to be relieved by wheel balancing. However, alignment issues may also be the cause of improper tire wear. Our staff will be able to determine whether a tire balancing or rotation service can solve your current set of issues during any tire repair service. Our staff will take care to follow the inflation standards recommended by the manufacturer during a new tire installation because tire inflation is so important. Overall, adequate tire inflation can lead to reduced tread movement, increased water dissipation, reduced rolling resistance, proper traction, and proper load carrying capabilities. Our tire service work results in better fuel economy and longer tread life.
