Tires are the connection between your vehicle and the surface of the road. Tires are critical part of your vehicle’s
suspension system, tires are responsible for handling the forces of driving, steering, and braking to the surface of
the road. The air inside your tires influence vehicle performance, tire tread life, and ride comfort. Tire maintenance
is important for getting the most out of your tires. Our technicians will advise you know when it is appropriate to
preform a tire rotation, a balance, an alignment, or when it is best time to purchase a new set of tires.
We use computerized wheel balancers to pinpoint weight differences in a tire and wheel. A tire and its wheel should both maintain an equal amount of weight throughout a rotation. Tires and wheels are nearly never perfect. In fact, some tire manufacturers mark the lightest part of a tire so that drivers can easily match it to the heaviest part of the wheel. Normal tire wear will also gradually add imbalance to the tire and wheel. Affecting it's weight distribution. A computerized wheel balancing service will return the balance of your car or truck’s wheels to factory specifications.
Wheel alignments help ensure your tires are angled correctly—level with the ground, pointing straight ahead, and parallel to each other—so they can maintain straight-line tracking. Proper alignment angles will help you maximize the life of your tires. In addition, the handling of your vehicle will be considerably easier. Wheel alignments are arguably the most important aspect of wheel and tire maintenance.
When your tires are worn, our technicians will conduct a thorough investigation of your driving needs to help recommend the best possible set of tires for your car or truck. Contact us today to learn more about our tire offerings or feel free to browse our online tire catalog.
