Tire Care

It's easy to overlook your tires. Not every vehicle comes with a low-pressure monitor. Few take the time to inspect the tread wear. There are steps that you can take to care for your tires, including checking air pressure, making sure air pressure is consistent, and you can also check the tire tread for even wear. However, some tire care services are best left to professionals.

Balancing tires is an important aspect of tire care since it equalizes the weight of the combined tire and wheel assembly so that it spins smoothly at high speeds. By using a balancer to determine where the weight should go, our technicians can ensure that the weight is consistent for all wheels. Even small imbalances can make a big difference at higher speeds, so this service allows for more control and safety.

Tire rotations are another critical aspect of tire care. As you drive, most vehicles' tires wear at different rates. If certain wheels wear faster than others, you could have worse handling, longer stopping distances, and a higher chance of a blowout. Tire rotations help to ensure that your tires wear evenly to maximize the longevity of your vehicle.

Check with a trusted mechanic and consult the recommended tire rotation interval in your owner's manual to determine when and how tire rotations should occur.

Brake Inspections

Similar to tires, your brakes are a significant factor in your vehicle's safety and performance. Putting off brake inspections could lead to unsafe stopping distances and less control. Some of the red flags to watch out for include:

  • Vibrations or clunking sounds when you brake
  • Low or spongy brake pedal
  • A brake warning that stays on
  • Hard brake pedal

Allow our technicians to inspect all components of your brakes to ensure that they are functioning correctly.
