Purchase and Installation
Tires are the connection between your vehicle and the surface of the road. A critical part of your vehicles suspension system, tires are responsible for transmitting the forces of driving, steering, and braking to the surface of the road. Although tires are easily maintained, they are often overlooked. The air inside your tires and the design of the tire influence vehicle performance, tread life, and ride comfort. Maintenance is vital for getting the most out of your tires by maximizing mileage and tread wear. Our staff will help you understand the basics of tire care and maintenance, like when you should seek tire rotation, balance, and alignment. Our staff will also help you understand tire sidewall markings, teach you the best time to purchase a new set of tires, and show you how to choose the right set of tires for your vehicle.
Premature tire wear is caused by poor inflation levels and improper rotation. Where as correctly inflated tires tend to have durable sidewalls, under-inflated tires often have flexible sidewalls that result in quicker sidewall wear. Over-inflated tires are also undesirable and will result in excessive center tread wear. Wheel balancing has the potential to relieve some symptoms of improper tire wear, like excessive lean. However, improper tire wear may also be the cause of alignment issues. During any tire repair service, our staff will be able to determine whether a tire balancing or rotation service can solve your current set of issues. Because tire inflation is so important, our staff will take care to follow the inflation standards recommended by the manufacturer during a new tire installation. Overall, proper inflation can lead to reduced tread movement, increased water dissipation, reduced rolling resistance, proper traction, and adequate load carrying capabilities. Our tire service work promotes better fuel economy and longer tread life.
