Why Tire Care Is Important

As the point of contact between your vehicle and the road, the health of your tires should be considered of equal importance to the health of your engine. Tires were many hats that contribute to your daily driving dynamics. First, they effectively transmit the torque, traction, and braking forces to the road surface. They also maintain and change the direction of travel and support the weight of the vehicle. Additionally, tires act to insulate the vehicle from the road, reducing road noise and leading to a more comfortable ride. When one or more of your tires becomes compromised, performance will suffer. If a tire’s air pressure is low, for example, your tires become less stable, braking is slower, gas mileage is affected due to the increased resistance, and the rate of wear is higher.

Tire Maintenance and Repair

Tire care is a crucial aspect of routine maintenance. By coming in regularly for tire service, you’re ensuring each tire is in top condition and addressing issues as they arise. One of the most common tire maintenance tasks we do is tire rotation. Tires tend to wear down at different rates depending on their position. Rotating your tires helps spread the wear evenly across your vehicle, further increasing their lifespan. We also offer tire balances that eliminate imbalance between the tire and wheel assembly and wheel alignment, which ensures the tires meet the road at the right angle. In the event of a puncture, our technicians may be able to repair it; a full inspection will be required to confirm if repair is possible. Other types of damage, such as cracks, bulges, or cuts, usually need replacement instead. Regular service at our local tire shop ensures that your tires are correctly pressurized, wearing evenly, and damage-free. If it’s been a while since we last inspected your tires, make a service appointment today. Your car’s tires are critical to your vehicle’s performance, safety, and fuel efficiency, and we’ll ensure you get top service.
