How Tire Services Can Save You Money
Tire services are vital to your vehicle and can save you money in the long run. These services include tire rotation and alignments. It’s important to get these services done regularly to extend the life of your tires and increase their safety on the road.
Tires are the only thing that connects your vehicle to the road, so it’s vital to take care of them as much as possible. It’s also essential to know what type of tires you have and how to keep them in good condition so that you can drive safely.
Whether you’re looking for new tires, need to have your existing ones changed, or want to get the best tires for your vehicle, our knowledgeable staff can help you every step of the way. We’ll give you a complete overview of what each section of your tires does, what to look for when buying them, and how to properly install them.
Tread wear and a change in tread patterns: If your tires show a lot of wear on one side, this can be an indication that something is going wrong with the wheel alignment or the tire itself. You may also notice a difference in the tread depth of the front and rear tires. If the tires have a noticeable change in tread pattern, it’s time to replace them as they will not provide you with optimal performance and safety on the road.
Center wear and a decrease in tread: If you notice your tires have decreased their tread depth, it’s time to call for tire service. This could be due to a number of factors, including under-inflation or overloading.
Edge of the shoulder wear: If you notice that one side of your tires is wearing down faster than the other, this could be an indicator that something is causing the wear. This is usually a sign that the tires need to be rotated or that the vehicle has a structural issue that requires a visit to the mechanic.
Load index and speed rating: This number is typically stamped into your tires right next to the size. This standardized number tells you a lot about how your tire performs and how it stacks up against others in the same class.
