TIRES & WHEELS
The certified technicians at our repair shop are experts in providing high-quality tire services, including wheel alignments, tire installations, tire balancing, tire rotations, and tire inspections.
Making sure that your wheel alignment is correct is one of the most important things you can do to properly care for your tires. A poorly aligned car will unevenly wear your tires at an alarming rate. If left uncorrected, you may need to buy new tires much sooner than anticipated! Our certified service team would like to invite you to our shop for a wheel alignment service that could extend the life of your tires.
The actual wheel alignment itself doesn’t just involve the wheels or tires; it includes adjusting the vehicle’s suspension systems. Our team knows how to adjust these sophisticated systems so that your car drives with exceptional precision. Here is a list of a few things which may be signs that you need a wheel alignment:
- Uneven tire wear
- Drifting to one side or another on the road while driving straight
- Vibration in the steering wheel
Even if you don’t notice any of these signs, you may still need a wheel alignment as part of your warranty agreement.
It's very important to perform regular tire maintenance, not just for the safety of your family, but also to ensure a long lifespan for your vehicle. You are advised to always consult with your owner's manual in terms of finding the proper tire size for the year, make, and model of your vehicle. When you purchase new tires, they must be in sets of 4, or at least in matching groups of 2 on each axle. This extends the life of your new tires and keeps your tire wear even.

Tire Balancing is important to increase the basic safety of your vehicle and extend the life of your tires. The certified technicians at our auto repair shop are here to help with all your tire balancing and tire service needs.
Tire balancing happens each time you replace your vehicle's tires. Since tires wear depends on road problems and driving practices, uneven wear can be visible after the initial 1,000-2,000 miles of use. It’s important to check your tire balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our certified technicians can assist in determining if your tires need to be balanced and rotated based on mileage and wear.
Your vehicle's weight is not distributed evenly to all four corners. If you leave all 4 tires just the way they are, some tires will eventually wear out faster than others. We know that a tire rotation is an essential part of making your tires last longer. The tire rotation process consists of moving your tires from front to back, moving them from one side of your vehicle to the other, or a combination of both.
Uneven tire wear could bring about unsatisfactory gas efficiency and poor performance, reduce the life of the new tire, and easily cause safety problems. Regular tire rotation helps eliminate premature tire wear and could save you a lot of money on new tires.
Tires need to be checked on a regular basis for damage, such as stones, nails, or other sharp objects that may have penetrated the tire. They also need to be checked for bulges, tears, or cuts that might be the result of contact with road hazards. If you have doubts about the condition of your tires, it's best to have them inspected by our technicians.
