Tire Selection & Maintenance
Tire maintenance is very important to the safety and longevity of your car. Tires need to be selected by the right dimension for the vehicle’s make and model. Tires should be bought in sets of four, or at the very least matching groups of 2 on each axle. You can shop for tires on our website by size, brand name, or car make, style, and year. Browse our huge inventory of tires, and compare tire specifications and costs before you buy, to see if you are receiving the best tires for your needs and price range.
Why Do I Need New Tires?
Tires wear in time and the tread starts to become thin, which can result in the worn tires losing traction. This creates safety risks that can be avoided. Manufactures recommend tires must not be used for longer than 5 years, yet with regular usage tires being replaced every couple of years is more common. Wear happens with regular driving. Other factors such as driving habits, roadway conditions, and weather may reduce the life of your tires.
You may need new tires if:
- Your tread is below 4/32, or cannot pass the “penny” test
- Tread is noticeably minimized or flush with the tread bars
- There is irregular tread wear
- Bulges, bumps, or soft spots on the tire
- Damages to the tire that cannot be fixed
Speak with our technicians about how we appropriately install your new tires. This includes:
- Checking the lug nuts for wear
- Installing new valve stems
- Installing the tires
- Proper balancing of the tires
- Checking the disc brake caliper clearance
- Measure the distance between calipers, wheels, and rims to inspect for potential disturbances
- Tightening lug nuts to proper torque
