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 have to 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 of your tire balancing and tire service needs.
Tire balancing happens each time you replace your vehicle's tires. Since tires wear depending 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 tires 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 would 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, poor performance, reduce the life of the new tire and can easily cause safety problems. Regular tire rotation helps eliminate premature tire wear and could save you a lot of money on new tires. Visit our auto repair shop and let our trained technicians rotate your 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. Our auto repair shop is known for performing top-notch tire inspection services.
Nowadays, all modern vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). Each tire has sensors in it that sends the tire's pressure to a central computer. When the pressure is too high or too low, a warning light illuminates on your dashboard, that indicates this pressure has to be corrected.
The tire pressure monitoring system not only prevents premature tire wear but it also makes your car more fuel efficient and provides a smooth driving experience. As a matter of fact, for every 3 pounds of pressure lost, you lose 1% of your fuel economy. Moreover, the TPMS provides assistance in preventing flats, overheating, and even tire blowouts.
Apart from the occasional replacement of the sensors, tire pressure monitoring systems need very little maintenance. Sometimes, when you change your tires between seasons, there's a good chance that you’ll break a sensor. That's why it's best to leave that job to a certified technician. Additionally, when new sensors are installed on a set of spare tires or a sensor is replaced, the technician at our auto repair shop can synchronize the tire pressure monitoring system with the central computer.
