Your Vehicle’s Tires are Important

Tires are perhaps one of the most important parts of your vehicle - no matter which make/model vehicle you own. The tires are the only part of your vehicle that comes in contact with the road - enabling your car, truck or SUV to accelerate, stop well and turn smoothly. Your tires play an essential role in keeping you and those traveling with you safe. Each tire supports one-quarter of the weight of your vehicle. If any one of your tires is compromised, the others have to adjust to compensate and in some cases (a flat tire) your vehicle can't function at all. Tread depth of your tires changes over time as it wears away and is altered by the climate, driving habits, roadway surfaces, etc. Good tread depth is essential to proper traction as they grip the road and help you turn and stop safely. The grooves and tread also work together to appropriately siphon water or safely move your vehicle over snowy or slippery roads in the winter months.

Timely Tire Replacement will serve you well

Safety - there are many problems that can arise with your tires that can potentially compromise your safety. From difficulties with traction due to tread problems to a flat tire caused by a slow leak from a nail you ran over months ago. This is why it is especially important that you have them assessed regularly and repaired or replaced as recommended. Efficiency/Comfort - Tires keep your vehicle moving smoothly over the roadways. If they are unevenly worn, not properly balanced, misaligned or damaged it makes it more difficult for all of your vehicle to keep in constant with the road. Because of this, your ride may vibrate, pull to one side, be bumpy and/or is likely wasting fuel since your vehicle is working extra hard in order to compensate for these problems.

Words from our clients:

Customer service was great and follow up details about my vehicle while it was in the shop were very helpful. Emails with attached pictures and details was a first for me and the shop contacted me regarding services needed rather than just fixing it and charging me. I knew everything going on from drop off until pickup. The shuttle service was also very helpful!
