Why Is Tire Care Important In Your Car’s Health?
When your tires are off in terms of air, alignment, or balance, it affects other parts of your car. For example, poor tire inflation levels and improper tire rotation can cause premature wear, and overinflation can lead to difficulty gripping the road. At Tire Max, we’ll inspect your tires and help you determine the service you need to get the most life out of them.
Computerized Wheel Balancing
By using computerized wheel balancers, our team can more accurately identify the weight distribution problems your vehicle is experiencing. During the process, our experts will mount your wheel on the computerized wheel balancing machine and spin it. Acting upon the information we receive from our equipment, our service staff will apply additional weight to the indicated areas in order to alleviate vibrations and help the assembly roll more smoothly. With your tires and wheels properly balanced, you can enjoy an overall smoother ride, greater control, and longer lasting tires.
Our tire rotation service involves changing the position of a vehicle’s tires in order to reduce massive tread differentiation between them. By alternating tires according to tire rotation patterns, drivers can help distribute tread wear more evenly and keep tires working for much longer. Beyond the benefit of extended tread life, however, routine and professional tire rotation services can also improve your gas mileage. This is because well-maintained tires reduce rolling resistance, which affects your vehicle’s performance and gas mileage.
There are many hazards that can make tires less effective and more of a danger to drivers and passengers. It is not uncommon for a sharp stone, nail, or other pointed piece of debris to puncture a tire, but we advise you only drive on a flat tire in extreme circumstances, such as when you need to reach safety from a busy highway. It’s important to note that the longer you use a flat tire, the more unlikely it becomes that a tire repair service can be performed because of the damage both the tire and rim will incur. During your appointment, we will do our best to patch or seal the area to save you money on a new tire.
