Tire Balancing And Rotation
Over the course of a tire’s life, it is subjected to many road conditions. More often than not, they will endure some rough road patches. It's necessary then to make sure all four tires are in lock step, to ensure you get the most life out of your tires. We recommend you get your tires rotated every 6 months or 6,000, so your tires wear evenly. In addition, we also recommend getting your wheels and tires every 3 to 6 months to prevent uneven wear over the tire surface.
Tire Pressure And Repair
Tire pressure can have a very severe impact on how your vehicle drives and handles. If the pressure is set too high, the tire’s contact patch will narrow, taking away its ability to grip. It will also cause your tires to overheat. If the pressure is set too low, it can cause a blowout. This is due to the sidewall bending, making the tire’s internal structure unstable. Our technicians will set your pressure based on manufacturer guidance. In regards to repair, if a hole or scrape is found in the tread of the tire, we will be able to patch it. If damage is found on the sidewall, the tire will need replacing.
Replacement And Alignment
Once your tires’ tread depth reaches a certain threshold, they will no longer be able to hold the road. One simple way to check the depth is by using a penny and sticking it in the tread’s grooves. If you can see Lincoln’s head in any of the tires' grooves, then it's time to change the tires. Our staff will work with you to find the ideal tires for you. We also advise you to get an alignment with a tire change, so not only will you have new tires on your vehicle, but it will drive straight and true.
