Tires in Clearwater
Looking for good quality tires in Clearwater? Your tires are the single most important safety feature on the vehicle. They are the only thing that connects the vehicle to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do much if the tires don’t have a grip on the pavement.
Tires can last awhile depending how you drive your vehicle. However, vehicle owners will still need to replace their tires probably a few times throughout the life of a vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by vehicle type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage on your tires.
At Clearwater Auto Repair we offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer’s specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles – this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all Auto repair shops get it right.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Clearwater Auto has the professional equipment and knowledge to measure the balance of your vehicle’s tires and make necessary corrections if necessary. Bring your vehicle in so we can evaluate your tires in Clearwater, Florida.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. Our tire repair experts in Clearwater will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a vehicle carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner’s manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
