Why Get New Tires?
As your car’s miles increase so does your tires wear. Eventually, your tires’ tread starts to become thin, which will result in the wheel losing traction on the road and a potential safety risk. Manufacturers often suggest tires should be changed no longer than 10 year and changing wheels is advised every 6 years. However, depending on the tire, roadway conditions, weather and driving habits/use, we recommend changing your tires every few years.
You might need brand-new tires if:
- Your tread is below 4/32 or cannot pass the "penny" test
- Footstep is visibly lowered or flush with the tread bars
- Irregular tread wear
- Bulges, bumps or soft spots on the tire
- Damage to the tire that can't be mended
This is how we properly set up your new tires:
- Inspecting the lug nuts for wear
- Installing new valve stems
- Installing the tires
- Appropriate balancing of the wheels
- Inspecting the disc brake caliper clearance
- Measure the width in between calipers, wheels and rims to check for possible disturbances
- Tightening up lug nuts to appropriate torque
