Our Services and Products include:
Q. What is the proper
air pressure for my tires?
A. Tire pressure varies greatly for different vehicles. Most cars produced
since 1968 list the original
tire size and
inflation pressure (including the
spare tire) on a vehicle place card. This place card is usually
located on the driver-side door or door jam (Ford vehicles list on the rear
passenger door jam), glove box
door, fuel door or engine compartment.
Truck tire pressure
varies by the load the vehicle is carrying, however you can locate a general
pressure in the truck's manual. Always check your tire pressure after the
tires hav had time to cool down (before driving is the best time).
Q. Why is it important to rotate my tires?
A. Most of today's cars are either front wheel or four-wheel drive. This is
wonderful for traction, but hard on tires. If we rotate tires we will keep
the rears from cupping, and the fronts from wearing too fast.
Q. Why do some tires cost more than others?
A. In every class of tires you will find a wide range of pricing. Some tires
last longer, some have more traction, some are of higher performance. Your
tire professional is the best person to fit your needs.
Q. When should I replace my vehicle's tires?
A. The head of a penny is about 2/32 of an inch, which is the same as the
wear bars on most tires. If you do not have the same feel in the rain or in
the turns, you may need to replace your tires.
Q. My tires have waves in the sidewall. Are the tires bad?
A. Sidewall plies have joints that overlap. The taller the sidewall, the
more you will notice the dent or wavy look of the sidewall. If you ever see
a knot, or bubble in the sidewall, replace the tire at once.
Q. Should I use special tires for my SUV?
A. The high center of gravity, along with the added weight of four-wheel
drive creates new challenges for the tires. Some SUVs need mud traction
while others just need good road manners. Look for the tire that will do the
best job for your needs. Select a tire that is designed for your SUV.
Q. How can I find out what wheels will fit my vehicle?
A. Wheels will be in two main groups. Car, which is FWD, or truck and SUV,
which will be RWD. This is a good time to look at plus one, two or three
sizes to help you perform to the max. Remember shorter sidewalls will ride
Q. How does weather affect my tires?
A. Weather is always a concern to your tires. Hot weather can be hard on the
tire itself, while cold weather will cause your tires to have less air.
Rain, snow, and ice are traction robbers, and you will need good tires to
take them all on.
Q. Can I change the size of my tires?
A. Yes you can go to a larger tire and wheel on almost every application.
The computers, anti-lock brakes, and fender openings all add up to a job
best left to professionals. You must also look at the tires ability to carry
the load of the car. With work, you can make your car look better and handle
Q. How do I properly care for and clean my tires?
A. Tires bloom as they age. The use of tire shine products that draw out the
oils of a tire will cause the tire to crack or crust on the exposed side.
Simple soap and water, with a little scrubbing on the whites will keep your
tires looking like new for years.
