Tire Change Services Save the Day

People depend on their cars every day to get them where they need to go. The fast-paced world of today does not allow for much down time. If a tire goes flat, it needs changed quickly.

Causes

There are many things that can cause a flat such as:

  • Punctures
  • Road hazards
  • Excessive pressure
  • Intentional deflation
  • Worn rubber
  • Damaged valve stems
  • Cracks

Nearly anyone that has ever driven a car has experienced a flat.

 Danger

Drivers should always do a quick walk around the car before heading out for the day. Driving with little to no air can do significant damage and is unsafe. Taking those few minutes can make driving saver and save drivers money.

Visual Wear

It can be difficult to assess the wear and tear on a car. A good way is to place a penny into the tread and see if it touches Abe Lincoln’s head. If not, it may be time to change out the tires.

Cracks

Cracks can appear on the sidewall over time. This is often caused from the damaging rays of the sun or parking too close to a curb. A change service can evaluate them and make suggestions on what needs to be done.

Services Available

Fixing a flat is just one of the many services that are available from a tire business including:

  • Routine rotations
  • Air pressure check
  • Wheel balancing
  • Alignment
  • Installation

They usually offer a variety of car repair options.

Replacement 

There are many things to consider when buying replacements. One major factor when considering only replacing one is the wear. All the wheels, especially the one directly opposite, should have similar tread to ensure a smooth ride. Replacing all four if need be is the best option, but one can be done if it is damaged.

Spares

Spare tires are one of the most important things to carry inside the car. They may be needed in case of a flat. There is no way to predict an emergency.

Spare Inspection

Spares are often tucked away inside the trunk of a car and no one notices it until it is needed. A change service can check its condition and its air pressure. This should be done on a regular basis to ensure it is in working condition.

Tires are a vital part of a car and they need to be kept in good repair.
