Have you ever stopped to think how much contact your car actually has with the road? Your car (and YOU) stay on the road because of 4 hand-sized pieces of rubber compound. Let’s keep your tires properly inflated and rotated. And let’s replace your tires when the tread gets worn. But there’s more to it than that. Your tires can also be an early warning system for other problems.
Are they worn on only one side? An alignment will help to solve that problem and improve your car’s fuel efficiency.
Does your car shake a certain speeds? It may need a wheel balance. A very slight difference in the weight from one half of your tire to the other can create a powerful vibration at high speeds.
Worn shocks can create other difficulties with your tires.
Here at Jim Dickinson Auto Tech, we like to see your tires and know what to look for. Bring them in for a visit.
