If your tires are worn, prompt replacement is absolutely essential. Not only is a certain amount of tire tread a legal requirement (here in Texas the legal minimum is 2/32”), bald tires are dangerous! In addition, particularly if your tires have worn unevenly, you can end up with a vehicle that handles badly and uses far more gas than it needs to. We believe we are the best place locally for new tires, offering an exceptional range at highly competitive prices.

Tire Service Specialists with Great Tips on Tire Maintenance

You can save a significant amount of money over the lifetime of your vehicle simply by taking that little bit of extra time to care for your tires, increasing their lifespan by a noticeable amount. Regular inspection of your tires is vital – not only can you check for problems such as loose wheel nuts, you can also spot signs of wear and check for visible rips, scrapes, adhesions or other forms of damage that need rapid rectification. In many circumstances, a timely tire repair is far cheaper than a replacement, so a scheduled tire check makes sense.

Tire pressures should be checked once a week – remember to vary the pressure should you have a heavier (or lighter) load than usual. Take care when driving – gentle acceleration, braking and cornering can really save wear on your tires. Should you spot any problems, including issues with alignment, drop your car or truck off to our tire shop near your location and we will be happy to sort them out for you. We also offer the opportunity for our customers to enjoy a complementary alignment and rotation for your car or truck.

How to Measure Your Tires’ Tread

This simple measuring procedure can be one using either a quarter or a penny. When you have a penny, put it against the tread, on the inside. Check to see if Lincoln’s head is obscured by the tread – if it is, you still have more than 2/32” of tread (the legal limit). If you place a quarter into several tread grooves across the tire and Washington’s head is covered by the tread you have more than 4/32” of tread depth remaining. It’s important to remember that for safe driving in wet weather, you need at least 4/32” of tread remaining – any less and the water won’t be able to run easily through the grooves in the tire. If you use the penny again, and looking at the Lincoln Memorial, if the memorial is covered by the tread you have more than 6/32” of tread depth remaining.
