Tire Services in Germantown, MD
One of the most important parts of your vehicle are the tires that it runs on every day. Making sure that they are in great shape can keep you on the road much longer. Tires that are taken care of poorly can cause you an untold number of problems. This is why we are so proud to offer our tire services to the Germantown and surrounding areas.
Replacement of worn tires is the most common problems that people come into our shop looking to fix. Worn down treads, broken tires, strange bulges, and even tears are all extremely common. We can work with you to find the best, and often the cheapest, options to replace your tires and get you back onto the road. Freshly replaced tires will run for quite a few miles and will generally keep your car in better shape than older tires as well. As far as tire sales go, we can outfit your vehicle with whichever brand tire you prefer or whatever fits your budget. We work with every brand, from Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin, to Toyo, Kumho and Yokohama, and every brand in-between.
Wheel alignment is the next most common service that we offer. When your wheels get out of alignment they begin wearing down at different rates. This can cause damage to the underside of your car, problems with your steering, and can even make a new pair of tires almost useless. Alignment is a quick and easy task that will extend the life of your tires and the life of your car.
Tire rotation keeps your tires wearing evenly. Most cars won’t go through tires at an even rate. Moving them around to the places where they are needed the most can extend the life of many tires and help you get the best performance out of your car as well. We recommend getting this done at least twice a year. This ensures that you get the longest life out of your tires before they need to be replaced.
Tire balancing is another very critical service we provide for the maintenance of your tires and vehicle overall. Your automobile should have its tires balanced whenever a wheel is first mounted with a new tire as well as every 4,000 miles thereafter of use. Unbalanced tires can put uneven pressure on treads which can cause strain on wheel bearings and the cars suspension. It can also result in vibration in the steering wheel, seat or floorboard at highway speeds of about 40mph or more.
Repair is just one of the facts of life when it comes to tires. Running over a nail, hitting some glass on the road, and mysterious little holes are all very common. Each and every once of these issues can be fixed rather quickly without the need to replace the tire. This gets you more use out of them, keeps you safe on the road, and can prevent you from having a blowout later on while you are driving.
You should always bring your car in if you notice a tire losing air as the fix will cost much less and keep you safer than if you were to keep driving on it. We can perform general checks on your tires and give you suggestions about repair, replacement, alignment, and any other services as well. Usually these will take no more than 30 minutes and can be done on a drive-in basis. Getting your tires checked anytime you feel that there might be a problem is a good practice to keep.
Overall, our tire services cover anything that you could ever need when it comes to your wheels. Keeping you safe, on the road, and well within your budget. Give us a call or stop in today for a quick check and find out if your wheels are all that they should be or if you have questions about any of our many other tire and auto repair services.
