Are you having tire problems?

Do you know how to properly maintain your vehicle's tires? We do. Let us help you get your tires fixed, patched, replaced and running properly. Below are some common questions that you might have about tires. If there is anything missing, please fill out the form with any questions you may have.

  1. How often should I replace my tires?

  2. There are two main characteristics that show on a tire that will help you determine if they need to be changed. If your tire's tread reaches to 3/32", or if it is showing some cracking on the sidewall from the sun damage. If you are unsure that they need to be replaced, please bring them in to our service drive to have them checked out.

  3. How will I know if my tires need to be replaced?

  4. A simple visual inspection of the tread depth will help you determine if they need to be replaced. You may also be able to tell based off of performance. For example if you notice your tires are losing traction on braking or accelerating. If turning on corners too hard, you will notice the uneven wear of your treads. All of our services include a tire inspection.

  5. Why does my tire pressure matter?

  6. Proper tire pressure plays a big role in how long they last and how well they perform. Excessive tire pressure will wear out the center part of the tire and low tire pressure will cause outer and inner edge ear. It also causes the tires to generate heat which may lead to your tires failing at higher speeds.

  7. Stopping Distance: (I.e. With properly inflated tires, the tread contact with the pavement is maximized allowing your vehicle to stop within a shorter distance.)

    • How does it affect the ride and handling?

    • The higher the pressure the more you will feel the road (rough ride) the lower the pressure the softer the ride (less road noise)

    • How does it affect the fuel economy?

    • Low tire pressure will reduce the fuel economy of your vehicle.

    • How does it affect treadwear?

    • The tire pressure affects the gripping ability it has with the surface. If the pressure is too high, it may cause skidding or loss of control. Having too low of pressure reduces the ability of the tire to hold the wheel.

    • How does it affect the load bearing?

    • Low pressure will reduce the load bearing ability of the tire

  8. How do I determine the appropriate tire pressure for my car?

  9. The owner's manual, glove box lid or inside the driver door area will have the tire pressure information.

  10. How often and why should I rotate my tires?

  11. Toyota recommends a tire rotation every 5 months or 5,000 miles.

  12. Should I change my tires when the seasons change?

  13. Most tires today are all season tires. There is no need to replace them for the winter or summer.
  14. What do the letters and symbols mean on the sidewall of the tire? (I.e. P205/65R16)

  15. The letters on the tire give all of the required information. The Aspect Ratio is the ratio of the sidewall height to the Section Width. The sidewall height of this tire is 60% of the Section Width, or 123 mm. The higher (bigger) the number is, the softer the ride will be.Understand Your Tires with Help From Larry H.

    There is also a DOT number on the tire that will tell you when it was made. Good information to have.
