Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Rick's Auto Repair, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Rick's Auto Repair has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 863-682-2791 if you have questions, or schedule an appointment so we can evaluate your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Rick's Auto Repair to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
