When it is time to purchase a new set of tires, we never recommend that you simply purchase the first ones you see. Instead, your tire purchase should take into account your vehicle and driving habits. Scotty’s Automotive stocks a wide range of tires and our experts will help you find the one that is right for your vehicle and your budget.
If you have picked up a nail or noticed a slow leak in your tire, you may think that you need to immediately replace it, but that may not be the case. Depending on the size, type, and location of the damage, there is a chance that our tire experts may be able to actually repair it. Saving you money by preventing you from having to purchase a new tire or set of tires before you were planning to.
Our team of ASE-Certified mechanics are dedicated to your safety and will never repair your tire if we don’t believe it to be safe.
You have heard that having your tires rotated is a good idea, but why? Anytime you purchase a new set of tires, the goal is to make them last for as long as possible and to have them wear out at the same rate so you can purchase your next set all at the same time, as well.
In reality, it is common for front tires to wear out faster than the rear ones due to their role in the acceleration and steering of your vehicle. To facilitate all four tires wearing evenly and at the same time, We recommend having your tires rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
The alignment of your wheels is another thing that is crucial to how your tires wear over time. When your tires are not meeting the road at the appropriate angle, they are subject to excessive and uneven wear. Proper alignment also optimizes your vehicle’s handling and drivability. At Scotty’s Automotive, we recommend that you have your wheel aligned every 2 or 3 years or anytime you notice a change in steering or handling.
