You get up for work, follow your normal morning routine and as you are about to hop into your car, you notice your tyre is flat. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, however you just remembered that four months ago you got a flat tyre on the side of the highway, and now your spare tyre has also deserted you. You are in a bit of a pickle.
You manage to hitch a ride with a friend to get your tyres sorted out, however he asks you the million dollar question, “Where do you want to go?”
The answer is clear, you need to go to a tyre specialist. Here comes the big kicker, what makes a tyre specialist? A tyre specialist is someone that can provide you with multiple products revolving around your tyres while taking your best interests to heart. The kind of services that they could offer you are; Wheel and Tyre Replacement, Wheel Balancing, Nitrogen Inflation, Puncture Repairs, Tyre Rotation and Wheel Alignment.
All of these things are vitally important and each play their role. For example, wheel balancing, wheels that are not balanced or are out of balance generally produce a vibration that is uncomfortable to drive and results in premature wearing of suspension and steering components.
Wheel Alignment, maintaining proper wheel alignment is essential to avoid unnecessary wear on your tyres, steering, suspension and brakes. Accurate wheel alignment optimises driving stability, maximises tyre life and improves your vehicle’s overall handling performance.
Wheel rotation is another one that is often overlooked. Rotating tires is a critical maintenance step because it extends the life of your tyres and greatly increases your safety on the road. Additionally, many tire mileage warranties require rotation to keep the warranty valid.
Your tyre specialist will also be able to help keep you on the road for longer by ensuring your tyres and tread are always in good working order.
