Tires are perhaps one of the most crucial parts of any vehicle. They are what contacts the road. Depending on what wheel drive system your auto is equipped with you may notice that specific tires wear down faster than others.
The front tires on a vehicle that is front wheel drive are responsible for accelerating, steering, and helping stop your car. The front tires tend to wear down a lot faster than the tires located on the rear of the vehicle. It’s typical that, in this type of drive system, the rear wheel tires will last about twice as long as the front wheel tires will.
Unlike a front wheel drive system, a rear wheel drive system will have the opposite effect. Then with an all-wheel-drive vehicle, you may notice a slightly more even wear across all four tires.
No matter which drive system you have, AWD, FWD, or RWD, you should take your auto in for automotive tire service at regular intervals. At Ryan G. Motorworks, we are pleased to be among the top tire service shops in the Auburn area for German autos! We offer tire repair services in addition to tire replacements to help keep your vehicle safe on the road.
With tire service and repair we recommend that all of the tires should be ideally replaced at the same time. Not only is this safer for you, your auto, and others on the road, but will also allow you more time between needing tire replacements. If following your vehicle recommendation for tire rotation, you can ensure even wearing occurs across all tires.
You should follow the owner’s manual suggestions for your vehicle. Typically, most manufacturers state that having tires rotated is beneficial to the life of your tires in addition to steering and suspension components. An excellent rule of thumb is to rotate them with every other oil change or rotate them every three thousand to seven thousand miles. We can keep track of all your services, so you never have to wonder if it is time for your tire rotation service.
When a tire is improperly repaired, it may fail while you are driving at high speed and cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Flat and/or damaged tires should be repaired by qualified personnel. Just about any sharp object on the road can cause your car to have a flat tire. You should not attempt to fix a flat tire while the tire is still connected to the wheel. You have to inspect the inside of the tire for hidden damage. Otherwise, you risk further weakening the tire.
Punctures that are located within the tread area can damage a greater area of the tire (example: the inner sidewall). If you do not remove the tire, it will be harder to see all of the damage that has occurred. Having proper tire repair is crucial. Any puncture or injury that has happened to a tire will affect its performance or worse cause a blowout. With our tire repair shop services, we will inspect the tire first to make the determination if it is repairable. If found it can be repaired, we will inform you before starting any service.
