TIRES

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 anti-lock 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.


Tire Inspection
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.

Tire Rotation
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Absolute Auto Repair Center, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from 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 Absolute Auto Repair Center 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.

    Another local garage failed my emergency brakes during annual inspection. I was a little skeptical so I brought my vehicle to Absolute for a second opinion. I was so glad I did. They found nothing wrong with the brakes, saving me the cost of unneeded repairs. Additionally, they checked all the vehicle systems and sent me an email detailing any future repairs I might need. This was color-coded, based on how urgent the needed repairs were. They also took photos so I could see what they talking about. As a former tech geek, I was impressed. I would definitely recommend Absolute to everyone for auto repairs. They are honest and dependable.

    I came in with an unfixable, damaged tire and drove out the next day with a brand new one. Stephanie was great at the front desk and the people who installed the new tire did everything they were supposed to do. I'll go back for sure.

    Very friendly staff. Every time I come in I always feel that they take great care of my car as well as educate me about what's being done to it. They don't take advantage of you, they're real about what needs to be done and what can wait.
