Tire Repair – Avoid Blowouts

Tire Repair And Maintenance is Crucial

Tires are the only part of your vehicle that comes in direct contact with the road; needless to say, they are essential when it comes to safety! The engine and braking system work directly through your vehicle’s tires, making them one of the most imperative safety features. Driving on a set of worn tires puts you at serve risk of a blowout, which could result in an accident. Hydroplaning also happens as a result of bald tires. There’s no tread to redirect the water. This is crucial especially in those wet winter days in Wilmington, De. Proper Tire Service is a must.

Tire Repair – Don’t Ignore The Signs


If you can’t tell by the way your car is driving, it may help to just take a look. Obviously If your tires look like racing slicks, it’s time to service them. If you’re not sure its time for service consider The Penny Test. If you place a penny with Lincoln’s head facing downwards between the tread blocks, you should not see the top of his head. If you can, the tread is worn down to or below 2/32 of an inch its time to service your tires. Another easy way to determine the tread depth is to stop by to either of our locations and have a mechanic assess your tires to see if you need tire repair or replacement. If you need new ones we will provide options so that you get the best fit for your budget and your driving style.

How can I get the most life out of my tires?

Most tires last about three to four years or 45,000 miles. Proper tire service is the best way to get the most life out of them. Making sure they have the right amount of pressure and rotating them every 6,000 miles can help extend their life. Keeping up with the simple and inexpensive tire service will prolong the life of your tires immensely!
