Wheel Bearing

Wheel bearings are a set of small steel balls or rollers that support the wheel and allow it to spin freely.  Located at the center of the wheel inside the hub, they reduce friction by allowing the hub to roll around the axle instead of against it. Proper lubrication of the wheel bearings and regular check…

Wheel Balancing

Often confused with wheel alignment, wheel balancing ensures that your tires will spin vibration free.  Irregularities and imperfections in the manufacturing of both  wheels and  tires can result in heavy spots. Balancing your wheels minimizes the potential vibration  caused by those imperfections generally felt in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboard.  Wheel balancing is accomplished…

TPMS

Most vehicles today are equipped with a Tire-Pressure-Monitoring System or TPMS. The TPMS is an electronic system used to monitor the air pressure inside your tires and alert you if they become under-inflated. If your “low pressure” warning light comes on it means your tire pressure has dropped 23.25em or more below the manufacturer’s recommended…

Tire Rotation

Rotating your tires is an easy and inexpensive way to minimize wear and extend the life of your tires. This process of moving your tires from one side of the vehicle to the other, moving them from front to back, or a combination of both, will minimize wear that is ‘position specific.’ We recommend regular tire…

Tire Replacement

Let’s face it. Tires don’t last forever. And the two main reasons for replacement are wear and damage. There are several ways to inspect your tires. You can visually check their general condition and look for abnormal and uneven wear patterns. You could also perform the “Penny Test” or check to see if the “wear…
