Your tires are the only part of the car that has direct contact with the road. Tires affect your vehicle handling, ride, braking, and safety. For optimum performance, tires must have the correct air pressure, tread depth, balance and the wheels of the vehicle must be properly aligned.
Checking your tires on a regular basis is an important step in protecting your safety and your automotive investment. Ideally, tire inspections should be performed monthly. If you drive over potholes and debris in the road, live in a cold climate, or drive long distances regularly, then you should inspect your tires more often.

- *Note: If the difference between the front tire tread depth and the rear tire tread depth is less than or equal to 2/32", a standard tire rotation may be performed. If the tread depth differential is greater than 2/32, the two tires with the greatest amount of remaining tread must be placed on the rear axle.
- *Note: An out-of-balance wheel will typically create a vibration or shake that becomes progressively worse as the vehicle's speed increases. The speed at which the vibration first becomes apparent will vary depending on the size and weight of the tires and wheels, the size and weight of the vehicle, the sensitivity of the steering and suspension, and the amount of imbalance. The vibration or shake usually starts in at 40 to 50 mph and becomes more intense as your speed increases.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
- *Note: When servicing a hybrid vehicle, it is usually necessary to remove the trunk access panel in order to gain entrance to power supply, shut off and reconnection. Additional service fees may apply.

• Replaces tires that are 6 years or older.

• Air pressure should be set according to the placard on the door of your vehicle.
• Tire lose 1-2lbs. of air each month. Air pressure should be checked every four weeks.
• Proper air pressure improves tire wear and gas mileage.
• Proper air pressure improves handling.
• Proper air pressure reduces tire failure, accidents and possible injury.
*Maintenance is key. Ask about our extended programs to save you money.
A bubble is the result of an impact or industry termed "Road Hazard". An impact is caused by several contributing conditions including, rough roads, potholes, or any type of impact. These impacts cause linings in the tire to break and trap air between them causing a "bubble". This is an unsafe condition and the tire should be replaced immediately. This is not a manufacturers defect so be sure to ask about our Road Hazard Warranty Program.
