We can state the importance of tires simply: Your vehicle cannot go very well without them. Tires are your connection to the road. Tires can have issues that are often simply from wearing out. Here at Pro Automotive, we can help both educate you on what to look for with wearing tires and troubleshoot your tire issues, including repairing or replacing them. We have two locations for your convenience in Dudley, MA and Webster, MA.
Before we talk about how you can tell your tires are having a problem, let’s talk about routine maintenance. Regular car maintenance includes oil changes, tire rotations, brakes, filter changes, and more. We offer same day service, so many of the services we include can be done quickly. Our ASE Certified Technicians have the knowledge to tell you of potential upcoming issues and offer a keen eye for inspections.
Issues with tires
Starting and Stopping
Poor tires can make taking off and stopping difficult. Unfortunately, good brakes cannot save poor tires. Have you stopped later than you thought in traffic or in poor conditions? You should probably get your tires looked at by us here at Pro Automotive. Bad tires that are still “working” are almost worse than flat tires. They can lure you into being over confident in your ability to stop.
Worn treads can be a major issue for tires, keeping in mind that your treads are supposed to wear over time. While there are home tests for tire depth, including using a penny, we suggest you bring it to us as part of your regular care. Many people measure depth in only one place while you should measure from multiple spots.
Uneven tread wear can result in your vehicle feeling like it’s shaking. The issue is that if tires are wearing differently, the whole vehicle will slowly become out of balance. Getting your tires rotated is necessary to keep them wearing evenly. Tire rotations are routine and Pro Automotive would love to help.
Leaks are annoying whether they are fast or slow. Having to refill your tires often is a sign that you could use help from us at Pro Automotive.
