Tires are like shoes for a car. If you go cheap on them, you’ll definitely feel the difference. Quality tires improve your car’s performance and handling. That’s why it’s important to choose the right set of tires for your vehicle and have them regularly maintained by a qualified professional. Keeping your tires in good condition not only saves you money in the long run but also helps to keep you and your family safe on the road.
What is a Tire Rotation?
One of the best things you can do to maintain your tires is to have them rotated on a regular basis. Tire rotation is the process of moving the tires from one side of the vehicle to the other, front to back, and sometimes even diagonally. This helps to evenly distribute wear and tear, prolonging the life of your tires and reducing the likelihood of a blowout.
When Should I Rotate My Tires?
There is no one “right” answer to this question, as the frequency of tire rotation will vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of vehicle you own, your driving habits, and the condition of your tires. However, most experts recommend rotating your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or at least twice a year to prevent experiencing issues with traction or uneven wear.
Proper Tire Repair Guidelines
When it comes to car safety, you can’t afford to take any chances. That’s why at Juke Auto, we strictly follow the U.S. Tire Manufacturer Association’s (USTMA) guidelines to make sure that your tires are repaired to the highest possible standards.
Demount the Tire
To properly inspect and repair a tire, it is necessary to remove it from the rim. This allows us to check the damage and remove any embedded objects that may have caused the puncture.
If the damage to the tire is only on the tread, which is the “middle” part of the tire that directly comes in contact with the road, we can usually repair it. However, if the damage extends to the tire’s sidewall, the tire will need to be replaced.
Size of the Damage
We only repair tire punctures not larger than 1/4-inch (6mm). Larger holes and punctures cannot be repaired because they can result in loss of air pressure, decreased fuel efficiency, and an increased chance of a blowout.
If your tire is already worn out, we will not be able to repair it because the risk of tire failure is too high. Worn tires are those that have less than 2/32 inch (1.6mm) of tread depth.
Location of the Damage
If the location of the damage is close to an area that was already repaired before, that section of the tire may not hold the repair patch, which means that the tire will need to be scrapped.
Plug and Patch
The proper way to repair a hole is to plug and patch it. A plug is a small, solid piece of rubber that is inserted into the hole, while the patch is a sticky adhesive that is applied over the plug to seal it in place.
Tire Replacement Services
If your tire can’t be repaired, we can replace it with a new one. We offer a wide selection of tires from some of the leading brands in the market, so you can be sure to find one that fits your needs and budget. We also offer tire installation and balancing services, so you can rest assured that your new tires will be installed correctly and evenly.
