Tires and Wheels

The tires on your vehicle are very important to the overall performance of your vehicle, they affect steering, braking, handling, and of course traction. The manufacturer of your car or truck who engineered the vehicle has specified a specific size, speed rating and inflation for the best tire performance in all of the categories listed above. There are upgraded or better tires that are available for your vehicle, let us help and suggest a suitable replacement when it is time.

Customarily, if a penny can be placed on its edge in the deepest spot of your tread and it doesn’t cover any of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to replace your tires. It’s also time to replace a tire if there are any cuts or damage to the side wall. Proper wheel alignment, regular tire rotations, proper inflation and wheel balance are items that will affect the life and performance of your ties. We perform all of these services with the latest in tire technology.

Vehicles now also have tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) to advise you of low air pressure in your tires. These systems can fail from time to time or lose communications. We have the tools available to diagnose, replace and re-program the sensors in case of a failure. Also, don't forget to check the pressure in, and condition of, the spare tire to defy Murphy's Law, so it will be in good condition if or when you need it!
