Keeping the correct air pressure in your tires is as important as giving your engine a tune up. With the right amount of air pressure, tires wear longer, save fuel, enhance handling and prevent accidents.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Service
TPMS is an automated system that monitors the air pressure in a vehicle's tires. When the air pressure in one or more tires drops 25 percent or more below the required pressure, a dashboard warning indicator alerts the driver. TPMS detects rapid loss of air pressure, reduces the possibility of tire failure, and can help improve tire life and fuel economy. Beginning in 2008, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires all new passenger cars and light trucks to be equipped with TPMS systems. Discount Tire stores sell retrofit kits for older vehicles not factory equipped with a TPMS system. We also provide TPMS service, and stock TPMS rebuild kits and replacement parts.
Only Replacing Two Tires?
We recommends mounting them on the rear. Deeper tread with greater hydroplaning resistance helps new tires grip wet roads. The driver can steer to compensate for the lower wet traction of the worn front tires and safely maintain control.
For greater lateral stability and increased steering response, plus sizing is one of the easiest ways to achieve enhanced performance and improve the appearance of your vehicle. Converting to a plus 1 size would mean increasing the wheel diameter by 1" and selecting an appropriate tire to fit. It is important to note that although the wheel diameter is increasing, the overall diameter of the tire remains consistent.
For safety, tires are only repaired in accordance with RMA's (Rubber Manufacturers Association) Recommended Procedures.
When a wheel and tire are mounted together they are seldom joined at the one ideal spot. Each of these units, though they may be built to specification, can add to the slight error of the other. As they spin together, the tire and wheel are exerting forces simultaneously in different directions generating a vibration. Ride Matching measures these forces and calculates how a particular wheel and tire pairing should be matched. The source of this disturbance cannot be sensed during wheel balancing. The Ride Matching process takes a skilled operator approximately 20 minutes to perform on a set of tires and wheels. The process will improve ride quality, performance and wear.
