Tire Replacement Services Offered at Our Tire Stores
Tires wear out over time. Sometimes, our driving habits can make them wear out faster such as braking too forcefully, accelerating too quickly, driving fast, skipping regular tire rotations and alignments, and even having the wrong tire pressure. All of these factors and more can contribute to tires wearing out early.
While you can extend the life of your tires by taking the right measures such as keeping up with routine tire maintenance, the time will come when you need to have your tires replaced. At our auto repair and tire stores in Columbia, Jefferson City, and St. Louis, MO, we provide quality, affordable tire replacement services to keep your vehicle safe to drive and performing at its best.
Identifying Tire Problems
To identify tire problems early on, before they evolve and become more serious issues later down the road, it is crucial to know what to look for.
First, look at each tire carefully. How does the tread look? Is it uneven? Uneven tire wear may be caused by suspension or steering issues or poor wheel alignment. It may also be caused by too much or too little air in the tires.
Second, listen to your car. Do you hear abnormal or louder noises coming from your wheel well? If the roads sound louder, your tire may be experiencing uneven wear.
Third, feel the differences. Are you noticing a rougher ride or vibrations in your steering wheel when driving? Even just the start of a new tire issue often causes a completely different feel to your driving.
More than likely, you will be able to identify the major issues that signal that it is time to invest in new tires. Over time, these major issues can lead to a tire blowout—one of the most serious tire troubles. If you have ever experienced a tire blowout, then you know how scary it can be, as drivers can often lose control of their vehicle in those moments afterward.
