Tire Maintenance – Arlington VA
Our technicians are well trained when it comes to preserving the life of your tires. As part of our courtesy check, we inspect tires for unever wear and cupping. A majority of these problems can be prevented through routine tire rotations, wheel alignment, and properly balance the tires. Where your tire tread is low or worn to one side, it can lead to hazardous handling in a variety of situations. Don’t get caught at a State Safety Inspection with bad tires, let the professionals from our shop help you get the most out of your set of tires!
Wheel Alignment – Arlington VA
If you’ve recently hit a big pothole or curb and notice your car pulling to the left or to the right, it may be time for a wheel alignment. Having wheels out of alignment can cause premature wear of the tire tread, and end up costing you more in the long run if you are not getting the full life span out of your tires. Our alignment rack uses a state-of-the-art program, sensors, and feedback to get your wheels aligned back into factory spec.
Wheel Balancing – Arlington VA
If you are experiencing an excessive amount of vibration at highway speeds, one or more of your tires may need to be professionally balanced. An imbalanced tire will send a vibration through the steering column that can be felt by the driver, and even though it may not be detectable during city commuting, the imbalance is still present. Our state-of-the-art wheel balancer allows us to replicate driving conditions and accurately place wheel weights to crrect a wheel that is out of balance.
If your car is experiencing symptoms related to an out of balance wheel, don’t hesitate to contact one of our two locations in Falls Church VA and Arlington VA.
