Maintaining the health of your tyres is important for overall safety to you and your family when driving. It is essential that your tyres have the right level of inflation and tread at all times. That’s why Pro Auto Performance offers a full range of tyre services.
5 cents for Your Thoughts and Possibly for New Tyres and Balancing
An easy way to check whether you need new tyres is to measure the tread depth with a 5 cent coin. Place the coin with the top of the head side facing down in the grooves. If you can see the top of the head side, it’s most likely time to get a new set of tyres from Pro Auto Performance.
Todays tyres also have “wear bars” molded into the tread that show a cross-tyre pattern when the tread wears down to a designated level. By the time you see the cross-tyre pattern, it’s definitely time to replace the tyre.
The balance of pressure within your tyres will determine how effectively your tyres perform on roads. Too little or too much will affect how optimally your tyres make contact with the road. The right balance of pressure will improve fuel costs as your car is travelling efficiently, as well as the tread will wear more evenly. Pro Auto Performance will check the tyre pressure and determine what its optimal level should be.
Tyre Rotation Service
Many factors can affect your cars traction on the road, with the main culprit being improper alignment. Factors like improper alignment of your tyres will most likely result in an uneven wear across the tread pattern. It is advised that regular tyre rotations are performed to help evenly distribute wear — extending the life of your tyres whilst maximizing traction on all four wheels and helping prevent flat tyres. Pro Auto Performance mechanics will inspect and consult you on the current circumstance of your tyres.
