Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Torbeck's Auto Repair, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Torbeck's Auto Repair.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Torbeck's Auto Repair has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 513-761-1444 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Torbeck's Auto Repair, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Torbeck's Auto Repair to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
I've been going to Dan's shop for years now and there's no one I trust more than Dan. Great service, great people. Dan's the man for your car care.
Fast, great service. Clean garage and very friendly. Highly recommend them.
Thanks Dan for your help! You guys did an awesome job, appreciate it.
Outstanding. I haven't been here for 20 years, and Dan still remembers me, where I worked, and what I drove. When I showed up to get my car worked on, he was just leaving to take another customer home, himself. Customer service is number one here, the way it should be. Service quality is as excellent, all ASE certified, and will stand behind their work.
Fabulous customer service, great value. Will definitely be my new go to place. Thank you Dan and Amanda for taking care of the details and making it easy.
