Tire Services & Wheel Repair in Redwood City, CA 94063

Tires & Wheels

What Makes Up A Wheel?

A wheel is composed of the inner spokes, the rim that connects the spokes and the outside tire. Wheels are connected by an axle so they can work in pairs to allow your vehicle to move. The tread on the tires protects the inner portion of the rim and helps the wheel grip the road to increase safety and efficiency. Without wheels, your car would not be able to function. This is why keeping on top of tire rotation service and other maintenance is so important. To learn more about wheels and how they work, contact Meineke #699 in Redwood City, CA.

Why Is Maintaining Your Tires Important?

You know that you need your tires in good working order to drive your vehicle. So, perhaps a better question than why your tires are important is why you should maintain them before you're forced into frantically searching for "flat tire repair near me." The average car weighs over 4,000 pounds, which is a lot of weight sitting on your tires. Differences in inflation between tires causes your vehicle's weight to be distributed unevenly. Over time, that uneven weight distribution can lead to issues with your vehicle's balance, which then affects its safety and performance. Thus, following a routine rotation service is vital. You'll find such a service here at Meineke #699 in Redwood City, CA.

What Are The Signs Telling You Tire Repair Is Needed?

Uneven tread heights and issues with vehicle stability at high speeds could each be a sign that you're in need of a tire repair or tire change service. However, these signs are often easy to miss. Fortunately, you vehicle will often tell you when its tires need some TLC through your in-dash tire pressure light. If and when it turns on, you should immediately stop and see which of your tires is over or underinflated. If the sensor continues to illuminate even after adding air to the tire, taking it into Meineke #699 in Redwood City, CA may help you avoid a high tire replacement cost. Be sure to check and see if you also need a tire pressure sensor replacement while you're there.

Consequences of Poor Maintenance

Neglecting to inspect or replace your tires can be dangerous in the long-run. If your tires are worn down, you may have difficulties handling your vehicle during adverse weather. Sleet, rain, and ice can easily send a vehicle with little tread spinning. During rainstorms, your vehicle will be more susceptible to hydroplaning, and you may experience longer stopping times and distances. Both of these issues have the potential to cause severe injury to drivers and passengers. Naturally, we want to help you avoid such situations. Contact our Redwood City, CA, and Meineke #699 to schedule a professional inspection of your tires.

Is it Time for New Tires?

Many of our customers ask themselves, "When should I visit a tire repair shop near me?" The answer depends on the age and current condition of your tires, your personal driving habits, and the condition of your local roadways. Individuals who drive on poorly paved and broken roadways will have to replace their tires earlier than most drivers. If you drive long distances at relatively high speeds, you may need to have your tires inspected once or twice yearly. If your tires are over ten-years-old, it is definitely time to consider a replacement. Get in touch with our Redwood City, CA, Meineke #699 store if you have specific questions.
