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 #1723 in Littleton, CO.

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 #1723 in Littleton, CO.

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 #1723 in Littleton, CO 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.

What Happens if You Avoid Rotating Your Tires?

A flat tire leaves you stranded, pure and simple. Yet there are other reasons why you should ask yourself "Is there a good option for tire repair near me?" long before you ever get a flat. Avoiding routine tire rotations won't necessarily keep your vehicle from driving (up until excessive wear causes a flat, that is), yet it does limit their performance lifetime. Given the significant financial investment your tires represent, wouldn't you want to get the most out of them? Contact us at Meineke #1723 in Littleton, CO to learn how a low tire rotation can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Signs Your Tires Need To Be Replaced

The great thing about tires is that they usually show clear signs when they need to be replaced or serviced. Damaged side walls may be cracked and broken if the tire is old or failing. Tread on the tire may also seem noticeably low, further indicating the need for a tire repair service. In severe cases, your tires may be so damaged, you can feel or see the belts, or insides, of the tire. Wear on one side, or not enough wear along both sides of your tire also indicates a problem. If any of these happen to your vehicle, immediately contact Meineke #1723 in Littleton, CO to help you safely get back on the road.
