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 #2380 in Puyallup, WA.

Why Are Your Tires So Important?

The question of "why are tires so important?" typically comes up when the need for a tire repair shop arises. It is a question that deserves some thought. Nearly every aspect of your vehicle's performance, including braking, acceleration, steering, traction, and handling, are all largely dependent on tire performance. Issues with the tread, balance, or stability of your tires and wheels could affect your control of your vehicle in an emergency situation. Thus, if you suspect any problems, you should visit Meineke #2380 in Puyallup, WA for repair or tire change service right away.

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 #2380 in Puyallup, WA may help you avoid a high tire replacement cost.

Why Proper Maintenance of Tires and Wheels Is Important

Tires are vital to the function and safety of your car or truck. The ridges and patterns that make up the tread of your tire are what help it grip the road and shed water to increase traction. When a tire's tread wears down, your vehicle no longer has the same traction and can become more unpredictable or more difficult to handle safely. Underinflated or overinflated tires often cause sidewall damage that can be dangerous, which can lead to sudden tire explosions on the road. Your tires should always be kept properly inflated.

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 #2380 in Puyallup, WA to help you safely get back on the road.
