Tire Purchase & Installation
All-Season Tires are a good option for a mild all-year long climate.
They can be used for spring, summer, fall and winter driving.
They handle light snow or freezing rain and give solid traction in a wide variety of conditions suitable for everyday driving.
These tires have the symbol M + S on them.
This means Mud and Snow and are considered the minimum legal requirement.
Winter Tires are the best option for driving in snow, ice, and temperatures lower than 7 degrees Celsius.
They are made of a special rubber compound that grip the road and give better control and improved traction in colder weather.
You can’t travel the mountain passes without them from October 1 to April 30.
These tires have the 3-peaked mountain/snowflake on them.
Summer Tires are also known as performance tires.
These tires are good for sports cars or luxury SUV’s.
They have a softer compound so when it heats up the tire becomes sticky and increases the grip which allows you to corner better and stay in contact with the road.
Tire rotation is when a vehicle’s front and rear tires and wheels are removed and moved to a different position. This is to ensure even tread wear and to extend the life of your tires.
Do you have tires that are not on their wheels?
We can help with that!
Our Hunter Revolution Walkaway tire changer uses a computer to assist with the mounting process and the automatic procedure protects expensive rims and tires. Polymer tools ensure scratch free operation.
Tire balancing provides a smooth ride and assures even tire wear by properly adjusting the tire weight distribution around the vehicle.
The common symptoms of out-of-balance tires are uneven and faster tread wear, poor fuel economy, and vibration in the steering wheel, the floorboard or the seat that gets worse at faster speeds.
Tire balancing is different from wheel alignment, which involves the angle of the wheels and their relation to the ground.
Road Force Balancing
Today’s vehicles come with some impressive wheel sizes. Plus, you can add custom wheels for an enhanced design and look. But with bigger wheels come shorter tire sidewalls, which can be more sensitive to road vibration forces. A road-force balance can help alleviate those issues.
No wheel and tire assembly are ever perfect, and vibrations can happen. Our Hunter Road Force Elite Wheel Balancer
uses a load-roller to simulate road pressure as an efficient way to identify even the slightest inconsistencies. This, in turn, easily provides a technician with a diagnosis of those variations in the tire and wheel assembly, allowing them to make adjustments that mitigate any vibration issues.
Puncture by a sharp object such as a nail, screw or glass can usually be repaired rather than replacing your tire. Other common reasons for a flat tire are defective or damaged valve stems, tire bead leaks, or even separation of the tire and rim. We can assess your tire and advise you on the best way to get you back on the road.
