What are the different types of tire services available?

When you own a car, there are bound to be problems here and there. Whether it's with the tires, the battery, the brakes, or something else, maintenance and repair are all part of keeping your vehicle in good shape. Maintaining your vehicle's tires is one of the more common tasks that you'll have to deal with, but you may want to know more about what type of tire services there are. Here are the three main different kinds of tire services that car owners should be aware of.

Tire Rotation

You need to get your tires rotated regularly so that you maintain even wear and tear on them. Tires wear more heavily in the front. By rotating them, you ensure that these ones don't wear out too fast. Usually, the service technician will move the ones the front tires to the back and the back tires to the front, unless there is an issue, and they move a couple from left to right. Your service professional will know the best method for your vehicle.
Experts recommend getting a tire rotation every six months or every 9,500 to 13,000 kilometers.
During a rotation, your service technician will also inspect your tires for any damage that would indicate you need a new tire. In addition, they will check for added wear on one tire that would indicate other problems, such as your alignment being "off."
So, your tire rotation not only saves your tires, but can save you money if they catch an underlying problem you didn't know you had.

Tire Change/New Tire

Eventually, after driving for a substantial amount of time, you're going to need a tire change. Normally tires will require replacement after approximately 40,000 to 80,000 kilometers. With all the driving, your tire tread will wear down, making your vehicle unsafe to drive. You don't want to continue with worn out tires.

 

Tire Change/New Tire

 

When you come in to have your tires changed, the tire professional will examine the tread depth using a gauge for best accuracy. If you drive on wet or snowy roads, you won't want your tread depts to be any less than 5/32". If your vehicle's tires are below that, the service technician will help you select tires that match your needs. Some of the choices include:

 

  • Summer tires
  • Winter/snow tires
  • All-weather or all-season tires

 

Your tire technician will be able to help you make a decision as to what type of tires are best for your driving situation.

 

Tire Repair

In some cases, a tire can be repaired when it becomes damaged. Once the repair technician inspects it on the inside, they can remove the damaged material, fill the void with rubber, and seal the innerliner with a repair unit. However, if there is serious damage in the sidewall of the tire, such as a puncture, then it is not repairable. You will need a new tire.
