Tire Rotations and Balances at Tregembo Motors
Our Pittsburgh auto repair technicians can help you pick the perfect tires for your vehicle. We have one of the best selection of tires in the area. Whenever you bring your car in for service, we recommend having your tires checked for excess wear and tear. Regular rotations and balances can keep your tires in top working order and allow you to get the most miles out of them.
What is Tire Rotation
Rotating your tires is the regular practice of changing the position of all your tires. When you rotate your tires it preserves the balance, handling and traction of the tires. In addition, the tires wear more evenly and you get the maximum mileage out of your tires. We recommend rotating your tires every 6 months or 6,000 miles for best results.
What is a Tire Balance
Balancing you tires minimizes tire bounce and provides a smoother ride. It also improves traction, steering control and extends the life of the tires. When your tires are out-of-balance, you will typically notice a vibration or shake that becomes worse as the vehicle's speed increases. There is no certain speed that will show the vibration, that all depends on the tires and the vehicle. Generally though, the vibration or shake usually starts in at 40 to 50 mph and becomes more intense as the speed climbs. If you notice your car shaking at higher speeds, bring it by our auto repair shop near Pittsburgh. Our friendly technicians can find the source, whether you need a balance or new tires entirely.
