Johnny's Automotive offers state of the art tire services to help you prolong the life of your tires
Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires do not have a good grip on the pavement. Since 2006, Johnny's Automotive has helped drivers throughout the Lakeland area choose the right tire for their vehicle and driving style.
Johnny's Automotive offers state of the art tire services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Johnny's Automotive.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Johnny's Automotive has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
