Tire Installation and Wheel Balancing

Your vehicle's tires make constant contact with the road. Over time and with normal wear-and-tear, your tire becomes worn down. This can be dangerous when braking on wet or snow-covered roads. Hydroplaning occurs when the tire's grooves are so worn down that they don't channel water out from beneath the tread. When this happens, your treads only skim the water's surface and the steering wheel won't respond. Keep your tires in working condition.

We have specialized equipment to accommodate up to 26 inch wheels.

Purchase a set of four tires with us and we will rotate them for

FREE for the life of those tires.

How do you know if you need new tires?

  • Your tread depth is below 1/16 of an inch (1.6 millimeters). To get a rough idea of your tread depth, use a penny and insert it "head down" into the tread. If you can see Lincoln's entire head, you need new tires.
  • Your tread wear indicator bar is visible. Flat rubber bars run perpendicular to the tread. If you see them, it's time for new tires.
  • Your tire's sidewall is showing visible cracks or cuts. Take this seriously; your tires may soon start to leak.
  • Your tires have developed bulges or blisters. Weak spots on tires show up around blisters or bulges and can blow out your tires.

If you see any of these signs, you need to have them checked and replaced. We carry all brand name tires, and our SEMA/ASE Custom Wheel and Tire Specialist Certified technicians will install them properly.

How do I know if I need my wheels balanced?

Is your vehicle vibrating at certain speeds, say, between 50 and 70 mph? If so, chances are your wheel is out of balance. One section of your tire is heavier than the other because it's endured more exposure to the friction and heat of the road. Most people are very satisfied with the difference such a simple and inexpensive procedure makes.

Look for these signs, and if you find either one, come see us:
  • Scalloped, erratic wear pattern on tires.
  • Vibration in steering wheel, seat, or floorboard at certain speeds.

Come in to our shop, call, or email us, and we will assist you.
