Tire Repair & Replacement
Although identifying when you need new tires is important, tire repair and maintenance can also be very valuable. Whether you need a patch because a nail punctured your tire, or you had a flat tire on the interstate, our team at America’s Service Station of Alpharetta can help. Click here to schedule an appointment.
After evaluating your tire, we’ll let you know your options and provide a recommendation. If we decide to patch your tire, we follow the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association (RMA) standards to ensure your patched tire is safe for the road. If you need a new tire, we have variety of affordable options.
Tire Alignment & Rotation
Our goal is to keep your vehicle safe for the road and to maximize you car's performance. Ensuring your tires are properly aligned, rotated and inflated will not only increase your car’s efficiency, but it will also save you money on gas. These are the three keys to tire longevity:
- Proper Tire Inflation – On average, your tires loose about 1psi (pound per square inch) per month. And, extreme temperature changes can greatly impact your tire pressure. Monitor your car’s psi each month. The recommended PSI can be found on your tire.
- Proper Tire Alignment – If you notice that one of your tires is bulging or there is uneven tire wear amongst your tires, this may be a sign that your tires are not properly aligned. Let our tire repair experts take a look to see what we can do to help your tires last longer.
- Proper Tire Rotation – Getting your tires rotated each time you have your oil changed extends the life of your tires. Be sure to check your car’s manufacturer recommendation as well.
New Tires & Tire Replacement
How do you know if you need new tires? Try using the “penny tip.” If you stick the tip of a penny into the tread of your tires and the tread does not touch Lincoln’s head, your tires are worn and it is probably time to get new ones.
According to Kelley Blue Book, “Most tires are considered to have a life of between 25,000 and 50,000 miles.” Since these numbers are averages, it’s important to check your owner’s manual for a more specific recommendation. If your manual indicates it’s time for a tire replacement—whether you need car tires or truck tires, we have what you need. Contact us to inquire about our new and used tires and brands.
