Tire Sales, Maintenance and Repair
What’s the single most important safety feature on your car? Tires!
Motorists easily forget that tires are the only thing that connects their car to the road and keeps it rolling. If tires are damaged, deflated or worn out, they not only present blow-out risks to drivers, but also prevent life-saving technologies from functioning correctly. Features like antilock brakes and electronic stability control need a good grip on the pavement to work – and to keep your vehicle moving safely. Life-saving technologies cannot kick into action if your tires don't have a good grip on the pavement, are not balanced or have suffered dangerous wear and tear that can cause blow-outs and other safety hazards.
Forest Grove offers new tires.
Vehicle owners usually replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of their car, van or truck. If you need new tires, Forest Grove carries brands with good reputation. We know how important tires are to your car.
The manufacturing quality of tires, including the material they’re made of, can enhance or interfere with your vehicle's performance. Good tires also protect the wheel rims and keep passengers safe. When you need new tires, we can help you select the best tires for your vehicle, your driving habits and your transportation demands.
Our tire management services prolong the life of your tires.
Forest Grove Auto Repair provides tire management services for fleets and for family owned automobiles. We aim to ensure that you get the best value, fuel economy and life from your current tires.
A few measures we use to determine the best maintenance strategies include:
Braking, handling ease
Resistance to hydroplaning
Winter weather traction
Tread wear and rolling resistance
Ride comfort with minimal noise
Despite recent advances to prolong tire life, actual tread life of your tires will vary by car type, tire type (such as all-season or high performance), driving habits, road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance, including tire rotation, correct pressure and attention to minor leaks or abrasions, along with responsible driving, can maximize your mileage and prolong the life of a set of tires.
For comfortable and safe driving, your tires need regular attention. Some experts say that tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. You know how instrumental your tires are in getting you from place to place. To keep them rolling, you’ll want to have them checked regularly. Tires easily pick up unwanted objects that may be risks to safety, such as punctures from nails, glass or slivers of wood that lead to slow leaks or worse if not caught early.
