Video: Nissan Tire Repair Information

Watch this video presented by our tire shop in Duluth to see information about how to check your tires and recognize signs of wear.

If you don't take care of your tires, you'll not only pose a hazard to yourself and other drivers, but will ultimately pay more than you need to because your tires will wear prematurely. Check out information about getting tire rotation, wheel balancing and tire alignment in the Atlanta area, and make these services part of your tire maintenance plan.

TIRE ROTATION
Pro tip: Get your tires rotated every six to eight months.

If you skip getting rotations, that set of new Nissan tires may wear out quicker than you think. The weight distribution on the front and rear axle of your car is different, which means tread wears faster in certain positions than others. Typically, the front tires incur the most tread wear, so they must be rotated to the back to help keep wear fairly evened out among all tires on your vehicle.

WHEEL BALANCE
Pro tip: Have your wheels balanced every 3,000 to 6,000 miles - or at least when rotating your tires.

Experiencing a bouncy feeling ride or excessive vibration when driving at a higher speed? You may need to have your wheels balanced. Our tire shop in Duluth can assist with the service, which entails using specialized equipment to measure whether certain parts of the tire/wheel assemblage are lighter or heavier, then adding weights to the wheels to balance the ride.

TIRE ALIGNMENT
Pro tip: Have your alignment checked approximately every six months.

If your car pulls to one side or you notice uneven tread wear on your tires, you may need alignment service. Aside from these common signs, it can be difficult for drivers to pick up on the fact that their tires are misaligned, so bring your vehicle to us for inspection. When you're receiving your tire rotations, our pros can take a look, and if you do need service, we offer great prices on tire alignment in Duluth.

Even if you got a great deal on your tires, that's no reason to let them wear out sooner than they need to. So after getting a new set of tires at our tire shop in the Atlanta area, make sure you attend to these services when recommended to ensure that your tires last as long as possible.
