Complete Tire Repair and Wheel Services
Do you have a flat tire or have objects embedded in your tire? Have you noticed one of your tires is slowly losing air over time? The experts at Sun Auto Service are ready to take care of your tire repair and get you back on the road quickly.
Proper and consistent tire rotations will help extend the life of your tires. This service allows technicians to inspect the tires for adverse conditions that can cause damage and negatively impact their lifespan. We recommend that new tires be rotated at around 5,000 miles because the tread is more susceptible to uneven wear. After that, you should have a tire rotation done on a regular schedule, such as each time an oil change is done.
When your vehicle’s wheel/tire assembly isn’t spinning smoothly, you aren’t getting the best performance and life from your tires. Proper wheel balancing is a critical part of ensuring your safety on the road. Balancing ensures the tires are spinning correctly, which will keep your tires from creating vibrations in the steering wheel at high speeds. We provide this service to help maximize tire performance.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Service
Most tire failures are caused by underinflated tires. By monitoring the inflation levels closely, you can ensure the best performance from your tires. Our ASE-certified technicians can check your tire pressures and service for your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). When working properly, this system monitors the air pressure in your tires and will alert you via a light on your dash if your tires’ pressure needs attention.
How to Make Sure Your Tires Last
The high temperatures and long summers common in Texas can put excessive wear and tear on your vehicle, especially your tires. Here are just a few ways you can help ensure your tires perform well for many years:
- Check your tire pressure at least once a month, and anytime you’re preparing for a long trip.
- Regularly inspect your tires for excessive or uneven wear, damage, or objects that may be caught in the tread.
- Try to avoid hard cornering and braking, fast starts, and driving over debris or potholes.
- Stay below your tires’ maximum load capacity to prevent excessive heating.
- Bring your car or truck to Sun Auto Service for tire rotation and balancing at regular intervals.
