AUTO REPAIR AND THE ARIZONA SUMMER PART 2

Part two of our series on auto repair in Mesa explores why you have to make sure that you take care of your tires this time of year. Get New Tires in Mesa Auto Repair in Mesa and Your Tires Unless you have your car stored in an air-conditioned garage somewhere, odds are, your car will be sitting in either a warm parking garage, or a hot parking lot sooner or later. If you’re parked in a parking garage, you’re lucky. You don’t have as much to worry about, but even so you need to be aware of one key thing about living in Arizona: hot temperatures are bad for your tires.

All About Tires Part 3: What Tires Should You Get?

Part three of a series on replacing your tires explores what tires you should get for your vehicle, as well as common mistakes that consumers make. Should I Buy a Set of Tires or Just One? Tires don’t wear out at the same rate. In addition, when it’s time to replace your tires, you want to make sure that you be careful of mixing and matching tire types. For example, you don’t want to mix in non-radial tires with radials. You also want to match your tread as closely as possible. Otherwise, you will likely have a bumpy ride when you drive. One of the best ways to match your tread across your car is to buy a set of tires each time it is time to replace just one. A lot of people will sputter and squawk at this idea. Buying a set of tires is too expensive! I just need one! As an auto repair shop, we’ve heard these sort of objections a lot. However, for one thing, the bumpy ride we mentioned above can have a bad effect on your car. If your wh ... read more

All About Tires Part 2: Get New Tires or Retreads?

Part two of a series on replacing your tires explores how to avoid blowouts by getting the right tires for your vehicle. Should I Get New Tires or Retread Tires? Get New Tires if Your Tread Depth is Getting Low A lot of people swear by retread tires, and make no mistake, they are considerably cheaper than buying new tires. Generally retreads are about 1/4th the cost of a new tire, so essentially, you can get a set of four tires for the price of one. However, when you buy new tires, you’re getting a lot better chances of the tires lasting, as well as a warranty on each tire. Some retread places offer warranties too, however, be cautious. Some of the warranties have so many loopholes written into them that you have a better chance of winning the lottery than actually getting your tire replaced for little to no money. We had a customer who we’ll call Mortimer come in after replacing his retreads for the fourth time that year finally break dow ... read more

Part one of a series on replacing your tires explores some common questions regarding tires as well as some common misconceptions. Tire Replacement: Rotation, Rotation, Rotation Rotate and Change Your Tires Every 7500 Miles Tire rotation is something that a lot of people neglect when they bring their car into an auto repair shop. If you do it properly, however, it has a lot of benefits to offer. First off, one myth that a lot of first time car owners have about tires is the belief that all a car’s tires wear evenly. However, if you learn anything from this article, know that your tires do not wear out at the same rate. Front tires wear out quicker than your rear tires do. It makes sense if you think about it. First off, your primary brakes are located on the front two wheels. Your engine, which is easily the heaviest piece of your car puts more weight on your front two tires than on your back two. Every time you hit your brakes, your ... read more
