Whether you’re shopping for light truck tires or passenger tires, you’ll need them mounted. When you buy new tires, they’re put on the rims of your vehicles. Tire mounting is the first part of tire installation. While you technically can mount your own tires, it’s best left to the professionals at your tire change service.
Getting your tires rotated helps with even tread wear and elongates the life of your tires. When you rotate your tires, you’ll have a smoother ride and save money in the long run. Your owner’s manual should list a suggested timeline of when to have your tires rotated. If you’re still unsure, read through our article on knowing when to rotate your tires.
Unbalanced tires can unevenly wear down your tire tread. You might have to replace your tires before you really need to. Unbalanced tires can also lead to wheel bearing and suspension issues, as well as less control of your vehicle. Your local tire change service should be able to balance your tires to help you have a safe, smooth ride. Check out the pros and cons of tire balancing in our tire balancing article.
You also have the option of tire balancing with road force. A roller applies up to 1,400 pounds of pressure to simulate the weight of your vehicle on the tire when it’s on the road. If the tire rolls smoothly and evenly, it’s good to go. If not, wheel weights can be added until the wheel is balanced and spins smoothly and evenly.
If your tire has a slight puncture that can be patched up, you can bring it in for tire repair. A rubber stem is used to fill the puncture “wound” and a patch is applied to seal the the inner liner. Tire repair can help help you save time and money, and avoid a dangerous blow out.
You can have your valve steams and TPMS checked. When your tires are properly inflated at the right pressure, you’ll have a smoother ride and save money at the gas pump.
