Tire and wheel technology has advanced exponentially in the past few decades. Tires have always been essential, of course, even Fred Flintstone had to ensure his wheels were in the right condition for his vehicle! Luckily, now we have tire technology that gives our vehicles a smoother, safer, and more fuel-efficient ride. With greater technology, though, comes greater responsibility for upkeep and maintenance. Whether you are coming in because your ride just doesn’t feel right or you are in need of immediate puncture repair, RI Automotive in Tampa, Florida is equipped to identify the issue, fix it, and send you back out the bay doors in a vehicle you feel safe driving. Discuss various tire options with our technicians and we will strive to give you a transparent quote for the tires or services required for your vehicle.
Tire wear has immediate and long-lasting effects on the performance of your vehicle. Wheel alignment directly affects the wear pattern on your tires and determines how long those tires will last. To the naked eye, your tires may look well-treaded, however, as part of their training, our technicians are taught how to identify different wear patterns and determine any areas of high stress on your tires. They can tell you if another system on your vehicle needs attention -- like the wheel alignment -- just by looking at your tires! By maintaining your tires and ensuring any faults are immediately and properly repaired, you will get a longer life out of those tires and your vehicle. You can’t avoid a railroad nail through your tire, but you can make sure your tires are in peak condition for all other circumstances. After all, your tires are what keep you on the road.
