Tires are one of the most important parts of your car because they deliver the traction needed to control your vehicle. Tires require maintenance, occasional repairs, and eventual replacement. A good local tire store should be able to handle all of your needs when it comes to taking care of your tires. Here’s what you should look for in a tire shop to ensure you get good service.

Tire and Wheel Maintenance

Your tires need to be rotated and the wheels need to be balanced about twice a year to help them stay in good condition. According to Auto Trader, most motorists should rotate their vehicles’ tires every 5,000 to 6,000 miles. The service evens out the wear and tear on the tires, makes your wheels roll their best, and delivers a smooth ride. It also gives the tire technicians a chance to inspect your tires and wheels to ensure they are in excellent condition.

Tire Selection and Prices

When it’s time to replace your tires, your local tire store should have a good selection of tires that are competitively priced. You shouldn’t overpay for your tires or be forced to buy substandard ones to put on your vehicle. The shop should have valve stems to replace damaged parts and install valve stems on new tires to keep them properly inflated. If your wheels are damaged, the shop should be able to replace those, too.

Satisfaction Guarantees

A tire shop’s owner should have confidence in the quality of work done to guarantee your satisfaction. If the tires and wheels don’t seem to roll properly, the shop should be willing to inspect them and fix the problem or replace any defective tires or wheel components. The tires and wheels also should be warranted against defects and capable of lasting tens of thousands of miles when maintained properly.

Positive Online Reviews

A local shop should have satisfied customers from your local community. You can check Google, Yelp, and other online sources to see what other customers say about the quality of goods and services a local shop provides. You can’t expect every review to be positive, but the vast majority of reviews should be good to great and speak to the quality of products and the professional nature of the staff.
