What is Tire Mounting?
Tire mounting is the process of putting new tires onto your car’s wheels, and then putting the wheels onto the axles. While it’s a pretty straightforward process, it’s not a process that can be done by just anyone! After all, your tires make everything happen: stopping, starting, turning, and so on. Even if the rest of your car is in great shape, you cannot have a quality drive without quality wheels.
The experts at Wheel Works can handle all of your tire and wheel needs. After all, that’s our specialty. When you invest in a new set of tires, we’re here to make sure they are mounted perfectly and safely. It’s important to refer to your vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement and application recommendations, and all of this information in the owner’s manual and tire information placard. Any questions? Wheel Works is here to help!
The Importance of Balancing New Tires
Mounting tires is only half of the job. When you get new tires (or when you get old tires repaired or rotated) it’s crucial that they’re balanced as well! You can trust the experienced technicians at Wheel Works to make sure your tires are properly balanced and road ready.
Balancing a wheel is actually exactly what it sounds like. It means making sure that the mass of the wheel and tire is evenly distributed around your vehicle’s axle. A wheel can become unbalanced if it gets damaged, or if there are imperfections in the materials of the tire. The pros at Wheel Works will make sure that no section of tire or rim are heavier than the others. Otherwise you’re in for a bumpy ride.
