Watch Our Work in Action
What is a Tire Mounting Service?
Put plain and simple, tire mounting is the process in which your tire is mounted onto the wheel which is then reinstalled onto the axle of your vehicle. To guarantee that your tire installation provides the smoothest and most secure ride possible, our technicians will check the air pressure of new tires and install new TPMS or valves stems before your tires are mounted back onto the axle.
What is a Tire Balancing Service?
Tire balancing is often confused with wheel alignment, as both address the positioning of your tire in your vehicle. But where wheel alignment aims to correct the angle of a wheel in relation to your vehicle, tire balancing aims to fix the height and level of your tires in relation to each other and your vehicle.
Tires can become imbalanced when the weight of your vehicle is not evenly distributed, something tire rotations also work to address. An out-of-balance tire can cause a shaky, uneven ride. If left untreated, this uneven distribution of pressure and weight can make your steering wheel uneven and increase the wear and tear on your tires, forcing you to replace them more often than necessary.
