Tire Service in Fairfax, VA
When buying new tires, it’s always best to have your tire installation performed by the professionals at Main Street Shell. Tire services like mounting and balancing require experience and advanced equipment to guarantee your tires and your vehicle are not damaged during the process.
When mounting and balancing new tires, your vehicle’s axles, steering and suspension all play an important role, and the slightest imbalance in one could damage another. If tires are mounted incorrectly or left out of balance for an extended period of time, it can damage your tires, struts and shocks and lead to unnecessary repairs.
Why Choose Main Street Shell for Your Tire Service?
Tire services involve heavy parts and intricate systems, so it’s a service best left to the pros. Our Tire Industry Association Certified Technicians use state-of-the-art technology to make sure your tire installation goes off without a hitch.
A typical tire service at Main Street Shell includes:
- Removing old tires from the wheels and recycling them
- Inspecting the vehicle’s lug nuts
- Installing new Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) or valve stems
- Mounting new tires to their wheels
- Inflating and balancing tires
- Mounting the wheel to the axle of the vehicle with the new tire
What is a Tire Mounting Service?
Put plain and simple, tire mounting is the process of mounting a tire onto a wheel and then reinstalling the wheel 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 tires’ air pressure and install new TPMS or valve stems before your tires are mounted back onto the axle.

What is a Tire Balancing Service?
Tire balancing is often confused with wheel alignment since both services are related to the positioning of your tires. The difference is that wheel alignments correct the angle of a wheel in relation to your vehicle, while tire balancing fixes 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 causes 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.
