How Specialist Tyre Services Keep You Safer on the Road
You entrust your vehicle’s engine, gearbox, and clutch to experts in their fields, so why should your tyres be any different? Your car’s tyres play a critical role to keep you and your family safe while on the road. More than that, tyres also have a direct impact on the handling of your car, and its fuel efficiency. In fact, tyres affect every aspect of your car’s operation. If you do not pay them the attention they deserve, you run the risk of a blow-out and accident, even if you are an otherwise responsible motorist and vehicle owner.
The technicians performing our specialist tyre services know what challenges South African motorists face. They also know local weather conditions, the state of our roads, and how to do the maintenance of the cars placed in their care. These are only a few of the many ways in which our specialist tyre services help keep our clients safer on the road. We bring many years of experience and expertise to every vehicle we work on. You simply do not get this kind of peace of mind many places nowadays.
What We Include with Our Specialist Tyre Services
Keeping your tyres performing optimally and your vehicle safer on the road require a holistic approach. In that regard, we offer numerous specialist tyre services designed to boost the lifespan and performance of a car’s tyres. These services include wheel alignment and balancing, as well as re-treads. Let us take a closer look at each.
Wheel Alignment Services
This type of important maintenance is necessary for optimising the lifespan of your car’s tyres. Wheel alignment has an effect on the car’s overall handling, and by extension, passengers’ safety. It also:
- Reduces uneven tyre wear;
- Improves overall performance; and
- Boosts fuel economy and mileage, among others.
Wheel Balancing Services
Cars’ wheels should be balanced at every 10 000 km, as it helps to prolong the lifespan of the tyres, steering system, and suspension. Basic vehicle servicing usually only addresses other mechanical elements, such as routine engine service parts. It is therefore recommended to have specialist tyre services handle your tyres’ balancing and alignment. Regular balancing helps you avoid:
- Driver fatigue and uncomfortable vibration;
- Damaged steering components and prematurely worn tyres; and
- Needless wear and tear of your car’s suspension, among other damages.
Wheel Re-tread Services
Wheel re-treads may be advantageous for your commercial fleet, while saving you money. Retread tyres are far cheaper but their tread is as effective as new tyres’. They can help you reduce your operating costs.
