Tire Replacement involves substituting old or damaged tires on a vehicle with new ones to ensure optimal driving safety, performance, and efficiency.

Tires explained

Tire Replacement is a critical service that involves removing old, worn, or damaged tires from a vehicle and installing new ones.

This process is essential not only for maintaining the vehicle's safety but also for enhancing its overall performance and fuel efficiency.

At Gateway Auto - Service & Collision Center, we assess the condition of your tires, considering tread depth, wear patterns, and any damage that might compromise safety. We then recommend and install the appropriate tires based on your vehicle type and driving needs, ensuring they are properly balanced and aligned for optimal performance and longevity.

When or why do you need it?

Tire Replacement is necessary when your tires are worn down to the tread wear indicator, have uneven wear, or are damaged beyond repair. It’s also recommended to replace tires that are aged or have been in use for many years, as old tires can lose their effectiveness and pose a safety risk.

Regular inspections can help determine the right time for replacement.

At Gateway Auto - Service & Collision Center, we advise on tire replacement to ensure your vehicle remains safe, handles well, and operates efficiently. New tires can significantly improve your driving experience, offering better traction, stability, and peace of mind, especially in challenging driving conditions.

Frequently asked questions

If it's a car, we'll fix it. If it's a question, we'll answer it.

Can I replace my tires with a different brand or size than the original ones?

If you're getting a full new set of tires, you may be able to choose different brands or sizes, but it's important to consult with our technicians to ensure compatibility and proper fitment.

Can I replace just one tire at a time?

It's recommended to replace tires in pairs or sets of four to maintain consistent handling and traction.

What's the difference between all-season, summer, and winter tires?

All-season tires are versatile for various conditions, while summer tires offer better performance in warm weather, and winter tires provide enhanced traction in cold and snowy conditions.

How do I know the right tire size for my vehicle?

Refer to your vehicle's owner's manual or the tire placard located on the driver's side door jamb for the recommended tire size.

Can tire rotations prevent the need for new tires?

Yes, regular tire rotations can help extend the lifespan of your tires by promoting even wear. This can delay the need for new tire purchases and save you money in the long run.

What happens if I don't rotate my tires regularly?

Without regular tire rotations, the tires on your vehicle may wear unevenly, leading to decreased performance, reduced handling capabilities, and premature tire replacement.

Do I need to rotate my tires if I have all-wheel drive (AWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD)?

Yes, even with AWD or 4WD, tire rotation is necessary to ensure all tires wear evenly. Different driving conditions affect tire wear, and rotation helps maintain balanced tire performance.

How often should I rotate my tires?

We find that neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear. Your tires should be rotated every 6000 miles or every other oil change.
