Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Parkdale Auto.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Parkdale Auto has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 231-887-4646 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Parkdale Auto, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Parkdale Auto to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
Lifesavers! We were driving back to back to the Chicago area from Arcadia on a time crunch and our car started making a loud whining sound- they looked at the car right away, diagnosed the problem (slow leak in a cooler line), filled us with oil and told us what to do to get back safety until we could get into our mechanic. We were back in the road in under 15 minutes! Thank you so much Parkdale Auto!!
Want to thank Anna and the crew for getting me and my husband in a great car. We appreciate it. They are so nice and very helpful. Again thank you!
