Selecting tires is an important decision that affects the safety, performance, and cost of owning a motor vehicle.

Just as important as selecting the right tires is to have those tires installed and balanced by a trained technician. Without proper installation and balancing, you may find that your vehicle ‘pulls’ to one side, your steering wheel shakes, or you’re spending more money on gas.

Peninsula Tire and Auto provides a range of tire services, including the following:

Tire Mounting

Mounting and removing a tire from a wheel requires specialist equipment and knowledge. Tires have markings, generally referred to as the ‘GG ring’, and when installed this marking needs to be checked to make certain that the tire’s bead is seated correctly. Wheels are typically equipped with a rib that locks the tire’s bead in place, good fitment will ensure the best outcome in the event of rapid deflation and will ensure good wear and handling. Remember too that often tires are required to rotate in a set direction. Read more »

Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is the position of the wheels relative to your car. When properly aligned, the wheels point in the right direction. Without proper alignment, the wheels resist your steering commands, as well as each other. Alignment also affects gas mileage and tire wear. If your tires are pointed in different directions, they fight against each other and can cause tread wear. Read more »

Wheel Balance

Wheel balance refers to the proper distribution of weight around a revolving tire and wheel assembly. Poor wheel balance can have a marked impact on both your car and your safety. Read more »

Tubeless Valves

Tubeless valves are the method of checking and maintaining the tire’s air pressure. Tubeless valves become less reliable over time and need to be replaced. There are a variety of valve types with some modern valves designed to reveal a red band if the tire is under inflated. Talk with your tire expert on the choices of valves. Read more »

Tire Disposal

Tire disposal is a contentious environmental issue, if disposed of in normal land fill they tend to rise to the surface. If left unburied they become a home for vermin and insect pests. Most states and countries require that tires be disposed of by licensed scrap merchants. There are some ingenious methods of reducing tires to a more manageable state including shredding and freezing then smashing. Read more »

Consumable Supplies

Installing tires, consumes other items. There is a bead lubricant that is designed to support the correct fitment of the tire and reduce the potential for damage to the tire and wheel in the fitment process. There are solvents and cleaners needed to remove coatings that the manufacturer places on the tires to protect them during shipping and storage. Often the wheel itself needs cleaning to remove dirt that may impact the balancing of the wheel and to make certain that the wheel’s mounting face that attaches to the vehicle is clear. There are lubricants and products used on the wheel nuts themselves. Read more »

Anti-Lock Brake Service

Anti lock brakes were designed to minimize stopping distances in emergency situations. When you apply full pressure to the braking system the antilock system takes over and essentially pumps the brake for you in an effort to avoid locking up the tires and creating a skid which increases the stopping distance. If you have a yellow “abs” light shinning constantly on your instrument panel, this indicates that your antilock braking system is disabled and a skid will most likely occur in a panic stop. The Brake Service Center can diagnose and repair your Read more »
