Tire Services in Airdrie
While every vehicle needs 4, we find more times than not this area is the most neglected. A good set of tires does not only offer better vehicle performance and handling but also piece of mind. At All Fitts Automotive we want our customers safe when they are on the road.
Tire Rotations and Balancing
Front and rear tires wear differently. The front tires wear quicker than the rears. Because of this, it's necessary to rotate the tires front-to-rear several times during their life cycle to 1) equalize tread wear and 2) maximize the life of the tires. It's important to have your tires balanced at this time. Unbalanced tires can cause a lot of wear of bearings and such. At this time is allows our technicians to get in there and check your axels, brakes, etc.
Winter tires have been specifically designed for cold temperatures and snow or ice. Again depending on your vehicle's travels it's not a bad thing to have winter tires in Alberta. At All Fitts Auto we recommend winter tires be installed in matching sets of four. Because of their superior grip in winter conditions, mixing them with other tires on a vehicle will create a dangerous miss-match and likely result in a loss of control.
