Your tires are what sit between you and the road. They are an essential safety feature of your vehicle.

Checking your tires regularly is crucial for stopping and cornering safely and for ensuring that your ride is smooth, safe and comfortable. Minute Muffler & Brake can supply a full line of major brand tires for all seasons and driving conditions.

As tire replacements can often be unexpected and expensive, taking proper care of them will help to avoid such incidents.

Car and Truck Tire Warning Signs:

  • Your tires squeal when cornering.
  • Uneven tread wear. This could be caused by inadequate inflation, misaligned wheels or damaged tires.
  • Poor vehicle handling. It may be that your tires are over inflated or lacking the necessary tire tread.
  • Cracking, cuts or blisters on the sidewalls. If you notice any of these signs, replace the tire at once. These signal potential weak spots that could result in sudden tire failure.
  • When you see a narrow rubber stripe (wear bar) running across your tires it indicates your tire has reached a point that, by law, it must be replaced.
  • Excessive vibration. Vibration can be a sign a tire is misaligned, unbalanced, or bent. It could also signify internal tire damage. Have your vehicle seen to by one of our technicians right away.

Tires provide the traction for stopping, cornering and they help absorb road bumps to give you a smooth, safe and comfortable ride.
