Are your tires safe? Let our team at Cain & Sons' Automotive make sure.

Are you certain your tires are in great shape and ready to take you anywhere you want to go?  In any type of weather?  That you can stop when you need to even if the road conditions are not optimal?  Our Glen Rock drivers depend on our team here at Cain & Sons' Automotive to check their tires on every visit and determine just how much tread is left.  We check the tires based on the manufacturer's estimation and tread wear as well as your driving habits.  Those habits play a big factor in determining how soon you need to change out your tires.  Tire manufacturers analyze the capabilities of their tires under a variety of road conditions and speeds to ensure the safety and durability of their tires. These tests are conducted on all factory-made tires whether they are intended for rain, snow, off-road, performance or fuel conservation.  Among the many tests done on new tires is stopping distance and there are many factors that determine that distance!  Our job is to ensure your safety on the road after you leave our shop so you can drive with peace-of-mind.

How do you determine what safe tire tread is for your vehicle?

It takes 5 minutes to properly check your tires and make sure your tires are safe.

Tread Depth & Wear A simple way to determine whether you need tires is the quarter test. Insert a quarter upside down into your tire's tread. If the tread of your tire does not touch George Washington's head, it's time to have your tires replaced.

5/32" or greater depth: Your tires are in good condition and do not need to be replaced.

4/32" Depth: Your tires should be monitored and you may notice a decline in wet weather performance.

3/32" Depth: Monitor your tires closely and replace them soon to ensure your vehicle is road ready, safe, and dependable.

2/32" Depth or less: You need tires now.  Driving is unsafe with tires in this condition and should be replaced right away.

Tire Check

Inflation:  Check the air pressure monthly and before taking any long trips.  Poor inflation can cause premature wear, increased fuel consumption, and tire failure.

Rotation:  Your tires should be rotated every 3,000-5,000 miles.  When done consistently, this helps maintain proper traction and gives you the maximum tread life.

Eye Check Daily:  Inspect your tires daily for penetrations, bulges, cracks, and abnormal wear.  Don't forget to check the tire edges for damage caused by misalignment or under-inflation.

Trust your tires to our team of automotive technicians at Cain & Sons' Automotive IN Glen Rock where we care about your safety.

 

TIRE BALANCING

Tire Balancing is important to extend the life of your tires, as well as increase the basic safety of your vehicle. Cain and Sons’ Automotive offers quality affordable tire balancing in Glen Rock, PA.

What it does: Out of balance tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration, and potentially unsafe driving performance. It is very important to balance tires frequently based on your car's requirements.

Glen Rock, PA Tire Balancing

When do wheels need to be balanced: Tires are balanced when you replace 2 or 4 tires on your automobile. Because tires wear depending on driving routines and road conditions, unequal wear will start to become recognizable after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of usage. Tires must be checked for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our technicians can easily help identify whether your tires should be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.

IMPORTANT: It is not advised to replace just one tire as this might create major problems with the alignment, balance, and handling of the vehicle.

How to tell if your tires require balancing:

    Vibrations when driving
    Uneven tread wear
    Steering that becomes less smooth over the life of the tires
    Pulling to one side

The benefits of balanced tires are:

    Smoother ride
    Better miles per gallon
    More even tire wear
    Prolonged life of tires and drive train parts

Wear happens with regular driving. Other factors such as driving habits, roadway conditions and weather may reduce the life of your tires.

TIRE REPAIR

Flat Tires can induce the rim of the tire to rest on the tire tread or on the ground possibly triggering in loss of control of the automobile or irrecoverable damage to the tire. One of the most usual cause for a flat tire is piercing of the tire by a sharp object, such as a nail, allowing air escape.

Depending on the dimension of the slit, the tire might deflate slowly or swiftly. Which may result in the following problems:

    - Failing of or damages to the valve stem;
    - Permitting air to escape from the valve or creating damage
    - Rubbing of the tire against the roadway
    - Extreme wear of the tire tread

Some tires, particularly a slow leakage, can easily be fixed and re-inflated; others, particularly those from the worn tread, need to be changed.

Glen Rock, PA Tire Repair

Here are some simple methods to catch tire issues before they become costly or unsafe. Take a good examination of each tire in a well-lit atmosphere. Examine for unequal tire wear, which may be induced by:

    - Excessive or too little air pressure
    - Problems with wheel alignment or tire balancing
    - Problems with the suspension
    - Unequal tire wear

These might imply you require new tires-- quickly. Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, may result in a fatal collision. These problems have the possibility to create a blowout, inducing a loss of control that can easily be incredibly unsafe.

    - Splitting or protruding treads or sidewalls
    - Foreign objects that penetrate into the tire (nails, screws, glass)
    - Tread tearing away from the body of the tire
