 Tire Alignment

 Checking your tire alignment is important because it affects your ability to drive. Misalignment wears down your tires and affects the amount of fuel  being used. Sometimes it is obvious to tell when your tire alignment is off. You may feel vibrations from your steering wheel from balancing  problems, or your car will pull to one side of the road. Steering becomes very difficult and makes it hard to maneuver the vehicle. Other times, you  may not even notice anything unusual. This is why it is important to get regular tire alignment inspections so that you do not jeopardize your safety. If  you feel that your car alignment is off or notice anything unusual, come see Jefferson Auto, and our experts will provide you with the best care for your vehicle for long-lasting performance. Drive and control your car smoothly and with ease.

Tire Balancing

 Balanced tires can be the difference between a good or bad driving experience. It can affect how the vehicle rides and damage your tires, bearings,  shocks, and other suspension components quicker. Depending on the vehicle, your car may be more sensitive to being out of balance than others.  Speed vibrations that become noticeable around 40-45 mph and progresses as you increase speed is probably related to balance. The most  common reason for vibrations is that the tire and wheel assembly isn’t perfectly rounded. What happens is that the high spot on the tire, and the high  spot on the wheel end up matching to each other. This effectively doubles the amount of "hop".

 Tire Mounting

 Mounting tires can be a good thing but also a bad thing as well. The good thing about mounting tires onto your car is that if you put the tires onto  your cars wheels, then you would have to make sure that by installing it onto the wheels of your cars axles that it’s on really good, and by doing this  your vehicle will be able to drive better.  But the bad thing about tire mounting is that if you don’t do it the correct way when you're driving your car then  something might go really wrong and it might damage your car completely. That’s way you don’t want to do tire mounting wrong.
