Car Brakes,Tyre, Wheel and Suspension Interaction in Stopping.
High quality tyres in good condition are an important safety investment. They are the critical road contact point in the braking system of your car and have an important role in keeping your car in continuous contact with the road. Equally important are aligned and balanced wheels to make your car a pleasure to drive again.
If you are experiencing vibration or poor handling while driving, have problems keeping tyres inflated, have low tyre tread or can see obvious damage to your tyres, it is time to have them checked.
Regular servicing will keep you current on your tyre condition and is also a good opportunity to have your wheel alignments and wheel balances performed. These are low cost service and can greatly improve your driving experience and road safety.
