Part of maintaining a healthy vehicle includes changing used or faulty tires. BIG A Auto Sales & Service offers quality affordable repair services and tire Installation in Dubuque, IA.
What it is: Tire maintenance is very important to the safety and longevity of your car. Tires need to be selected by the right dimension for the vehicle make and model. Tires should be bought in sets of four, or at the very least matching groups of 2 on each axle. You can shop for tires on our website by size, brand name, or car make, style, and year. Browse our huge inventory of tires, and compare tire specifications and costs before you buy, to see to if you are receiving the best tires for your needs and price range.
Why it should be done: Tires wear in time, tread starts to become thin, which can result in the used wheel losing traction. This creates safety risks that can be avoided. Manufactures recommend tires must not be used for longer than 10 years. Replacing tires is suggested every 6 years, yet with regular usage tires being replaced every couple of years is more common. Wear happens with regular driving. Other factors such as driving habits, roadway conditions and weather may reduce the life of your tires.
You May Need New Tires If:
Your tread is below 4/32, or cannot pass the “penny” test
Footstep is noticeably minimized or flush with the tread bars
Irregular tread wear
Bulges, bumps or soft spots on the tire
