Tire repair or replacement in Phoenix is big business annually - there are a ton of stores that cater to tires and tire repair everywhere - even at the big box retail stores. Attached are some common questions we ask or answer to make sure tire repair is right for you.
What is TPMS?
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is an electronic system that alerts you with a dashboard indicator light when your car’s tire pressure falls to the point of needing inflation. It is a great warning system but domes not automatically mean you have to replace tires.
What is the proper inflation for my tires?
We recommend using the tire pressure that the vehicle manufacturer requires. This information is normally written on the inside driver’s door jam. We suggest you do not deviate from this tire pressure - much. Pressure requirements may change with plus–sized tires. The manufacturer–recommended inflation for standard–sized tires on your vehicle are also available on-line.
Is it easy to see when my tire pressure is low?
Tire pressure is very difficult to judge by sight alone. Tires can be well under 50% inflated before it’s noticeable to the eye. This is why it’s so important to check your tire pressure monthly with an accurate tire gauge - especially as when go from Arizona Summer to Arizona winter. Notice I skipped the fall............
What is the repairable area of a non-RFT (Run Flat) tire?
We only repair tires in accordance with the RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association) recommended procedures. Some punctures cannot be seen with the naked eye, and other measures are taken to find such punctures (such as soapy water and tire water tubs). Side-wall punctures always need to be double checked.
Why did my tires wear so quickly?
Premature tire wear may be caused by many factors other than tire rotation. Some examples are as follows:
- improper inflation
- driving conditions
- misaligned vehicles
- worn vehicle parts and a variety of other reasons
Without physically inspecting the tires, it is difficult to make a determination as to why your tires wore prematurely.
Does nitrogen make a difference in tires?
Recently, some tire jockey's and filling stations have been offering nitrogen (N2) as an inflation gas for passenger and light truck tires. Nitrogen is acceptable as an inflation gas for use in many tires. Nitrogen will not cause any detrimental reaction to the inner liner. Whether or not this helps with gas mileage – we will let you decide. We do not fill with Nitrogen.
