San Antonio Tire Services
Finsanto's experienced technicians are experts in tire services, alignments, installing and balancing tires, and tire inspections.
Finsanto has a state-of-the-art alignment machine with a lift that is built into the shop floor. This means that alignments that many shops cannot do can be done by our technicians! Alignments help your vehicle drive smoother, your tires last longer, and keeps you on the road. Wheels that are not aligned properly lead to uneven and accelerated wear on your tires, meaning they will need to be replaced much more often!
Your tires are the one part of the car that contacts the road, so it is vital they are maintained properly. Your owners manual will have the correct sizes for your tires. When you purchase new tires, it is preferrable to buy them in sets of 4, or at least in matching groups of 2 on each axle. Different tire treads and thicknesses will roll differently on the road, so mixing and matching can cause premature wear on tires and drive systems. Our service advisors here at Finsanto will be happy to help you compare tire brands and benefits to make sure you get the right fit for your driving style.
All spinning objects need to be balanced properly to keep that spin nice and smooth. While wheels and tires are made as close to perfectly balanced as possible, small variations can add together to create a vibration while you're driving down the road. Balancing tires and wheels make sure that your vehicle runs smoothly down the road.
We will balance your wheels and tires each time you replace your vehicle's tires. Poorly balanced wheels can lead to tire wear issues in even the initial 1,000 to 2000 miles of use, so proper balancing is important from the start. In addition, since tires wear based off of road conditions as well, it's important to check your wheel balance every 4,000 to 6,000 miles. Our experienced technicians can assist in determining if your tires need to be balanced and rotated based on mileage and wear.
The weight of your vehicle is not the same on all four corners. The engine adds a lot of weight to the front. Add on the fact that the front wheels handle the steering means those front tires will wear faster than the rear tires! This means that tire rotations are essential for extending the life of your tires, as we move the tires from the front to the back, allowing the most-worn tires time on the back where they don't wear as much.
Uneven tire wear can bring down your car's MPGs, which isn't great in today's economy. Obviously, when two tires wear much faster than the other two, you end up buying more tires overall as well. Visit Finsanto Automotive Repair Shop and let our trained technicians rotate your tires.
Tires are vital for the safety of your vehicle: they're the one part that is in contact with the road! It's important that the tires are inspected on a regular basis for damage or punctures. In addition, bulges, tears, and cuts can negatively effect a tire's structure. If you have doubts about the condition of your tires, it's best to have them inspected. Finsanto Automotive Repair Shop is known for performing top-notch tire inspection services.
