Accurate Wheel Alignment Extends Tire Tread Life

Michigan and Ohio drivers experience five different seasons: summer, fall, winter, spring and pothole season. Sometimes called kettles or chuckholes, potholes appear after water freezes in cracks or crevices of the road surface. Periodic freezing and thawing causes them to widen and surrounding surface area to flake away. The hole then further expands as vehicles bump their way through it, loosening even more of the already fragile pavement around it.

An unexpected encounter with a monster pothole can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your tires, wheels, steering system and suspension components. Even a chance encounter with a medium-size pothole can inflict damage you might not notice by throwing your wheel alignment out of whack. If that happens, you might notice that your vehicle pulls to the left or right when the steering wheel is in a straight ahead position or notice excessive vibration at high speeds.

You might also notice unusual or excessive tire wear. That’s because, instead of running straight and true, your tires are now skidding or scrubbing across the road, almost as it they were constantly cornering. Fortunately, there are some tire discount stores that have state-of-the-art computerized wheel alignment equipment to quickly, accurately and affordably adjust any alignment problems that could cause your vehicle to pull or vibrate and ultimately shorten the life of your tires.

Balancing versus Alignment
Don’t be confused by tire retailers who say tire-wheel balancing and wheel alignment is the same thing or that balancing is good enough. Tires generate enormous centrifugal forces at high speeds. Balancing evens out weight irregularities in each tire and wheel combination. It helps ensure the tire maintains constant surface contact without skipping, jumping or bumping over the road. A wheel alignment ensures all four wheels and tires track straight and true. It centers them with your steering system, maximizes suspensions system performance and helps prevent uneven tire wear.

Alignment Geometry
Accurate wheel alignment is a matter of geometry. To ensure safe everyday driving with good directional stability and extended tire tread life, four critical suspension angles must be precisely aligned and adjusted to the vehicle’s factory specifications.

  • Camber angle measures how far the tire slants away from vertical when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Camber is negative when the top of the tire leans inward and positive when it leans outward.
  • Caster angle measures how far the tire slopes forward or backward of a line drawn through the upper and lower pivot points of the steering system when viewed directly from the side. Caster is negative if the line slopes forward and positive if it slopes backward toward the rear of the vehicle.
  • Toe angle measures the direction the tires are pointed compared to a line drawn through the center of the vehicle when viewed from above. Tires are toe-in if they intersect the centerline and toe-out if they do not.
  • Thrust angle compares the direction the rear axle is aimed compared to a line drawn down the center of the vehicle.  Thrust angle is on-center if the rear axle is parallel to the front axle and off-center if it is not.

Ask a Professional
If your vehicle pulls to the left or right when the steering wheel is in a straight ahead position, if experience excessive vibration at high speeds or if you notice uneven tire wear, it might be time for an alignment check. But, precisely adjusting the critical geometry angles engineered into today’s sophisticated suspension systems isn’t a job for an amateur.

ASE Certified Technicians at most tire discount stores have the training, tools and state-of-the-art computerized equipment to do it quickly, accurately and affordably. Even if you don’t have an unexpected meeting with a pothole, it’s a good idea to have your wheel alignment inspected every twelve months or 12,000 miles.

So, enjoy every Michigan and Ohio driving season. Have your wheel alignment checked by a professional after any pothole mishap or every twelve months or 12,000 miles. Many tire discounters offer free alignment checks that will tell you if you’re in need of an alignment.  You’ll not only maximize your suspension system and tire performance, you’ll also save money down the road because you won’t have to replace your tires as often.

Tire Rotation Encourages Even Tread Wear

There are many difficult maintenance and repair chores associated with your automobile, but tire rotation isn’t one of them … and it’s a service that clearly adds to your bottom line. If you know how to change a flat tire, then you have all the necessary skills to perform your own tire rotation.

The concept of tire rotation is simple- you swap the front tires of your car or truck with the back tires at regular intervals. By rotating your tires you increase the life of the entire set of tires. If your tires were never rotated it’s likely you would experience irregular wear in one or two tires, but by rotating at regular intervals you allow all four tires to wear out at about the same time so they can be replaced with a matching set.

Naturally, if you brought tire professionals from ten reputable tire discounters into a room and asked their opinion, you’d get ten different ideas on tire rotation. There is the opinion one should never rotate your rear tires with your front tires. Or that you should swap the front and rear left-side together, or the crossover opinion of left front to right rear and right front to left rear. Each of these opinions has its pros and cons.

There is one concept that all can agree upon. If you own a front-wheel drive vehicle the tires on the front wear twice as fast as the tires on the rear. There are several reasons for this: the drive train’s power goes though the front tires, the front tires shoulder the brunt of the cornering, and the front tires do the lion’s share of the braking.

All of this friction results in the gradual loss of tread, at a greater rate of wear on the front tires than the rear ones. For this reason, if you never rotated your tires your rear tires would only be about half worn when your front tires needed replacing. This plays into the opinion that you should never swap your front and rear tires when rotating … simply replace the front tires. However, this plan has its drawbacks. You might not be able to match to your rear tires, which will introduce different handling and traction characteristics.

Most experts agree that rotating all four tires together makes the most sense. Tire manufacturers, vehicle manufacturers and mechanics all recommend one of several rotation patterns, but the truth is it makes virtually no difference which way you rotate your tires as long as each tire divides its time equally on the front and rear of the car. The goal is to have all the tires wear equally so that all four are ready for replacement at the same time.

How often you rotate your tires is another area of wide ranging opinion, but the general consensus is to schedule a tire rotation somewhere in the range of every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If you’re getting your brakes serviced it’s always a good idea to ask the mechanic to rotate the tires since they’re already off the car. And don’t forget to check your service contract because some tire stores include basic tire rotation as one of their benefits.

By regularly rotating your tires you promote even tread wear and reduce the chances of uneven wear and bald spots. A recent survey of 7,000 vehicles conducted by the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) uncovered the disturbing statistic that more than 11% of vehicles were riding on at least one bald tire, a dangerous driving situation for both the vehicle’s owner and the others sharing that road. Scheduled tire rotation will lessen the chance of this situation occurring on your vehicle, and at the very least provides you, or a trained technician from a reputable tire discounter, an opportunity to get a close visual inspection of your tires and identify a potential hazardous situation before it becomes a road hazard.

Sidewall Numbers and Letters Tell a Tale about Your Tires

Taking a close look at your tire’s sidewall can provide you with just about everything you really need to know about your tires. But, before diving into the language of tires, let’s consider what type of tires you have. Automobile tires generally fall into the following major categories:

P-Metric – P-metric sized tires are the ones with the “P” at the beginning of the tire size, such as P206/60R15. Their load capacity is based on an engineering formula which takes into account their physical size and the amount of air pressure.

European Metric- Euro-metric and P-metric tires in the same size, such as P206/60R15 and 206/60R15, are equivalent in their dimensions with only slight differences in their load capacity and inflation pressure. They are interchangeable if used in axle pairs or sets of four.

LT-Metric– LT-metric tires are equivalent to P-Metric tires, but have slight changes load abilities. Many 1/4-ton and 1/2-ton vehicles use Euro-metric and P-metric sized tires, while 3/4-ton and 1-ton vehicles use LT-metric sized tires.

Light Truck High Flotation – This designates tires with lower aspect ratio and higher flotation characteristics, which provide improved traction off-road. Information on these tires is always stated in inches.

T – Temporary Spare – If the lettering on a tire’s sidewall begins with a “T,” it signifies that it’s a Temporary Spare designed to be used only a limited time until a flat tire can be repaired or replaced.

The set of numbers and letters on your tire’s sidewall, 206/60R15 for example, can provide you a wealth of information. The first number represents the Section Width or the width of the tire. This is the distance between the outsides of the sidewalls of the tire, measured in millimeters or in inches on a high flotation tire.

The next number is the Aspect Ratio. This is the ratio between the tires Section Height, which is the distance from the rim seat to the outside of the tread, and the Section Width. The Aspect Ratio is typically expressed in increments of 5, such as 60, 70, and 75.  So, on a 206/60/15 tire, the Aspect Ratio is 60% of the section width.

Another piece of information is the tire type.  There are two basic types of tires:
* R –Radial: A radial tire is one with supporting belts, usually made of steel, running radially around the tire.
* B – Bias: A bias tire (or cross-ply tire) is one with plies that run diagonally from one bead to the other. One ply is set on a bias in one direction, and then succeeding plies are set alternately in opposing directions and cross each other.

The final number in the size of a tire is the Rim Diameter. Tires that have a rim diameter expressed in inches are the most common type used. Tires and wheels that have a rim diameter expressed in half inches (14.5, 15.5, 17.5 and 19.5) are used on some heavy-duty trailers, trucks and box vans.

You can also find important information about your tires by looking at the Unified Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) UTQG lettering. The (UTQG) system measures three things:

Treadwear (520)
This rating indicates a tire’s relative durability, based on government standard testing after about 7k miles of driving on a controlled test course. The rule of thumb is that you can add two zero’s to the number to estimate the average service life you can expect to get from the tire under normal driving conditions.

Traction (A)
This rating is based on government tests to measure a tire’s ability to stop a car moving straight ahead, on both concrete and asphalt surfaces. Tires are assigned traction grades of AA, A, B or C, with AA being the highest.

Temperature (A)
The temperature rating indicates a tire’s relative ability to withstand high operating conditions. Tires are assigned temperature grades of A, B or C based upon testing with A being the highest.

The DOT Number on your tire’s side wall also includes important information.
* The first two characters designate the tire manufacturer and plant code.
* Characters three and four denote the tire size.
* The fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth (optional) characters identify the brand as well as other characteristics important to the manufacturer.
* The final four numbers denote the date the tire was produced.

Information contained in the tire’s Service Description is the tire’s load index and speed rating. The Load Index is an important number regarding towing or hauling. Load index numbers range from 75 (load carrying capacity of 852 pounds per tire) to 125 (3638 pounds per tire).  The Speed Rating indicates how the tire is rated for its capacity to perform at high speeds as tested by the U.S. Government and is represented by letters Q through Z. In general, a higher speed rating will result in better overall handling.

Remember, your tires are your only connection between you and the road. Now that you know the language of tires, remember to treat them well.

Tire Store Coupons Help Save Nearly 75%

Tire store coupons can add up to big savings, especially in today’s tight economy. In fact, with just a click of a mouse, online coupons can help you save up to 50% compared to what you might pay at a domestic or import auto dealership. Add the“$20 Off Any Purchase” coupons some tire stores are now offering and you can save nearly 75%.

In a recent mystery shop, a brand name replacement tire for a domestic SUV was $155 at a dealership but only $115 at a local tire store. With a “20 Off Any” coupon the price dropped to only $95. That’s a savings of $60 or almost 40% less for the same tire at the dealership. And, the tire store’s price also included free lifetime spin balancing, free lifetime tire rotation, free nitrogen inflation and free alignment check.

Wheel alignment for the same vehicle was $64 at the dealership but only $48 at the tire store. Using a “10 Off Alignment” online coupon plus a “$20 Off Any” coupon lowered the price to only $18. That’s a savings of $46 over 70%. That’s like having three wheel alignments done at your tire store versus just one at the dealership and still saving $10.

Using a “$20 Off Any” coupon lowered the cost of an oil change at the tire store to an almost unbelievable $12 versus $35 at a dealership. That’s a savings of almost 66%. So, for only $1 more, you can have three oil changes done at the tire store versus just one at the dealership.

Front or rear brake pad replacement plus labor at the dealership was $225 per axle but only $150 per after a “$10 Off Brake Service” online coupon plus a “$20 Off Any” coupon from the tire store. That’s a savings of 33% or $75 per axle versus pads and labor at the dealership.

The same coupon magic also works if you own an import. A brand name replacement tire was $185 from an import dealership versus only $140 after a “$20 Off Any” coupon from the tire store. That’s a savings of $45 or nearly 25%. So, for only $5 more, you can get four brand name replacement tires versus only three from the import dealership.

Wheel alignment was $98 at the import dealership but only $34 after coupons at the tire store. That’s a saving of $64 or over 65%. So, for only $4 more, you can have three wheel alignments done at the tire store versus just one at the import dealership.

Using the “$20 Off Any” coupon also lowered the cost of an oil change for the same import car to only $25, versus $98 at a dealership. That’s a savings of nearly 75%. So, for only $2 more, you can have four oil changes done at the tire store versus just one at the dealership. And, the same “$20 Off Any” coupon can also be applied to a 10,000-mile discount synthetic change.

Using a “$10 Off Brake Service” online coupon plus a “$20 Off Any” coupon, can also save from 50% to almost 60% on brake service.  Front pads and labor at the import dealership was $375 versus only $187 after coupons at the tire store. That’s a savings of $188 or 50%. Rear pads and labor was $375 but only $156 after coupons at the tire store. That’s a savings of about 60% or almost $220 back in your pocket.

Shopping for Winter Snow Tires

In Michigan it is almost impossible to predict the winter weather, but drivers can always expect to travel in moderate to severe snow during much of the season. A qualified tire professional can recommend that your car be fitted with a set of winter tires (also known as snow tires) to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers during the harsh winter months, even if your vehicle already has all-season tires on it.

Today, most cars come equipped with all-season tires as indicated by the M+S (mud and snow) markings on the sidewall. These tires are not designed to be best in one specific weather condition but are meant to be adequate in all weather conditions. An all-season tires’ tread design is not as defined as a winter tire’s tread and is not as flexible in the cold. The tread of an all-season tire can quickly get packed with snow creating low traction much more quickly than the deep tread of a winter tire.

Winter tires, as indicated by a mountain / snowflake symbol on the sidewall, will give you better traction, braking ability and maneuverability you’ll need to drive safely on snow and ice. They are made from different rubber compounds than all-season tires and have specific tread patterns designed for the winter conditions. They are fashioned to prevent snow buildup and to help maintain traction on ice and packed snow.

Winter tires are rated based upon actual testing. For example, a test performed with two identical vehicles, one fitted with winter tires and the other with all-season tires, showed that the vehicle with winter tires traveling at 15 mph on ice stopped from 1/2 to a full car length shorter than identical vehicle with all-season tires.

Never reduce your all-season tires’ inflation to attempt to increase traction and match the performance of more flexible winter tires. Driving on underinflated tires of any kind in any season is dangerous. Always maintain proper tire pressure at all times.

Winter Tires Purchasing and Installation Tips

There are few things to keep in mind when shopping for and installing winter tires:

  • Don’t put it off until the severe winter weather hits; have your car fitted in the fall. Be prepared and don’t get caught in a situation that might lead to a shortage of winter tires around you.
  • Consider purchasing separate rims for your winter tires. This will save you the time and costs involved in balancing the winter tires onto your existing rims.
  • Never mix winter tires with all-season tires. Keep an even tread depth, consistent tire design and similar rubber compound across all four wheels to ensure the best maneuverability. Never put winter tires on just the drive wheels of your car.
  • If you are unsure which winter tire to choose pick the one that offers more tread. A deeper tread will grip the icy roads better than a lower tread.
  • If you already have a set of winter tires, again, don’t wait until the last minute to have them installed. A good guideline for installing your winter tires is to have them installed once the temperature is regularly 50 degrees or less. This will ensure that they do not wear prematurely in warmer weather. Also, remember to have them removed when the weather stays consistently above 50 degrees.

It is important to understand that cars outfitted with electronic driver assistant features such as an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and traction control do not have more traction than vehicles that do not offer this equipment. These aids only help prevent the driver from over braking or overriding the amount of available traction in their tires. The only way a vehicle can experience an increase in traction is to install tires best suited for the terrain, season and the vehicle itself.

Whether you’re selecting winter tires, all-season tires or any other type of tires, be sure to select the tire that meets your vehicle specifications. An ASE certified technician can help with all related technical details and get you on the road with the tire that’s right for your vehicle, driving style and budget.

Tire Companies Offer No Appointment Necessary Windshield Repair

After a tiny chip in a neighbor’s windshield turned into an expensive full windshield replacement, I decided to have a small chip in my windshield repaired. Deciding where to have it done was an interesting learning process. I ultimately had it repaired at my local tire company, and for some important reasons.

No Appointment Necessary

Car owners who once ignored small windshield chips and cracks caused by a flying stone have learned even the smallest chip or crack can spread over an entire car windshield, especially in very cold weather. After checking with my local dealership, an auto glass repair shop and my local tire company, I found all three offered windshield repair and replacement services. However, the local tire company was the only one where no appointment was necessary. During a quick phone conversation, the store manager also pointed out some additional advantages of having the repair done there.

  • Unlike some other repair systems, the high-tech liquid resin and UV light system used requires no waiting or drying time.
  • Most chips and cracks less than a quarter in diameter could be repaired in less than 25 minutes.
  • If full replacement was necessary, mobile service was also available, just in case I was too busy to have it done at the store.
  • Whether I needed a repair or replacement, the store manager also offered to contact my insurance company to see if any deductible might be waived, so a repair might actually require little or no out of pocket expense on my part.


Both the auto glass repair shop and my local tire company assured me that any repair or replacement would be made to Auto Glass Repair Safety Standards (AGRSS).  Both use top quality Original Equipment products or Original Equipment Equivalent replacement glass products.

Technicians at both stores also receive extensive training and use the latest equipment to ensure every glass repair or replacement is made to the highest quality factory and national safety standards. After all, a faulty repair or improper windshield replacement could become a serious safety hazard. The windshield is an essential part of every vehicle’s driver and occupant safety system. In the event of an impact, it allows the airbags to deploy in the correct position. It also prevents you and your family from being ejected from the vehicle during a serious collision. And, in the event of a rollover, the windshield also helps keep the roof from crushing in on you and your passengers. In fact, the windshield provides up to 45% of the cabin’s structural integrity during a frontal or side impact, and up to 60% in a rollover accident.

Convenience Plus

Even if I didn’t know where to go for a windshield repair or replacement, my tire company offered more locations in my area to have it done.  A quick check on the Internet offered me a choice of fifteen different store locations within ten miles of my home. My dealership service department is within that ten mile area but required a service appointment. A national auto glass repair chain offered seven locations within a ten mile area, but also required I make a service appointment.

Another feature I appreciated on the tire company web site was that, after entering my zip code, I was given a list that included the address, phone number, driving distance, store hours and a hot link to each location. A click on the hot link then showed me an exterior photo of the store and also offered a mapping function to help me plan the most efficient driving route from my home directly to the store. In addition, my tire discount also offered a battery check service, free tire inspection and complimentary multi-point vehicle inspection to ensure my car would be ready for even the most severe winter driving.

According to the National Glass Association, over 4 million damaged windshields are repaired annually. So, know you options. Know where to go for no appointment necessary, high quality and convenient windshield repair or replacement before that chip or crack in your windshield turns into a more serious and more expensive problem.

Tire Discounters Offer More

Over the past two decades, we’ve seen tire discounters and auto service centers open an amazing number of new locations across the country. But, make no mistake about it, at these and many no appointment necessary, service while you wait locations, the description discount doesn’t necessarily mean less. In fact, during my search for a new set of replacement tires, I was pleasantly surprised at the high levels of selection, service and professionalism I received.


Most tire discounters and auto service centers offer a wider selection of name brand tires than your car dealer’s service department or your local neighborhood service station. Many offer websites that allow you to select a tire by brand, size or price, view a photo of the tire and tread pattern, and also describe the full range of automotive services offered at that location. During a cyber shopping adventure on one tire store’s site, I was offered a choice of ten different tires from eight different manufacturers, at prices ranging from $80 to $202 per tire. In addition, if the tires you need are not in stock, they can easily be obtained in less than an hour from another nearby store or a conveniently located distribution center.


The need for new tires, other than from normal wear or tire wear caused by improper tire inflation, may often be a warning sign of other less visible vehicle problems that can quickly and easily be addressed at most tire discount stores or auto service centers.

Wheel Alignment – If wheels are not properly aligned, tires may experience excessive toe or camber wear, characterized by thin or even more severe inner or outer edge wear. As a rule, every vehicle should have an alignment done every six months, or every 6,000 miles.

Wheels – A damaged wheel can cause a tire to scrub unevenly against the road surface and severely reduce tire life.

Brakes – If not in good repair, brakes can grab unevenly, causing uneven tread wear or flat spots.

Shock Absorbers – A worn shock might lose its ability to damp out road shocks in normal driving conditions or vibrations at highway speeds. Either condition may cause uneven tread wear and reduced tire life.

Ball Joints – Damaged or worn ball joints may become loose and also cause uneven tread wear.

Suspension and Steering Systems – In addition to possibly compromising your vehicle’s safety and performance, bent, worn or loose components anywhere in the suspension and steering systems can accelerate tread wear by causing the tires to scuff, scrape or scrub unevenly over the road surface.

Tire and Wheel Assembly Balance – If tire and wheel assemblies are out of balance, the result may be patch wear (patchy tread wear or flat spots across the tire surface) or cup wear (diagonal tread wear across the tire surface.) In either case, your vehicle’s suspension and steering systems may need attention.


Most tire discount stores and auto service centers are staffed by knowledgeable and highly trained service professionals. Many service advisors participate in training seminars and workshops, so their fully prepared to help you select the best tire for your specific car, truck or crossover. Some also participate in annual training certification programs sponsored by tire manufacturers, so they’re fully knowledgeable about the latest improvements in automotive technology and tire applications. ASC certified service technicians use state-of-the-art technologies and equipment to make certain your vehicle is serviced correctly. Many participate in hands-on training workshops sponsored by tire manufacturers. Some also participate in annual certification training in specific light duty service and repair areas such as wheel alignment, battery and brake service, steering and suspension systems, air conditioning systems and repairs to other vehicle systems.

The location where I purchased my tires also performed a multi-point inspection of my vehicle. The inspection, conducted by the service manager, noted a loose front ball joint that could soon compromise the safety of my vehicle. I had the problem fixed in a matter of moments and for probably a fraction of the price I’d pay if the ball joint failed in busy city traffic or late at night on a lonely stretch of interstate highway.

So, shop with confidence and shop with care. And remember, at most tire discounters and auto service centers, discount doesn’t necessarily mean less, especially when it comes to selection, service and professionalism.
