Tires are the most important safety feature on your car. Car owners still need to replace their tires throughout the life of their vehicle. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires. The tire installation & balancing team at Loyola Service will make sure that your tires will last a long time.
One of the most important parts of vehicle upkeep is replacing old, worn out tires. Loyola Service offers quality affordable tire services, including new or seasonal tire installation in the North Shore area. Trust our tire installation experts to install your next set of tires.
Routine tire maintenance is important, to keep your family safe, and to ensure your vehicle’s long lifespan. Always check your owner’s manual to find the right tire size to fit your vehicle’s year, make, and model. New tires should be purchased in sets of 4, or at least in matching groups of two on each axle. Ensuring that you purchase your tires in matching sets will keep your tires wearing evenly and extends the life of your new tires. You can shop for new tires on our site by size, brand, or vehicle make, model, and year. Take a look at our stock of new tires, and compare tire specifications and prices before you purchase, to ensure you are getting the best new tires for your needs.
Tire balancing is important to extend the life of your tires and increase the basic safety of your car. Loyola Service is here to help with all of your tire balancing and tire service needs in the North Shore.
Computerized tire balancing is checked on a machine which can detect even ¼ of an ounce of difference in weight around the wheel. Why worry about that small of a weight difference on an object which weighs so much? That tiny amount of weight travels very fast around the axle while you are driving: hundreds of times a minute. This causes enough momentum to create serious vibration and when multiplied times 4 wheels, the wobble really adds up.
Tire balancing takes place any time you replace the tires on your vehicle. Since tires wear depending on driving practices and road problems, uneven wear will start to become noticeable after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of use. Tires must be checked for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our mechanics can help determine whether your tires need to be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.
If you car is pulling to the side or you are experiencing unusual vibration, you may need to have your wheels aligned at Loyola Service. When your vehicle came off the manufacturer assembly line, it came preset with the tires aligned properly. Driving on extremely bumpy roads, through potholes, or hitting curbs can affect your wheel alignment. Loyola Service in Glenview, IL. can set your vehicle straight again with a quality wheel alignment.
Our wheel alignment services give you the best driving experience. Having your tires aligned helps your tires last longer, your vehicle drive smoother, and ultimately keeps your wheels pointed in the right direction. Just like your shoes can wear, so do your tires, and they can wear unevenly if your wheels are not properly aligned.
