Did you know that tires are your car's critical connection to the road and can affect your ride, handling, traction and safety?  And maintaining tire balance and wheel alignment reduces tire wear and improves handling and fuel economy?

Tire replacement is necessary if the tread depth is below the minimum legal requirement, or the sidewalls are severely cracked or punctured.  Road conditions can take their toll on your car's steering and suspension system, and can disrupt the alignment settings.  There are many components in the front end that gradually wear over time.  These components will affect alignment angles and adjustments will need to be made and/or components replaced to restore optimum handling.

It is recommended to have your car's alignment checked at least annually or at first sign of improper handling or uneven wear; tires should be rotated every 6,000 miles; and request a wheel alignment when purchasing a set of new tires.

With Winter right around the corner now is a good time to have the alignment checked; front end components checked; and tire condition checked.  Give your Placerville one stop auto repair shop a call today (530) 621-4591 or visit our website at to schedule an appointment.
