TIRES

Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.

We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.


Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 904-731-5065 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

Tire Inspection
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.

Tire Rotation
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.

    After exhausting all other options to find a another alternator for my home generator I went and saw Harry at Viking. Within hours he had a replacement and later that day it was installed. Before going to Viking I had given up hope. These guys came through and made the impossible a reality. Highly recommend them!!

  • -Pamela C.

    Left my car late on Sunday night because the dashboard warning lights had gone crazy and worst of all my power steering was not working. Viking called the next morning with the diagnosis, turns out it was the alternator, and the estimate. Repair was completed in a timely manner and I have my vehicle back. Thank you gentlemen for the great work!


  • -Shan S.

    I picked up my car today. Very clear explanations from Staff, regarding my repairs. The price was also reasonable for my oil pan assembly install. Mike, also informed me of additional detail regarding my vehicle... I will recommend anyone to seek Viking, before seeking Dealerships!
