Great deals on brand-new tires

There are so many choices available as you pick out new tires that it can be overwhelming. Our tire experts can offer guidance when you’re ready to make your purchase.

Consider these factors as you make your choice:

  • What size tire do you need? The tire size is found in the owners’ manual or inside the door of the car.
  • What climate do you drive in? Severe conditions affect tires. 
  • How many miles do you expect to get from the tires?
  • What are your driving habits? Do you routinely start and stop quickly, make overly sharp turns or drive over debris?
  • What are the roads like in your driving area? Highway, gravel, unrepaired?

Knowing whether to fix a tire or replace it

You have a flat and aren’t sure it can be saved. You are worried about the cost of replacing it, too. Here are some things to consider:

A tire can safely be repaired if:

  • A puncture is less than a quarter-inch diameter.
  • The puncture is in the tread.
  • There are multiple punctures over a small area (16 inches apart or less). 

The tire should be replaced if:

  • There is a hole or separation in the tread.
  • The sidewall is punctured.
  • There are multiple punctures over an area larger than 16 inches.

We also include Emergency Roadside Assistance for FREE with every tire we sell. Don’t be left on the side of the road again.

What Is a Standard Tire Pressure?

There is an average, which is measured in pounds per square inch (or PSI). The range is 30 to 35 PSI. But it’s more important to find your car’s specific recommended pressure set by the manufacturer. Find it in your owner’s manual or printed inside the glovebox or inside the driver’s door.

Can’t I Just Add Air When a Tire Looks Low?

You may not notice a low tire until it has lost over 50% of its air. Check all your tires yourself once a month with a good tire gauge. Check first thing in the morning while your tires are cold so you get an accurate reading.

What Does TPMS Stand For?

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which gives you an automatic alert on your dashboard when your tire pressure falls below recommended levels. Most cars made after 2006 have the TPMS system.

Do Tires Really Need to Be Rotated?

Yes. The front and rear tires wear differently. Your driving habits also play a role in how your tires wear. Routinely taking fast curves or carrying a lot of weight in the rear of the car can cause uneven wear. Rotating your tires on a regular basis helps the tread on each tire wear more evenly, which can make your tires last longer. It will also give a smoother ride due to a stable driving surface.

Check with our Ontario tire repair shop for advice on how often you should have this service.

What’s the Difference Between Balancing and Rotating Tires?

While rotating tires means moving them from front to back, balancing tires ensures that the tire assembly on each wheel is distributed evenly. Specialized equipment is used to balance tires, along with small weights and positioning.
Each time you get the tires rotated at a tire shop, balancing should be done, too. In between, have the balance checked if your car shakes during driving. This may indicate one or more tires have become unbalanced or they need to be rotated.

Do I Have to Replace a Tire When It Gets a Puncture?

There is no definite answer to this. Some signs of damage are only visible from the inside of the tire, so the tire has to be removed from the wheel first. Our technicians can do this and then let you know whether it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced with a new tire.

Repairing a tire is possible when:

  • There’s a puncture in the tread area and it’s less than ¼ of an inch (6 mm).
  • There are no large punctures, gashes, or cuts longer than ¼ inch.
  • The tire’s steel belt has not been damaged.
  • No earlier repairs have been done in the same area of the tire where the new puncture is.

Do New Tires Go On The Front Or The Back?

Place the new tires on the rear of the vehicle and move the others to the front. This gives the car maximum stability.
