Wheel Alignment Service
Camber is the measure of the degree of perpendicular offset from the road surface. Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot, which is attached to the suspension, and when this angle is out of alignment, straight-line tracking is affected. Toe refers to the angle of directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle. The front and rear wheels…
Tire Service Center
Although tires are easily maintained, they are often overlooked. Tire service is vital for getting the most out of your tires by maximizing mileage and tread wear. Our ASE-certified technicians will help you understand the basics of tire care and maintenance, like when you should seek a tire rotation, balance, and alignment.
Tire Rotation Service
Our tire rotation service involves changing the position of your vehicle’s tires in order to reduce massive tread differentiation between them. Tires tend to exhibit differing amounts of tread wear, because each tire does not deal with exactly the same types or amounts of stress as its companions. Rotating the tires is an effective way to deal with uneven tread wear.
Wheel Balancing Service
Computerized wheel balancers are highly accurate machines that identify the weight distribution problem areas within an assembly. Ideally, a tire and its wheel should complement one another, with both maintaining an equal amount of weight throughout the assembly. At Ramona Tire, we used computerized wheel balancers at all of our locations.
There are many hazards that can make tires less effective and a danger to drivers and passengers. It is not uncommon for a sharp objects and road debris to puncture a tire. Because flat tires are dangerous to use, it is advised that motorists only drive on them in extreme circumstances, such as when they need to reach safety from a busy highway.
A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. At the first sign of trouble, it’s important for you to get your brakes serviced.

Oil Change Service
An oil change and filter replacement is one of many preventative maintenance services that help promote maximum vehicle performance while extending the life of your vehicle. Oil is responsible for lubricating the working components inside your vehicle’s engine while reducing the amount of friction between them.
Car Engine Repair
Every vehicle built since 1996 has been equipped with an on-board diagnostics system that monitors engine performance. Discrepancies in performance levels are reported through your vehicle’s computer system. Once the “check engine” or “service engine” light is displayed, your next step should be…
Car Battery Service
Your vehicle’s starting and charging system is involved in regulating multiple electrical processes to start your vehicle’s engine and keep it running. The starting system consists of the battery, a starter motor, and a starter solenoid responsible for starting the engine, while the charging system consists of an alternator and voltage regulator.
Cooling System Service
In your vehicle, fuel is converted into heat energy, which means the internal temperatures in your engine compartment can increase dramatically in a short period of time. If your engine overheats, it can cause major damage to various components and cost you a significant amount of time and money to fix.
The radiator on your car helps keep your engine cool. An overheated engine will lead to a breakdown, so radiator maintenance is very important to the overall functionality of your vehicle. The radiator sits at the front of the engine bay and is constructed with slim, hollow channels that run from the inlet tank to the outlet tank.
Car Water Pump Repair
When your car is running, the engine gets hot. Between combustion and all those moving components, there’s a lot of heat being generated – so the cooling system was put into place to dissipate (remove) that heat from the system.
The cooling system works by circulating…
The steering and suspension system on your vehicle is responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. It also helps drivers remain in control of their vehicles at all times. The suspension system converts forward energy created by bumps in the road into vertical energy that travels up into the vehicle frame.
Car Maintenance Service
Car maintenance is the care and protection of your vehicle against potential major auto repairs. Negligence is the most common and costly way to see money wasted on repairs that could have easily been prevented through regular service intervals. Depending on your vehicle’s manufacturer…

The differential is responsible for transferring engine power to the wheels. It also compensates for and adjusts to the differences in wheel speed as your vehicle moves through turns. When your vehicle navigates a turn, the inside wheel turns slower than the outside wheel, which has to…
Located on the underside of your vehicle, the exhaust system is responsible for collecting and directing harmful emissions away from the vehicle, reducing the amount of pollutants released into the environment, and minimizing engine exhaust noise and force. The exhaust system is composed of pipes and tubing…
