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.


Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit The Auto Center of South Orlando Inc..

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.

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.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. The Auto Center of South Orlando Inc. has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 407-438-0232 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At The Auto Center of South Orlando Inc., we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

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 The Auto Center of South Orlando Inc. 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.

  • John Dyer is probably the best mechanic in the world !!! I take my vehicles to him if I am having a problem or just routine maintenance. They always do a good job no matter what I need.
    -John L.

  • They saved my butt big time! My boyfriend filled my diesel car full of gas on a Saturday afternoon, and everyone we tried to contact to fix the problem just didn't care or talked to me like I was stupid. But, the guy towing my car pulled up to the shop my insurance company sent me to, and it was closed. So we found this shop. The owner stayed open just for me so I wouldn't be stranded 6 hours away from home for an additional 2 days!! He called a personal friend to see if they could get the gas out of my car, and they came to US!! About 2 hours later, my car was completely fixed, and they didn't rip us off at all. This shop saved the day, and I owe them MANY thanks.

  • We were on our way back to Ohio and had a coolant leak but didn't know where it was coming from. I pulled into their drive as they were closing and he took the time to find out where the leak was and had it fixed up and running in under 30 minutes and we were back on the road and the best part was he was the nicest guy about it even tho I came at closing time and it was extremely inexpensive. I can't thank you enough John Dyer. 6 out of my 5 stars in my opinion, I highly recommend them!!
