Top-Quality Professional Tire Services
Our ASE-certified technicians can not only help ensure that you have the best new tires for your vehicle (and budget), but they can also take care of important tire maintenance services. Each BRAKEmax Tire & Service Centers location offers new tire installation and mounting, as well as:
A properly balanced tire ensures that the weight is evenly distributed around the entire diameter of your wheel. This is important in helping to avoid excessive vibration and uneven tread wear, which can lead to a need for tire repair or even early replacement.
Your vehicle’s tires wear at varying rates. Regular tire rotations will ensure that your tires wear more evenly, extending the life of the tire tread. The best routine to follow is to have your tires rotated at the same time as each oil change.
Uneven tire wear can also be minimized when your vehicle’s wheels are in proper alignment. A wheel alignment service ensures that your wheels or tires are in proper position relative to each other and the road and that they are spinning optimally. Your vehicle’s alignment should be checked at least once a year or after hitting a pothole, curb, or other obstacle.

How to Extend the Life of New Tires
Brand-new tires can definitely be an investment. But having good tires on your vehicle is a necessity for both its handling and your safety on the road. By being mindful of a few things and including your tires in your preventative maintenance routine, you can help keep your tires in good shape longer.
Some of the ways you can extend the life of your tires include:
1. Check Your Tires’ Air Pressure Regularly
Maintaining proper air pressure is one of the easiest ways to extend the life of tire tread. Improper air pressure can increase the wear and tear on your tires and increase the risk of a blowout. It can also increase stopping distance, cause sluggish handling, and reduce your fuel mileage. So, ensuring that your tires are at the proper pressure not only helps extend the life of your tires, but also ensures your vehicle’s safety, and saves you money at the pump.
2. Rotate the Tires Every 5,000 Miles
In most cases, only two wheels “drive” the vehicle at a time, which naturally causes uneven tire wear. On front-wheel drive vehicles, the front tires wear faster, and on rear-wheel-drive vehicles, the back tires will wear faster. All-wheel drive vehicles can also see uneven wear when they routinely shift the drive from one wheel to another. Having your tires rotated to different positions on the vehicle roughly every 5,000 miles will help even out tread wear and help your tires last longer.
3. Keep Your Tires Balanced
Every wheel assembly has a heavy spot in it. No tire is perfect, even when brand new, and even a tiny difference in weight can cause vibration and uneven wear while driving. Having your tires’ balancing checked regularly will help ensure this doesn’t happen. As the tires wear, the tiny weights used to balance the tire may need to be changed or moved. When you are having your tires rotated, it’s also a great time to get them balanced.
4. Have Your Alignment Checked Twice a Year
The smallest misalignment of your vehicle can increase uneven tread wear and reduce fuel efficiency. So, the best routine is to have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked every six months. Hitting a large pothole or curb can also knock the alignment out, so if that happens bring your vehicle in to be checked ASAP. An alignment problem can cause your vehicle to actively pull to one side or cause the steering wheel to vibrate.
5. Be Mindful of Your Driving Habits
When tires are squealing, that sound you hear is the rubber of the tread being left on the road. Grinding them on curves does just as much damage. So, if you want your tires to last, be mindful of your driving habits, and take it easy on the road. This is especially true on bad roads or broken pavement.

What Do All of the Letters and Numbers on the Tire’s Sidewall Mean?
The chain of letters and numbers stamped onto the tire’s sidewall is where you’ll find important information like the type and size of the tire. The first letter in the chain indicates the tire type. A “P” indicates a passenger tire, while an “LT” indicates a light truck tire.
After the first letter(s), you’ll see three numbers before a slash. These numbers indicate the width of the tire tread, or section width, in millimeters. Then, after the slash and before the “R” are two numbers that indicate the aspect ratio. This is expressed as the percentage of the tire tread that is the sidewall; the larger this number, the larger the sidewall. Finally, the last two numbers after the “R” indicate the rim’s diameter in inches.
As an example, let’s say that the series of letters and numbers on a tire is P245/45R18. This would mean:
It’s a passenger tire.
The section width is 245mm.
The aspect ratio is 45, meaning the sidewall height is 45% of 245mm, or 110.25mm.
The rim diameter is 18in.
The experts at any one of our convenient tire stores in Tucson can help you decipher this information on your tires and pinpoint the perfect replacement tires for your vehicle. We also frequently offer great deals to help make getting new, high-quality tires even more affordable.
If I Have Two Good Tires and Two Worn Tires, Where Should the Good Tires Go?
Should I Also Have a Wheel Alignment Done When I Get New Tires?
One of the best ways to protect and help extend the life of your new tires is to make sure that they are in proper alignment from the start. When they are, your tires will be spinning properly and in the optimal position relative to each other and the road. This significantly helps minimize uneven tire wear and allows your tires and suspension to perform optimally.
This is also why regular alignment checks are so important. Misalignment can easily be caused by things like hitting a large pothole or driving over a curb. If you’ve experienced something like this recently, or you’re noticing an increase in wear along a tire’s outer edge, bring your vehicle in for an alignment check ASAP.
