Tire Rotation

Tire rotation is a critical service because proper rotation can help to reduce uneven tread wear and maximize the life of your tires. Depending on the location of the tire, it will interact with the road differently than the other three tires. This is because each tire has different stress and weight distribution. When too much time is spent in the same location, the tread in a specific area can wear out more quickly than the other tires’ tread. This will often cause premature tire failure and require that you purchase new tires more quickly.  When you regularly rotate the tires, it can help to extend the life of the tires as it relieves the tire of recurring pressure and stress. 

Features

  • Rotation of tires on your vehicle to optimize tread life in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation

    • Note: If the difference between the front tire tread depth and the rear tire tread depth is less than or equal to 2/32″, a standard tire rotation may be performed. If the tread depth differential is greater than 2/32″, the two tires with the greatest amount of remaining tread must be placed on the rear axle.

  • Tightening of lug nuts to manufacturer’s torque specification

  • Check and set tire pressure to your vehicle’s specification

In a tire and wheel assembly, there needs to be an even distribution of weight. Unfortunately, it is easy for the weight distribution to change over time as the tires and wheels wear. If you frequently drive on rough or bumpy roads, you may notice the tell-tale symptoms even sooner. A rumbling vibration is more than an annoyance to the driver; this can cause serious problems in the vehicle’s suspension over time. At 5 Star Auto Spa, our technicians use a computerized machine and small weights to carefully test and adjust the balance of each wheel to ensure that your vehicle gets you where you need to go, safely and smoothly. 

Features
  • Mounting each wheel on a state-of-the-art dynamic computer-controlled spin balancing machine

  • Establishing optimal balance of the tire/wheel assembly by correcting any type of imbalance

  • Checking and setting tire pressure to your vehicle’s specification

  • Balancing for the life of the tire

Whether you need all new tires due to normal wear and tear, or are simply replacing a flat or damaged tire, a new tire needs to be mounted properly on the wheels and rims and then installed onto the axle of the car.

Once each tire has been mounted, they also need to be properly balanced to ensure that the wear patterns are even. At 5 Star Auto Repair in Winchester, VA, our tire experts are here to ensure that your wheels will keep you moving all year long.

Features
  • Safe removal of tire from vehicle

There are a multitude of different hazards on the road, many of which are not even noticeable to the driver until they cause a problem. A sharp nail, stone, or other pointy piece of debris can lodge itself into your tire and cause a major air leak. The longer you drive on a flat (or flattening) tire, the less likely it is that you will be able to have it repaired.

If a motorist travels for too long on a flat tire, it can eventually cause damage to the rim that cannot be repaired. Whenever you have a flat tire, it is critical that you bring it into a professional auto care shop to have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Features
  • Complete internal & external inspection of damaged tire\(s\) to determine if repairable

  • Safe, reliable repair from inside tire

  • Rebalancing of wheel

  • Treadwear evaluation of all tires and a tire pressure check and adjust
