Tires are the only part of your vehicle that have contact with the road. You need them in good condition so you can drive safely and comfortably to any destination.
At Independent Auto and Diesel Repair, we provide various tire services in Jamestown, TN, like balancing, rotation, and new tire installation. We also check for tread depth, separation, uneven wear, tire pressure, and other issues.
A foreign object (such as a nail) can puncture your tires. Sometimes, we can still repair the hole with a patch or a plug (depending on the hole’s size). Check with a tire mechanic if such a repair is a valid option.
There are many cases, though, when tires are in less-than-optimal condition for repair. Attempting to do so will just put you at risk for a car wreck.
When you keep your vehicle’s tires in good condition, they will last longer. And we can help you achieve that with the following services:
New Tire Installation: If your tires are irreparable, we can replace them with new ones. We can also help you choose summer, winter, or all-season tires to ensure your tires are fit for various road conditions.
Tire Pressure Adjustment: Checking and adjusting the tire pressure at least every two weeks can prevent some uneven wear. If the air pressure is too low, the outside edges of the tire will wear faster than the middle. If the air pressure is too high, the center of the tire tread will wear faster.
Tire Balancing: Tires that are not balanced cause feathering, usually on the tire’s edges. Keeping the tires balanced not only prevents some uneven wear. It also keeps you safe, as an unbalanced tire could cause you to lose control.
Tire Rotation: Tires do not wear the same on all four corners. Thus, whenever you get an oil change, you should have your rotated (like moving a front tire to the back). Rotating their placements prevents one tire from wearing out sooner than the others.
Whether you need new tires or other tire services, we got you covered. We have skilled, ASE Certified mechanics in Jamestown, TN that will work on your vehicle.
We utilize digital vehicle inspection (DVI) to send you pictures of what’s wrong with your vehicle. We do a complete safety inspection to uncover issues not obvious at first glance. We specialize in repairing light-duty diesel vehicles, but we also work on gas-powered ones.
