MOUNTING & BALANCING
We include mounting and balancing with every tire that we sell at I & A Automotive. These services are part of our. After mounting your new tires and inflating them to the auto manufacturer’s specifications, our technicians use special equipment to spin your tires at high speed to detect small imbalances. These are corrected by attaching zinc weights to the rims or spokes. If your tires are noisy or shimmy, it could be time for a rebalance.
Tires are a significant investment. To get the most out of your investment, visit your neighborhood I & A Automotive location to have your tires rotated every 6,000 miles, or according to the schedule in your owner’s manual. This ensures even tread wear. Questions about the proper schedule and pattern for your vehicle? Ask the pros at I & A Automotive.
A flat tire is a deflating experience. When it happens to you, visit your neighborhood I & A Automotive location for a FREE repair. Repairable punctures are:
- 1/8 inch or less
- In the center tread
- Not on the shoulder or belt edge
Our repair system seals both the hole in the tread and the inner liner. This prevents the steel belting from rusting and causing a weak spot.
Proper tire inflation is the most important thing you can do to take care of your tires. Your car or truck’s handling is at its safest and most responsive when your tires are “just right.” Under inflation (and over inflation) causes:
- Uneven tread wear…your tires wear out before their time
- Flat tires and blowouts*
- Reduced fuel economy
You get up to 3 percent better gas mileage by keeping your tires inflated to the correct pressure.** That’s a savings of more than $100 per year, assuming you drive the national average 12,000 miles per year, get 25 mpg, and pay $3.90 per gallon for gas.
Visit I & A Automotive and we’ll gladly check your tires for free. You’ll find the inflation specifications for your tires in your owner’s manual or on the vehicle placard—a plate or sticker often placed on the driver’s door post, in the glove box, or on the fuel door.
