INFINITI of South Atlanta understands the importance of maintaining your tires. For that reason, our certified service technicians complete an extensive evaluation of your tires to determine their condition and provide the best solution to extend their life. Tire repair and maintenance is a necessary part of maintaining your vehicle. Worn tires can have a direct affect on your road safety. They can affect vehicle handling, braking, and the overall ride. For optimal performance, it is important that you perform routine tire maintenance.
Below are the following things you can do to ensure your tires are well maintained:
Vehicle manufacturers have certain specifications dictating the angle and position at which the tire must be placed to ensure all four tires are parallel to one another and perpendicular to the ground floor. Having misaligned wheels means your tires are beginning to tilt. This tilt can cause your vehicle to pull to the left or right making turning your car difficult. It also can make your steering wheel crooked when driving straight and cause your tires to squeal. Poorly maintained roads and potholes are the biggest culprit of misaligned wheels. The certified service technicians at INFINITI of South Atlanta perform wheel alignments to ensure your tires are placed on the vehicle according to manufacturer’s specifications. Our service technicians also check alignments on new wheels and existing alignments.

A tire rotation is simply taking your tire off its current position and moving it to another position. It is good practice to rotate your tires approximately every 6,000 miles or every 6 months (whichever comes first). Rotating your tires regularly encourages even wear and tear of your tires, improves performance, and helps to extend their life. During a typical tire rotation, the front wheels are moved to the back and the back wheels are moved to the front or the passenger side wheels are moved to the driver-side and the driver-side wheels are moved to the passenger side. Your certified service technician at INFINITI of South Atlanta will determine which rotation pattern is best suited for your vehicle.
