Tire Shop & Services
At Joyce Automotive & Towing, we know that your vehicle’s tires are an essential component of your car. They significantly and noticeably impact performance and safety — quite literally, where the rubber hits the road.
That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of tire services to keep your tires in excellent condition and to keep you safe.
While you probably won’t need to invest in a pair of winter tires in Florida, your location and the weather can still impact your vehicle. As your tire tread wears down, your automobile loses traction and is more prone to hydroplaning or sliding, particularly in wet weather. This is especially true during summer, when rain is more common.
More than just the treads
Tire rotation is a crucial part of tire maintenance, as it helps to ensure that your tires wear evenly. Over time, your front and rear tires will wear down at different rates, and rotation helps to even out the wear and extend their lifespans. We recommend rotating your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, depending on your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations.
Tire alignment is another crucial aspect of tire maintenance. When your vehicle’s wheels are properly aligned, it ensures that your tires wear evenly and that your vehicle handles and steers correctly. Our experienced technicians use advanced alignment equipment to ensure that your vehicle’s wheels are aligned to the manufacturer’s specifications, helping extend your tires’ life and improve your vehicle’s handling and safety.
Check your tread
Here is an old trick to check the tread depth on your tires — the “penny test.” Insert a penny upside down between the tread ribs. If you can see the top of President Lincoln’s head, your tire tread is too low.
Inspecting your tires regularly is essential to keeping them in good condition. While our technicians are always happy to inspect your tires for you, there are a few things you can do yourself to check for wear or damage.
Start by checking the tire pressure regularly, as under-inflated or over-inflated tires can wear down quickly and be dangerous to drive on. You should also inspect your tires’ tread to ensure it’s not worn down too much.
Additionally, it’s important to inspect your tire rims for any cracks or other signs of damage, as damaged rims can cause your tires to wear unevenly and be dangerous to drive on.
Our vehicle shop offers a wide range of tire services, including tire rotation, balance, alignment, and replacement. If you’re looking to buy tires, we can also help ensure you select the best tire size for your vehicle by assessing information like rim diameter and aspect ratio.
We carry a great selection of top-quality tire brands to fit every budget and driving style, and our experienced technicians will help you choose the right tires for your vehicle. Your purchase with us will also have a tire warranty to help you feel confident about your decision.
