Types of Tires

Many manufacturers place all-season tires on all the cars they produce. These tires provide an adequate basic capability for driving in all seasons of the year. However, a basic capability might not be enough—or safe—if you live in snowy, icy climates. In those areas, it’s best to get snow tires during the winter months for better traction.

All-season tires come in either high-performance or grand-touring models: 

Servicing Your Tires for Peak Performance

After you purchase your tires, it’s important to have them serviced regularly to protect your investment. You cannot expect your tires to provide peak performance without some attention on a regular basis. By having our service staff set up a preventive maintenance plan for your tires (as well as all other systems in your car), you’ll be preventing unnecessary wear to your tires, and they will last as long as possible. 

 

Unfortunately, one of the major reasons for expensive car repairs and replacements is driver neglect. Don’t let that happen to you. Superior Tires offers the following services to help your car remain safe and useful to you:

Tire Rotation

One of the most important actions you can take for your tires is to have them rotated periodically. Aside from the fact that tires do wear out eventually, the front end of most cars is usually heavier than the back. Plus, when you stop, the weight of the car moves to the front tires. So, the front tires will wear more quickly than those in the back. 

By having our mechanics move the tires from one position to another, you are making sure the tread is wearing as evenly as possible on each tire. Tires are relatively expensive, and you don’t want to replace them before you have to.

Check your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended schedule for tire rotation. As a general rule, new tires should be rotated at 5,000 miles and then every 5,000 to 7,000 miles after that. If you have any questions on this, discuss it with our tire specialists and get their input.

Tire Balancing

Tires wear out the longer they’re used. Over time, weight imbalances in the tires happen as a normal result of driving. These imbalances will become noticeable to the driver as vibrations in the steering wheel, seats, or on the floorboard. The faster the car goes, the more it will vibrate. 

These vibrations are messages from the tires. Seat vibrations generally mean one or both of the rear tires are unbalanced. Steering wheel vibrations mean the front tires are out of balance. Pay attention to these messages! The longer you allow the vibrations to go on, the faster your tires will wear out—and you will use more gas to operate the car.

 

 

Superior Tires expert mechanics will make sure the weight of your car is evenly balanced on each wheel. They remove the tires from the car and use specialized balancing equipment to determine where the imbalances are. They then attached small weights to the rims to make corrections and then remount the tires. 

Wheel Alignment

This is not the same as balancing tires. Alignment is making sure the tire is in the correct position on the wheel, and it is an adjustment of your vehicle’s suspension. It makes sure your tires are at the correct angles when they make contact with the road.

Tires that are out of alignment reduce the function of the tire and increase gas usage. The car’s engine can be affected, too, making the car dangerous to drive. Here are some signs your car’s alignment is off: 

If you experience any of these issues, bring your car into Superior Tires and have the tires inspected and serviced. 

Flat Tire Repair

A tire can be safely repaired under certain conditions:

Superior Tire repairs tires according to the strictest safety regulations. If it is determined a tire can’t be repaired, our tire specialists will help you pick out new tire replacements. Our first concern is your safety!

Warning Signs for Possible Tire Problems

Here are some other signs that your tires need to be inspected by a professional:

Use events like this to remind yourself to have your tires checked. Experts advise that you have your tires checked every two years at a minimum anyway. If you drive on unpaved or rough roads, gravel roads, or roads that are in poor repair, have the tires checked more often just to be safe.

 

Tire Shop FAQs

How do I know if I need new tires?

Naturally, it can be tempting for Mohave County, Arizona, drivers to get as much mileage out of their existing tires as possible. However, there’s no denying that old tires can be less safe than new ones. That’s especially true if your treads are too worn-out to provide the traction you need. 

 

Fortunately, checking your tread depth is simple—all you need is a standard US penny! To perform the so-called “penny test,” take this coin and insert it into one of your tire grooves with Lincoln’s head facing down. If you can fully see the president’s head, your tires are ready for replacement. 

 

Of course, this isn’t the only sign that your tires have seen better days. Consider getting new tires from our tire shop if you spot any of these issues:

 

How often should you replace tires?

You may have heard that keeping up on tire rotation, wheel alignment, and other services can significantly extend your tires’ lifespan. While this is true, no set of wheels will last indefinitely. Even if your tread wear is okay, it’s wise to replace your tires at least once every six to ten years.

 

Finding out your tire age is more straightforward than you might expect. To get started, find the DOT Tire Identification Number on your sidewall (or ask the team at Superior Tire to do it for you). The last four digits of this number will tell you the week and year when your tire was made. For example, a TIN ending in “0123” means your tire was manufactured during the first week of 2023.

 

Of course, this advice shouldn’t imply that any set of tires will last up to a decade. If you notice any of the tire warning signs covered in our answer to “How do I know if I need new tires,” make a point of visiting our tire shop for new wheels immediately.

How often should you rotate tires?

Tire rotation is intended to promote even tire wear, so it stands to reason that your service schedule will vary based on your driving habits. Generally speaking, drivers whose cars have front-wheel or rear-wheel drive will need to rotate tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Meanwhile, if your car has all-wheel drive, you should rotate your tires more often—every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or so. Still, you’ll need to adjust these suggestions to match how you drive.

 

While keeping up with your tire rotation schedule is essential, this isn’t the only factor you’ll need to consider regarding this auto maintenance task. On top of that, it’s crucial to ensure you’re following the right pattern. These are the three basic patterns for rotating tires:

 

 

Even for seasoned drivers, figuring out when to rotate your tires and what tire pattern to follow can be surprisingly complicated. The good news is that the team at Superior Tire is here to help. Get in touch with our tire shop and let us know what you’re dealing with!

Should you repair a tire or replace it?

We know “it depends” isn’t the most satisfying answer to a frequently asked question like this. However, the truth is that it’s hard to say whether you need tire repair or tire replacement without more information. With that out of the way, we’d be happy to give you a look at the factors separating these two tire-related tasks.

 

Even if your tire is punctured, a replacement may not be inevitable (for the time being, at least). Punctures with a diameter smaller than a quarter inch are good candidates for repair. Still, you might need to replace your tire if your puncture is unusually long or oddly shaped. No matter what your tires are dealing with, reach out to Superior Tire as soon as you notice an issue. We’ll be able to handle any tire repair or replacement tasks you need at a fair price, all while offering money-saving coupons and rewards!

How do I know if I need an alignment or balance?

Wheel alignment is an essential service that will allow your tires to meet the road at the correct angle. Any of these alignment warning signs can indicate that you’re overdue for tire alignment service:

 

 

Unlike wheel alignment, tire balancing involves checking your wheels’ weight and installing weights on any tires that need them. You might require this service if you spot issues like:

 

What are four common symptoms of tire problems?

There are countless signs that can let Mohave County drivers know their tires need attention. However, some of these signs are far more common than others. Be sure to set up an appointment at your closest Superior Tire location immediately if you notice:

 

Bulges or bubbles. These spots aren’t just unsightly—they can actively reduce your wheels’ structural integrity. Since bulges and bubbles create weak spots in your tires, tires with these issues have an increased risk of blowouts.
