Duke's Automotive Tips: Where Should New Tires Be Placed


Round and round we go, where we stop nobody knows ....except your car.  Hi Duke here and are you planning on buying new tires soon?  Maybe you only need 1 or 2 and you are wondering where they should be placed on the car.  Well, I'm here to help solve that mystery so let's get barkin'! 

When Los Altos drivers need to replace tires, they need to know how many they should get and on which axle they should be placed. Replacing a damaged tire may leave you with three others with significant wear, which could affect your traction control, stability control, and anti-lock brake systems.

If you can’t afford to replace all four tires at once, you should at least replace two on the same axle. New tires should always be put on the rear axle for stability in slippery conditions. Your friendly and professional Allied Auto Works tire professional can help you know when your worn tires should be replaced, if you can have a damaged tire repaired as well selecting the right tires for your needs.

Give us a call here at Allied Auto Works.

A bad attitude is like a flat tire, you can't go anywhere until you change it,
