Duke's Getting New Tires in Los Altos


Round and round we go.  Do ever feel like your spinning your tires?  Well, maybe it's time for new tires.  Duke here and today we are going to bark about getting new tires so let's get the wheels in motion and start bark'in.

There are so many tire choices in the Los Altos area that selecting the right one can be a bit overwhelming for drivers. And even though it's kind of fun to have new tires on your vehicle, they're a significant investment for most Los Altos area folks so you want do it right.

Tip: talk with your friendly and knowledgeable Allied Auto Works tire professional. He'll help you sort through the choices.

Here are some of the issues you'll talk about: One is size – you know, all those numbers on the side of the tire. The right size is. All new vehicles are required to have stability control, which, along with other important safety systems, is calibrated to work with specific tire sizes. Your Los Altos tire professional can help stay within the manufacturer's specifications or program a different tire size into your vehicle's computer.

And you'll want to discuss how and where you drive to determine the type of tire you need: summer, winter,  all season tires or all-terrain. There are tires for every Los Altos auto owner's needs.

As we said, tires are a big investment, so you want to get a good value on tires. Now, that doesn't always mean the cheapest tire. A top-tier tire from Allied Auto Works will last a long time and give Los Altos drivers good performance throughout its life. Tires sold in Los Altos bargain tire shops may not live up to that promise. Again, your friendly and knowledgeable Allied Auto Works tire professional can give you options that offer the best long-term value within your immediate budget.

Last, with a 2-wheel drive vehicle, it's to always replace both tires on an axle. Modern sensors and computer safety systems for vehicle brakes, stability and traction control need both tires to have the same amount of wear to work properly. And always put the new tires on the rear so you don't fishtail in a turn. With all-wheel drive, you should replace all four tires at the same time.

Schedule a tire inspection at Allied Auto Works to see how much life is left in your vehicle tires and seek the help of a professional when choosing new shoes for your vehicle.

Give us a call.

Here is my tire joke for the week,

"What do you call a Harley Davidson with no tires? ~ A groundhog."
