Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Pointe AutoTech.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Pointe AutoTech has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 313-886-2886 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Pointe AutoTech, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Pointe AutoTech to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
I took my car here and I was very satisfied with the work done. I've been to other shops and I felt like I was getting ripped off but here I was very pleased with everything. The mechanics at the shop were very honest.
Honest, quick, cheap. Excellent service and down to earth guys.
Being female has put me at the mercy of a wide variety of auto technicians. Pointe Auto, in particular, Mike has restored my faith when it comes to finding an honest repair facility, especially when working on the older vehicle. His place of business was put on the radar for me when the dealership actually refused to work on my van. The tow driver who was not allowed to even unhook the vehicle was directed to Pointe Auto. It was a blessing in disquise. At every turn they have gone out of their way to insure that I could get back on the road safely. I am greatly indebted to their great professional service. They are highly recommended by me for their wonderful service.
