TIRES

At Beiler's Auto Repair Inc. we value the safety of our customers above all else. We want to ensure that you get to where you're going every time with a reliable and safe vehicle. A major problem area for the cars and trucks that come into Beiler's Auto Repair Inc., are tires. Your tires are your connection to the road, and without them doing their job properly, all the handling development and safety testing that went into your car may not keep you safe. Here is some basic information on your tires and how to know when the time has come for replacements.



Why are old or bad tires dangerous?

As stated above, your tires are an extremely important component of your car or truck. If you've ever been out of control in a vehicle, you'll know how scary being a powerless passenger inside a two ton metal box can be. Driving on tires that are too old, improperly inflated, out of balance, or not suited to weather conditions can spell disaster for your safe journey. Your tires were designed with a very specific task in mind. Using them improperly can have sudden and catastrophic consequences.



Signs your tires need air

This issue can be fairly simple to spot. If your tire seems to be wider at the part which contacts the road, they probably need to be topped up with air. Driving on under-inflated tires wears them out faster due to uneven pressure on the sidewall and can lead to full-on flats and even end up shredding the tire off the wheel! Low tire pressure ruins your vehicle's fuel economy. If you've ever ridden a bicycle with under-inflated tires you know how much extra effort you have to put in to get moving and stay rolling. On the flip side of this, driving with too much air in your tires is also unsafe. While it's unlikely that hitting a large pothole would cause the tire to burst (remember they're built to last for thousands of miles) having too much air pressure in a tire reduces the size of the contact patch, or the area where rubber meets road. This can lead to less grip and control over your vehicle. Every tire manufacturer prints the correct tire pressure on the side of their tires, so it's easy to find out the perfect pressure for your ride.



Signs your tires are out of tread

As with having over-inflated tires, a lack of tread can lead to less control and worse handling for your car or truck. Your tires' tread patterns help them to hold the road as well as channeling mud and water away from the areas that need to do the gripping. Without enough tread depth, your car can ride up on top of water on the road and cause you a complete loss of control. There are a few common methods of measuring tread depth, such as using a penny to gauge whether or not it's time to replace your tires, but we recommend coming into Beiler's Auto Repair Inc. in Sarasota, FL for a professional opinion on the matter. Not all tires are created equal and must be replaced at different times.



Signs your tires are damaged

Signs that your tires are damaged can come from a few sources. A visual inspection can catch potential problems before they become major issues such as nails or rocks embedded in the tread grooves. Always remember that there's a great deal of pressure contained within your tires. If you see any gashes, bubbles or hear the hiss of air escaping it's best to stay away from that tire and enlist the help of a professional. Believe us, you don't want a tire exploding anywhere near you.


You can sometimes feel tire damage while driving. If your car begins to make strange noises as it goes down the road or the handling suddenly becomes worse you should pull over as soon as it's safe. Driving on a flat is a bad idea, and can often lead to more severe damage to your vehicle.



What can and cannot be repaired

Tires are expensive and we take any opportunity we can to repair them safely and save you money. Small punctures can often be plugged and patched (it should always be both!) but sometimes the tire's day is done. If the puncture is on the outer edge of the tire (outside the tread) it's probably unsafe to repair. The same goes for a tire that's been driven on while flat. In this case the sidewall has become weakened and the tire is no longer safe. As with recommended pressures, each manufacturer has guides for what can and what can't be repaired.


At Beiler's Auto Repair Inc., customer safety is our number one priority. We hope you'll be a little safer with this information. If you'd like to talk about whether your tires may need inspection or replacement, call us at 941-377-0141 or visit us at 5820A Palmer Blvd in Sarasota, FL. Happy travels!

    Beiler's has taken care of my families cars and has for years. My wife's car had a hesitation problem . It turned out to be a transmission issue. Beiler's took the car to a transmission shop, got me a fair quote and the problem was repaired promptly. They even gave me a loaner car while the transmission shop took care of it. And it was comforting to have a reference to a transmission shop I could trust. The problem also was only a transmission repair rather than replacement . So it was not expensive. I highly recommend Beiler's. Tom

    If you are looking for a place to take your vehicles where the staff are honest, will work with you to get the job done in a timely fashion, give you a loaner car if you are in need of one, and you will receive smiles instead of complaints then you will want to go here! They have been keeping our cars running safely for over 20 years now as we pass our older cars on to our driving teenagers YIKES!! Danny Beiler is AWESOME and he employees a great group of people!!

    A friend recommended Beiler's to me because I was looking for an alternative to going back to my dealer. The staff were friendly, professional and polite, the waiting area is clean and comfy and they go out of the way to make your wait comfortable. They did a great job on my initial service so I asked them to quote tires for my wife's car. They came in about 10% under the price I got from a chain tire store so I had them replace our tires the following week. Very satisfied with the work and the experience and happy to have found a new place I can bring our cars when they need service!

    We are here on vacation and the water pump went out on our MKZ. In Ford's great wisdom, they designed these engines with an internal water pump, meaning the whole engine needed to be removed to repair it. Beilers was able to complete the job within a week, greatly appreciated. The shop and staff are very professional and top notch. If we lived in the area all our vehicles would be serviced by them. Highly recommended! Thanks guys.
