Servicing Tires In Raleigh

Creech Import Repair’s friendly auto mechanics provide all of the tire services you need to keep your car safe and on the road. These services include:

Tire Rotation

You should get a tire rotation according to your manufacturer’s specifications. For most vehicles, this means taking your car in for service every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. By doing so, you enable your tires to last longer. Rotation prevents premature tire wear and saves you money in the long run. This is also an excellent time to get an oil change for your car or truck.

Rotating your tires is just as it sounds, moving them from one side of your vehicle to another or transferring them from the front axle to the back. This service can include a combination of these actions, too. By doing so, you help them to last longer. It prevents uneven tire wear, poor performance, and reduced fuel economy.

Tire rotation services include:

  • Removal
  • Inspecting patterns of wear
  • Mounting at the optimum position for even wear
  • Resetting pressure monitors when needed
  • Flat Repair

A flat tire is never convenient. More often than not, drivers find this problem when they need to get on the road and to their destination on time. When this happens, the experts at Creech Import Repair can plug a nail puncture, fix the flat or find the right new tires after a blowout.

A flat tire can happen for a number of reasons. You possibly ran over a nail, glass, or other sharp objects. Maybe you had an undetected slow leak, the tire was dry rotten or you experienced a sidewall puncture. Whatever the cause of your flat tire or blowout, Creech Import Repair can quickly provide the repair services and traction you need to get back on the road.

Our flat repair services include:
  • Dismounting and tire inspection
  • Flat tire repair
  • Proper plugging and patching
  • Wheel assembly and tire rebalancing
  • TPMS reactivation

If you suspect a slow leak, bring your vehicle into Creech Import Repair in Raleigh for an inspection. We can properly repair tread punctures, prevent additional damage, ensure it maintains the proper air pressure, and, overall, help you extend the life of the damaged tire.

Tire Balancing

Maintaining the right tire and wheel balance is hugely important for many reasons. Such as offering optimum road handling of vehicles, thus maximizing the safety for those inside the car and also other drivers. Keeping tires and wheels properly balanced also plays a huge role in the life expectancy of the tire. Poorly balanced tires usually have erratic and irregular tread wear. Additionally, this service also reduces tire noise. If you feel a vibration or hear your tires as you drive, you probably need your tires balanced. Creech Import Repair in Raleigh also provides this service with every tire change.

Our balancing service includes:
  • Removal of your tires and wheels
  • Mounting the wheels on a balancing machine
  • Spinning the wheels to ensure an evenly balanced weight
  • Locating imbalance
  • Attaching lead weight where needed on tires to bring them into balance
  • Remounting tires and wheels

Remember, rotating and balancing every 3,000 to 6,000 miles is the only way to get the most out of your automobile’s tires. If you notice steering wheel, seat or floorboard vibration when driving on the highway, bring your vehicle into Creech Import Repair for this service. Also, do so if you notice cupped or scalloped wear patterns on your tires.

Creech Import Repair maintains only the best and most up to date tools and equipment. Of course, this includes our tire and wheel tools and machines as well. The Hunter Hammerhead, also sometimes referred to as “the problem solver”, is the top of the line machine for balancing. At Creech, we can fine-tune and achieve nearly perfect tire balance with our road force balancing equipment.

In order to stay safe on the road and also to get the most bang for your buck, properly maintaining tires and wheels is a must! Many people ignore and overlook simple things like inflating and maintaining the proper air pressure. Auto technology offers such convenience. All vehicles built after 2007 come equipped with a simple little device that monitors air pressure constantly in each of your tires. Your vehicle’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) really simplifies tire upkeep. The TPMS warning light will illuminate when one or more of your tire’s air pressure is low and therefore outside of the recommended air pressure range.

Additionally, maintaining the right alignment for your vehicle will make or break the lifespan of a tire. Also, the condition of your vehicle’s steering components plays a heavy role. Extra play in your steering wheel, steering that feels loose or exceptionally wobbly, clunking noises, uneven tire wear, these are all easy to read hints that one or more of your steering components may need to be replaced. Avoiding steering components and or alignment problems such as your car pulling to one side, only heeds the way to rapid, irregular, and premature tire wear.
