The Rain Is Coming – Wheel Alignment and Tire Check in Santa Cruz, CA
Even though California is suffering from a drought, there are still many rainy days each year. That’s why at Goodyear Tires & Auto Repair we recommend bringing your vehicle in for a wheel alignment and tire check.
We recommend wheel alignment check once a year – properly aligned wheels extend tire life and improve vehicle handling, which is important on wet roads. Our Santa Cruz auto care facility uses state-of-the-art tire alignment machine to get your vehicle’s wheels properly aligned. These machines can detect and correct misalignment so slight that it is not noticeable to the human eye.
We also recommend tire check – we can inspect your vehicle’s tires for signs of age related deterioration, as well as check the tread depth. Tread depth is vital during rain, because tires have to evacuate prodigious amounts of water. If the tread is too low, it increases chances of hydroplaning.
Speaking of rain, it’s a good idea to check the windshield wipers. We rarely used them in the summer, so now is the time to make sure they work correctly, and don’t leave streaks on the windshield.
We can perform all of the above checks in a single visit, so give us a call and make an appointment, so we can get your car ready for the Winter.
