the benefits of tire rotations and wheel balancing

Taking care of your car tires should be at the top of every vehicle owner’s to-do list. Tires are some of the most important safety features of your car. After all, they are the only components that touch the road. They can also be quite expensive to replace, which is why it is important to extend their wear.  To make sure your tires last longer and keep you riding safely on the road, make sure you perform regular tire rotations and wheel balancing at Sil’s Complete Auto Care Centre.

Tire Rotation

Naturally, on all vehicles, front tires wear more because they handle your turns and carry on slightly more weight. It is especially true in front-wheel drive vehicles. Tire rotations ensure all your vehicle’s tires wear at the same rate by switching the position of the tires periodically. When you bring your vehicle to our shop, we will move the front tires to the back, and back to the front. Some automakers may prefer to change the position in a cross-rotational pattern. We can do it according to your manufacturer’s preferences.

Typically, you can find your tire rotation interval recommendations in the car’s owner’s handbook. However, most people get their tires done every 6 months or at every oil change. That way you have a simple way of keeping track of both.

Wheel Balancing

Have you ever felt wobbly or shaky driving? That usually means it is time for a wheel balancing service. This procedure involves adjusting the weights of your wheels to balance them out. The changes may be very subtle, but they can go a long way in keeping your ride stable and smooth. And a wheel balancing service will eliminate any tire vibrations to ensure your tires wear longer. We recommend having this done every 1-2 years.

If you need a tire rotation or wheel balancing service, please do not hesitate to call or visit Sil’s Complete Auto Care Centre soon.

Another great experience at Sil’s. The experienced team provided a detailed estimate including photos, a loaner car and necessary, quality work. They changed my tires, replaced brakes, treated or replaced several fluids and got my car ready for spring travel. Thanks Sil’s for keeping my car safe and reliable!

Have gone multiple times. Last time I went they noticed I had tires in my trunk but realized I didnt book a tire swap. They called me to clarify if that was something I wanted. SInce it was the main reason I went I was very happy they called.

It was a great experience at Sil's Auto Centre. I would recommend it to my friends. Let me summarize my experience in sequence: excellent advisor, drop-off to home, quick service, excellent bill explanation, electronic bill and work update, and finally, pick up from home to take the vehicle after service is done. Please keep up the excellent work.

I absolutely LOVE Sil's Auto. Carlo, Susan, Tommy and their great team of mechanics take the cake for me. Their work is a 10/10 and the trust factor is reinforced over time. I would recommend anyone to Sil's without hesitation.
