There are many tire shops in and around Dallas. But don’t pick one at random for your car’s tire repair work! Instead, depend on these factors when choosing a shop for tire repair or replacement:

  • A good reputation. A local tire shop that consistently does a good job will have good reviews and positive word-of-mouth recommendations from your friends, family, and coworkers.
  • Qualified employees. The mechanics working at your tire shop of choice should be ASE-certified.

Due to our unmatched customer service and dependable repairs, we are well known as the number one destination for tire-related needs in Dallas and Fort Worth.

Tire Maintenance and Repair Is One of Our Specialties

There are things you can do to help to keep you tires in good condition in between our preventive checks:

  • Check the tire pressure at least twice a month. Buy a tire pressure gauge and ask for help if you don’t know how to use it.
  • Check the tire tread at the same time. Walk around the car and look for areas of uneven wear. Point them out to our tire mechanic as soon as possible.
  • Look for objects in the tread or sidewall of the tire. Don’t remove anything; get safely to Driver’s Edge as quickly as you can.

Don’t skip tire maintenance checks! Those regular checks will save your tires from premature wear and might save your family from danger.

Our ASE-certified tire shop mechanics will:

  • check the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
  • rotate the tires.
  • balance the wheels.
  • check tread for unusual wear.
  • inspect wheel bearing.
  • repair the tires, if necessary.

Tire experts recommend a regular tire maintenance check every 5,000 miles. Ask our Driver’s Edge auto repiar mechanics at our Dallas tire shop what they recommend, too, based on your driving habits. Extremes of temperature in the area, sudden stops and starts, and road conditions where you live affect the life of your tires.

Don’t forget to check your tire’s warranty requirements on frequency of service.

Rotating And Balancing Tires Is Key

High-quality tires are an investment. Regularly rotating and balancing will help you protect it.

Dallas Tire Rotation Service

Each tire on your car or truck wears at different rates. By rotating the tires from one position to another every time you have a tire inspection, you’re making sure the tires wear as evenly as possible. This extends the life of all of your tires and ensures that the vehicle is stable on the road.

Dallas Tire Balancing Service

The tires on any vehicle experience wear and tear, so weight imbalances occur over time that may feel like vibrations in the steering wheel, on the seats, or on the floorboard. The vibrations will become more noticeable the faster the car is moving.

These vibrations are telling you that a wheel assembly is out of balance. If these vibrations aren’t addressed quickly, your tires will begin to wear even faster or more unevenly, plus, your vehicle will begin to use more fuel.

Fixing a Tire Versus Replacing It

Everyone experiences having a tire go flat. At some point, you have to make a decision about replacing or fixing a tire. It’s cheaper to repair it, but is that the right thing to do? A tire can be safely repaired:

  • If the puncture is ¼ inch or less in diameter.
  • If it’s in the tire tread.
  • If there are several punctures, and they are 16 inches apart or less.

However, a tire must be replaced if:

  • There is any separation in the tread.
  • There is a puncture in the sidewall.
  • There are multiple punctures over a larger area of the tire.
  • There has been a previous repair in the same area.

Dallas Tire Shop FAQ

What should I ask when buying tires?

Choosing the best tires for your car can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know what to look for.

Here are some essential questions you can ask to ensure you select the right tires for your vehicle:

  • What tires do you recommend for my driving needs?
  • What is a good price range for tires?
  • Do all tires come with a tire warranty and what is covered under it?
  • What reputable brands do you recommend?

Our service staff and tire specialists at Driver’s Edge tire shop in Dallas can provide insight into the reliability of tires from their experience selling and repairing all kinds of tires. Use our Tire Selector to ensure a particular tire is suitable for your car. Don’t hesitate to ask for our advice as you look for the best deals and the best tires for your particular needs.

We offer many tire coupons and specials! Check them frequently.

Which tires should be replaced first?

Front tires should be replaced first since they wear more quickly. This is because they manage all the drivetrain forces in a front-wheel drive vehicle. They also handle most of the steering and braking forces.

New tires should always go on the rear axle. Vehicle stability comes from the rear tires, regardless of the type of vehicle. Worn rear tires lead to hydroplaning and spin-outs.

When putting new tires on your vehicle, the ideal scenario is to replace all four tires. Sometimes that isn’t possible, though. If you are only able to purchase two new tires, put them on the rear. Their deeper tread will provide the best control and stability possible.

The least desirable situation is replacing only one tire. This is never recommended due to the effect it has on the car’s suspension, transmission, gear ratios, and treadwear on all four tires. If it is unavoidable, here is the rule: Pair the new tire with the one currently on the car having the most tread depth and place those two on the rear axle.

Bring your car into Driver’s Edge tire service for a diagnostic check of your tires and to assess their effect on the rest of the car.

How do I know if I need new tires?

As part of the preventative tire maintenance for your car, walk around the vehicle each time you get gas and look for these signs that a tire needs attention:

  • Cracks, bulges, or gouges: A tire with low pressure or a slow leak will bulge out at the sides.
  • Treadwear: Uneven wear on any tire is a cause for concern. Get it checked.
  • Tire pressure: Improper tire pressure is the leading cause of premature tire wear.
  • Temperature changes: Either extreme heat or extreme cold affects your tires.
  • Vibration: No matter where it’s coming from, an unusual or new vibration is cause for concern.

When you purchase tires, they come with an expected mileage life span. If your tires are approaching this mileage limit, pay particular attention to the signs noted above. You can also check the tread-wear indicators built into the tread grooves of newer tires. They look like small bars of tread and if you can see them, it’s time for new tires.

You can also use the penny method. Insert a penny Lincoln’s head down into the tread. If you can still see the top of his head, it’s time to consider replacing that tire.

Make an appointment at Driver’s Edge for a tire inspection if you see any of these warning signs of tire problems.
