I asked to expedite oil change service in order to accommodate another appointment within the hour. They did everything to get me in and out quickly. Thoroughly inspected vehicle and found several additional recommended services from which we prioritized service and follow-up. I did not feel pressured and felt there was a strong customer care ethic in place. Clean and comfortable waiting room. I even think my car came back to me cleaner than when I left it. Very satisfied with service and would return and recommend to others.

Frequently Asked Questions
Tire rotation is one of the simplest but most effective ways to ensure that you get the maximum life from your tires. Each of your tires wears differently—the left rear tire has different forces acting on it from your front right tire, for example. If you leave all of your tires in their original positions for long periods of time, each will have excessive wear where friction is greatest during turning or simply driving straight.
Without regular tire rotation, your tires will develop deep tread wear patterns that can’t be repaired and that can cause your vehicle to pull to one side. If you’ve noticed poor handling and haven’t had your tires rotated every 5,000 to 6,000 miles, book an appointment at your nearest Driver’s Edge location. Our tire technicians can check your tires for wear patterns, proper balance, and more.
It’s not difficult to give your tires their best chance at a long life. Staying on top of a few maintenance tasks is the key:
- Check your tire pressure: For the best fuel economy, driving performance, and tire life, make sure to check your tire pressure at least once a month with a high-quality pressure gauge. Underinflated tires puts more wear and tear on tire tread and reduces handling and overall driving comfort.
- Regularly rotate your tires: Your rear tires and your front tires undergo different stresses as you drive, brake, and turn. Over time, the differing weight distribution will cause deepening wear that can only be interrupted by moving all of your tires to new positions on your vehicle. Without rotation, all of your tires will wear out more quickly.
- Have your wheels aligned: As with tire rotation, wheels that are not properly aligned can cause uneven tire wear. Perhaps even more importantly, misaligned wheels can cause your car or truck to pull to one side or cause vibration.
If you’ve driven for any length of time on a tire that won’t stay inflated or that has visible damage, such as a puncture or bulge, it’s likely that there may be more damage than you can see. The only way to determine if a tire is beyond repair is to have it taken off the wheel and inspected inside and out.
Most guidelines suggest that small punctures (less than a quarter of an inch in diameter) can be repaired, unless the problem is with the tire shoulder or sidewall. We recommend bringing your car or truck to your nearest Driver’s Edge location to have our tire repair technicians inspect the tire in question. We’ll let you know if the tire should be replaced to ensure that you’re driving on a safe tire.
You certainly can replace just two of your tires at one time, but the best option for performance and safety is to replace all four tires. Ideally, tires that are all the same size, age, and brand, and that have the same tread pattern will give you better handling and a quieter ride.
If your budget allows for the replacement of just two tires right now, try to replace the other two as soon as you can. In the meantime, Driver’s Edge always offers great tire deals, money-saving coupons, and rebates from manufacturers of the top tire brands.
The answer depends upon the extent of the problem that caused the tire to go flat. If you have a puncture that’s a quarter-inch or less in diameter, you may be able to use a patch-and-plug combination. In any case, the goal is to completely fill the damage to make sure you have an airtight seal on the inner liner.
If you have a flat, Driver’s Edge offers free flat tire repair for most vehicles for tires that can be safely repaired.
For the best performance and maximum life, your wheel/tire assembly should spin smoothly, even at higher speeds. When tires are out of balance, wear happens faster and more unevenly. All Driver’s Edge locations offer expert tire balancing service.
One reason there are so many types of tires on the market is that they’re all designed to have different traction and handling. If you mix tire types, you could end up with problems ranging from a car that won’t hold the road well to dangerous results if you have to brake hard. We always recommend that when you replace a tire, it should be an identical match to your other tires. The technicians at your local Driver’s Edge tire shop can help you choose the new tires that are right for your vehicle.
This is one of the easiest ways to take good care of your tires, and one of the most important for ensuring good handling and safety. Take a few minutes each month to check your tires (don’t forget the spare!) to ensure you have proper inflation. It’s also smart to check your pressure before setting out on a long road trip.
Try to check when the tires are cold or when your vehicle has been sitting idle for at least three hours. You’ll find the recommended pressure for your tires on a sticker inside your driver’s side door.
A careful visual inspection, tread measurement, and your own assessment of how your car or truck is handling should help you determine if it’s time for you to buy new tires:
- Inspect your tires for any type of damage or objects embedded in the tread. Some damage, such as small punctures, may be able to be repaired. Others, such as sidewall damage, may not.
- Measure your tread depth with a penny. Insert it with Lincoln’s head down—if the top of Lincoln’s head is exposed, you don’t have enough tread to ensure the tire is safe to drive on and the tire needs to be replaced.
- Think about how your vehicle handles. If you’ve noticed excessive vibration (more than just normal vibration caused by the road) or a constant vibration that gets worse as you increase your speed, it may be time to replace your tires.
Having tires in good condition is important to your safety. If you need new tires or wonder if your tires can be repaired, don’t wait to book an appointment at your nearest Driver’s Edge location.
