All About Tire Installation

Installation of tires entails more than just exchanging one set of tires for another. It also entails ensuring that the tires are correctly balanced and placed on the wheels. In some circumstances, changing tires may also include a wheel alignment.

Tire Installation Process at Ward Tires

Installing brand-new Tires with customized alloys on your cars gives you great satisfaction. If you plan to swap out an old set of tires for something new, or are looking for a place to purchase a new set of tires, you’ve found the right place.

We at Ward Tires offer you the best tire installation services in Alberta. We have a great team available, who works in a dedicated manner to get your car tires installed. Here’s how we get it done:

Step 1. Inspecting and Removing the Existing Tires

When your car first enters our shop bays we deeply inspect your car’s conditions and check the old tires of the vehicle. We never disappoint our customers, whether small cars or heavy trucks. To perform a deep inspection, the car will be mounted by the mechanic, who will raise the wheels off the ground.

Step  2. Installing the New Tires

After that, the operation deflates the tires after the wheels and tires have been removed from the car. To release the air, the technician will unscrew the valve stem core. The tires may be removed from the wheels once they have completely deflated. Typically, the mechanic removes the Tire from the wheel rim using a specialized tool.

During this stage, the mechanic will probably check the wheels and lug nuts to make sure there are no signs of damage. It’s crucial to carefully examine the rim to ensure there are no sharp edges or crevices that might nick or puncture the brand-new tires. Your best course of action may be replacing the rim with a new wheel if it is worn out or corroded.

As the old tires with rims are removed, the professional technician replaces them with new ones on the wheels.

Step 3. Balancing the Tires

The expense of balancing the tires on the wheels is often included in the tire change price. Tire balancing is crucial because it helps prevent tire wear and enables an automobile to grasp the road properly.

The imbalance in each wheel will be measured by a technician using a tire balancer. The mechanic will add or modify tire weights while operating the machine to aid the tire’s balance.

Step 4. Installing the Wheels

The next step is to reinstall the wheels and tires on the car once the tires have been balanced. The mechanic will tighten the lug nuts with a wrench.

They won’t tighten the lug nuts while the car is still raised on the lift. Instead, they will lower the vehicle until the wheels are barely off the ground. The nuts will be properly adjusted using a torque wrench once the car has been lowered.

Step 5. Aligning the Wheels

At last, when the wheels are installed properly onto your vehicle, it’s time to give them proper alignment with the help of a wheel alignment machine. This will ensure that your new tires do not experience unexpected tire wear due to improper alignment.

Major Benefits of Installing New Tires on Your Cars

The cost of new tires way far less than that of its benefits, and the installation of New tires promotes the following benefits:

Improved Safety

A fresh pair of tires will give the car extra safety for 100,000  to 160,000 km of its lifespan (depending on the tire tread-wear rating). Additionally, fresh tires improve your car’s stopping, moving, and turning capabilities.

Enhanced Performance

Your tires’ quality will determine how far you have to stop your automobile, as well as how quickly you can make a turn. They decide how much power your car can put down and whether you can brake quickly enough to keep it under control. Your new tires amplify the ability of your vehicle to do all of these things.

Better Gas Mileage

Your gas mileage may be significantly impacted by the state of your tires. Your gas mileage will suffer if you have a set of worn-out tires with an uneven tread pattern since your automobile will have to work more to transmit power to the ground.

Improved Traction

The compound and tread life of your tires significantly impact how well they perform in various road and weather situations (such as snow, rain, dirt, and mud).
