Our primary business is alloy wheel repair and shaving - or truing - tires. While rim repair, although magical, may seem rather self explanatory, you might be asking "What does tire truing mean? Why do people need this service?"
Glad you asked.
After 20+ years of automotive industry experience - 15 years in the AWD sector - we identified a need for tire repair with the increasing number of all wheel drive (AWD) and four wheel drive (4WD) vehicles on the road today. When a tire on these vehicles is damaged due to hitting a curb, encountering a pothole hazard, or puncturing from an embedded nail, such situations typically require all four tires to be replaced to maintain the integrity of the AWD/4WD system. A new set of tires for these vehicles ranges between $500-$900. This means a basic set of tires has now become more expensive than a vehicle tune up.
The tire truing service we provide changes this scenario. Instead of buying all four tires, people can now purchase a single tire that we shave down to match the treadwear on the other three existing tires, preventing damage to the vehicle's AWD or 4WD system. This saves our customers hundreds of dollars in a single instance.
Saving people money doesn't stop there.
When a tire is damaged, it's not uncommon for the wheel itself to also be damaged. This may range anywhere from cosmetic curb rash to a bend or crack that prevents the wheel from holding air at all. We're able to repair the wheel as well, getting it as close to perfect manufacturer spec as absolutely possible. This saves our clients even more time, aggravation, and - most importantly - money, while giving them peace of mind that their rim was repaired right, the first time, by passionate, detail-oriented professionals.
We can also fix most other tire issues. A vehicle with chopped or feathered tires which cause a vibration or noise can now be trued instead of being replaced.
For all you race car drivers out there, we can also camber tires up to 3 degrees on our state-of-the-art machinery.
We welcome all performance vehicles as well. In the unlikely event we're unable to service the tires or wheels, we know good people who will.
