June is Tire Safety Awareness Month, and we here at Chicagoland Jiffy Lube ® know that tire maintenance is an important component to keeping both you and your vehicle safe out on the road. We are proud to offer a range of tire services at participating locations in order to help you keep your tires free from damage or defects. Curious to learn what kind of tire services we offer? Keep reading to find out.
Tire Replacement & Installation
Chicagoland Jiffy Lube® is able to professionally install and balance new tires that meet or exceed your manufacturer’s specification. How often you should change your tires depends on your driving habits, driving conditions, and even the quality of tires that you purchase. It is relatively easy for us to tell when you need new tires: if there is any cracking between the tread, or if your tread depth is less than 2/32”, it is time to invest in a new set.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System Service
Is your tire pressure monitoring system, or TPMS, light on? Your neighborhood Multicare location can fix this issue by servicing the TPMS system, keeping your light from coming on when your tire pressure is within normal range.
Have a flat tire? Stop by to see if it is repairable before you spend money on a replacement. If the tire is repairable, your Chicagoland Jiffy Lube® can remove the tire, clean the puncture, prep the area around the puncture and install a plug or patch from the inside, completely sealing the tire to industry standards. After the repair has set, we will reinstall and inflate the tire to your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.
To ensure that your tires provide a comfortable ride and last as long as they are supposed to, it is important to rotate them on a regular basis. Tires wear differently depending on their position on the vehicle, your driving style and the condition of your suspension. Regularly rotating your tires helps them wear more evenly. We can even do this during your Signature Service ® Oil Change, which helps save you time on vehicle maintenance tasks.
As tires wear, they can end up out of balance. This can make them vibrate or shake when you are driving your vehicle. Regular wheel balancing helps to ensure that your ride is smooth, as well as keep your tires from wearing out prematurely.
Proper wheel alignment ensures that your vehicle drives straight, but bumps and potholes can knock your alignment out of place. Even the smallest change can make your vehicle want to pull to one side while you are driving. It can also lead to excessive tire wear. Our alignment services measures and adjusts three separate angle points within your driving system, ensuring that your tires are as straight as possible.
Proper Tire Care Saves Money
Taking care of your tires doesn’t just keep you from having to deal with a flat tire, it also saves you money. Properly maintained tires can save you up to 11 cents for every gallon of fuel you burn, and extend your tire life by 4,700 miles.
Don’t let poorly maintained tires affect your safety or your wallet. Stop by your participating neighborhood Chicagoland Jiffy Lube ® today for a free tire inspection, and make sure your tires are ready for anything the road can throw at them.
