Tire Safety

Our automotive technicians always have your safety in mind. We're legally responsible to ensure the right tire is on your car. This includes the tire having proper clearance. That's where aspect ratios come in. Aspect ratio is the relationship of the height and width of a tire, with the air chamber inside determining its load carrying capacity. Thorough understanding is critical because substitutions of tires can be dangerous.
