Visit Our Tire Change Service Center

Some Valrico drivers may find it difficult to gauge when it’s time to visit our tire change service center for a set of new tires. We have new tires for every price range, from cheap new tires to more expensive tires. It’s important to choose the right tire size for your vehicle as an ill-fitting tire can cause damage to your vehicle as well as being a safety hazard to you.  Watch out for signs that your vehicle is due for new tires. Some warning signs include:

  • Your Tires’ Treads Are Looking Shallow: If you notice that your tires have a low tread depth, then it may be time to take your vehicle in for new tires.
  • Tread Wear Indicator Bar: If you see flat rubber bars that align perpendicular to the treads, then this is a good indication that you need to schedule a tire replacement or tire repair appointment.
  • Sidewall Cracks: Be on the lookout for cracked sidewalls – this is a definite indicator that something’s wrong.
  • Blistering and Bulges: If you notice blisters or bulges building up on the surface of your tires, you need to bring your vehicle in for tire change service ASAP.
  • Excessive Vibrations: Lastly, any excessive vibrations beyond what you normally experience while on the streets of Brandon can indicate a tire problem – or something more severe. It’s best to get it checked out and let our car service technicians give you a tire rotation, vehicle alignment, or a set of new tires.

Understanding Tire Size & Tire Numbers

Tire size is indicated by the set of numbers printed on your tires. Tires meant for a passenger vehicle will begin with a P. The first three numbers following the P indicate the width of the tire in millimeters. The next two numbers are the aspect ratio of the tire. If an uppercase R follows the aspect ratio, that means the layers run radially across the tire. The two numbers after the R reflect the wheel diameter, and the last three numbers and letters indicate load index and speed rating. If you find DOT on the sidewall of your new tires, that means the new tires comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Your tire size and tire identification number will differ depending on what type of vehicle you own. Use our “Find New Tires” feature to quickly find out what kind of tires will fit your vehicle properly, and then schedule an appointment with your Plant City service center to have your new tires installed.
