If you don’t regularly inspect and service your tires, you may experience a blowout, a flat, or worse. Meineke has the right tires for your vehicle and offers services you need to keep your tires in good working order. Our certified technicians will inspect your tires, perform a tire repair, or replace them entirely.
It’s easy to tell when your car isn’t in alignment. Drifting from side to side, abnormally-worn tires, or a tilted steering wheel while driving straight are symptoms of a vehicle in need of alignment services! Since a tire alignment actually fixes the vehicle suspension, not the tires, having a specialist who can properly adjust your suspension system is important.
Rotating your tires helps ensure tires wear evenly. It’s an important and often-overlooked part of auto maintenance that involves adjusting the position of tires around the car. We recommend that you rotate tires every 6,000-8,000 miles, ensuring the best tires are on the rear.
Get peace of mind with your tire purchase. Meineke’s Tire Protection program protects your tire investment with a 3 year replacement plan. Be sure to ask your local center if they participate in the Tire Protection Program.

Alignment is the process of adjusting the suspension of your vehicle; while it’s sometimes called a tire or wheel alignment, it’s actually an alignment of the system that connects those wheels to the rest of the car. This is an important preventative maintenance step, and the cost can vary depending on the vehicle you’re driving. Reach out to Meineke to schedule an appointment and get a specific quote for your vehicle.
In order to prevent uneven wear and tear, your tires and wheels should periodically be switched from one position to another—a process that’s referred to as tire rotation. This is an important step in the preventative maintenance process, and it’s generally recommended that you have it done at least twice a year. Pricing can vary depending on your vehicle; make an appointment with Meineke and get a specific quote today.
Tire rotation is an important step in the preventive maintenance process, and it’s something we recommend having done roughly two to three times a year. This figure can vary just depending on how much you drive the vehicle. A good rule of thumb is to always have a tire rotation performed when you get the oil and filters changed.
The tire rotation process consists of Meineke’s technicians moving the tires and wheels from one position to another, in order to ensure even wear. During this process, we will also inspect your tires for any signs of damage, and let you know of any issues we see.
Actually, the opposite is true; if your suspension isn’t in proper alignment, it can cause the tires to see some uneven wear. As such, it’s generally recommended that you take your car in for an alignment before investing in new tires.
Your tire size is indicated by a series of letters and numbers printed across the sidewall. These letters and numbers signify the tire’s class; the width of the tire from one sidewall, measured in millimeters; the height of the sidewall, listed as a percentage of the section width; the maximum speed for which your tires are approved, measured in mph; radial construction; wheel diameter, in inches; and load carrying capacity.
Tire sizes actually provide you with a wealth of information—including the maximum speed at which your tires are safe; the maximum carrying capacity of those tires; and the size of your tires, including height and width. A Meineke service technician can tell you more about the specific sizing of your tires. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
