Our Services

Along with expertise honed over decades, we use the right technology to scan and analyze your car so that accurate repairs can be done.

 

At The Tire Guys, we want you to stay safe while out on the road. Your tires are very important in keeping your vehicle running smoothly. Not only will good tire safety help protect you and your passengers while on the road, but it can improve your gas mileage and provide optimal performance. You can rely on our tire diagnostics and repairs in Barrie irrespective of the make and model of your vehicle.


While the computer system of your car does provide an initial indication if something is amiss, the eye of an experienced mechanic is always better. 

Tire Rotations

Tire rotation ensures that all the tires wear evenly, as front tires wear much more quickly than rear tires. Generally, the professional recommendation on tire rotation is for one service every 8,000 km. These help you save money and sustain the life of your tires.

Tire Balancing

Though tire balancing and wheel alignment seem indistinguishable, they are not quite the same thing. Tire balancing corrects weight imbalances within the tire and the wheel, as small weights are inserted into the wheel’s barrel. We can help you check if your tires need balancing.

Tire Pressure Gauges

Optimal tire inflation helps to ensure efficient performance, fuel economy and safety. In situations of major temperature changes, it is ideal to have your tires set to the recommendations of your vehicle manufacturer that are generally provided on your owner’s manual, the inside of the driver’s side door, glove compartment, or fuel hatch. We suggest checking tire inflation pressure about once a month as incorrect tire pressure can lead to flat tires, increase the tire’s stiffness, or cause other damages.

The Best Way to Do a Tire Safety Check

It is important to inspect your tires regularly or have a professional do it for you. Here are some factors to consider regarding the health of your tire:

6

  • Tire tread depth

  • Tire pressure

  • The age of the tire

  • Signs of over-inflation like bumps or bulges

  • Check if your driving style aligns with the design of your tire

  • If there is any cracking between the tread blocks and on the sidewalls

  • Tread separation: if a crack is wide enough to fit the corner of a credit card in, the tire needs to be replaced as soon as possible

Tire Alignments

For your vehicle to operate safely and efficiently, tire alignments adjust its suspension pieces to bring the tires and wheels into specific angles.


The proper alignment process takes about an hour. Though most experts recommend alignments once or twice a year, it depends on your driving conditions - for instance, driving over potholes regularly requires more frequent alignment checks.


We recommend tire alignments if:

7

  • There is uneven tire wear across a wheel

  • The steering wheel is off centre

  • The wheel pulls right or left while driving

  • The steering wheel seems to shake while driving

Tire Replacement

Experts will always suggest frequent tire replacements. Though it may only be practical to do one or two at a time. For your tire replacements, we ensure the new tires are the same size, model, and tread pattern as the rest, so that there is uniformity in the gradual wear and tear of the tires.
