How Much is Enough for College Station Auto Owners? Tire Tread Depth

How Much is Enough for College Station Auto Owners? Tire Tread Depth Most College Station drivers know that tires wear out and that the wear has to do with tread depth. Most of us have heard that “bald” tires are dangerous, but most of us picture a tire with no tread at all when we think of a bald tire.

When Do My Shocks Need to be Replaced?

When Do My Shocks Need to be Replaced? A good suspension system gives a vehicle a smooth, even ride while providing Bryan College Station car owners with good handling and control. But like any system on your car or SUV, critical parts of the suspension system can wear out, leading to a lower ride quality and safety concerns. So it’s a good idea for Bryan College Station motorists to remember an inspection of their suspension system in their schedule of a vital preventive maintenance. Springs do most of the work of the suspension system. The most common types of springs are coil and leaf, but air springs and torsion bars are becoming more common. The body of the vehicle is “suspended” by the springs. If springs were the only working component in your suspension system, however, you’d spend your travel time bouncing up and down like a bobblehead. That’s where your shocks come in. They keep the rebound, or bounciness, of the springs under control. Shocks a ... read more

Shake It Up in Bryan College Station!: Why Wheel Balancing

Shake It Up in Bryan College Station!: Why Wheel Balancing Our vehicles are not massage chairs. While we may enjoy a good vibration in an overstuffed recliner, us Bryan College Station auto owners generally want as smooth a ride as possible in our vehicles. One way to achieve this is to keep a vehicle’s wheels in balance. When a tire is mounted onto a wheel, it is usually out of balance. This means that as the wheel spins, there is a slight wobble to the path of the tire. For best handling performance and safety on the road, Bryan College Station auto owners want to minimize this wobble as much as possible. So we balance our tires. To balance a tire, your honest and friendly Superior Auto Service service professional spins it on a machine or drum to determine where it is off-balance.

High-quality tires ... read more
