Signs That You Need to Get Your Brakes and Tires Repaired

Brakes are arguably the most important safety feature your vehicle has. If your vehicle can’t stop, it doesn’t belong on the road. Below, you’ll find a non-exhaustive list of some brake problem indicators.

  • Your brakes are making unusual noises.
  • Your dashboard’s brake warning light is on.
  • Your brakes are slow to stop the vehicle.
  • Your brakes cause the steering wheel to shake.

Once we diagnose the problem with your brakes, we’ll find the best, most cost-effective solution. Sometimes, your brakes only need a bit of maintenance. We may just need to bleed the brakes, adjust them, or recondition the caliper. Other times, it may require us to repair your brakes entirely.

A Simple Test to Check on Tire Tread Condition

Generally speaking, you should be able to tell when it’s time to replace your tires because your car will begin to drive differently: If you begin to notice your car vibrating or handles rougher than usual, consider using the following trick.

This method of testing tire condition is called the penny trick. Essentially, you want to slip a penny in the treads of your tires. If you can see any of Lincoln’s head, you need to replace your tires with new ones. If Lincoln’s head is obscured, your tires can still be used in their condition.

Your tires need to be replaced once every six years, regardless of how often you drive your vehicle. If your car suffered flats, you’re likely to get them replaced more often than that.

While Tropical Performance will replace your tires whenever necessary, we also do our best to ensure that you get the most use possible out of your tires. That means we’ll inspect, rotate, and balance your tires when necessary. We also offer suspension repairs.
