TIRES

Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.



We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.


Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Arizona Auto & Radiator Repair, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.

Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Arizona Auto & Radiator Repair.

Tire Rotation
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

Tire Inspection
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Arizona Auto & Radiator Repair has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 520-459-2216 if you have questions, or schedule an appointment so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Arizona Auto & Radiator Repair, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Arizona Auto & Radiator Repair to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

What People Say About Us


  • -Susanne, Sierra Vista AZ

    AZ Auto and Radiator performed a thorough check of my vehicle and found some issues that I suspected were present, but were never diagnosed by another local auto business. The owner took the time to show me (on the vehicle) what he recommended and why. Professional, friendly service, and they didn't pressure me to have everything fixed immediately. Highly recommended!


  • -Guy, Huachuca City AZ

    As usual, Danny and staff did an AWESOME job! Danny and AnnMarie are wonderful people and are as honest as the day is long. AZ Auto and Radiator have been doing the maintenance on all of my vehicles since 1997 or 98, and I will continue to take my vehicle maintenance needs to them. They do excellent work, and will tell you the truth about your vechicle maintenance needs; without all the extra stuff that other auto shops will try to sell you. Take your vehicle to Danny and crew for you next vehicle maintenance needs--You Won't Be Sorry!


  • -Mike, Tombstone AZ

    Danny and the crew at Arizona Auto are tops for reliable workmanship and customer service.


  • -Whitney, Sierra Vista AZ

    Just had my oil change and a much-needed window repair before monsoon season hits. I have an older vehicle and I like that Danny and AnnMarie take a wholistic approach at caring for my car--they try to watch for possible issues and let me know what might be coming up. They are also mindful about determining the cause behind any needed repairs (if it is not something attributed to basic wear over time) so that we don't end up repairing the same issue over and over.


  • -Mark, Elgin AZ

    Not only can we trust that our truck is getting excellent, and current, service with Arizona Auto; each time we go, there is some thoughtful improvement to the waiting area. We couldn't be happier with them!


  • -Doug, Benson AZ

    Seventeen years later we still depend on our extended family at Arizona Auto to fix our problems.


  • -Carol, Bisbee AZ

    Got my vehicle in right on time and completed the work in a timely matter. Friendly and helpful staff. Repair was very reasonably priced. Plan to return when vehicles need service.


  • -Linda, Sierra Vista AZ

    I find the owners and staff trustworthy and ethical. My car is always ready when promised.


  • -Marianne, Sierra Vista AZ

    I trust the people who work at Arizona Auto and Radiator. A few years ago, they sold a car for us. They told us they expected to sell it for $4,000; we thought that would be a good price to get for the car. They sold it for $5,000 and gave us the extra $1,000. We would never have known that they sold it for a higher price and would have been happy to receive the $4,000 originally estimated. I don't think that level of honesty is common in many businesses.


  • -Edie, Sierra Vista AZ

    Major RAVE for Dustin and Danny at AZ Auto on Bartow. My 14 y/o vehicle had been ignored and abused for some time. Danny is a great diagnostician, Dustin worked with me on some of the maintenance issues it had. Nobody ever spoke down to me because I am a female (They did not know I was a Veteran Army mechanic). Nobody tried to oversell. My car drives like new. Very impressed.
