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 antilock 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 Empire Automotive, 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.

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. Empire Automotive has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 772-370-8564 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Empire Automotive, 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 Empire Automotive to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.

  • -Diana C.

    John is honest & affordable. I don't take my SUV anywhere else but to him since I found him.


  • -Alisa C.

    I had my car serviced here last week. The axle on my car broke, and I have to say this was the best experience ever! John is an honest mechanic. As a woman, you get nervous thinking that you'll be taken advantage of. That was not the case at Empire Automotive. John figured out my problem quickly and had my car ready in a day! His prices beat anyone in labor, and he didn't try to sell me services I didn't need. If you are looking for a reliable, honest and reasonably priced mechanic, look no further. Thank you John!

    John was wonderful and fair! He kept within the time frame promised which is important to me with two small kids. I would highly recommend him to everyone!


  • -Keith H.

    John is a great, honest mechanic. He won't lie to you and try to get you to do a bunch of repairs you don't need at outrageous prices. I took my car to a few places before a family member recommended Empire. When I took it to John, he told me exactly what the one problem was, and his price to fix it was about half of what others were quoting. I will always bring my car to him from now on, from the smallest thing like an oil change, to whatever other problems may come. Very highly recommend Empire. You won't be dissatisfied.
