Honest Semi Truck Tread Experts
One of the difficult parts of choosing a truck service expert is knowing where their vested interest lies. Is it with their clients or somewhere else? When you decide to work with Tri County Truck and Trailer Repair Inc, you can be sure that we have your and your truck's best interest in mind.
One of the many benefits of working with our team is that you can be confident that we're providing you with the straight talk regarding your truck. Your treads are more important than they seem for the safety of your drivers and the efficiency of your vehicles. We'll let you know exactly what to do about your tires when you bring them to us.
Fully Assessing Your Tire Wear
Completing a thorough assessment of your semi-truck treads is the only way to ensure the correct decision is being made about your tire.
The assessment is an in-depth process that involves our team thoroughly assessing the damage on your tires—each one of them. This is a time-intensive process, but it will pay off because we'll be sure of the state of your tires.
When driving on the road, it's impossible for your tires not to run things over. We will spot all the nails and other things you may have run over, and we'll mark them so we can treat them with our sealant.
We'll come away from the assessment with a detailed understanding of the state of your tires, and we'll let you know what needs to be done to ensure your truck is performing optimally.
The Importance of Thorough Tread Depth Inspection
The tread on your tires does a whole lot more than just sit there looking nice. Your truck's tire treads keep you safe on the roads. The treads on your tire must be deep enough to grip the road properly. If your treads are not deep enough, you will lose traction, and you can experience extended braking times or worse.
Our tread depth inspection is the most thorough in the area. We will thoroughly measure the depth of every tread on every tire on your truck. There are markers on your tires that indicate with a 'wear bar' when the tire wear has reached its maximum and should be replaced.
Once you are fully aware of your tread's depth, we'll tell you the best next move for your tires.
To Cap or Not to Cap
A cap refers to adding a new strip of tire tread over your worn tires, and it is a very common method of ensuring that a tire's tread is back up to snuff.
We will bring to your attention the many factors that affect the decision to retread your tire or go with new tires.
The factors that play into the decision include what your truck is used for, the extent of the tire wear, which tires it is that need capping, etc. Consider us your one-stop for tire expertise.
Usually replacing your tires with new ones is the best option, but it's the more costly one as well. We'll let you know whether it's safe to cap your tires or if you should shell out for new ones. You have our word. You can expect honest tire service when you work with Tri County Truck and Trailer Repair Inc.
Benefits of Tire Retreading
The benefit of opting to retread or cap your tires instead of replacing them is that it is the fastest way to ensure you're driving on a safe tread depth. It is quicker to install a cap than to get new tires on, and when you have our truck maintenance professionals on the case, you can ensure that it will be a job well done.
Before handing the truck back to you, we'll complete a safety inspection on the capped tires so you can ride with confidence. Additionally, retreading your will greatly extend your tires' life. Professionally, we can't recommend capping your tires more than once, but each case is different. If you have tire retreading questions, please get in touch with us today.
Benefits of Virgin Tires
The benefit of getting new or 'virgin' tires—an unfortunate name for them, we know—is that all the issues you had with your old tires will be a thing of the past. Along with brand-new tires comes a brand-new life expectancy.
Another question to ask yourself is: how long have I had these old tire? If the answer is more than a few years, replacing them will afford you all the benefits of more modern tire technology. With that comes longer life expectancy, better rolling resistance, and resistance to rapid wear.
If you need new tires on your truck, please let us know right away.
