We are so excited for summer to start a.k.a road trip season!! We’re so
looking forward to warm weather and endless sunny days! To make the most of our fun adventures, we make sure our vehicles are inspected and ready for the road. This is an important step for us because cold conditions create car issues. Winters in Ontario are pretty brutal and lonnnng, so we make sure our cars are in top shape before heading out on a long road trip. We definitely don’t want to spend vacation time on the road fixing “surprises” that could’ve been prevented. Doing preventative maintenance is key to enjoy any trip and for being safe on the road.

So what do we lookout for when doing an inspection? Here are a few steps we’ll be taking to make sure your vehicle is good to go!
Tire Alignment and Suspension
Winter conditions such as the cold arctic winds we had this winter affect the suspensions and the alignment of tires by causing irregular tread wear. If you notice that your car is pulling more on one side when driving, this means we need to realign your tires.
Checking the air pressure of your tires and adjusting accordingly is important for fuel efficiency and longevity. We’ll also keep an eye out for signs of damage such as cracks, cut and sidewall damage that are often caused by potholes. This is another important step closer to enjoying summer vacation while being safe on the road!
If you have winter or snow tires on, it’s time to switch them up with all-season tires. Keeping them on will use up the tread very quickly and can’t be reused for next winter. We’ll replace them with all-season tires that provide better grip on wet roads which is essential for spring, summer and fall.
Did you know we offer a variety of tire brands and services? We offer services such as tire installation to tire balancing and rotations. Call us today to make an appointment with us at (519) 578-4533. We have a great team of professionals that follow manufacture specific recommendations for speed rating and tire size for your safety on the road.
