Tires and Alignments
Tires, Tire Pressure Monitoring, Tire Balancing, and Alignments in Plano, TX
European cars, especially high-performance and exotics, need special attention when it comes to tires. Even the base models of most of the cars we work on are pretty fast. When you have the ability to drive fast, your tires need to be up to the challenge.
At EurAuto, we take tires seriously. Sure, we can install the same tires that your car came with originally when it comes time for new tires. In most cases, we do just that. But we always work with our clients to make sure they get the RIGHT tire:
- Right for their driving style
- Right for their budget
- Right for the driving conditions (snow, heat, highway, around town)
- Right for the car
There are nearly endless options available when it comes to tires. At EurAuto, we’re here to help you through the tire buying maze and make getting new tires an easy, pleasurable experience.
At highway speeds your tires are turning REALLY fast. No matter the brand or quality of tire, it’s going to take a little weight in the exact, precise spot to keep vibrations under check.
We’ve invested in the best tire balancing equipment by Hunter Engineering to make sure your luxury vehicle has a luxury ride. We can balance tires on wheels up to 26” in diameter.
If you’re feeling some vibration while driving at highway speeds, you likely have a tire out of balance. If this gets bad enough it can actually cause damage (cupping) to your tires. Schedule an appointment to have your tires balanced and get back that smooth ride you deserve.
Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPMS)
It seems like one of the most often ignored dash lights is the tire pressure monitoring light. But why? When your TPMS system is working properly it can save you from the very inconvenient and dangerous situation of being stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire.
TPMS is a relatively simple system and at EurAuto we have the knowledge and programming equipment to get that pesky light turned off and this valuable warning system working correctly again.
When it comes to European cars and alignments, an alignment isn’t just an alignment. Euro cars are high-tech. They have sensors all over, including the suspension and steering. An alignment done wrong can cause your dash to light up like a Christmas tree with malfunction indicator lamps.
For many Euro cars, special tools beyond the basics that come with the alignment machine are needed. For example, to properly align a Mercedes you must have a Romess Inclinometer. This tool precisely measures the ride height to make sure the vehicle is in the exact position it needs to be in for caster, camber, and toe adjustments to be made. We have this tool.
