Helping You Find the Right Tires in Lancaster, PA

Tires are an often overlooked but significant part of your vehicle. Your tires provide essential functionality to your vehicle. These important tasks include:

  • Supporting the weight of your vehicle and its load

  • Transferring traction and braking forces to the road surface

  • Ensuring a smooth ride by absorbing any road shocks

  • Changing and maintaining the direction of travel

While tires all look like a big, black rubber band from the outside, not all tires are equally made. In fact, many car manufacturers design their vehicles to function best with a specific set of tires.

Tire Mounting and Balancing

There's a reason your vehicle's manual typically lists tire balancing as a recommended service. Properly balanced tires are essential for assuring excellent performance from your car and durability from your tires. Professionally mounted and balanced tires from our team at Dutch Valley Auto will help provide a smooth ride while ensuring even tire wear.

So, How Do You Know When to Get Tire Balancing Done?

It's best to get your tires balanced if you begin feeling vibrations from the steering wheel, the floorboard, or the car seat. It also helps to have them balanced anytime you have them rotated, which generally happens every 5,000 miles. There may be other reasons to get your tires balanced beyond noticeable vibrations—those include the following:

  • One a year if you drive on rough roads, otherwise every two years
  • If you've recently repaired a flat
  • If you've purchased any new tires
  • If a balance weight falls off the rim
  • You start seeing uneven tire wear

How are Tires Rebalanced? Here's Our Process:

Our tire shop uses the latest in state-of-the-art technology at our Lancaster, PA facility. We follow these three steps every time:

  • Mounting - Your tire gets mounted on a wheel and attached to our tire balancing machine: A Hunter Tire Mounter (TC3700). Which can balance up to 50" Tires and 10"-28" rims.
  • Spinning - We take vibration measurements while spinning your tire on our Hunter Tire Balancer (GSP9700) with Road Force technology. This machine allows us to put actual load condition on the tire while balancing 10"-30" rims. This process not only lets our certified technicians know if weight is spread evenly on the wheel, but if necessary, how much additional weight to add and where. Our is Hunter Alignment Machine (WAH30) with steering wheel position sensor adjustment is used to correct the angles of your tires so that they make contact with the road correctly and in the same direction.
  • Rebalance - If our techs find an imbalance, they may rebalance and adjust the weights.
