Tire Recapping & Wheel Alignment: How It Helps Drivers, Brooklyn, New York

No matter what your driving habits may be, all tires wear down with use. However, when this happens, it’s not always necessary to replace the entire set. Through the process of tire recapping—followed by a wheel alignment—a trusted auto repair team can help you save money by preserving a fraction of your current tires. At your next tuneup, ask about tire recapping and wheel alignment to find out if your vehicle will benefit from the adjustment.

wheel alignmentYour tires grip the road with their tread—the pattern of grooves on the surface of the rubber. After driving on them for some time, the raised portions of the tread will begin to wear down. When it does, people often choose to replace their tires.

When you opt for tire recapping, a trained technician will install new tread on top of your old, worn-down tires. This service is often recommended when substantial portions of your tires are still in good condition. Tire recapping helps to preserve as much of the original material as possible while adding fresh tread in thinned-out areas.

This restorative process can help you save money by avoiding the need to install brand-new tires. It’s also better for the environment, since recapping uses significantly less material and releases fewer byproducts than the tire manufacturing process.

That said, you need to schedule wheel alignment service after having your tires recapped. This will ensure your vehicle adjusts to the new tread. Without a wheel alignment, your tires may wear down unevenly, resulting in poor vehicle performance and rough maneuvering. To learn more, speak to a qualified auto specialist in your area.
