Buying tires in Calgary is quite a big deal — feel free to consult with us at Precision Alignment & Brake about proper size, type and grade for your local Calgary driving needs. We can help you balance load requirements, fuel economy, performance, durability and cost. If you provide us with your tire size (located on the side of your tires [ex: 205/50R17]) we will provide 3 different estimates for your particular tire size, with a varied price range. Our prices include dismount, mount, balance and installation on the vehicle.
When buying new tires, it’s best to replace both tires on the same axle in order to keep the rolling diameter as close as possible. If you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, you should replace all four tires at the same time because you can run into problems if the tires have different rolling diameters due to wear or different type of tire.
Four-wheel-drive vehicles should have all tires very close to the same rolling diameter to avoid binding and wheel hop between the front and rear axles. Also, tire manufacturers recommend that if you are buying just two new tires that they be installed on the rear for safer slippery road traction – regardless of which wheels drive the vehicle. Give us a call before you make your next tire purchase, we’re here to help.
