  • Batteries

    Batteries

    Your battery supplies the electrical service to start your car when it is not running. It also serves as a reserve capacitor to protect sensitive electronics on your car from voltage spikes originating from the alternator. A bad battery will usually cause your car not to start, but in extreme failures, it can cause your car to die on the road. Extreme weather conditions such as heat or freezing cold temperatures can cause a weak battery to fail. Have your battery tested to check its performance. If the results indicate your battery is in need of replacement, Ride-Wright Tire, Inc. can quickly provide a suitable replacement.

  • Belts & Hoses

    Belts & Hoses

    Your vehicle’s belts and hoses play a critical role in the proper operation of your cooling system, air conditioning system, charging system and more. Old hoses can become cracked and dry rotted, causing them to squeal or break. Radiator and heater hoses will deteriorate with age and can get hard and crack or become soft and porous leading to system leakage and severe engine problems like overheating. A broken belt can lead to loss of power steering, failure to charge, or engine overheating, leaving you stranded on the road. It's important to have these components checked at least annually and replaced when needed. The typical life span of a belt or hose is seldom over 5 years. Your friends at Ride-Wright Tire, Inc. can inspect your belts and hoses and tell you if they are in need of replacement.

  • Brake Repair

    Brake Repair

    Your brake system transmits the force you apply to the brake pedal, down hydraulic lines to the pistons in the brake calipers and wheel cylinders at your wheels. This force creates friction between the brake pads or shoes and the brake rotors or drums. This friction creates the stopping force needed to quickly and safely stop your car. If you're experiencing brake symptoms such as a squealing or grinding noise, a pulsating brake pedal, an abnormal amount of brake pedal travel, or a red brake light indicator, it is time to have your brakes checked as soon as possible. At Ride-Wright Tire, Inc., we can quickly and professionally solve your problem and get you back on the road safely.

  • Oil Changes

    Oil Changes

    Your oil removes heat from the engine and lubricates its moving parts. Changing your vehicle’s oil routinely is one of the most important things you can do to promote long term vehicle performance. As you drive, the oil pump circulates oil into your oil filter and throughout your engine. The oil filter cleans dirt and deposits out of the oil, keeping your engine clean and protected. As time passes, the oil filter will begin to get clogged with this debris and will no longer be able to keep the oil clean for the engine. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil between 3,000 and 5,000 miles to insure long life and maximum performance. At Ride-Wright Tire, Inc., we understand the importance of an oil change.

  • Tire Balancing

    Tire Balancing

    When your car rolls down the road, it is imperative that your tires be in proper balance. Out of balance tires will wear quicker and possibly cause symptoms such as vibration or a shaking sensation in the seat or steering wheel. These symptoms may become more or less obvious as the speed of the vehicle changes. As the tires wear, it is normal for the tires to become out of balance. It is recommended that tires be balanced every 15,000 miles to ensure maximum tire life and smooth, quiet operation.

  • Tire Installation

    Tire Installation

    Tires are no longer just rubber and oil. Instead, they are made up of several layers of materials, each playing its own role in how the tire functions. Today's tires last longer and are less prone to dangerous blowouts than older tires. They are also better at maintaining contact with the road and can even help a car's performance. Choosing the right tires has drastically changed over the years. As an example a vehicle towing heavy weight will need a high load rating tire. If a vehicle is driven in an area with heavy rain or snow, you might prefer the purchase tires with a better traction rating, the life expectancy of a tire depends on road conditions, driving habits, usage and the type of tire. Your tires need to be changed at the very least every 6 years. The rubber in the tires dries out over time. This can lead to cracking, greater stress on the tire's infrastructure and catastrophic failure. A great drive starts with properly installed tires! At Ride-Wright Tire, Inc. we have professionally trained staff on hand to provide the best tires and tire installation in the industry.

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

    Your tire pressure monitoring system, often referred to as TPMS, is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure in your tires. This system uses real time tire pressure information to alert you if there is a tire pressure problem. If your tire pressure drops to an unsafe level, it will alert you via a light or warning message. Many systems will also tell you which tire is low. Low tire pressure is not only a safety issue, but it will also drastically shorten the life of a tire. Tire pressure sensors are powered by a non serviceable battery and will eventually fail due to low battery voltage. The average lifespan of a tire pressure sensor is 7 to 9 years. It's also recommended that sensors be replaced or properly serviced when new tires are installed. At Ride-Wright Tire, Inc. we have the tools, equipment, training and knowledge to properly service or diagnose your Tire Pressure Monitoring System. We would be happy to handle all of your tire service needs today.
