When shopping for tires, it's easy to get confused. With a constant barrage of tire coupons, social media posts and ads coming at you every day, the choices can become overwhelming. While it's normal to be concerned about the immediate needs of finding the best prices for tires, it's also a very good idea to consider the long-term safety and cost of properly maintaining your vehicle.
There's a reason the manufacturer chose the original tires that came with your vehicle. Other replacement tires may not be the right fit. This can result in a less comfortable ride but, more importantly, lower fuel efficiency and more frequent tire rotation and replacement. Your original tires are designed to make the most of your vehicle's performance, saving you time and money.
The factory-trained service technicians at your local Quick Lane service center are ready to help you find the best tires for your specific model at the best price possible. In fact, many Quick Lane service centers offer significant tire deals on original brands, including Michelin®, Goodyear and Continental. They also offer service coupons for tire rotation, balancing and installation.
Factory-trained tire installation
Are you familiar with the ever-changing world of tire technology? Most of us aren't. Thankfully, every Quick Lane employs experienced, factory-trained technicians who are in-the-know when it comes to advances in tire technology.
Every year, forums across the web are inundated with tire installation nightmares. The tales vary from balancing errors to mounting mistakes, such as a technician's failure to recognize tire pressure monitoring systems, run-flats and other special technologies standard in most newer vehicles. These types of oversights can cause your monitoring system to malfunction leaving you in an oftentimes bad situation.
Quick Lane service technicians are factory-trained on vehicle monitoring systems too. This means as the technology advances, so does their training. This training greatly reduces, if not eliminates, the chances of the improper installation of your vehicle's tires.
Full-service maintenance and repair
With vehicles reaching the 30,000 to 40,000 plus mileage range, tires are not the only parts on your car, truck or SUV that may need attention. While most vehicles follow a regular maintenance schedule, some issues may occur before the recommended date or mileage range has been reached.
While servicing your tires, your Quick Lane service technician is factory-trained to recognize and point out these potential maintenance issues to you. He or she can then recommend any needed repairs at the time of service, saving you additional trips to the shop. These services can vary from a simple tune-up or oil change to more extensive engine or transmission repairs.
With over 270 million vehicles on the road today, it has never been more important to ensure your technician is familiar with your vehicle's maintenance needs, and Quick Lane service center technicians are experts in vehicles of all makes and models. Other benefits of Quick Lane installation include:
- Access to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts
- Full-service maintenance and repair facility
- Parts and labor warranties
- Clean, comfortable waiting areas
- Shuttle service to and from your home
- Friendly and knowledgeable staff
While Wi-Fi, shuttle service and clean, comfortable service areas are certainly a bonus, there are other benefits that should get you excited about creating a relationship with your local Quick Lane service center.
