Your Tire Sales Specialists
Between the heavy hauls, adverse terrain, and hundreds of miles driven, your tires are put under a lot of stress on a daily basis. As a truck driver, you know this. You also know that regular tire care is of the essence when it comes to a reliable set of tires that will last. However, as with many other components, tires wear with age and use and will eventually require replacement. At Coast to Coast Fleet Services in Durham, North Carolina, we specialize in truck tire sales. Our technicians are experts when it comes to selecting a new set of tires for your truck, and we carry a diverse stock of high-quality tires on-site. In addition to our truck tire sales, we offer professional installation service for after your purchase. We can remove your current tires, mount your new set, and ensure a proper fit. We’ll also check the air pressure of each and adjust as needed. Tires significantly influence your truck’s performance, and we are committed to providing the best type for your vehicle and driving needs. Contact us today at 984-322-3019 to learn more about our selection, installation process, and anything in between.
When Do You Need New Tires?
Industry experts recommend changing your tires after five to six years of use, which lines up with the general recommendation of every 50,000 miles. Even if they may be in good shape, you should never exceed 10 years on the same set of tires. Over time, the quality of the tire diminishes, and its integrity is compromised. If your tires are exposed to extreme conditions more often, which is often the case with a truck, they may need to be changed earlier. The best way to know when they need replacement is to stay atop routine tire maintenance, where our truck tire sales team will regularly inspect and assess the condition of your tires. If quality is poor or damage is found, we will work with you to find a new set. Aside from the year and mileage intervals, there are other ways of telling when you may need new tires. For example, a low tread level (less than 2/32 of an inch) is a surefire sign. Low treads result in reduced grip, hydroplaning, low air pressure, which impacts fuel economy, steering, and braking, and they are more susceptible to punctures and blowouts. An additional sign includes visible damage to the tire, such as scrapes, bulges, dumps, and cracks.
Factors to Consider When Shopping New Tires
It can be a daunting challenge when choosing new tires for your truck, but our truck tire sales team makes it easy and convenient. The type of tire you select should fit your priorities and the way you use your truck, as tires can yield different outcomes when it comes to your truck’s performance and limitations. Do you want maximum off-road performance? Are you looking for tires that balance on- and off-road driving? Are you simply not sure? No need to fret—we are here to help in every way. We will walk you through our tire options, explain the pros and cons of each, and set you up with the type that best meets your needs. Some of the most common in our truck tire sales center include all-season, all-terrain, mud-terrain, high-performance, highway terrain, and mud and snow. Each tire’s tread block, channel, void, and shoulder are specially designed to perform in a specific environmental setting at maximum capacity. We’ll also confirm the tire size (width, height, rim size, and load range) and ensure the correct fit.
