Take Time for Your Tires

When it comes to maintenance, we automatically think of oil changes, cabin air filter replacements, and so on. We don’t always think of our vehicle’s tires, but it is essential to take time for your tires. Your tires are your vehicle’s only contact point with the road, which means they are essential when looking to propel and stop your vehicle. Just think of how much we depend on those four patches of rubber!  It is essential to properly maintain your tires with proper tire maintenance, tire rotation, tire inflation, and wheel alignment. Without properly maintained tires, you are susceptible to slipping, sliding, blowouts, and other issues that could lead to dangerous accidents. Properly maintained tires also help you save money at the gas station and prolong your vehicle's longevity.  Even if your tires look correctly inflated and not flat, they could still need a little TLC -- in fact, your tire may look flat, but it could have lost up to 50% of its ... read more

Keep Your Vehicle Hydrated By Checking These Fluids

Keep Your Vehicle Hydrated By Checking These Fluids

Just like how you have to stay hydrated, your vehicle does too! We acknowledge that it can even be a challenge for us to remember to drink liquids. Fortunately, the team at South Park Tire & Auto is here to help you remember to keep your vehicle hydrated. Certain fluids in your car need to stay performing in tip-top shape, including your engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, and brake fluid.  The South Park Tire & Auto team strives to ensure your vehicle’s longevity, driveability, and performance. Here is why each fluid is important:  Engine oil: we all heard of an oil change, but you would be surprised to learn how many people actually forget about this vital service. Your engine is comprised of various components -- oil provides lubrication to all those moving parts and reduces friction. Without oil in your vehicle or even dirty oil, your engine will wear down much quicker.  Transmission oil: y ... read more

How the Cold Weather Affects Your Vehicle

How the Cold Weather Affects Your Vehicle

Winter doesn’t just affect us -- it affects our vehicle too. With winter quickly approaching, we will be breaking out our scarves, jackets, and other cold-weather items. Just like how we are preparing for winter, our vehicle needs to prepare too. Cold temperatures can negatively affect individual components of your vehicle, which subsequently affect your vehicle’s performance.  We encourage you to bring your vehicle to our shop, so our technicians can thoroughly inspect the following parts of your vehicle and provide a little extra TLC if needed:  Tires: When your tires are exposed to cold temperatures, the air in your tires will contract, which leads to your tire pressure dropping. Low tire pressure can result in poor traction and, even in difficult situations, tire failure pressure. Also, the chilly air can cause the rubber on your tires to harden, making it harder for your tires to gain traction on the road.  Battery: During winter, we use specific elec ... read more

5 Fall Car Care Tips For Your Tires

Time flies by and it is officially Fall. When we think of Autumn, we think of falling leaves, hot chocolate, and pumpkins, but it is also a perfect time to take care of your vehicle. Fall is an excellent time to start preparing for winter, as many of us will drive in wet, snowy, or chilly weather this autumn. To prepare for the upcoming weather changes, the team at South Park Tire & Auto has compiled areas of your vehicle that need a little extra TLC:  Don’t forget about your tire pressure! Our technicians certainly have not! Tires can actually lose one pound of pressure for every 10 degrees of Fahrenheit. During autumn, the temperatures begin to make their descent, so right now is an excellent time to have your tire pressure inspected by our team.  Think about making the switch to winter tires! Once your temperature drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, your tire’s ability to grip the road quickly decreases, especially if that tire is all-season. If you are d ... read more
