Your New Tire Destination

Rad Air of Garfield Heights

Tires are the one thing that keeps you rolling to all of your favorite destinations. At Rad Air of Garfield Heights, we can help you inspect and maintain your current tires and, if needed, help you shop for a new set of tires at an affordable price. Our automotive technicians begin by thoroughly inspecting your current tires for wear and tread depth.

How to Assess Wear and Tread Depth

Buying New Vehicle Tires

When you are thinking about buying new tires for your vehicle, there are some important considerations:

  • Does your vehicle actually need new tires? Just because your tires are a few years old doesn’t mean that you necessarily need new tires. When you stop by Rad Air of Garfield Heights, our team will inspect your tire wear pattern and tread depth before determining whether to recommend a tire rotation service or new tires.
  • Get all the information on your tires. Before deciding on which tires to purchase, think through the pricing, the quality of the brand, and whether the type of tire is appropriate for the driving conditions you encounter daily in and around Garfield Heights.
  • Ask about the size of the tires needed for your car or truck. Tires are sized based on their diameter and tread depth. Compact vehicles, for example, generally take much smaller-sized tires than trucks, which can impact the price significantly.
  • Consider the weather. If you are planning on doing a lot of winter driving, a set of snow tires might be a worthwhile investment for your vehicle. Designed specifically for snow and ice, snow tires can help keep you and your family safe. If you do not drive in rough road conditions on a regular basis, a set of multi-season tires might be your best option.
