Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Evans Automotive and Tire Center.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Evans Automotive and Tire Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 904-819-6599 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Evans Automotive and Tire Center, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
Evans Automotive and Tire Center also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Evans Automotive and Tire Center selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Evans Automotive and Tire Center, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Evans Automotive and Tire Center to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
Rob and Justin at the front counter put me at ease from the first second I stepped into Evan's Automotive. They got the technicians on the vehicle immediately and got me on my way in a timely manner. I strongly recommend this mechanic shop 100% and they have definitely made me a customer for life!
Best customer service in town. Rob and Justin always go out of their way to accommodate. Thank you for always making sure our vehicles are road ready and in great working condition.
We have used Evan's a few times before and they always have done a great job. This week I found myself with a headlight out and a busy schedule. I stopped in to find out if there was anyone available to change the light. He went out to double check which light, found out they didn't have one in stock, but said he would have one there in 10 minutes. It came in five and I was back on the road. Thank you for such a little thing that can be a big deal!
I had a 70,000 mile service done on my car this week at Evans Automotive and I was very pleased with the friendliness of the staff. Their work was excellent and their prices very good. I am so pleased that I am returning for new tires tomorrow.
Great people, friendly and professional. Always ready to help .... Rob and the others at the front desk are awesome
Quick, honest and fair pricing. It doesn't get better than that. In my several decades of owning a car, I think these guys do it right. I've only said that about 2 other shops in all those years.
Very professional and friendly staff, professionals and most importantly, honest! We service our personal vehicles and a couple of our work vans here and they have always been fair and helped us in anything we needed, mechanic and tire work. I highly recommend this place.
Grand Slam !! These reviews you see are accurate. No better place to take your vehicle. Rob was Extremely knowledgeable and very professionable. They treat you like family. Fair honest, you will be glad you choose Evan's Automotive. Your gonna love the results.
I always get such great service at Evans from Rob and Justin at the front counter to the mechanics. If I've had a concern Mark has always been happy to address it and a happy resolution has been reached. I wouldn't take my trailblazer anywhere else for service or repairs.
Great place, extremely excellent service at the front desk. They attempted to patch a tire for me, but couldn't because the steel belt had separated. No charge for their efforts. Will definitely return to Evans next time I need service. Thanks for your help.
We took the van in to get the tire plugged after running over a screw and decided to get the AC looked at too. They have awesome customer service, very thorough in both diagnosing and explaining the issues. There's a nice clean waiting area with comfortable seats and a TV, and you can make coffee or get a water out of the fridge for free. Very nice set up! They also have a clean restroom for customers.
