TIRES

 71 Verified Review(s)

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 antilock 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.


Alignments
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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Affordable Auto and Truck Repair has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 727-329-8728 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Affordable Auto and Truck Repair, 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.

Tire Inspection
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
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.

Used Tires
Affordable Auto and Truck Repair also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Affordable Auto and Truck Repair selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Affordable Auto and Truck Repair, 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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair 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.


Cooper
Goodyear
Pirelli

what our customers say

This is the third time, we have used Affordable Auto and Truck Repair. They are honest. After looking over our vehicle, they told us what needed to be repaired. They did not try to add items, or get money for repairs that were unnecessary. They were very efficient, and on point with price and completion. We highly recommend and will continue to use this company.

I recently had a serious emergency with my Toyota tundra and the dealership really lied to me and try to take me for a ride almost $5000 until I found Affordable Auto they checked everything out so many things were over embellished from the dealership and or just a straight lie. They saved me $3000 plus I got brakes out of it as well as the things that needed to be fixed so I'm pretty happy and they've been very very responsive and have checked on me after service to make sure I'm happy with everything really means a lot that they follow up definitely will recommend this place to anybody.

The guys who work here are great at what they do. I came to them to get my compressor fixed under my car dealership warranty. Troy took care of the entire thing & even spent hours on the phone negotiating with my warranty company to make sure that I had the most affordable price & my car back as soon as possible (as he knows I have children & need a vehicle) They even threw in a desperately needed free oil change. I can't thank them enough. This is my new favorite spot to take my car & I will be recommending all of my friends & family to come here. Thank you so much to this crew for fixing my AC in the middle of summer!

5 STAR and above! Affordable Auto and Truck Repair of Clearwater is fast, fair and an affordable auto shop. I took my car in for battery terminals replacement, and they were much cheaper than the car dealership I went to earlier this morning who quoted me, with at least $200 cost for parts and labor. I highly recommend this auto shop! They are very professional, knowledgeable, very helpful & honest. Final price was exactly as they said with no last minute or hidden fees. It's hard to find an amazing genuine mechanic/auto shop! Thank you again Affordable Auto and Truck Repair of Clearwater. I am a very very very happy customer who saved a lot of money.
