Much the same as any other tire store, a Hyundai tire department provides full tire service for Hyundai vehicles and others. Full service can include a repair whether the valve stem for inflation is broken or a hole needs to be patched. Additionally, regular maintenance is performed, including visual inspection of tread wear, balancing and rotating tires, as well as making sure they are properly inflated. When the time comes, of course, we sell and install new tires. An important aspect of the service is Hyundai technicians are trained to not just fix the tires but check for any underlying causes if the tires are wearing faster than they should or unevenly, and can look for any potential problems which might lead to worse damage or the need for further repairs.
Tires are the contact point between the vehicle and the road and are the final system maintaining the car’s performance when accelerating or stopping. As such, they undergo a lot of stress during normal driving, both from the physical aspect of holding the vehicle’s weight and from constant heating and cooling from the friction against the pavement.
As these stresses wear down the tread, the car loses performance under adverse conditions such as snow, ice, or mud, and also lose traction on wet roads. If the tires weren’t designed the way they are, the ride would be noisy and jarring even at low speeds in town and undrivable at highway speeds.
If regular maintenance such as tire rotation, balancing, and maintaining proper air pressure is ignored, tires will wear out faster than would typically be expected. Eventually, the car will become uncomfortable for the driver and passengers as the tires aren’t doing their part in maintaining the balance of the car. Even if that weren’t a problem in itself, it can lead to misalignment or damage to the shocks, struts, and other parts of the suspension system. Arguably and depending on when and where it happens, such problems can be worse than the flat tire which will eventually occur.
It’s important to go to an authorized Hyundai dealer because their trained technicians are familiar with the specific make and model of the car you drive.
