Our Tire Services
When purchasing new tires, you will want to get the proper installation done. Otherwise, you may notice vibrations due to improperly balanced tires, premature tire wear, or suspension issues.
You may also want to swap your tires out for snow tires in the winter, or add all-weather tires to ensure you're prepared for any road conditions. Learn more about all-weather versus snow tires.
If you need to replace worn tires, we can handle all steps of the replacement process:
- Removal of the tires and wheels
- Inspection of the wheels, lug nuts, and tires
- Mounting and installation of the new tires
- Installation of the valve stems, if applicable
- Inflating and balancing the new tires
- Replacing the wheels, if applicable
- Reactivating the tire pressure system

When your new tires are installed, we balance them on a spin-balancing machine, which distributes the weight for the wheel/tire set around the axle. If any imbalance is found, the weight will be adjusted and balanced for the life of the tire. Then, we remount the tires and wheels and set the tire pressure according to your vehicle’s specifications.
You should have your tires rebalanced after every new installation or routinely when you get an oil change. When in doubt, check your owner’s manual for how often you should get your tires rebalanced.
In order to optimize the tread depth and uneven wear on your tires, you should get your tires rotated every 3,000 to 6,000 miles or according to what the manufacturer recommends.
A typical rotation means moving your tires from one side of the vehicle to the other, moving them front to back, or you can do a combination of both.
For this routine, we do the following:
- Remove the tires
- Inspect the wear and tear
- Rotate the tires
- Tighten the lug nuts as needed
- Check and reset the tire pressure accordingly
It is important to get your tires rotated so your tires can last longer. If you delay getting your tires rotated regularly, it could lead to decreased gas mileage as well as poor performance overall.
Rotation, balancing, and wheel alignment are just a few of the ways you can extend the life of your tires.
It’s always frustrating when you suddenly get a flat tire. At Naylor’s Auto Repair, we can take care of your flat or punctured tire so you don’t have to purchase a new set. We can either repair your tire with a plug or a patch, depending on the damage.
Our flat repair services include the following:
- Removal of the flat tire
- Inspection of the damage: internal and external
- Repairing the inside of the tire
- Puncture fill
- Rebalancing and remounting the tire
- Evaluation of the tread
- Tire pressure check and reset

In order to drive safely and put less strain on the CV joints, axles, and engine of the car, you should get your wheels aligned immediately. Misaligned wheels can be dangerous and impact the performance of your vehicle overall. Check out our Wheel Alignment services here for more information.
Suspension Lift Kits (For Trucks)
If you need a modification to your truck for off-road performance, we can install a suspension lift kit. This type of lift raises the front-end level with the rear. We can raise your lift up two inches if you have larger tires as well as add ground clearance for off-roading.
If you want more enhancement, we can jack your truck up to 4-8 inches. However, these kits would require longer suspension components as well as other adjustments to maintain the lift.
