Mounting and removing a tire from a wheel requires specialist equipment and knowledge. Tires have markings, generally referred to as the ‘GG ring’, and when installed this marking needs to be checked to make certain that the tire’s bead is seated correctly. Wheels are typically equipped with a rib that locks the tire’s bead in place, good fitment will ensure the best outcome in the event of rapid deflation and will ensure good wear and handling. Remember too that often tires are required to rotate in a set direction. Read more »
Wheel alignment is the position of the wheels relative to your car. When properly aligned, the wheels point in the right direction. Without proper alignment, the wheels resist your steering commands, as well as each other. Alignment also affects gas mileage and tire wear. If your tires are pointed in different directions, they fight against each other and can cause tread wear. Read more »

Installing tires, consumes other items. There is a bead lubricant that is designed to support the correct fitment of the tire and reduce the potential for damage to the tire and wheel in the fitment process. There are solvents and cleaners needed to remove coatings that the manufacturer places on the tires to protect them during shipping and storage. Often the wheel itself needs cleaning to remove dirt that may impact the balancing of the wheel and to make certain that the wheel’s mounting face that attaches to the vehicle is clear. There are lubricants and products used on the wheel nuts themselves. Read more »

An oil change service is the simplest yet most important preventative maintenance service for your vehicle. Engine oil keeps all of the moving parts in the engine operating smoothly and cleanses the engine. The oil continuously circulates through the oil filter to keep the oil clean of debris that could harm the engine. Over a period of time the oil filter starts to lose its ability to clean and the oil becomes dirty and the lubrication qualities diminish. We recommend changing the oil as well as the oil filter every 3,000-5,000 miles. At Graham Tire, we are proud to offer Conventional, Synthetic Blend and Full Synthetic motor oils to meet your manufacturer recommendations. Read more »
