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 Affordable Kar Kare.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Affordable Kar Kare has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 972-329-0771 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 Affordable Kar Kare, 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.
Affordable Kar Kare 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 Kar Kare selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Affordable Kar Kare, 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 Kar Kare 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.
Good, dedicated, and honest service
Perry is great! Knowledgeable, reliable, and funny.
Good place and the owner is a fair guy. I recommend this place for sure and they have coupons too!
Russell is the man. I spent a lot of money. But he told me every problem, even describing the sound so I knew what was fixed and his only concern was my safety. Even when he knew I didn't get paid till Friday he fixed it and said pay it Friday. His concern was my safety. That's not just a good mechanic but an awesome human.
I have seen the reviews but my experience with this shop was great , maybe they had different mechanics then but I brought my Trans Am to them for a problem that 2 other shops in mesquite could not diagnose or fix ! Friend referred me and we'll all I can say is this is the only shop who could diagnose and fix my car . They are very honest and up front on what your car needs and doesn't need and they checked everything even let me know that certain belts would need to be changed soon and showed me so I will never take my car anywhere else.
I like Affordable Kar Kare. We take all our cars there, and they always work hard to fix the problem. It is a great value for your money.
This is a great place to take your vehicle for service and repairs. I always feel that I'm getting a great deal and reasonable price and have never been talked down too and all services are explained to where I understand them. Thank you Perry and keep up the great work!
From the time the gentleman that answered the phone to the time I left with my vehicle completly fixed, my entire experience with Affordable was incredible. They answered ALL of my questions and gave me all my options. I am so incredibly impressed with the service and the work that I get there.They even dropped me off at work. That's service!!
Great place to take your car. They have years of experience. Took my 2004 F150 up there and they had it running like a champ in no time. They informed me of why I needed the repairs and the most affordable way to go. Love these guys!!! They really live up to the name AFFORDABLE
A brake warning displayed on the dash of my Mercedes on Saturday afternoon. I got to Affordable Kar Kare just before they were supposed to close. One of my brake pads had broken and was literally crumbling apart!!! I could not drive it without tearing up the rotors or wait until after Labor Day. They stayed open late for me, replaced the brake pads and turned the rotors. Even though their guys were ready to start the Labor Day holiday.. they stayed late to help me and I paid less than I expected. I cannot ask for better customer service than that. Thank you
