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.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Dependable Automotive Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 770-879-5799 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 Dependable Automotive Center, 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.
Dependable Automotive Center also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Dependable Automotive Center selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
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 Dependable Automotive Center 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.

Ok so my SUV broke down. I brought it to this guy hopeless that it could be fixed for under $500. But he did it!!!! He fixed my Beauty and made her all better again for allot less than $500. He kept in contact with me during the whole process and let me know everything he was going to do before he did it. He was very professional and super nice. I'm so grateful to him for fixing my car and getting me on my way. I would recommend you go to him for any car repairs you might need. He provides affordable service for fair prices in a timely manner. Thank you so much for saving my car.
