Tires are the only parts of your vehicle that actually touch the road, so proper inflation, even tread wear and new tires, if necessary, are important. That’s why Jiffy Lube® offers a full range of tire services.
Having the correct amount of pressure in your tires means your vehicle is getting optimal contact with the road. Properly inflated tires help improve fuel economy and wear more evenly as well. That’s why the Jiffy Lube® Tire Rotation Service includes checking the tire pressure and inflating or deflating the tires as appropriate to meet your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
Tire Rotation Service
Tires rotated at your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended intervals tend to wear more evenly. This maintains better tread depth and traction, which helps your tires hug the road better, especially in bad weather, and helps keep you driving longer. Jiffy Lube® technicians follow tire and vehicle manufacturer recommendations so that your tires wear evenly and your vehicle can be on the road longer.
Front to Rear
Tires on the wheel axle that get power from the engine wear faster than tires on the wheel axle that don’t. This causes uneven tread wear on either your front tires if you have a front-wheel drive vehicle or your rear tires if you have a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Tire manufacturers may refuse to honor a warranty if the tires are not properly rotated at the prescribed intervals, so bring your to your local Jiffy Lube® for a Tire Rotation Service. We’ll rotate your tires from front to back and/or left to right in accordance with the recommendations for your particular vehicle and tires to help you get the most life out of your tires.
Inspect and Inflate
While performing a rotation, Jiffy Lube® technicians also inspect your tires for uneven wear that may be signs of improper inflation, or of worn or misaligned suspension parts, and may recommend related services if they spot a problem. The service also includes a tire-pressure check and inflation (or deflation) to put you back on the road with properly inflated tires.
Flat Tire Repair
Getting a flat tire really slows you down. That’s why the highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube® are knowledgeable about Flat Tire Repair. They can address where the leak or hole is, patch it up and get you back on the road quickly before it can become an even bigger drag.
Patches, Plugs and Valves
Whether it’s slowly leaking air or your dashboard tire pressure light has come on, bring your vehicle into a local Jiffy Lube® to have a Jiffy Lube technician take a look at it. It might just be a faulty tire valve stem that needs replacing, or perhaps your tire needs a patch or plug; either way, driving on an underinflated tire can damage it beyond repair and lead to a loss in handling and fuel economy. Driving on a completely flat tire can cause wheel damage, which can cost you more in the long run, so mount the spare or get roadside assistance.
It’s Not Just a Repair. It’s Complete Service.
Jiffy Lube® technicians are experienced with Tire Repair. First, they determine whether the tire is repairable, inspecting for wear, potential structural damage to the tire and previous repairs. To fix it, a patch or plug is put into place, completely sealing the tire to industry standards. After the patch or plug has set, they inflate the tire to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, which can also be found on the driver’s side doorjamb. They then balance the wheel and tire to distribute weight evenly on the wheel for a smoother ride and then mount the tire back onto your vehicle.
