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.
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 Bobby's Auto Service Center.
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.
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.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Bobby's Auto Service Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 772-770-3738 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Bobby's Auto Service Center, 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 Bobby's Auto Service 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.
The people at Bobby's are amazing! I am from out of state and my car broke down. The tow truck driver suggested I take it to Bobby's so, although I was skeptical, not being from the area, that's what I did. Given the circumstances, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Bill and the rest of the folks at Bobby's made my nightmare experience manageable and easy. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in Vero Beach needing work done on their vehicle. They are so friendly and great to work with.
Excellent work and customer service. Would highly recommend to everyone!
Honest and fair prices. Just what you want when it comes to repairing your car.
A family business, honest and fair prices, dependable service. They will take care of you and your vehicle.
Best place to take your car for any problems, wouldn't take my car anywhere else.
I refer all my clients to Bobby's, especially the new ones. When people relocate or buy a second home in Vero Beach they need to know the best of the best to help them settle in. So I tell them Bobby's is the best for automobile servicing. Honest people and reasonable prices! Bill, Brenda and the rest of the crew will take care of you too.
These guys are few of the honesty people in this world. They're awesome....an oil change does not end up costing you 500.
Totally trustworthy. Completely capable. Fair pricing. What more can you ask for?
My truck broke down, which was an easy fix for me, however the tow truck busted my brake line. I went to Bobby's for help, they couldn't have been better. My estimate was more then reasonable, and told me to give him a day. I dropped it off at 230 in the afternoon, by 4 they called and said it was fixed and ready to go. Great place and highly recommend!
I have purchased two cars from their clients for my son. They are fair to deal with and trustworthy, I would refer them to anyone for mechanical work or if one of their clients are selling their cars.
We have been going to them for over 15 years. Billy and Bobby been excellent people to deal with. I can't say enough good things about them. The biggest details I look for when searching for a repair professional is honesty and quality. That is important to me. I always feel comfortable with them and their service is of the highest quality. The people who work there are very knowledgeable in their field. If I don't know what's wrong with my vehicle they take the time to find out, tell me what is wrong and then fix it. What else can you ask for?
