TIRES

TIRES

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.


Alignments
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 Peoples Choice Auto Repair.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Peoples Choice Auto Repair has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 865-272-3379 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, 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.

Tire Inspection
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
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.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, 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 Peoples Choice Auto Repair 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.


BFGoodrich
Bridgestone
Goodyear
Michelin
Uniroyal

Thousands of miles from home the dreaded check engine light came on. We took our Honda to them. They got us right in and identified the problem, got it repaired and we were on our way. About 8 miles down the road the check engine light came back on. Back we went. Seems that Hondas are particular beasts and don't work with after market parts. They stood behind their work, replaced the parts with OEM parts at no cost. Good honest hard working folks. If your car breaks down around Oak Ridge, take it to People's Choice.

Blazer 2004, bought new, only owner. My car had all kinds of little problems here & there. Took it in to have it "gone over". Left it a week while on vac. They went through everything. Got it back and couldn't be happier. Runs awsome, like new. Jerry Hunter was my mechanic, great guy! Staff was also great & professional. Cost me a bit, but well worth not having to l?k for a new car with a new car payment. ???

Had my breaks, rotors and a fuel pump sensor replaced. The work took a little longer then planed but I had it back the next day. However, I still had issues. When I called with my concerns I was in Knoxville already, having drove straight there after getting my car. Jessica listened to my concerns, made arrangements immediately to have it towed and within a few hours they had resolved the issue. I trust the mechanics there, and simple mistakes like tightening the drums too tight happens. But for me, someone who is not mechanically inclined and smells burning rubber it is an anxiety moment. But the staff handled it well, the tow company was professional and fast. I have no problems with bringing my car back again or referring other to them.

Highly recommend People's Choice for your car repairs. Very knowledgeable staff. Everything was explained in detail. My car was a nightmare for them. One problem led to another. I was kept up to date with everything that was going on with the repairs. They did a lot of work from timing assembly replacement to engine replacement, starter replacement and now sway bar link. My car is great. I'm enjoying driving it again. Can't say enough about People's Choice great staff and the crucial part each one plays in their team. Thanks so much! I will be doing business with them again. They have also worked on both of my daughter's cars with great results. I will be recommending them to anyone that has car issues.

Peoples Choice saved the day. After waiting half the day for another shop to fix the brakes on my Mother-in-law's car, we found out they hadn't even touched it yet, even though we had an appointment. We called People Choice, explained the situation, and and they assured us they had the parts in stock and could fit us in immediately. They had her back on the road in no time.
