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 Westgate High Tech Auto Care.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Westgate High Tech Auto Care has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 402-397-8144 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 Westgate High Tech Auto Care, 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.
Westgate High Tech Auto Care also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Westgate High Tech Auto Care selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Westgate High Tech Auto Care, 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 Westgate High Tech Auto Care 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.
Been going to Westgate for over a year now and can't be more pleased. Every repair bill you receive is itemized so you can see how much each part/service was and how much labor was charged. Dan has routinely demonstrated his honest business practices when diagnosing and repairing our vehicles. He's always communicated to me effectively and respectfully. I know when I take my car here I can trust that I will be receiving high quality repairs and that I will never be taken advantage of.
Wonderful service! Very knowledgeable, trusting, and doesn't over charge! I won't take my car anywhere else!

I suddenly had a flat tire and pulled into Westgate High Tech Auto. They were so friendly and were able to pull my vehicle in right away. They fixed/plugged the hole in the tire quickly and I was able to make it to my meeting. This is a family owned and operated business and it was refreshing to be treated so well!
