Tire Sales & Tire Service
Tires are a car’s most direct connection to the road, but choosing a new tires can be daunting for the inexperienced. On the other hand, making the wrong choice can haunt you for years - the wrong tires can be uncomfortable, noisy, and even dangerous for your road conditions and driving style. Plus, unless you change them again, you’ll have to deal with their shortcomings for years. However, to the average driver different brands and types of tires look just about identical. To make things even more confusing, every manufacturer claims that it makes the best tires, and all of them cost more than anybody wants to spend.
How do you know when you need new tires? You should pay attention to your vehicle’s performance, tires’ tread depth, and the age of your tires. A good general rule is that if a tire is more than six years old, even if it looks new and has never been driven on, it should be inspected thoroughly before use. The rubber becomes more brittle as it ages and can lead to tire failure or loss of performance. As a consumer, you have the right to demand newer tires if you are buying them from a retailer. To determine the date of a tire’s manufacture, look for a series on the sidewall that begins with “DOT”. The last four numbers in this sequence will tell you the week and year that a tire was made. For example, 1710 means that the tire was made in the 17th week of 2010.
If you were satisfied with the performance of your old tires, you can of course replace them with the exact same model. Most car companies spend thousands of dollars in research and development and work with tire manufacturers to choose the tires that best suit their cars, but OEM tires can be much more expensive than aftermarket ones, especially from the dealership.
Many drivers choose to replace worn OEM tires with aftermarket tires, whether it is in the interest of saving money or changing vehicle performance traits. If you choose to change tires, both online tire stores and the original manufacturer should be able to suggest other models that suit your needs.
If you want something new, you should consider the different types of tires and choose one which best matches your driving style, preferences, and road conditions. “Touring” tires may provide a softer and more comfortable ride, but performance may suffer slightly. On the other hand, high performance tires may enable you to turn, stop, and accelerate faster but be noisier and cause a harsher ride. All-season tires can provide passable performance in most conditions, but will be heavily outperformed by dedicated “summer” or winter tires, and “economy” tires may be cheap and noisy with mediocre performance but provide the best fuel economy. Used tires are never recommended, but if your budget only allows for used tires make sure to check that they are still suitable for use.
Here at ExperTec Automotive in Huntington Beach, we are happy to help you choose a new set of tires for your ride.

To understand why your bearings are so serious, first we must know what a wheel bearing is. A wheel bearing is a set of steel balls held together by a metal ring called a race. They help your vehicle’s wheels spin fast with as little friction as possible. On cars, the wheel bearing rides on a metal axle shaft and fits tightly inside the hub, which is the part that holds the lug bolts used to bolt each wheel onto your car.
Most wheel bearings are made of hardened steel, and are very durable. Their two worst enemies are heat and water. These can destroy a wheel bearing, especially once the seal is broken. Seals protect the bearings from water and debris and seal in the high-temperature grease that lubricates the bearing, but a wheel bearing will start disintegrating quickly once the seal is broken and begin to make noise.
