Passenger Light Truck Rim and Wheel Refinishing
Wheel vibrations can damage your tires and cause so much damage to the steering and suspension systems of your vehicle. In addition, damaged wheels can cause your rim to not hold proper air pressure. We offer state of the art equipment to repair most out of round or bent wheels back to a true, balanced condition.
Tire Balancing is important to extend the life of your tires, as well as increase the basic safety of your vehicle. Lottridge Tire offers quality affordable Passenger and Light Truck tire balancing in the Mississauga shop. For Commercial truck tires we can assist in both locations, Mississauga and Beamsville, Ontario.
What it does: Out of balance tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration and potentially unsafe driving performance. It is very important to balance tires frequently based on your car’s requirements.
When do wheels need to be balanced: Tires are balanced when you replace 2 or 4 tires on your automobile. Because tires wear depending on driving routines and road conditions, unequal wear will start to become recognizable after the first 1,000-2,000 kilometres of usage. Tires must be checked for balance every 4,000-6,000 kilometres. Our technicians can easily help identify whether your tires should be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.
IMPORTANT: It is not advisable to replace just one tire as this might create major problems to the alignment, balance and handling of the vehicle.
How to tell if your tires require balancing:
- Vibrations when driving
- Uneven tread wear
- Steering that becomes less smooth over the life of the tires
- Pulling to one side
The benefits of balanced tires are:
- Smoother ride
- Better kilometres per gallon
- More even tire wear
- Prolonged life of tires and drive train parts

Part of maintaining a healthy vehicle includes changing used or faulty tires. Lottridge Tire offers quality affordable auto repair services in our Mississauga Location and Tire Installation in both locations, Mississauga and Beamsville, ON.
What it is: Tire maintenance is very important to the safety and longevity of your car. Tires selection is to be by the right dimension for the vehicle make and model. Tires should be bought in sets of four (4), or at the very least matching groups of two (2) on each axle. You can shop for tires on our website by size, brand name, or car make, model, and year. Browse our huge inventory of tires, and compare tire specifications and costs before you buy, to see to if you are receiving the best tires for your needs and price range.
Why should it be done: Tires wear in time; tread starts to become thin, which can result in the used wheel losing traction. This creates safety risks that should be avoided. Manufactures recommend tires cannot be used for longer than ten (10) years. We recommend replacing tires every six (6) years, yet with regular usage tires being replaced, every couple of years is more common. Wear happens with regular driving. Other factors such as driving habits, roadway conditions and weather may reduce the life of your tires.
You may need new tires if:
- Your tread is below 4/32, or can not pass the “penny” test
- Footstep is noticeably minimized or flush with the tread bars
- Irregular tread wear
- Bulges, bumps or soft spots on the tire
- Damages to the tire that can not be fixed
Speak with our mechanics about how we appropriately setup your new tires. This includes:
- Checking the lug nuts for wear
- Installing new valve stems

Flat Tires can induce the rim of the tire to rest on the tire tread or on the ground possibly triggering in loss of control of the automobile or irrecoverable damage to the tire. One of the most usual causes for a flat tire is piercing of the tire by a sharp object, such as a nail, allowing air to escape. Depending on the dimension of the slit, the tire might deflate slowly or swiftly, which may result in the following problems:
- Failing of or damages to the valve stem;
- Permitting air to escape from the valve or creating damage by means of deliberate puncturing
- Rubbing of the tire against the roadway, ripping the tire, or separation of tire and rim by accident with additional objects;
- Extreme wear of the tire tread causing explosive tire failure or permitting roadway debris to tear through it
Some tires, particularly a slow leakage, can easily be fixed and re-inflated; others, particularly those from worn tread, need to be changed.
Here are some simple methods to catch tire issues before they become costly or unsafe. Take a good examination of each tire in a well-lit atmosphere. Examine for unequal tire wear, which may be induced by:
- Excessive or too little air pressure
- Problems with wheel alignment or tire balancing
- Problems with the suspension
- Unequal tire wear might be an indicator that you could have to have your tires rotated
These might imply you require new tires… quickly. Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, may result in a fatal collision. These problems could potentially cause a blowout, leading to a loss of control that could quickly become extremely dangerous.
- Splitting or protruding treads or sidewalls that might imply there is wear or weak point
- Foreign objects that penetrate in to the tire (nails, screws, glass)
- Tread tearing away from the body of the tire
