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 Bear Tire and Auto Center.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Bear Tire and Auto Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 609-261-1228 if you have questions, or schedule an appointment so we can evaluate 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 Bear Tire and Auto 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.

Testimonials

  • Great Service, friendly staff, all around pleasure to do business with. Their tow truck drivers are the most professional you will ever encounter!
    -Rich M.

  • I was getting my car towed to another shop in the morning. The driver, who was very professional, said if I took it to Bear they'd beat the price, fix it up, and have it to me later before I needed to go to work. They did it all. Very impressed. Will go here for regularly scheduled maintenance and any other automotive problems from now on. Great customer service too!
    -Eddie F.

  • I'd like to encourage everyone to give bear a shot. They're a local family ran business that has been here for decades. The husband, wife, and son run the shop with their friendly staff. I've taken each of my cars here for almost 10 years. The do good work at fair cost. I like that they do small work like oil changes and tire repairs all the way to engine and transmission work. I don't have to have different people for tires, oil changes, and major repairs which is a time saver.
    -Lee H.

  • Courteous, fast, professional work in towing me in, diagnosing my issue and completing repair. Job (starter replacement) came in below RepairPal median estimate, and was done really fast. All in all I would recommend this shop based on my experience there.

    -Carl S.

  • Great service, had my oil changed. No pressure for upgrades or other services. They did notice i needed new tires and drew up a quote, given to me when i paid, and we're not pushy about it at all. Great price too, will end up going back for more services in the future.
    -Carmella S.

  • I love Bear Tire and Auto. This is the only place that I trust to do the right thing by me and by my car. They are honest and up front; they tell you what needs to be fixed, what can wait, what you should be thinking about in the future, etc. They don't give you any BS pricing over the phone - they want to see the car and give you an honest price. They do great work in a timely matter. Their manager, JT, is an awesome guy to work with. I have several cars and I trust all of them to Bear Tire and Auto.
