Tire & Wheel FAQS

Eagle Transmission would like to welcome you to our website's page dedicated to questions our automotive technicians get from our customers in the greater Rochester area about the repair and service

When should I balance my tires and wheels?

Eagle Transmission suggests that the tires and wheels on a vehicle should be balanced when new tires are mounted on wheels or any time a tire is changed. Tires should also be balanced at the first indication of any unusual sign of tread wear or vibration.

Is rotating tires really necessary?

Actually Eagle Transmission suggests to its customers in Rochester that rotating tires is a really important service to have done. Tire rotation is important as it helps all 4 tires wear evenly. Eagle Transmission suggests checking your vehicle owner manual for tips and any special recommendations for your vehicle.

Why is proper tire inflation so important?

Keeping your tires at the recommended pressure puts efficiency—and safety—first. Properly inflated tires don't overheat, they last longer, and they help you get better gas mileage. Plus, all tire specs and requirements are developed to work with your vehicle's other suspension, steering and body components to ensure maximum comfort, safety, handling, and braking efficiency.

What is the cost to install tires?
Eagle Transmission tells our customers in the Rochester area that they can expect on average to pay about $20 to $30 to install tires on their vehicle. Installing tires involves mounting and balancing each tire and usually an entire set of 4 tires can be mounted and balanced in about an hour. Eagle Transmission also tells our customers inquiring about how much it cost to install tires can depend of whether or not they are driving a luxury car or have specialty tire needs.
How much does it cost to fix alignment problems?
Eagle Transmission is often asked by our customers in and around the Rochester area how much it cost to fix alignment problems. Our automotive repair technicians tell our customers that a wheel alignment does not involves only labor costs, no parts, and for a two wheel alignment they can expect to pay about $30 - $75, and for a four wheel alignment a cost of about $50 to $95 can be expected. Eagle Transmission tells our customers that a wheel alignment is important as it helps ensure all four wheels are running parallel to one another and the tires are hitting the pavement at the proper angle. When wheels are not aligned properly, problems such as irregular tire wear, a crooked steering wheel, or poor vehicle handling may result. A wheel alignment at Eagle Transmission can generally take about 1 hour if not less than an hour. Our wheel alignment specialists place the vehicle on a lift so the wheels can rotate while a computer determines their orientation. This information is used to then compare it to manufacturer's specifications for that vehicle's year, make, and model. Wheel balancing, at a cost of about $12 per tire, can be done when having a wheel alignment done at Eagle Transmission.
