Why Balancing Winter Tire is Important At Sils Auto

Why Balancing Winter Tire is Important At Sils Auto

IMAGES ABOVE RECENT VEHICLE: 2005 Toyota Camry. Winter tires to be installed. Recent installed but shaking. Inspected tire and noted lots of dirt stuck to inner rim. Rims cleaned and tire pressure set to specification. Pre reading on tire was out, removed all weights, and re-balanced tire with correct weights. After tire came up "ok" to install. Balancing a tire prevents shaking of the steering wheel of vehicle when driving, usually felt between 90-120 kms. Also time issue, a return visit to the shop is a waste of time. At Sil's Complete Auto Repair we're not a tire shop but a auto repair facility that does tires. Trained techs also inspect brakes, steering and suspension for your safety. In this vehicles case the rear brakes are very low and need attention. Something a Quick lube, or Costco retailer does not have the trained staff to look at. A repair not performed at the correct time may lead to additional monies spent later on. Also all wheels are torqued to proper specification and ... read more

Make Your Battery Last

Today’s report from Sils Complete Auto Care Centre is on car batteries, why they die and what we can do to lengthen their life. Most of us have had a dead battery at one time or another. In fact, it would be very unusual if you hadn’t. You may be surprised to learn that only 30 percent of Oakville vehicle batteries last for 48 months. Now that’s an average. How long a battery lasts depends on many factors. You may not know that one of the biggest factors is the temperature where you live and drive around Oakville. You might suppose that cold weather was harder on batteries because it takes more power to crank a cold engine, but the opposite is actually true. Batteries in very cold climates have a life expectancy of 51 months as opposed to 30 months in very warm climates. The reason is simple: batteries are chemically more active when they’re hot than when they’re cold. A car battery will actually start to discharge on its own within 24 hours in hot weather ... read more
