Why Factory Scheduled Maintenance?

Why Factory Scheduled Maintenance?

Factory Scheduled Maintenance is designed to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape by checking your vehicle’s important systems and keeping them running optimally. Maintaining your vehicle can help it run longer and prevent problems down the road.  Generally, your first scheduled maintenance update comes around 7,500 miles and may come up again at the following mileages: 15,000, 30,000, 45,000, 60,000, 90,000, and 150,000. Each milestone has its own set maintenance such as an inspection of brake pads, rotating tires, replacing brake fluids, changing spark plugs, and more.    Lex Brodie’s Tire is your alternative automotive service center to the dealerships and any maintenance service done by Lex Brodie’s Tire will still validate your vehicle's warranty.  Stay safe on the road, save money, and enjoy a smoother, quieter ride by keeping your vehicle maintained with Lex Brodie’s Tire. We will be happy to assist you PLUS, you can earn bonus m ... read more

LEX BRODIE’S TIRE IN HILO WILL DISPOSE OF YOUR USED MOTOR OIL   Used motor oil contains toxic substances that can contaminate our land, ground water and ocean.

WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

Customers ask,"DO I REALLY NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?" Alignment assures your tires meet the road at the proper angle. It adjusts the angles of your vehicle’s wheels to original specs for best gas mileage, proper road contact, a smooth ride, and the longest tire life. We recommend an alignment after the installation of new tires or any suspension work. Keep in mind though that alignment adjustments on your vehicle do not last forever. If you hit a pothole or curb really hard, you may risk the chance of kicking your alignment out of spec. Best to get your vehicle check so that you don't risk the chance of wearing out your tires prematurely. Come into LEX BRODIE'S TIRE and we'll be happy to give you a free wheel alignment check after any tire or suspension service. Thank you... Very Much

IMPORTANCE OF WHEEL BALANCING:

IMPORTANCE OF WHEEL BALANCING:

Proper wheel balancing is required to allow the wheel to spin without any vibrations so that your vehicle handles at peak performance. Unbalanced wheels can cause stress on the wheel bearing and components of the suspension. This can also cause increase gas usage. Wheels that are not properly aligned and balanced, can lead to premature wearing and decrease in tire life
