When you need Dunlop tires in Alexandria, VA, Wiygul Automotive Clinic offers some of the lowest prices and most complete service in Virginia.
James Wiygul (that’s Grandpa to us) started our family tradition of providing excellent customer service more than 60 years ago. While we can handle any make and model out there, tires are an item that every car needs on a regular basis. Installing and servicing them is a basic set of skills that we have worked on and perfected ever since Oscar Wiygul Sr. opened the first Wiygul Automotive repair shop back in 1976.
We begin the installation process by determining the wheel size. For nearly every car in Alexandria, VA, Dunlop tires are an excellent choice, but we can install any tire that a customer might buy from us or bring for mounting as long as it fits the wheels and does not scrape against the wheel wells. If the tire is unsafe to mount, we do not put a customer at risk.
Whenever a customer calls us about bringing in tires to install for them, we recommend changing out all four at once. If he or she just wants to change out the rear or front wheels, we strongly recommend using the same brand as the tires already on the car. Depending on the size involved, we offer a discounted rate of $20 to $35 per wheel. That includes balancing the wheels and tires as well.
We balance each wheel to ensure the customer gets the longest life possible out of their new tires. Balancing also provides a smoother ride, even tire wear, and better fuel efficiency. In addition to balancing at installation, we also recommend it at every 6,000 to 8,000 miles to prevent unnecessary wear on not just the tires, but the shock absorbers and wheel struts as well.
Signs that indicate the need for to balance the tires are rough handling on the highway, a shaky steering wheel at any speed, the car vibrates while driving, and the tires are wearing out tread unevenly. If we installed the tires, we balance them again for free. If we did not, Wiygul Automotive only charges $20 per tire.
In addition to balancing, we also recommend regular rotation of the tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. By moving them front to back and them side to side, we can help even out tread wear and extend their life. If we installed the tires, Wiygul rotates them at no charge. If we did not, installation is only $20 per tire.
