Our founder, James Earl Wiygul, began the family tradition over 60 years ago of providing excellent customer service. His son, Oscar Sr., continued this tradition when he opened the first Wiygul Automotive Clinic in 1976. Today, our trained mechanics and technicians keep the idea going with superb work on virtually every model and make of car driving in Maryland. Installing, balancing, and rotating tires are among those basic skills we teach every technician.
The process starts with the wheel size. In Clinton, MD, Dunlop tires are an excellent choice for every size wheel and nearly every car driving today. Our technicians can install any tire that a customer either purchased from us or another outlet and brings in for mounting as long as it matches the wheel size and does not interfere with normal performance. When the tire is unsafe to install for any reason, under no circumstance do we put a customer or his auto at risk.
If a customer needs more than a single tire, we recommend installing four new ones. When he wants to change only the front or rear wheels, we still recommend replacing them with the same brand as the tires already on the car. We charge from $20 to $35 per tire, depending on the wheel size. This price also includes balancing.
Balancing is necessary for each wheel to make certain the customer gets the longest possible lifespan for their new tires. Doing this also provides a smoother ride, even wear on the treads and improved fuel consumption. Wiygul also recommends balancing tires after every 6,000 to 8,000 miles to prevent uneven tread wear, and protect the shock absorbers and wheel struts.
If you notice your steering wheel is starting to shake, or the car is vibrating and beginning to handle rough on the I-4, you may need to have your tires balanced again. If you can see the tire tread is wearing unevenly, you need to bring it your car into Wiygul today. There is no charge if we installed them, and only $20 per tire if we did not.
Regular tire rotation is also required to keep the tread wear even and extend the lifespan. We recommend front to back and side to side rotation every 5,000 to 8,000 miles and include free rotation as part of every installation. If we did not install the tires, the charge for rotation is $20 each.
For Clinton, MD autos, Dunlop tires are among the best on the market today. If you want to install a new set of four tires, or just need a routine balance and rotation; bring your car to the Wiygul Automotive Clinic. Call us today at 1-866-702-8050 for an appointment or with any question you might have. We want to provide you with the best customer service and tires available in Maryland.
