Providing good service is not new to Wiygul Automotive. Our founder James (Grandpa to many of us) Wiygul started what is now a family tradition of excellent customer service over 60 years ago. After a short time as a mechanic, he realized that while you can learn to fix everything with four wheels, every car owner needs tires for those wheels, regardless of the make or model. Installation, balancing, and rotating tires them is a basic skill set that we teach ever since Oscar Sr. (James’ son) opened the first Wiygul Automotive Clinic over 40 years ago.
It all starts with the wheel. We can match every size and almost every car in Waldorf, MD with Dunlop tires. Our technicians install and balance them or any other brand in under an hour to have you back on the road. If a customer brings us tires they purchased elsewhere, we are happy to install them as long as they match the wheels and do not interfere with the vehicle’s normal operation. We do not install any tire that might put a customer or her auto at risk.
No matter where a customer purchases the tires, we recommend installing a new set of four each time. It is faster and easier to balance four tires of the same brand and tread level. If a customer wants to switch out only the rear or front tires, we recommend using the same brand on the other wheels. Depending on the size involved, our installation rate $20 to $35 per wheel. That includes balancing and rotation if needed.
Balancing all four of your new Waldorf MD Dunlop tires helps to get the longest lifespan out of them. It ensures even tread wear, allows for a smoother ride, easier handling, and lowers fuel consumption. Routine balancing also reduces wear and tear on the wheel struts and shock absorbers, so we recommend scheduled balancing every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. If we did not originally install the tires, we charge $20 each to balance them.
A regular tire rotation schedule, combined with balancing, also helps to extend the lifespan of a set of tires. We recommend moving each set of tires from front to back and side to side every 5,000 to 8,000 miles to keep even tread wear over all of them. As with the balancing fee, we charge $20 per tire for the rotation if we did not install them.
Through the end of March, Wiygul Automotive is promoting with Goodyear, a mail-in rebate offer in addition to our already low prices. With the purchase of a selected set of 4 Dunlop tires, and depending on the size of the tires, each customer receives a prepaid, Goodyear MasterCard worth up to $60.
If you notice your steering wheel is beginning to shake at higher speeds, you need to have your tires balanced and rotated. If your tire tread is wearing smooth, you should bring in your vehicle into the Wiygul Automotive Clinic in Waldorf, MD for new Dunlop tires. Call today at 1-866-702-8050 to schedule an appointment.
