Every car and truck owner needs to know when it is time to inspect their tires, perform maintenance, and when it is time to install new Michelin Tires on their Alexandria, VA vehicle. At Wiygul Automotive, that means providing a full-service plan to every customer that drives into one of our Clinics.
We perform all tire-related services at each Clinic to include inspection, rotation, and installation. Even if you buy a new car, it is always a good idea to have the tires and key systems inspected by a reputable service agent. Every Wiygul Clinic performs a free, visual tire inspection.
Regardless if it is a new or used car or truck, owners need to have the tires inspected whenever they have them rotated. For most vehicles, we recommend tire rotation every 5000 to 8000 miles, depending on driving style and type of drivetrain. Regular rotation keeps tire wear even which reduces the risk of blowouts and helps with traction while driving. That means moving all four tires from front to rear, and then side to side. The cost for a tire rotation at Wiygul is $20 per vehicle.
If mechanics notice excessive wear at an initial inspection, or while performing a tire rotation, they bring it to the customer’s attention immediately. Even if only one tire shows excessive wear, we still recommend replacing all four. Replacing only one tire is like a person deciding to run a marathon with an athletic shoe on the left foot and a rubber boot on the right. Wear is uneven, maintaining balance is difficult, and performance is compromised from the first step.
That is why Wiygul Automotive offers one of the largest tire manufacturers for Alexandria, VA cars and trucks; Michelin Tires. Founded by brothers Andre and Edouard in 1889, the company today has 67 manufacturing plants across North and South America, Asia, and Europe. Their tires are on virtually every automobile model and are featured in professional races worldwide.
The Michelin lines we offer are extensive and include the Pilot and Defender. Some of the popular models from those lines include the following:
The Pilot XGT Z4 is an ultra-high performance, all season tire. Some of its best features include the Advanced Technology Tread Compound overlying twin steel belts reinforced using the Michelin Branded At Zero (BAZ) process. The design resists hydroplaning and enhances traction on wet roads, making it an excellent handling tire in almost every weather condition.
The Defender LTX M/S is a preferred choice when Winter arrives. Its Evertread compound technology increases traction when there is snow, ice, and icy water covering the streets. It also reduces noise and vibrations for a more comfortable drive in town and on the highway.
Every service Wiygul Automotive offers come with a 2-year warranty. If your Alexandria, VA vehicle needs a new set of Michelin Tires, or another service to include everything from the exhaust to the headlights, call us at 866-702-8050 to schedule an appointment at the Clinic nearest you.
