TIRES

Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.

We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.


Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Avenue Tire & Service.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Avenue Tire & Service has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 231-843-3414 if you have questions, or schedule an appointment so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Avenue Tire & Service, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Avenue Tire & Service to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.


Bridgestone
Cooper
Firestone
Goodyear
Hankook

Also they can tell me of upcoming possible repairs that I may need. They are very patient with their customers and they go the extra mile. Hard to find good service like that. I recommend this local shop to anyone.

  • The folks at Ludington Avenue Tire & Service were helpful and professional. They helped me find a new tire at a good price, and even helped me with the warranty on my flat. Great job.
    -James S.

  • The Ludington Avenue Tire & Service shop has maintained my 15 year old 170,000 mile Ford for the last 6 years. This appointment was a great example of their trusted service: I thought I had transmission issues and had asked for a flush and screen change at $170. They test drove the vehicle and found the engine was miss firing and cancelled the transmission work, Made time for hood lock repair and an oil change. All well performed and reasonably priced. I can't recommend this location any higher!
