Why Should I Shave My Tires?

In the early years of tire manufacturing, most new tires came with extra tread that made them noticeably out-of-round. To make a tire round or "true," motorists would have a tire service center shave the tread. As manufacturing technology advanced and radial tires emerged, there came a point where tire truing wasn't as necessary for most motorists. However, that doesn't mean truing is gone for good nor without benefits today. Even modern tires aren't as round as they could be with a shave. While that might not phase all motorists, those looking for best performance still benefit from truing.

A little tread shaved off can still provide great benefits like:

  • Balance: For the best balance, you need to make sure your tires are as round as possible. If you've had a regular balancing service performed before but still feel vibrations that you know are from your tires, then tire shaving might be the solution you need. We can shave your tire on your vehicle or off using a specialized balancing machine. 
  • Grip: Shaved tires provide better grip on the road, making handling easier. For this reason, tire shaving is popular with sports car and race car drivers.
  • Shape: Manufacturing has improved, but many tires today are still more oval than round. With our tire shaving service, we ensure that your tires are shaped correctly to provide you with the best performance.

Schedule your service with our team today. We look forward to helping you get the maximum value out of your tires. Feel free to contact us over the phone, in person, or online with any questions.
