Santa Rosa CA Automotive Tire Repair

A vehicle's tires rival the brakes as the most important safety device. Understanding the importance that tires play in your vehicle's performance and safety will go a long way in ensuring your ride in Santa Rosa is a safe and comfortable one.

Santa Rosa Hydramatic is considered by many to be the best tire center in Santa Rosa due to our expertise in helping our customers choose the best tire for their automobiles. Our tire experts take the time to explain to our Santa Rosa customers that most tires consist of 4 parts - tread, side walls, inner carcass, and beads. The tread is the part of the tire that meets the surface of the road and provides you with the traction needed when driving the streets in and around Santa Rosa under all types of driving conditions. The side walls are designed to be flexible so as to absorb loads when driving and the inner carcass serves to resist impacts from potholes and bumps. The beads are the part of the tire where the rubber touches the metal of the wheel. Aside from providing a comfortable ride in and around Santa Rosa, tires are designed to cope with the forces often associated with vehicle acceleration, braking, and steering. A common problem faced by many tire manufacturers is that no one tire is best for ALL the road conditions drivers in Santa Rosa experience. The tire experts at Santa Rosa Hydramatic know that your tires must be strong enough to resist damage while having enough flexibility to cushion impacts. Additionally the rubber of the tire needs to be hard enough to provide for thousands of miles when driving on the hard road surfaces of Santa Rosa but soft enough to provide adequate traction when it rains and the roads of Santa Rosa are wet and dangerous. The design of the tire must be a compromise between these conflicting considerations.
