Clark Automotive is committed to ensuring that your vehicle—whether you drive an old beater, a vintage ride, a sports car, or a heavy-duty pick-up truck—remains in good contact with the surfaces you drive on. There are no more important or basic components of a car than its tires and no more important function than staying in safe contact with the road. We offer services to repair and replace tires, to carefully align your tires, and to ensure that the suspension system that they are a part of is in good working order.
Tire Repair and Replacement
If one of your tires looks a little flat, you may take a closer look and see a silver nail-head in the tread. Sure enough, that nail is causing a slow leak on a brand-new tire. You may think you have no choice but to pay for a new tire, but if you take your car to St. Paul Automotive, the chances are good that we will be able to fix your tire for you. Most punctures in the tread of a tire can be repaired to be as good as new. If you find a puncture in the sidewall of a tire, we can certainly take a closer look at it, but most sidewall punctures mean that a replacement tire is necessary. If your tires have worn down to the point that they no longer have adequate tread to ensure your grip on a driving surface, Clark Automotive can help you replace your tires. We offer competitive prices and only the best customer service and installation expertise.
Accounting for the fact that your vehicle’s front two wheels turn, all four of your vehicle’s wheels should be in alignment when the steering wheel points your vehicle straight ahead. This means that your vehicle should not move from a straight line if the steering wheel does not move from that position. However, there are many things that can cause a vehicle to go out of alignment, which typically causes it to pull to the right or left. St. Paul Automotive can return your vehicle to optimal alignment.
The suspension system of your vehicle provides its stability when driving over uneven surfaces. If your suspension system—which includes shock absorbers or struts—is compromised, your contact with the road may not be reliable. Driving at speed, you may experience a bouncing effect when hitting normal highway bumps, and this means you may not be able to maneuver your vehicle safely. Clark Automotive has the experience and expertise to return your suspension to optimal safety.
