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.
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 Hi-Tech Automotive.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Hi-Tech Automotive has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 204-261-9591 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Hi-Tech Automotive, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
Hi-Tech Automotive also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Hi-Tech Automotive selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Hi-Tech Automotive, 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 Hi-Tech Automotive 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.
Great customer service with lots of update and keeping you informed. very fair pricing. It's nice to feel valued as well as the technicians are also speedy and cordial. Thanks again.
Very professionally operated facility. The pride that they take in their work and their shop definitely shows!
A very good place to take your car! The mechanics are very professional and know their stuff. One of them even brought me to the back to show me exactly what was wrong with my SUV. Seeing is believing! The prices are fair and the quality of work is excellent.
Prompt and accurate service, watching out for my safety and pocket book by recommending services needed to insure I get to where I am getting and eliminating early wear and tear.
Very knowledgeable. Great at communicating what the problem was with my vehicle.
I find the service at Hi-Tech to be extremely good. In fact the day after I had work done on my car I sent a friend over with his vehicle to get work done. He really likes Hi-Tech Auto as well. I also recommended Hi-Tech to a third customer you currently have for his vehicle. Keep up the great work! I'll be coming back for more work soon.
VERY IMPRESSED with my first experience at Hi Tech! They were able to DIAGNOSE AND REPAIR the problem with my SUV that my dealership could not. They provided me with an explanation of the problem as well as a very detailed estimate. I was even able to talk to my mechanic one on one. My repair was swift and I was back on the road in no time. The staff was very knowledgeable. I will definitely be returning for all my maintenance work and future repairs.
These guys are great! I've been to quite a few other shops in Winnipeg, but this was by far my best experience. The drop off was simple and they asked me the questions needed to target my issue and not waste any time. They called me quickly with an estimate of what I needed and had me back on the road the same day! Prices were reasonable and the repair was explained clearly in a way I understood. They kept me informed and that made me very happy! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone!!!
Needed a muffler repair, got in immediately and it was repaired promptly. Total cost was lower then the estimate, as they were so quick. The issues were explained very clearly and thoroughly, and all options of repair were made available. Very efficient, honest and friendly, 10/10 would recommend! I'll definitely be returning for future car needs!
I had an amazing experience at Hi-Tech thanks to the incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. They took extra time to explain my car issues in layman's terms so that I could make an informed decision about my car repairs which I greatly appreciated. I felt no pressure at all to do the repairs they recommended. I felt they genuinely wanted what was best for me and my car. Fair pricing and you get what you pay for here. Highly recommend.
