It is very important to remember to stick to your owner’s manual and have your tires rotated on a regular basis. Don’t know where your owner’s manual is? Give us a call, and we will let you know.

Rotating your tires is important as each wheel has a specific job and can develop inconsistent wear if left to long. This can in turn lead to early tire replacement and we know no one wants that.

AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Works with Our Customer and Will Use Customer Parts

1965 Buick Riviera Restoration

This 1965 Buick Riviera is in the midst of a restoration by the owner. The owner recognized there was some work that was a little more than they had the time to undertake so they gave AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignments classic car specialists a call. We installed many new front-end parts, some we supplied and about 25% were provided by the customer.

This Riviera is almost ready for the next step in its restoration process; all that is left is the center link. Unfortunately, this classic has a unique center link and required us to send it to Stockton to be rebuilt.

As the weather continues to worsen and the roads get wet and icy, this could have been an accident waiting to happen!

AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment’s certified technicians took the front end apart to diagnose the cause of this unusual wear and found multiple loose parts in the front end. Our car care technicians also noted the front brakes were at 1/32 which is almost steel on steel. After, AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment front end specialist explained all of his concerns to the customer, the customer decided to have us do an alignment, replace both front tires and the brakes.

If you have a fleet of vehicles or just your daily commuter and you don’t remember the last time your tires were rotated or just want to feel a little safer on the roads as the weather continues to get colder, call AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment for an appointment today.

The Perils of Hunting!

2011 Toyota Tacoma brake line

The owner of this 2011 Toyota Tacoma was out in the back-country elk hunting and had a nasty run in with a snow bank. The right rear brake line was ripped apart. Luckily the owner was able to come up with a temporary solution to complete his hunt and make it home safely.

The owner requested our certified car care technicians replace all of his flex hoses with steel braided hoses. They are stronger, but we do not guarantee they will survive the back-country. The photo above to the right shows the old flex hoses on the left side of the truck.
