When you search for tires near me, the results you obtain are only the first step. You have to evaluate shops you fond to decide which shop will provide you with the best value. Depending on your priorities, here is a list of a few things to consider when dealing with a tire shop “near me”: Does it have a wide selection of new tires? Do tire store employees take the time to find out what you need, where you drive your vehicle, and how aggressively you drive your car? Can employees explain benefits and drawback of various tire choices and can they advise which tires would be optimal given your driving style and type of driving – commute, long highway drives, off road, etc. Can the shop provide not only tire mounting and balancing, but also wheel alignment – all during a single visit?

At Adams Tireworx we sell a broad range of tires, and we also keep up to date on the latest developments in the tire industry. Goodyear, a brand we offer, just announced a brand new initiative to create self-regenerating tires. In 2017 about 250 million tires were scrapped in the US alone. Goodyear scientists and engineers decided to redesign a tire, so it can regenerate thread as it wears off. Moreover, they feed data from sensors embedded in the tire into an artificial intelligence program that evaluates the way you drive, and alters the chemistry of the tire to better match your driving style. The secret to reCharge, as Goodyear calls this process, is a special cartridge that rides inside the tire. It contains a liquefied biodegradable tire compound under pressure. As the tire wears down, the pressure differential draws out the compound which oozes through channels in a grid-like structure that automatically molds it into proper shape. When it gets exposed to the air ... read more
Tire Tread Depth At Adams Tireworx in Castro Valley, we often get asked about tire tread depth. It’s actually fairly easy to measure it yourself. Tire tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch. The typical new tire has a tread depth of 10/32nd or 11/32nd of an inch (winter tires and light truck tires are typically deeper). As the tire wears down, the tread depth diminishes. At 2/32nd tread depth, a tire is considered legally worn out in most US states. At our Castro Valley tire shop we use a special tool to measure tire depth. But at home, there is an easy way to tell - take a penny, and stick it, Lincoln’s head down, in the groove of the tire. If you can see Lincoln’s entire head – the tire is worn down to 2/32nd of an inch. It is time to drive to your trusted tire store and get it replaced. Naturally, we suggest you visit Adams Tireworx – we are a full-service tire store and have the best tire selecti ... read more

Its beginning to feel a lot like summer. The time to go camping, go to the lake, go hiking, go to the beach, go off-roading, work on the ranch, going on a road trip, or just going just to go. This is also the time where many blowouts happen due to low tread levels, bulges in tires, and/or dry rot. It can never hurt to get your tires, brakes, suspension, under hood inspected before the road trip to get you the peace of mind while traveling down the road to your favorite fishing hole.
Tire mounting and balancing has changed drastically over the last 10 years. Today, cars are coming with more luxurious wheels and lower profile tires verses 5, even 10 years ago where tires had some more rubber to eliminate many of the road vibrations. Today, a standard wheel balance is no longer considered a "proper wheel balance" as many times, there is still a road force vibration from the tire and even the wheel that can only be found while pressure is put to the wheel and tire such as when driving. The Hunter Road Force Balancer not only performs the standard wheel balancing, it also performs what is called Road Force Balance which applies pressure to the tire as if it were on the car and on the road and measures the stiffness between the tire and wheel. If it were out of specifications, it will then lead the certified technician to sit the tire in a particular spot with the wheel to eliminate the vibrations and then re-check. This sort of balancing is great for all the ... read more
