When Do My Shocks Need to be Replaced?

Posted May 7, 2015 2:10 PM | in Shocks & Struts


A good suspension system gives a vehicle a smooth, even ride while providing St. Charles motorists with good handling and control. But like any system on your car, critical parts of the suspension system can wear out, leading to a lower ride quality and safety concerns. So it’s a good idea for St. Charles motorists to remember a diagnostic examination of their suspension system in their schedule of a key preventive maintenance.

Posted April 16, 2015 9:34 AM | in Windshield Wipers


When St. Charles drivers talk about vehicle safety, they think of tires and brakes. But do we think about our windshields? Isn’t the ability to see a prime safety factor when it comes to driving around MO? Yet we often don’t even notice our windshields until we can’t see through them, or until our wiper blades fail. It’s estimated that around 46 million people are driving with wipers that won’t keep their windshields clear during a storm — that’s 46 million people with&hellip» read more

Below 45 Degrees in St. Charles: Consider Winter Tires

Posted April 3, 2015 2:28 PM | in Tires and Wheels


Remember snow tires? They were basically just regular tires with big, knobby lugs to get them through deep snow. They were loud and rode hard, and St. Charles drivers couldn’t wait to get them off the car. Then along came television advertisements for “all-season” radials. MO car owners ran out and bought some and we thought we were done with snow tires forever. Tires have come a long way since then. Modern winter tires sold in the St. Louis area are much better&hellip» read more

Problems with Suspension Solved at SafeWay Tire & Auto Center in St. Charles

Posted March 17, 2015 1:50 PM | in Suspension


A vehicle’s suspension system is tough. It can last for years and tens of thousands of miles for St. Charles car owners. But it can be damaged quickly by hitting a pothole, curb or rock, and it can wear more quickly if you frequently drive off-road or on bumpy roads. A workhorse vehicle — one that hauls heavy loads — is also going to be hard on its suspension system. Because the useful life of your suspension system contains these elements of unpredictability, it is important for St. Charles auto owners to have them inspected periodically. Worn, broken and missing&hellip» read more

Posted March 13, 2015 8:50 AM | in Tires and Wheels


If you’re interested in customizing the wheels and tires on your car, there are a few things you should know first. Most importantly, the wheels you buy need to fit your vehicle.
