Tire Pressure & Rotation
We also provide tire pressure adjustments to ensure you are getting the best gas mileage and the most life out of your tires. It’s a good idea to rotate your tires every 7,500 miles or every 7 months to ensure even tire wear. The rotation process can be done quickly in about 15 minutes.
Along with tire pressure adjustment and rotation, wheel alignment can also prolong the life of your tires and ensure smooth, steady driving at any speed. If your vehicle is pulling to one side or your steering wheel shakes even while driving straight, you may need a wheel alignment. Vintage Mechanical Works has well-maintained digital alignment system to deliver precision every time.
We also provide brake repairs, including replacing brake pads and rotors, repairing leaking brake lines, and replacing brake fluid as needed. If your brake pedal feels softer than normal or you hear a high pitched noise when applying the brakes, you should have your brakes checked and repaired soon to avoid a dangerous driving situation. Our mechanics can repair your brakes within a few hours.
