Each time you get behind the wheel, you depend on your brake system to arrive at your destination without incident. Good brakes are responsive, halting your vehicle at expected red lights and unexpected encounters. But brake parts don't last forever. Over the lifetime of your car or truck, you should expect to replace brake pads and rotors at least once.
When it's time for replacement brakes or you run into problems stopping your car, contact Childs Tire. We offer brake service for disc brakes and drum brakes.

Your suspension system determines ride comfort and the ease with which yo control your vehicle. Whenever you hit a bump in the road, the shocks (or struts depending on your vehicle) absorb most of the impact, so you have a comfortable ride. As your shocks or struts wear, your tires bounce higher and lose grip. This makes your vehicle more difficult to control and creates a bumpy ride.
We perform the following steering and suspension services:
Contact Childs Tire when you need new shocks and struts. We specialize in suspension service with quality replacement parts.
When you car is out of alignment, visit Childs Tire for service. Our facility features a Hunter Hawkeye Elite Alignment System that quickly and accurately identifies misalignment areas, saving you time.
Each tire and wheel needs to be installed at precise measurements for long tread life and better fuel economy. Your vehicle manufacturer determines what angles work best.
If your vehicle doesn't have its wheels positioned at the ideal angles, then you may notice irregular treadwear or need to fight the steering wheel to prevent your vehicle from drifting while driving.
A wheel alignment corrects the angles of each tire-wheel assembly, so they point in the proper direction. This promotes long tire life and better fuel efficiency.
Through time and regular driving, it's possible for misalignment to occur. Suspension parts wear out and become loose over time. This affects the wheel angles known as camber, caster, and toe. Another way for misalignment to occur is to hit a pot hole particularly hard or collide with another vehicle or object.
Depending on your vehicle make and model, you'll need either a four-wheel alignment or two-wheel alignment.
