Tires are crucial no matter where you live, but we experience the need for good tires more than usual here in Minnesota. When the streets of Sauk Rapids or Waite Park get snowy and slick, a good set of tires with deep tread can be the difference between getting home safely and sliding off the road. We invite you to visit the tire department at Eich Volkswagen when your VW needs anything tire-related.
Regular tire inspections are essential; during these inspections, our technicians will check the tires for physical damage, measure the tire tread depth, and inspect the tire pressure, adjusting it if needed.
Regular tire rotation ensures that your tires wear down at a relatively even rate; this can help keep you safe and comfortable longer, improve your fuel economy, and make your tires last longer on the road.
If your tires are not properly balanced, they will create an uncomfortable driving experience and may develop an uneven scalloped or cupped wear pattern; we will use OEM tools and small weights to ensure your tires are balanced.
Wheels that are not properly aligned can be dangerous and inconvenient, and they can also lead to your tires wearing down unevenly; we recommend that you visit us at least once a year for wheel alignment service.
If you have a flat tire from a puncture located in the tire tread, chances are we can patch it up for you; however, damage to the tire’s sidewall or shoulder will generally require you to have your tires replaced.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) keeps tabs on your tires to ensure that they are all properly inflated, and we can help you deal with any TPMS problems by performing service on the system.
When your vehicle needs new tires, our tire store has exactly what you need: a selection of high-quality tires that are manufacturer-approved and designed to provide comfort, safety, and long-lasting performance.
Eich Volkswagen offers a wide selection of tires for your Volkswagen, and all of them have been approved by VW. It’s best if you have a set of summer tires and a set of winter tires, and we carry these here. However, we also carry all-season tires. When you choose your set, our technicians can mount and balance them for you.
